A phenomenon of light or a visual perception that makes one differentiate identical objects, color creates a strong impact on every visual representation and that includes your painted kitchen. One importance of painting your kitchen or your house, for that matter, is preservation.
But it does not necessarily mean that when the primary purpose of painting your kitchen is to help preserve it, you would have to take style for granted. Now the question that you may have is, “What is the right color for my kitchen?” Well, the most appropriate answer for that question is that the right color is the one that matches your personality or preferred style.
If the effect that you want to achieve is a clean look then you will have to go for a monochromatic scheme. Generally, the colors involved include white, yellow, peach, and other light colors. The kitchen has to be painted in a single color, thus creating a neat look. To avoid the kitchen from looking boring, you can display a vase filled with colorful flowers in one corner. You can also make up for the lack of color through your rugs and curtains.
You can also go for complementary scheme, which means that you can have two bright colors that complement each other. If you take a look at the color wheel, you will see the colors that complement each other. Yellow and violet and blue and green, for instance, are complementary colors. But of course, you can make your own adjustments according to your style or taste. Furthermore, you can be more experimental by going analogous. This color scheme involves three colors that are adjacent on the color wheel.
Besides relying on the color wheel, the color of your kitchen may also be inspired from the colors of the things that are associated with kitchens. One apparent association with a kitchen is food, which inspires bold colors of red, orange, and green. On the other hand, if you are trying to achieve a Victorian kitchen, colors like emerald green, ruby, and sapphire help achieve a Victorian feel. Moreover, you can have the color and style of your kitchen that suits your lifestyle, personality, or taste by having a bespoke kitchen.
The painting materials are also important as much as the color itself. Generally, the quality of your paint depends on the amount of money that you have invested for it. Thus, spending a little more means the paint will last longer. With regards to your rollers and brushes, it is recommended that you use synthetic materials if you choose to use latex paint.
Making yourself informed before deciding, apparently, is important when choosing the color of your kitchen or its whole feel and look, for that matter. Do not hesitate to ask for help from professionals or some opinions from others although they must not primarily dictate your decision.
While you can have the help of professionals, you can also have the painting or repainting of your kitchen as a family activity or bonding. Each of the family members can work together, mix and match, and play with colors together. The kitchen, in general, is where the family comes together to prepare and share meals together. It is a place where memories are created and retold. Hence, it must be functional, must make each of the family members comfortable and look good at the same time. It must cater to you and your family’s needs and taste.
Choose the colors and the quality of the paint carefully, preserve your kitchen, apply your creativity, and make it easier on the eyes all at the same time.
