Guide to choosing a kitchen colour scheme

Colour is one of the most important parts of interior design, and it can have a psychological impact on your mood. From calming effects, to energising results, different colours have a different impact. So how should you go about deciding on a kitchen colour scheme? Here at Homematas in Preston, we are kitchen design experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to choosing a kitchen colour scheme.

Colour psychology

The first step to consider in our guide to choosing a kitchen colour scheme is colour pyschology. Each of us has an emotional connection to various colours, and different colours represent different emotions. These include:

So, which of these colours can create the perfect kitchen colour scheme?

Now that we know some basic colour psychology, its time to apply this to the kitchen. First of all, we need to consider the purpose of the kitchen. For different households, this will mean different things. Some households may rarely use their kitchen, while for others it may be combined with a dining room to be the family hub of the home. As a result, different colours will be beneficial for different households.

Yellow for example, has the benefit of being a colour associated with creativity. This could show that your kitchen is a place for culinary talent. From expert baking to creating family meals, creativity is often important in the kitchen.

On the other hand, green or blue colours can be relaxing and calming. This can make the kitchen a place of comfort and pleasure, where your family can chat over delicious food.

Colour also has practical implications…

Kitchen colour schemes not only alter our mood and create the right atmosphere, they can also be practical. Colour has the ability to make smaller kitchens feel larger, or narrow kitchens feel wider.

In a smaller kitchen, you should consider light colours. These can reflect the light, and make your kitchen feel larger. Avoid colours that are too bright, or too dark as this can have the opposite practical implication for your kitchen colour scheme.

In summary

Kitchen colour schemes play an important part in helping to create the perfect kitchen. We hope you found our guide to choosing a kitchen colour scheme helpful. Why not visit us here at Homematas, online or in our Preston based store, for more kitchen inspiration?
