Using warm colours in your kitchen

With summer just around the corner, and the weather not quite matching up, using warm colours in the kitchen can be a great idea. But what are warm colours? And can they work well in any kitchen, with any style? Well, here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design specialists. From large open plan kitchens, to galley kitchens, we can offer something to suit any home, and size kitchen space. As a result, we have produced this guide to using warm colours in your kitchen.

Which colours are warm?

So, first of all, you will need to consider which colours can be classed as warm? Well, there are several, including:

  • orange
  • red
  • yellow

These three colours are accosiated with fire, and this association means that they ar very often viewed as warm colours.

Using warm colours in your kitchen

So, how can you use these colours in your kitchen? Well, there are several ways to introduce and include warm colours, including:

  • Adding a kitchen splashback- whether you opt for a solid surface splashback, or a tiled area, you could choose any of the warm colours to add energy and personality to your kitchen. However, this will need to complement the rest of your kitchen colour scheme. White or black kitchens for example, could be perfectly suited to a warm kitchen splashback. This is also a good option for any style of kitchen too.
  • Kitchen cabinet colours- choosing coloured kitchen cabinets can be a great way to add warmth to your kitchen. Red can be a good choice, as it works well with a plain background of white or black, which are both popular kitchen colours.
  • Kitchen worktops- if using full coloured cabinets might be too much colour, why not opt instead for just a warm worktop. This could be isolated, like the worktop on your kitchen island, or it could be across your whole kitchen. Again, this will need to match with the rest of your kitchen colour scheme.
