The Heart of your Home – The Kitchen

July 31, 2017


The kitchen is the number one gathering place for family. In fact, most homeowners maintain that even during the holidays, birthday parties and other gatherings that everyone ends up in the kitchen at some time or other. If your kitchen is often the hub of activity for friends and relatives, then you will want the color choice to inspire and “wow” everyone who enters it.

The good news is that there are are certain colors that work best in specific rooms. When it comes to kitchens, white, gray, blue, red, yellow, and green really shine. Each of these shades can do something different for the room, but they all help create a warm and welcoming space. The choice is ultimately yours, but keep in mind these questions as you choose from the wide assortment on the color wheel.

  • What message do you want to send to your family, friends and guests? Do you hope to stimulate appetite? Red may be a good choice then. If you want to convey the look of a crisp and clean area, you may want to choose hues of white or gray with a pop of color on the backsplash.
  • What rooms are adjacent or feed into the kitchen? If your home is like many newer homes, a Great Room feeds into or opens into the kitchen. If this is the case, you will want to consider coordinating colors with this room as you will want to both have flow but also differentiate each area.
  • What is your personality? Are you more of a traditionalists or are you willing to try something new? Colors in the kitchen can showcase your personality. Choose a color palette that will make you happy. Keep in mind that painting the kitchen doesn’t just mean painting the walls, the cabinetry can be painted to change the entire look of your kitchen.
