The room, where the sacrament of cooking and baking takes place, should be light, cozy and adjusted to positive emotions. It is here that in the morning we drink tea or coffee, at lunch we collect all together for a weekend meal, and in the evening we arrange romantic dinners. Therefore, the color scheme for the kitchen should be positive and give a source of inexhaustible inspiration. Naturally, every mistress has her favorite color, but this does not mean that he is suitable for this room.
Kitchen - this is the place where not only cook, but also, in the absence of excess space for the dining room, also take food. Therefore, the choice of colors for the kitchen set, walls, ceiling and floor should be correct, and the chosen tones should suit all household members.
How to expand the space
It's no secret that some colors "cool", and others "warm". The same can be said about the effect of increasing space. There are shades that visually expand the room and create an airy and light atmosphere, and vice versa.
The color scheme of the kitchen should take into account its size, household preferences, the amount of daylight and so on. For a small room it is better to use light shades, diluting them with bright and juicy impregnations of accessories. It is better to use dark tones for a minimum.
The same applies to ceiling structures: the darker and higher the ceiling, the less gloomy the room looks.
You can note the use of dark tones in large rooms: here they look more appropriate, slightly reducing the space, making it comfortable and habitable.
Choose a color
The color scheme of the kitchen should not be too bright or have complex geometric patterns: it is more distracting than contributing to the creative process of cooking culinary masterpieces. For a room that is often cooked, it is better to choose cold shades, they will be some sort of "cooler". Such tones can easily be supplemented with bright accessories, for example, potholders and apron of orange color, flowers on the windowsill in pots of purple or green hues - everything depends on the preferences of the hostess.
For the rustic style it is better to use light pastel colors, they are perfectly combined with stylish wooden furniture and clay or porcelain plates and cups.
Many designers insist on using natural and natural shades that relax. Bright colors, on the contrary, can cause irritability or rapid fatigue, while a light tone can always be revived, only by changing a few accessories or by purchasing new utensils.
If you prefer bright colors, use them only for one element, for example, the color scheme of the kitchen can be olive, and the furniture is made in purple with chrome elements. In this case, bright walls favorably influence the mood of a person, and a dark shade will stimulate working capacity.
As for the light
In rooms with minimal natural light, it is necessary to use not only warm and natural tones, but also to install more lighting. It can be cream and wood shades.
It is worth noting that some lamps are able to slightly distort or change the palette of the kitchen, so it's better not to experiment with unusual tones, most likely, they will look bad and can spoil the entire interior.
The color scheme of rooms with windows to the north should be bright and warm, but in rooms with windows to the south it is undesirable to use very light or very dark colors. In the sun, light shades will "blind" the eyes, but the dark ones will burn out after a while and lose their nobility.
In general, dictating to someone the conditions of the color palette of the kitchen is meaningless, since a person will necessarily do everything in his own way. However, to bring the reasonable arguments that are written in the article, it is still important: perhaps these facts will help to choose the right color for a room that everyone loves.
