You have almost endless options when it comes to kitchen color schemes, making it hard to choose one. The kitchen is where the family spends most of their time and, sometimes, where you entertain guests so you want it to be pleasing to the eyes.
Read on for tips on choosing the kitchen color scheme.
Go for Colors That You Love
You should feel joy whenever you step into your kitchen. While you can consider popular colors and the latest trends, at the end of the day, it’s still best to choose the colors you love. Popular colors will be easier to find, especially for accessories and accents, but there are a lot of classic colors that will give your space a timeless look.
Select the Color of Your Cabinets First
If your kitchen renovation involves replacing or repainting cabinets, it’s a good idea to start with them first. Cabinetry can take up around half of your budget depending on the material and hardware you choose. It can also make up around 40% of your kitchen’s visual space so it would help to make it the basis of your next color selections.
Choose Appliance Colors
When it comes to your kitchen appliances, you can choose from either built-in or freestanding. Built-in appliances are integrated into your kitchen cabinetry while freestanding can stand on their own. If you prefer freestanding appliances, consider how the front of the appliances will look with the rest of the cabinets. You can’t have your cabinets finalized unless you have decided which appliances you’re planning to buy.
Select Countertop and Flooring Colors
Countertops can consume a significant amount of your kitchen’s visual space. They should complement your cabinets to maintain harmony. Another important component of your kitchen is the floor. You should make sure that the kitchen floor color works well with the other elements of the space. A common rule of thumb is to go for the second dominant color.
