Effects Of Colored Kitchen Cabinetry

Our kitchen showroom in Englewood, NJ has offered and designed colored cabinetry for over a decade. Many of our clients these days enjoy including one or more color spots in their kitchen design, especially when aiming for a modern or transitional kitchen design. While the majority of our clients tends to focus on their favorite color, we always want to ensure that the “side effects” of cabinetry color choices are also being kept in mind. For example, certain kitchen cabinet colors can stimulate hunger, while others can decrease it. Since the kitchen is such an important space, we need to give importance to its design including its cabinet color scheme. The overall design of the kitchen will largely dictate how your space is being used and how people as well as guests will feel when they are in the kitchen, both on a daily basis and when hosting a party. Our design team is happy to tell you more about the effects and implications of different kitchen cabinet colors during a complimentary kitchen design consultation at our showroom in NJ.

Kitchen Color Palettes

In general, there are warm and cold kitchen cabinet colors. Warm color palettes, like different nuances of red through to yellow, with browns and tans included, are known to be stimulating colors when used in your kitchen space. You may want to incorporate these kitchen colors to give your mood a boost in the morning or to create an appetite when spending time in the kitchen. In contrast, cold color palettes, like variations of blue through to indigo with grays included, tend to create a calming effect. Using greens and violets for your custom kitchen cabinets will help to create balance as well as tranquility. Experts say that it is a good idea to strike a nice balance of stimulating and relaxing colors in your kitchen environment, thus allowing yourself to come down while remaining engaged.

Impact of Kitchen Colors on Space

When considering what kitchen cabinet color will be best for your kitchen project, it is also important to consider the overall size and layout of your interior space. For example, dark colors tend to make a space feel smaller. Therefore, a small kitchen space would not benefit from dark colors but would only make the space feel smaller than it already is. Logically then, light colors will make a space feel more expansive, making lighter cabinet colors very suitable for small kitchen spaces. If you would like to make a large room feel smaller or vice versa, playing with light and dark tones may be a good idea. Alternatively, sticking to medium-range tones or neutral colors, like white kitchen cabinets, may be a safe bet. By bringing in your floor plan and ideally even pictures of your interior space to our kitchen showroom, our kitchen design team will be able to assist you in terms of which colors to choose for what design elements.

Kitchen Colors Impacting Appetite

Did you know that some colors stimulate hunger, while others decrease it? Below is some information on colors and their relationship to important environmental issues in the kitchen. If you want to create a kitchen space and design that increases appetite and inspires hunger in your family and guests, make sure to embrace a warm color palette in your kitchen cabinets. Especially variations of red, orange and yellow are known to stimulate hunger. This may be why those golden arches at McDonalds that we all know and love so well are accompanied with red signage! In contrast, a cold color scheme in your kitchen space, including variations of blues, violets and indigos, will usually decrease hunger, an effect especially desirable for overweight or obese chefs. The kitchen cabinet color green is somewhere in the middle and is known for instilling balance in humans, meaning it usually won’t have any impact on appetite at all. So, if you want people to hang out in the kitchen but not necessarily be driven to eat everything in sight, this cool color palette may be your go-to relaxing colors, thus allowing people to kick back while remaining engaged.

Kitchen Colors Impacting Mood

In the same way that colors can change the level of hunger in your individual kitchen space, they can also affect people’s mood. This is prevalent in rooms outside of the kitchen, of course, but nevertheless – the effects will be just as common in the luxury kitchen as they will be in another space. Make sure to choose warm colors if you want to feel excited, happy, more energized and are looking for positive moods. Also, if you often eat breakfast in the kitchen, you may want to incorporate warm colors to give your mood a boost in the morning (not to mention, to create a little appetite). And better stick to cold color palettes if you prefer to feel more balanced, chilled, calm and want to let go of your energy while spending time in your kitchen. Keep in mind that lighting will also be a factor in determining which color scheme works best for your new modern kitchen and mood, and is hence also a significant factor when thinking about the effects on mood, which you wish to achieve in your interior space. Rest assured that our kitchen designers will suggest the best direct and indirect lighting solutions for your specific, individual kitchen design, layout and space. There are various different lighting options available, some of which you can even change depending on the time of the day.

Neutral Colors In Your Kitchen

If you would like to use a color for your kitchen design project, but don’t necessarily want it to have an impact on your appetite or mood, there is one more color option we haven’t mentioned yet – green kitchen cabinetry. The color green is somewhere right in the middle of warm and cold colors and designs. It is known to instill balance in humans, meaning they won’t get hungry or lose their appetites. Therefore, if you want your kitchen to be a particularly tranquil place, incorporating green colors into your overall design plan could be very beneficial. Experts say that it’s a good idea to strike a nice balance of stimulating and relaxing colors in your kitchen environment, thus allowing yourself to come down while remaining engaged. Since the kitchen is such an important space, we need to give importance to its design. The overall color choice of your American or Italian high-end kitchen will largely dictate how the space is used, how people feel when they are in the kitchen, and what type of mood settles over a crowd at a party held in the kitchen.

Colored Kitchen Cabinet Considerations

As with any addition to the kitchen space, the overall style of the kitchen must be considered when choosing a color for the kitchen cabinets. For traditional kitchens, choosing ultra-modern color schemes, such as stark grays and reds, may not be the best choice. Creating a harmonious kitchen is about discovering a cohesive theme in the design. Lastly, it is important to consider how long you plan on keeping your current home, and whether the color of your Cesar kitchen cabinets could affect the price of your home. If you choose something very specific that does not match the rest of the home, potential buyers may see the kitchen as something that they would have to replace in order to enjoy living in the home. This can be a major issue for potential buyers, so it should be considered when you are making your kitchen cabinet color decision.

Factors Impacting Your Color Decisions

It is important to consider several factors prior to your kitchen color decision, like how long you plan on staying in your current home, and whether the color of the kitchen cabinets that you choose could affect the price of your home. If you choose something very specific that does not match the rest of the home, a potential buyer may see the kitchen as something that he or she would have to replace in order to enjoy living in the home. This can be a major issue for potential buyers, so it should be considered when you are making your decision. As with any addition to the kitchen space, the overall style of the kitchen must be considered when choosing a color for the kitchen cabinets. Traditional kitchens with ultra-modern color schemes such as stark grays and reds will feel off. Similarly, a modern luxury kitchen with walnut cabinets may feel strange. Creating a harmonious kitchen is about discovering a cohesive theme in the design.

Size And Style Of Your Kitchen

There are also several other considerations to take into account. The size and style of your kitchen cabinetry will obviously be deciding factors in what cabinetry is chosen. So too will, the combination of cabinetry colors and tones, which is an often overlooked but incredibly important aspect of choosing the right combinations of cabinets for a kitchen space. Depending on your style preferences, you may also want to take into consideration the overall style of your home. If a particular wood is used in other parts of the home, it may be nice to stick with the same variety and tone of wood in the kitchen. Again, harmony is created through cohesiveness across spaces, and tying your kitchen into the rest of the home may help to do this. In addition to size, lighting will be a factor in determining which color scheme is best for a kitchen. If the space is small and dim, dark cabinets will only make that issue worse. Although a bright kitchen can utilize any color choice, a dark space will want to shy away from dark cabinetry and instead lean toward lighter varieties.

Meaning of Today’s Kitchen

For many people, the kitchen plays multiple important roles in the life of the family. The luxury kitchen is more than just a place to prepare food. For many, it is the epicenter of activity. The kitchen is often where the kids do homework, where mom and dad visit over a glass of wine, and where guests gather before a dinner party. Increasingly, the kitchen is becoming less of a behind-the-scenes type space, where food is prepared and then brought to a dining room. Instead, many families are now dining right in the kitchen, which makes any kitchen color consideration so important not just for yourself, but for the whole family and guests.
