Kitchen Colors Impacting Appetite & Mood
And last, but not least, if you want to create a kitchen space and design that increases appetite, make sure to embrace a warm color palette in your kitchen cabinets. Especially variations of red, orange and yellow are known to stimulate hunger. 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. In the same way that colors can change the level of hunger, they can also affect people’s mood. Just to repeat, choose warm colors if you want to feel excited, happy and more energized and stick to cold color palettes if you prefer to feel more balanced, chilled and calm. Keep in mind that lighting will also be a factor in determining which color scheme works best for your new kitchen and mood, but rest assured that our kitchen designers will automatically suggest the best direct and indirect lighting solutions for your specific, individual kitchen design, layout and space.
