Phoenix Kitchen Remodeling: Kitchen Color Schemes

Kitchen Color SchemesChoosing from what may seem like an infinite number of kitchen color schemes can be both thrilling and overwhelming.

How do you decide? From a basic black and white kitchen to every other combination of possible hues under the sun, selecting the right colors can be easy by following these tips:

  • Cabinet colors: More often than less, kitchen cabinets usually take up approximately 50 percent of your budget and take up about 40 percent of the visual space in a kitchen. Therefore, it’s best to start the process by choosing a cabinet color that fits your personal style before deciding on the other colors in your kitchen.
  • Appliance colors: Your cabinet order should not be finalized until you know which appliances you want to buy. As focal points, your sink and appliances can have a big impact on your overall color scheme.
  • Flooring colors: When picking a kitchen floor color, it’s important to make sure that it coordinates well with the cabinets, countertops and appliances, as well as with the floors in adjoining rooms.
  • Wall color: The kitchen walls play a vital role. While they are often concealed by cabinetry, try to pick a color that balances well with the floors, cabinets and backsplash.
  • Countertop colors: Your kitchen countertops occupy a large portion of your visual space. Be sure to bring a sample of your cabinetry color to help you choose a complementary countertop color.
  • Backsplash color: There are many backsplash options that can either coordinate or clash with your color scheme. If you need extra help, don’t hesitate to enlist the services of a designer when selecting a backsplash.

Still feeling overwhelmed? Take a step back and consider the overall effect you want. Are you hoping for a bright, welcoming kitchen or a luxurious, high-end, gourmet effect?
