This post is provided by Gary Wilson. The kitchen is the heart of the home. It is a place of warmth and laughter, so the color scheme and overall décor should reflect that. There is nothing duller than the cliché white kitchen. When you are renovating your kitchen, you have the chance to not only change the aesthetics of the room, but to get new appliances or have faulty appliances touched up. Bringing a few appliance repair specialists in during your home renovations is the best way to ensure that you are pleased with the final result. If you are the type of person who struggles with renovation because you have no idea what colors to choose, this list will help you. All of the fun colors below would liven up a boring old kitchen in no time. Forest Green Think deep emerald green, dark woods and loads of rustic accents. Using a tranquil and dark color scheme like this instantly transforms any kitchen into a peaceful getaway. The warmth of wood will keep the room from looking clinical while the rich green colors will bring it to life. Try to match the appliances and décor in the room to the color scheme as much as possible. Wood paneled appliances or silver appliances work best, while fabrics (for example, curtains) look best in dark emerald green shades. Include a few small works of art on the wall to make the room look more sophisticated. If your budget allows it, a wooden floor will complete this rustic feel. Remember that a house’s décor should be connected, so do not use this theme in your kitchen if your dining room is all monochrome and glass. There should be a single theme present throughout the entire home. Feeling Blue Looking for something more subtle to change your kitchen? Consider adding pops of blue. Painting your cabinets a bold blue color or adding powder blue knobs to your drawers may not seem like a big renovation, but it is often these small details that can make or break how well put together a room seems. This idea could work in any existing kitchen. Blue works well with wood, tiles and just about all colors (except warm colors, like red.) It is easy to implement and will be kind to your wallet. Not crazy about blue? This minimalist approach to renovation can work with any color. A pop of pink could work just as well. Certain colors will create certain moods within your home, so make sure to choose wisely when redecorating. Fiery Red If you are the type of person who loves to entertain guests, a bold kitchen would suit you. Bold red colors in a kitchen creates a feeling of warmth and passion, perfect for the passionate cook and host. Your guests can sip on wine as red as your kitchen while you prepare delicious meals and marvel at how stylish you are. If you are looking to wow all your friends and family, a bold red kitchen is the right choice for you.
