Colour is an important element in design and decoration because it helps create the desired mood for your kitchen. Colours are inspirational, because we tend to associate some thought to particular colours, and colours also reflect the natural world, for instance, the many shades of blue paint reflect the sky or sea.
The choice of colour would reflect individual preferences at the time. However, you should note that colour is affected by light (natural and artificial); natural because large windows will give rooms high illumination, and ample artificial lighting from more than one source can offer good illumination as well. Also, the colour of the wall during the day would look different at night.
Colour can be achieved in paint, fabric or print. There are so much colours available that the kitchen re-modeler could become quite confused. For this reason, many think white is the safest colour for any room, especially the kitchen. However, don’t choose a colour in isolation; your colour should relate to the following: the mood you want to portray, the quality of light (both artificial and natural) in the kitchen, the surfaces and finishes (that is the texture and gloss or flatness of the finish of furniture, cabinets, and flooring), and the type of furniture and pictures in the room.
Many decorators believe this is the great age for colour in decorating, and your kitchen and eating area can come alive with the use of warm, cheeful colours. There is no need to have your kitchen in a dull neutral colour.
