Colour can have an effect on our mood. Some studies have confirmed the effect of colour on the perception of individuals. For this reason, your kitchen can become your private place to unwind, revamp, and re-energize.
Colour therapy is nothing new, for we have all, in some way or another, been aware of the effects of colours on our physical health, moods, and attitudes. This is why it is important to think about the type of colour or two, if you are seeking a complementary colour, for your kitchen.
Eight Colour Theraphy
For this reason it is good to understand which colour is best to use in the kitchen. If we refer to colour therapy, we would focus on eight predominant colours: red, orange, yellow, green turquoise, blue, violet, and magenta. These colours are known to energize, inspire, and excite.
The blue in this kitchen helps create a cool, calming effect. Blue is known to help people feel happy and safe. Blue is also a colour that gives us the impression of expansion and space.
This green colour is easy on the eye. It also has a livening effect on the mind. Green represents nature so the room seems calm and refreshing.
Yellow complements this room. It adds a color of sunshine and helps to create a feeling of happiness. Yellow can be an uplifting colour, however its limited use here helps keep the mind positive.
White and black are neutral colours. Neutral colours are neither warm nor cold. They are contrasting colours. however the predominant white exudes a feeling of purity, innocence and cleanliness; the black stove adds a stylish and timeless feel to the room and creates a focus point for the stove in this kitchen.
The predominance of brown in this room reflects the colour of earth. Even though there is much artistry in this room through the use of patterns, the brown in the room helps keeps the room seeming simplistic and organized.
