Use A Combination of Colors

Using more than a color for your kitchen can be impressive and fun. A great way for you to use a variety of colors is by choosing colors that are opposite to one another, as these colors complement each other. There are a lot of complementary colors you can choose for your kitchen cabinets. For example, you can bring your kitchen to life by making use of orange and blue. Despite these colors being directly opposite each other on the color wheel, they can be paired together to give your kitchen a lively modern look and feel. Also, to make your kitchen look and feel larger, you can make use of yellow as the room's anchor hue and add red accents to accentuate the design.

Consider Your Kitchen's Size, Shape and Lighting

Generally, you can paint your kitchen with any color of your choice. However, before you pick a color palette, make sure to carefully observe the size, shape and natural lighting of your kitchen. For instance, if you have a small kitchen that has a low ceiling with little natural lights, making use of dark colors will make your space look unwelcoming. In this instance, you will want to incorporate light colors such as white, to make your kitchen look brighter and more welcoming. However, if you have a large kitchen that has a high ceiling with a lot of lights, experimenting with darker colors will still make your kitchen feel airy and welcoming.
