As you consider redecorating your kitchen, color is always a big consideration. Depending on the style that you want to embrace, you may want to keep your appliances and the bones of your kitchen crisp and light, or you may want to saturate it with color. It simply depends on the look and feel that you want to create in your kitchen space. It may also depend on how open your kitchen is to the rest of your house, because you may have to tie your design into a great room or family room if you have an open kitchen.

Regardless of what your color constraints are for your kitchen, you can still create any feel for the room that you please.

Modern If you want to create a fun and modern space, you will want to think of clear, bold colors like cobalt blue or sunny yellow. You can keep your appliances in crisp white contrast and create a really lively, vibrant space. Or you may want to keep most or your kitchen monochromatic and simply create a colorful tile mural on your kitchen wall.

Warm If you love to have your friends over and whip up a hearty, homemade meal for them, then you will want to create a warm and inviting kitchen. Using earth tones with oranges and yellows gives this kitchen space a comfortable aesthetic.

Casual If your family tends to naturally gather in the kitchen, you may want to keep the space pretty casual. Green creates a calm feeling for your room, and you can easily pair it with blue and yellow to add a little interest to your design.

Classic Sometimes less is more. By creating a simple, white kitchen, you can easily keep your space spick and span. You can also change the look of this kitchen on a whim by simply adding new accessories to your countertops along with new dishtowels and potholders.

Chic If your family just consists of you and your mate, you might want to create a comfortable space with a touch of elegance much like you would find in a small, upscale restaurant. Warm wood tones and deep, saturated colors all create a beautiful backdrop for a candlelight meal.

As you look for ways to bring your design together with color there are some easy design tips that you can try.

Continuity Create a cohesive look in your kitchen by bringing in a color from a neighboring room in your home. For example, if you have a deep red accent color that you use in the dining room, you can incorporate it into your kitchen as an accent color.

Furnishings Your basic kitchen furnishings are your appliances, tile, countertops and wall color. So when you choose your color palette, make sure that all of these components work harmoniously together. You can tie all of your fixed pieces, like countertops and appliances, together with your floor and wall color.

Balance You can add a little pop to your room, but try not to overdo the accent color, so that your room has an inviting quality where you will be happy to prepare and enjoy good food.
