Choosing a Kitchen Color Scheme

Kitchen design options can sometimes feel endless. What cabinet finish would you like? Which flooring sample would be best? Should you choose granite countertops or tile countertops? And what about that backsplash? Here at the Poulin Design Center in Albuquerque, we can walk you through the decision-making process. Read on for some tips to consider when it comes to color in your kitchen design.

Finding Balance

Sometimes a homeowner will be looking to create a kitchen in all one color.  For example, a totally white kitchen is an option that looks incredibly sleek, modern, and clean.  However, more often than not homeowners are looking for some degree of contrast. This means that you may choose bright, white cabinets, but then choose a darker backsplash or flooring option.  This helps to create a balance between light and dark in the kitchen design.

Bright Pops of Color

The kitchen is the perfect place to show some personality with your design.  Painting a wall a bold color like red, yellow, or even green can help to add in a pop of color.  If you have any glass cabinets or open cabinets you can paint the back wall of the cabinet to add in an accent color there as well. Another place to add in color is with the backsplash.  You can add in colorful ceramic tile, natural stone, or even glass.

Decide on a Palette

Figure out which colors are most important to you and build your palette around those colors.  For example, if you wanted light blue wall paint, you might want to also consider adding in greys, whites, and perhaps a darker color as well in the flooring.  This will help your kitchen design come together and be a cohesive design you are proud of.
