Colors and NYC Kitchen Remodeling

Posted on January 9, 2019

Introducing new colors is a great way to reinvigorate any kitchen. Changing the colors can have very drastic results. A bland kitchen can look unrecognizable if colored well enough and it may even serve to make it look more modern and contemporary without even having to change much else within the kitchen.

You can achieve all sorts of themes by changing the color such as traditional, Mediterranean, Spanish, and Victorian just to name a few. Be sure to decorate the kitchen with accents which complement the color scheme of the kitchen to further enhance the atmosphere.

Obviously though, you can’t just pick any color and be done with it. You have to give it a lot of thought otherwise you may be spending money to make your kitchen look tacky or even horrendous. There are several matching themes and proven combinations for almost any kind of kitchen. The color style of a kitchen can make it seem larger or highlight certain areas making them a focal point in the kitchen.

If you are feeling particularly creative and want to choose your own colors, be sure follow the 60-30-10 rule in order to keep things looking neat and orderly. The rule states that you choose a primary color which will dominate 60% of your kitchen; a secondary color that will take up 30% of your kitchen; and one last color taking up the remaining 10% to serve as accent coloring to be scattered around the kitchen.

Whenever possible, try to see firsthand what your changes will look like before applying them. There are lots of ways to do this but a simple way of going about this would be to tidy up your kitchen, taking a photo of it and then adjusting the colors on photoshop.
