What Your Kitchen Colors Say About You

Your home is a great platform to show off your unique personality and style. Even if you do not plan on doing much entertaining, your house is a reflection of you or your family as a whole. Nobody wants to live in a space that does not make them feel comforted—in their own way. You may prefer bright, white, clean lines, or you might have a taste for vintage decor with larger than life color. Your kitchen is a blank canvas that is just waiting for you to put your extraordinary ideas into the room.

If you have recently moved into a home that is not “you” when it comes to color schemes, you are probably craving a kitchen remodel to satisfy your decor desires. Just as with runway fashions, interior design trends are always changing, and you may decide that your old kitchen does not have the same catchy flare that it once had. Kitchen cabinets go from fab to drab with each passing decade. You may find that you need more storage solutions as your family expands, and that old color on the walls that once made you happy now gives you a headache.

Who are you? Tell the story of yourself and your family in your kitchen with a great design that makes you feel right at home—until it’s time for the next remodel, of course. Here is what your kitchen colors say about you.

Alluring Warm Tones

Have you heard that choosing a warm color palette will tighten your space, while brighter shades work to expand a room? While this can work in your favor with design, there is also something to be said about the personalities of those who choose orange, peach, yellow, red or other warm tones. These homeowners tend to be very warm and welcoming. They often love entertaining people in small, intimate gatherings. If you have chosen warm shades for your kitchen, you are probably hoping to host holiday dinners in your home and fun gatherings throughout the year. Warm colors help to make your home feel more inviting. Take comfort in the fact that your guests probably feel so welcome and right at home from the moment they walk into your kitchen space.

These exciting colors pair best with other hues that will cool them down, such as a soft neutral grey, and shades of blue or white. Consider these tones when you are picking your kitchen backsplash, custom kitchen cabinets or countertops.

Tranquil Cool Hues

Consider the spa for a moment—spas nearly always follow a cool color scheme that focuses on blues, greys, greens and lavenders. While your kitchen is the least spa-like room in your home as far as function is concerned, if you have gravitated towards these cool tones, you are probably a cool, calm and collected person yourself. Those who love to incorporate cool shades into their color schemes also tend to enjoy the outdoors and nature. Some are inspired by their surroundings, trees and water, when choosing their kitchen design. You may also consider yourself a bit of an introvert, and your home is an oasis in a busy world.

To insure that your space does not become too mellow, liven things up with a spot of warm here and there with your decor. For instance, yellow, red or white elements pair perfectly with cool paint shades and dark cabinets or countertops.

Rich Jewel Tones

Those who love jewel tones are truly unique, as you do not see this color scheme as often as the others—especially in the kitchen. Jewel tones are ruby, sapphire, amethyst, emerald and topaz. These are royal colors that really pop. It takes someone who has an eye for design to get them right. More than likely, you turn heads with both your fashion sense and home decorating style. You have a bright personality and love to be the life of the party. Speaking of parties, you look forward to hosting your own and showing off your fabulous jewel toned kitchen. The great thing about these colors and designs is that you can take an otherwise uninteresting space and make it marvelous by simply using your grand imagination.

Using neutrals with your decor will insure that your favorite colors do not become too overwhelming. For instance, the perfect place to show off your love for jewel tones in the kitchen is with a fabulous custom backsplash. Let it pop by going with greys or complimentary colors in the rest of the room.

Practical Neutrals

You can never go wrong with a great neutral kitchen—which you very well know. Greys, whites and other neutral tones are classic, timeless and will not be going out of style anytime soon. If you have gravitated towards these colors, you are probably a very organized, practical person yourself. You do not like the idea of having to repaint a few years down the road because you have outgrown a bold color. Do not worry though, these neutral tones do not mean you are a boring person. In fact, you probably love to entertain and show off your well-kept home.

Make things interesting by using different shades of your favorite neutrals, and choosing bright decor that gives your space cheer. Neutrals are great in that you can choose between so many different cabinets or countertops without having to worry about clashing with a color.
