  • Choosing The Right Color For Your Kitchen

    "New Year, New Look," that is the motto this winter at Reilly Painting. If you're thinking about fixing up your kitchen, take a look at some of these color ideas courtesy of eHow:

    Warm Colors

    Red is a warm, almost hot color used only if there is a minimum of wall space. Too much red may cause feelings of anxiousness as the color in large doses tends to overstimulate the senses. Offset the red with a cool white or toasty brown to play against the heat of the red to create balance and provide excitement and comfort within the kitchen.

    Oranges and yellows are also considered warm colors, and are less intense than a pure red. Warm colors work well with traditional design and, in particular, country style or Tuscan style kitchens. For a more contemporary or modern design, use the brighter shades of the warm colors to match the sleek appeal of the kitchen design.

    Cool Colors

    The blues and greens found in nature bring a sense of relaxation to the kitchen space. These cool colors are refreshing to look at and work well in both traditional and modern design.

    Lighter shades of cooler colors in a kitchen offset darker woods and large appliances. Dark shades of blue and green, though, may need sharper contrast to prevent a sense of lethargy. Use splashes of red in accessories to offset darker greens, and use bright whites to play off darker shades of blue.
