Happiness is a Warm Kitchen
Color is Back in Your Kitchen!
The role and functional needs of the home have been transformed during the last three years. Homeowners in Scottsdale and the Phoenix area learned to use their homes as offices, conference rooms, classrooms, cafes, libraries, and a host of other functions. Now that they have gotten used to home offices, they continue to spend more time in their homes. The demands on the home are not expected to wane among homeowners soon. That’s why we have seen increased demand and desire for dream kitchens and homes with warmer and softer color pallets that provide a sense of calm and serve as a place where family members can rest, relax and decompress.
Warm colors that are finding their way into Scottsdale kitchens include yellows, reds, and oranges. Yes! Some may think of them as very bold colors. It's okay to have your kitchen make a statement! These warm colors are believed to increase body temperature and blood pressure which makes the body feel warmer, thus the term “warm colors.” Warm colors also can make kitchens and other rooms in your home feel brighter, cozier, and more inviting.
Red paint, backsplashes, or accents serve to stimulate the appetite and can provide a bold and dramatic statement-making vibe to a new kitchen. Red is often paired with contemporary motifs. Homeowners that prefer a more traditional design can achieve the same goals by using lighter shades of red that contrast perfectly with white cabinets.
Yellow tones in your new dream kitchen speak of sunlight and cheer. A perfect match for yellow is the cherry. Another popular use of yellow in kitchens is to pair gold tones with chocolate and light tan.
Warm colors are welcomed by homeowners because they can temper the coldness of white cabinetry.
There are limitless options for using warmer tones. They do not have to be focused on cabinetry. Instead, homeowners can bring warmth and coziness to their new kitchens with accent colors, bar stools, wall coverings, countertops, door frames, crown molding, fabrics, baskets, vases, and other components. A key is to achieve the appropriate contrast and balance within the color pallet.
