Top colors to avoid for kitchens

Designing a kitchen can be a tricky thing as you want functionality and design and style. This is where many people go wrong as they are never able to figure out what to put together and choosing designs and colors that makes their kitchens look cluttered, messy and disorganized.


Lighting and basics:

Don’t skimp on spending when it comes to lighting; buy a long lasting system from a good company. Kitchens should be well lit during all parts of the day. When designing your kitchen, always consider how the lighting systems will show on you choices in interior décor and wall paint colors, also check to see how each of the colors will look during different times of the day with and without the lights. Don’t over look any of the basics, always make sure that there is plenty of space for the appliances that you will be installing, use a color palette to pick out the right colors and try to understand how the color wheel and schemes work before choosing a shade.

Follow the 60-30-10 rule:

The color principle is 60-30-10 can help you to divide the use of various colors so that you can get a color scheme that is aesthetically pleasing. Pick the color of your choice and divide in into 60% for the dominant color, 30% of the secondary color and 10% for the accents colors.


Neutral does not always mean beige:

Beige is a neutral color but other shades of your favorite colors can also be used in the neutral tone. This is because the term neutral refers to a balance between cool and warm tones and the actual shade of the color can vary.


Overloading the color palette:

A mixture of different colors can be beautiful if it is done in the right way, but adding too many colors or the wrong shades can be disastrous. Stick to a particular color scheme which could either be complementary or monochromatic, then apply the 60-30-10 color principle to manage the mixing of different colors.


Color or patterns trends:

Adding trending patterns or colors can give your kitchen a fresh look, but make sure that you stick with a timeless design, this is  because the trends in wall accessories and colors can be switched or become dated, this same principle also applied to the color and furnishings.
