When you’re planning a kitchen remodeling project, chances are you’ll also want to update your kitchen’s aesthetic appeal. One way you can do this is by choosing new colors for the room. However, while it may seem like a simple task, home builders say there are actually a few do’s and don’ts that you’ll need to keep in mind when picking a color scheme for your kitchen.
Do: Check Your Lighting
When you have plans of choosing bright or light color schemes for your kitchen, experts strongly recommend that you check your kitchen’s lighting first. This is because low-light can easily change the look of certain colors, and you might have to consider adding extra lighting to achieve the kitchen colors you want to see.
Don’t: Choose What’s Popular Just Because They’re Popular
It can be tempting to pick what’s popular because everyone is doing it. However, remodelers actually do not recommend that you go this route as it’s possible that you may get tired of it after a few years. Instead, when picking a kitchen color scheme, consider its longevity, and see whether or not they really are the colors for you.
Do: Go With Your Gut
If your gut tells you to go with certain color schemes for your kitchen, don’t hesitate to follow it as chances are it may be right. After all, you’ll be the one cooking or working in the kitchen anyway so it’s your call in the end.
Don’t: Forget to Ask for Samples
When trying to pick a kitchen color scheme, kitchen and bathroom remodeling pros say you should never forget to ask for samples of various colors. By doing so, you can match colors and design of your kitchen color scheme.
Do: Consider All White
On the other hand, another thing you should consider for your kitchen is an all-white color scheme. That way, you can have a perfect blank canvas that offers a timeless look for your kitchen. With an all-white kitchen, you can also add colorful accessories to your kitchen that you can seasonally change.
