Good kitchen design rules often dictate that very dark colors, cold neutrals, and all other cold colors like blues, greens, purples, violets, and other colors in similar families do not promote hunger. Thus, they generally do not work as well in kitchens. That said, kitchen colors should ultimately follow personal tastes. Black is conventionally a poor kitchen color.
Warmer colors such as red are believed to stimulate the appetite and are an excellent option for kitchens. Red is incredibly versatile and there are multiple shades that would really pop in a kitchen, either on the cabinets or the walls. Most people start their days in their kitchens, and white can really energize a room. It feels fresh and clean, and an all-white kitchen will really wake you up the minute you step in it. You can also have more fun with your countertops and backsplash in an all-white kitchen and choose brighter colors or designs for those.
Just as clothing with horizontal stripes can make a person look wider, striped flooring that runs from side to side, rather than following the length of a room, will stretch the apparent floor space. These broad stripes were created by alternating light, and medium-tone laminate floor tiles. Achieve a similar effect by painting existing wooden or vinyl flooring or by covering the floor with a large striped rug.
Paint your walls white. If you really don not like white or it is not practical for your home, paint it a really light pastel colour instead. The lighter and brighter the room is, the more spacious and airy it will feel. Let in as much light as possible and natural lighting is always best. You can do this with windows, roof lights or with artificial lighting such as lamps, spotlights and daylight bulbs. If you have a small window and limited natural light, you can bounce the light around with mirrors, glass cabinet doors and glass framed pictures.
