If you don’t consider yourself to be an especially visual person, you might not have given much thought to the colors of paint you use in your home decor. But according to experts, color psychology probably has a bigger impact than you realize. And even if you don’t believe you care that much about aesthetics, your brain might.
In short, the colors you use to decorate can have major effects on the way you feel. Different hues can make us feel depressed, joyful, energized, or even hungry. You’ll want to define the purpose of the room you’ll be painting in order to zero in on the best colors for what you’re trying to achieve. If you want to stimulate socialization, a warm and earthy paint color will work best. If you’re aiming to promote relaxation and tranquility, a cooler paint color can create a sense of calm.
So what does color psychology tell us about picking paint colors in the kitchen? It may depend on some specific factors. Some homeowners might choose to incorporate the color scheme from the kitchens they recall from their childhoods, as these positive memories can associate a sense of comfort, familiarity, and happiness with this new space. Others might choose to use red hues in their kitchen and dining areas, as this can stimulate the appetite. However, keep in mind that using red can actually cause you to eat more — so if you intend to stick to a strict diet, you might want to think twice before you start painting.
Of course, nothing says you need to stick to warm tones in the kitchen. A lot of homeowners want to focus on cleanliness and brightness, as this can make them feel refreshed when they walk into the kitchen. In that case, sticking to white-adjacent neutrals with a pop or two of color may be ideal. Since blues, greens, and turquoises can make us feel bright, fresh, and calm, it might make sense to use those in your kitchen.
