Red Kitchens

Bold, daring and sure to have a dramatic impact, the color red can make an impression in a number of kitchen designs.

Red and white kitchen

You might think red is a color best reserved for fire engines or a bright lipstick choice, but as you consider kitchen remodeling ideas, options and solutions, keep in mind that there are some daring kitchen styles that include the hue throughout their design. With the right placement and thoughtful planning, red can add a bit of pizzazz to any kitchen.

While red is certainly not a color to use all over a kitchen, it can be used as a "spot treatment" throughout a design. For instance, a contemporary kitchen with white marble countertops, a slate gray backsplash and light wood floors would pair beautifully with glossy red metal or painted wood cabinets.

Small red accents, like a red teapot or red patterned fabric on pub-style chairs, could then be added to help incorporate the color. On the other hand, white kitchen cabinets with a beige or tan granite countertop would look stunning when pressed against a bright red painted wall.

Red kitchens can, of course, also come in small doses. Red backsplashes, lighting fixtures, dishes and curtains are all ideas for incorporating red into your overall kitchen design. Dish towels and other fabrics are also the perfect place to used red floral or plaid patterns, adding a touch of spice to your red kitchen design.
