Small Kitchen, Red Cabinets, Green Stone Back Splash
Did you know that red and green are opposite each other on the color wheel? I’ve known this since I was a kid when our step father (who is an optometrist) left some color blind testing sheets lying around and through that we learned that my brother experiences red/green color blindness.
As a result of learning this, I learned how the idea of what we call complementary colors is not arbitrary (maybe some of it is) but is rooted in biology to some extent.
Red and green being “opposite” colors causes us to perceive them to go together well.
This featured kitchen takes advantage of this very well. The distinguishing characteristic of this kitchen is the contrast between the red of the cabinets and the green of the natural stone tiles used to create the back splash that encircles the entire room.
The rest of the kitchen creates background colors to the dominate colors of red and green.
The flooring is a light colored wood.
The countertops are a black granite speckled in white. The appliances are stainless steel, as is the double sink. The faucet is brushed nickel. The outlet and switch covers are white. However what stands out the most is the green stone colors of the back splash wall contrasted against the red cabinets.
As this kitchen is small it needs ample light, which it has. The ambient light is provided by can lights in the ceiling (not visible) and the task lighting is provided by under cabinet lights shining onto the counter tops as well as the lights in the range hood.
The designer and contractor did an excellent job of creating this kitchen in the narrow space.
Does this featured kitchen give you ideas for your upcoming kitchen remodel?
