Kitchen colors are simply colors that look best in a kitchen and which will also wear well with time and much use. They can be anything really and basically the whole color world is your oyster, but different people have different ideas on what are suitable colors for a kitchen.
Some people I know would swear by having cream and beige tones in their kitchen. Others would prefer the earthier colors like browns and light beiges. Yet others would prefer to have their kitchens a spotless and pristine white with maybe black or chrome highlights. And others still would like to have bright vivid colors gracing their kitchens.
As you can see the kitchen colors of various people will differ wildly given the person, the circumstances and the times that you live in. For instance would you even think about having sixties wallpaper in your kitchen nowadays?
I know that the fun part for me in redoing my own kitchen wasn't choosing the brand new accessories I would need, but choosing the suitable kitchen colors that would lend it the much needed elegance it lacked at that moment.
I have to say that I had fun in imagining my kitchen clothed in a range of colors from bright white to vivid red to ocean blue. Needless to say, none of the more radical ideas took up more than a minute or two of my time as what I wanted was somewhere I could work in relative peace and enjoyment.
And that's really what choosing your kitchen colors and kitchen cupboards comes down to. It should be something you like, but it should also be something you're willing to live with for the next one or two years, unless of course you're prepared to choose some new kitchen colors and repaint your kitchen.
