room and make people feel warmer…..

The role and functional needs of the home have been transformed during the last three years.  Homeowners in the Dayton, OH area have used their homes as offices, conference rooms, classrooms, cafes, libraries, and a host of other functions because many have and will continue to spend more time in their homes.  The demands on the home are not expected to wane among homeowners in the Miami Valley anytime soon.  That’s why we have seen increased demand and desire for dream kitchens and homes with warmer and softer color pallets that provide a sense of calm and serve as a place where family members can rest, relax and decompress.

Warm colors that are finding their way into kitchens for homeowners in Kettering, Oakwood, Centerville and beyond include yellows, reds, and oranges.  These warm colors are believed to increase body temperature and blood pressure that make the body feel warmer thus the term “warm colors.”  Warm colors also can make kitchens and other rooms in your home feel brighter, cozier, and more inviting.

Red paint, backsplashes, or accents serve to stimulate the appetite and can provide a bold and dramatic statement-making vibe to a new kitchen.  Red is often paired with contemporary motifs.  Homeowners that prefer a more traditional design can achieve the same goals by using lighter shades of red that contrast perfectly with white cabinets.

Yellow tones in your new dream kitchen speak of sunlight and cheer. A perfect match for yellow is cherry. Another popular use of yellow in kitchens is to pair gold tones with chocolate and light tan.

Warm colors are welcomed by homeowners in Dayton, OH area because they can temper the coldness of white cabinetry.

There are limitless options for homeowners to use warmer tones.  They do not have to be focused on cabinetry.  Instead, one can bring warmth and coziness to their new kitchens with accent colors, bar stools and chairs, wall coverings, countertops, door frames, crown molding, fabrics, hardware and fixtures, baskets, vases, and other components.  A key is to achieve the appropriate contrast and balance within the color pallet.
