Color

The colors you use in the space can have a profound effect on the ambience you create throughout the room. While different people will have different reactions to colors, there are some common reactions that are shared by most members of our society. It is important to balance this knowledge, with your own tastes and reflections, in order to create the perfect harmony.

Dark colors will tend to feel warmer, and will radiate heat, so many people will stay away from them in the kitchen. Black is especially difficult as it can make a room feel smaller and closed in. However using dark colors as accents with the main theme of the room being light or pastel, can make the space more interesting, and even warm up a sterile locale.

Red and orange colors will speed up the metabolism of people in their vicinity. This makes them hungry, and also makes them burn calories faster. Used strategically this can be a powerful tool in the kitchen.

Personalize your space with decorative and functional trivets and drink coasters, which are available in a wide variety of sizes and colors

However you should be careful of these colors as their overuse can lead to over snacking and over tasting while c ooking. They also tend to make people more aggressive, so using them sparingly is a good idea.
