Yes, we are boring: when we need to paint our house, we have to consider the light exposure of the room to choose the right tint. Why? Because if you have a kitchen of 5mq, where there isn’t even the space for the dishwater, painting it in ultramarine blue with a dark furniture, could give you a very excessive claustrophobic effect. So watch the light, following these little indications:
- Exposure of the kitchen from daylight (if it is exposed in the North, South, East or West);
- Grey areas caused by the furniture;
- The kitchen’s dimension
CWith these expedients and using the colours folder, you can proceed with the choice of your favourite colours for the kitchen.Are you ready? Let’s go!
Colour and Taste!
Massimo Caiazzo, Vice President for IACC International Association of Color Consultants, during the interview for Scavolini (and we know that they are very expert in kitchens), answered in this way to the question: “What is the best colour for kitchen’s walls?”
“Even if our senses are independent, they don’t act in a separate way from one another: we think about those situations where the contact or the presence of a smell or a taste evoke another sensorial reaction (the view of fruits that are felt also as taste). As Johannes Itten demonstrates in his experiments, the space colour can interfere with that of the food and consequently with its taste. For this reason it is better not to exceed with connoted colours as pink (sweet par excellence), acid green, range of violet (that evokes the flower’s perfume), but also the use of dark colours in tonal contrast, with similar saturation and brightness is not recommended, as green bottle and brown that evoke the sensation of bitter taste, not always suitable in kitchen”.
Practically: going from colours to taste is very easy. So, what colours are more suitable for our kitchen? Well, the evergreen pastels help us also this time, but for the kitchen, unlike the bedroom or the bathroom, for which cold colours are recommended, it is better to use warm tones: butter colour, cinnamon, beige, ivory… are the best tints that can be used in restricted spaces that need more light
