Warm colors – if you decide to use warm colors in the kitchen, such as orange, yellow or even red, then you’ll be able to easily make them blend in with any type of décor, whether it’s modern, traditional or rustic. Make sure to balance the tones. If you use bright red on the walls, then the furniture should be neutral-colored. It’s important for the kitchen to have a stimulating design but don’t go overboard.
