Creating the Right Mood for Your Kitchen

Creating the Right Mood for Your Kitchen

The kitchen is one of the busiest rooms of your home. It is often the first room you visit upon waking and one of the last you see before going to sleep. It’s important to have a kitchen that puts you in the right mood.


This is one of the most important ways to inspire a certain mood in a room. It also shows your personality. Color affects us depending on age, background, climate and even gender. Shades and tones should be chosen with the wanted mood in mind.

For kitchens, shades of yellow are recommended because the color encourages increased metabolism. It creates energy and simply makes the room look lighter. The color red will stimulate appetite, so if you eat in your kitchen this may be an option too.

Color can also play a role in furniture and cabinets. It can make a room look bigger or smaller than it really is. Consult magazines, paint chips, experts and other professionals to find the right color for your kitchen.


The right type of lighting also plays a large role in setting your kitchen’s mood. Dimmers are a great way to control the amount of lighting to whatever you wish at any time. They give you control over the brightness of your kitchen.

Look for energy-saving lights that create a soft, warm light. Halogen lighting can seem harsh in a kitchen, although often used in apartments. Lights that give off an orange or amber color are considered warm light.

It is best to have a variety of lighting as it will affect color. If you have the same type of lighting throughout your kitchen, you and your guest may find it hard to focus on each other.

There are three types of lighting to address. One is feature lighting, another is ambient (which is mood lighting) and the third is working or task lighting. This can all be achieved by clever use of spotlights, strips, lamps and down/up lighters to create your personalized kitchen.


Cabinet color contributes to the mood and creates a distinct kitchen space. Since countertops and backsplashes are rather permanent, try to pick a cabinet color to compliment or accent these features. Some colors that tend to go well as kitchen cabinets are various shades of caramel, green, blue and yellow, as well as white and black. Wood and wood stains are also popular choices.

What do you do if you have great cabinets but want to change a style or color? A simple solution is to reface your cabinets. A company like Kitchen Solvers is set up for times like this. With refacing, you can change colors, finishes, hardware and even locations of your kitchen cabinets. You can create cabinets to add to the mood of your kitchen without the trouble of putting in a brand new set.

If you don’t know what paints, finishes, glazes or glosses to use, ask a professional, who has the answers and experience to make your kitchen become the room it was meant to be.
