Choosing a bold color in any room is always a bit scary, but it can also really add splash and character to a house. Some rooms work better for bold, bright colors and some are better with the soothing, softer colors. A kitchen is one of those rooms that can handle the bright colors, even red, whether it is the walls painted in red, or a combination or fed accessories, or a combination of both.
Sure, it can be tacky if the color is overdone or too bright or even on too much space. But it can also be very tastefully done and add a charm that makes the kitchen a star. A few different reds work well in kitchens, depending on the decor and the feel that the homeowner wants.
Cherry red makes for a great red kitchen. Whether it is on the walls or maybe even the cabinets with a bright white accent, it will brighten the room and lend a cheery feel. Lots of kitchen accessories are now available in red to play on the color, and with cherry, the accessories will match nicely.
Another nice color is a darker red, like a garnet or wine color. This makes for a more sophisticated look and also works great as an accent paint color, perhaps under a chair rail or just on one wall, paired with a more neutral beige color. The deep red goes well with sleek appliances and decor.
