Color plays a major role in your kitchen design. Every aspect of your kitchen involves making a color choice – cabinets, counter top, backsplash, lighting fixtures, hardware, flooring, walls — and the list goes on. It is part of the process: color selections need to be made when you are designing a kitchen. Here’s your chance to choose the deep rich hues of cherry wood or the cool sophistication of natural maple, the cool grays and whites of a marble counter top or the endless colors of granite. Every choice enables you to add the stamp of your personality to the room. Think about what you like. When you are shopping for clothing do you gravitate toward neutrals or are you more apt to pick a colorful pattern?
There are pros and cons to each style when remodeling: Subtle choices are safe and flexible, but may lack overall pop and bore an extrovert. Bold choices are dramatic and fun, but can be risky and become dated in a short amount of time and may scare an introvert. Ask yourself: Am I remodeling for a potential resale or to please myself?
Nervous? Don’t worry. The designers at Morris Black have created bold vibrant kitchens and subtle soothing kitchens – we can guide you through the color choices. We can make suggestions, or let you decide – we’re here to help! We also have tools that can help you visualize what the colors will look like in a room design.
