1. Shades of Blue

The most popular, for so many valid reasons, is blue. Shades of blue in your kitchen not only look great (we love a good beach house theme), but they work wonders on your mood. Blue is an extremely soothing colour that has been proven to calm your mind, reduce anxiety and slow down your heart rate; you can take care of your health whilst enjoying the pleasant aesthetics of your kitchen! It is best to use no more than three different colours or shades of a colour, simply because it will become too much for the eye and end up having the opposite effect intended, leaving you feeling jangled and overwhelmed.

If all the blue is too much for you, balance it out with white and take inspiration from Greek-themed kitchens. Blue and white are equally effective for calming your mind and looks great.

2. White

You cannot go wrong with a white kitchen. If you are an individual who is easily jangled by mismatched colours, too much colour or don’t have the time (or energy) to spend hours hunting for the coffee mugs that perfectly compliment your beach-house themed kitchen, then white is for you! White is known for its crisp, fresh look and feeling of clarity. Ensure you add in a little colour, such as a vase or table runner, to prevent your kitchen from looking stark, but keep the overall kitchen crisp and white. Whilst the white will give you a feeling of clarity and calmness, it is important to note that dirty-white will do the opposite, so make sure you keep everything clean.

3. Yellow

Yellow is a personal favourite at Kitchen Depot. A colour known for its positivity and sense of happiness, paired with the clarity brought by white, is a ‘must’ for a calming colour schemed kitchen. Spending your evening cooking a delicious meal in a positive and welcoming room is bound to cute any bad day; soothe the soul by allowing yourself to get swept away in the warm glow that radiates off the walls and lifts your mood immediately.
