Color Characteristics

To successfully include the blue color in the interior of the kitchen you need to know its properties.

  • Impact on the mental and physical state: blue, like green, is a short-wave color, that is, our eyes rest on it. It also has a calming effect at the same time: it reduces appetite, reduces blood pressure, has a beneficial effect on mood and nervous system, and, at the same time, helps concentration of attention, develops creative thinking. From these properties it follows that the blue interior is especially suited to people watching for food, quick-tempered, impulsive and too emotional people, as well as hypertensives.
  • The blue interior is particularly recommended for: well-lit kitchens with windows facing south, as well as for decorating small and narrow kitchens.

  • Interaction with space: blue as opposed to blue does not "weight" objects and does not "eat up" space, but on the contrary - increases it and expands, so almost all variations of blue can be used in large masses, for example, in decorating walls, large furniture, for example, a headset and even a floor and a ceiling as shown On the photo below (leaf).

  • Interaction with other colors: blue shades occur in nature in a very large amount, because these are the colors of the sky and water, and therefore they are combined with almost all the colors of the rainbow, and especially: with neighbors in the spectrum - green and blue, with opposites - orange and yellow, and also with achromatic colors - white, gray and black.
  • Matching styles: the kitchen in blue colors can be made in any style, but the styles are especially organic: classic, provence, country, shibby chick, Mediterranean, Marine, Spanish, Scandinavian.

5 tips for coloring the kitchen

  1. In large masses, blue, especially gray and light blue, can be introduced into a melancholic, too relaxed state. To avoid this effect and to balance, for example, blue wallpaper on the walls, you need to complement the interior with invigorating colors: yellow, red, hot pink, orange.

  1. Главное правило применения голубого цвета в интерьере: так как этот цвет является холодным, то его нужно уравновешивать включением «тёплых» красок: бежевых, кремовых, коричневых, желтых и других тонов. На фото ниже прекрасный пример бежево-голубой кухни в интерьере в стиле provence.

Also try to apply more matte, rather than glossy textures in the finish and furniture. Another sure way to add warmth and coziness is to use a lot of warm natural materials, that is, table textiles, carpets and curtains made of natural fabrics, wooden furniture.

  1. Depending on the saturation and brightness, the blue color in the interior can play the role of a background, the role of a complement to the main color and accent:
  • if small kitchen, then light blue or light gray-blue - the best paint for walls or wallpaper, as they visually increase the space and do not "extinguish" natural light. In addition, with such a quiet background, you can often experiment and modify the design of the kitchen, replacing only the decor, textiles and some pieces of furniture;

  • if окна вашей кухни выходят на север, запад или восток, то голубой цвет в интерьере лучше использовать только в качестве акцента, например, в декоре, посуде, в отделке фартука, в кухонном текстиле, а вот полностью голубые шторы и обои сделают кухню неуютной;

  • if вы хотите использовать ярко-голубой, лазурный, бирюзовый цвет в сочетании с другими яркими цветами, то уравновесить яркие краски сможет большая доля белого цвета и большое количество натуральных материалов.
  1. Самые гармоничные цвета-компаньоны - это, как уже было отмечено, оттенки: зеленого, blue, оранжевого, желтого, а также белого, серого и черного.

Combination with white

The white and blue interior will never go out of fashion and will be appropriate in any style, because the union of these flowers is as harmonious as the sky with clouds or sea water with foam.

Below are examples of white and blue cuisine.

Combination with beige

No less successful combination of blue with all shades of beige. This is another combination of colors, borrowed by designers from nature itself - azure sea with sandy beaches and sky with wheat fields.

  • Tip: Although the warm beige and cold blue are mutually complementary, they both have a calming effect, more relevant in the bedroom. However, in the kitchen it is worth adding a few impulsive, invigorating colors. Look closely at these beige-blue interiors in the photo below - bouquets of bright pink flowers appeared on the tables not by chance, but were specially selected by professional designers.

Combination with green

Blue and green are close neighbors in the spectrum, so they perfectly harmonize with each other. Since in nature this union of flowers is most often represented by plants (such as cornflowers and bells in the grass, hyacinths with their tender stems, seaweed in seawater, tree crowns against the background of the same sky), then natural blue vegetation shades .

Combination with blue

Голубой цвет получается из blue, которого разбавили белой краской. В соседстве с голубым синий становится мягче, создается игра цветов, а эффект свежести и прохлады усиливается, поэтому лучше избегать такого сочетания в дизайне «северной» кухни.

Combination with yellow

Считается, что желтый это цвет противоположный синему и голубому, а значит дополнительный и особенно к нему подходящий. На самом деле противоположность голубого цвета – это оранжевый колер, но желтый сочетается с голубым не хуже него. Бодрость и теплота желтого с лихвой компенсирует холодность и уравновешенность нашего героя, поэтому эта пара уместна на любой кухне – хоть северной, хоть южной, но if вы хотите смоделировать спокойную атмосферу кухни, то желтый используйте в приглушенных, бледных, нежных тонах, либо в малом количестве.

Combination with pink

Розовый цвет в паре с голубым может создавать различное настроение в зависимости от оттенка. Если использовать ярко-розовые краски, то дизайн кухни станет более динамичным и эмоциональным, if применить нежно-розовый оттенок, то сдержанным и слишком спокойным. Поэтому вы можете использовать такие комбинации: ярко-розовый + нежно-голубой, нежно-розовый + бирюзовый, нежно-розовый + нежно-голубой + желтый или оранжевый (бодрящие цвета), ярко-голубой + ярко-розовый + бежевый (уравновешивающий цвет) и т.д.
