How Colors Can Have an Impact in the Kitchen

by Guest on Feb 13, 2013

If you have ever walked into your kitchen and your thoughts have turned to how hungrier you are than you first thought, it could have something to do with your choice of colors that you have chosen for your walls influencing your mood and feelings.

In much the same way as a supermarket tries to tap into our subliminal senses by introducing the smell of recently baked bread and freshly ground coffee to improve our mood as we enter the shop, your choice of a color scheme in the kitchen can also affect your eating habits and general mood.

Kitchen

Choose your colors carefully

There are several key characteristics associated with certain colors and using them in your kitchen most certainly can influence your subconscious thoughts. Red is a vibrant color and a bold design statement but have you ever wondered why a lot of restaurants have red walls? Although we also associate the color red with romance and passion, it has also been shown that being exposed to the color red will increase your appetite and promote hunger, which if you are cynical, is the reason why restaurants choose the color so often. There have also been some studies that suggest that a red color scheme can influence the causes of higher blood pressure.

Calming influence

If you are looking for a more calming color that can change your mood to slow down your eating speed and prevent you from overindulging in the kitchen then the color blue is probably a good choice. Painting your walls blue and even using blue colored accessories such as placemats and pictures can all help to ensure that you eat more slowly and take on a much more relaxed persona in the dining area as you take more time and subsequently reduce your appetite, which is probably why there are not many restaurants with a blue decor that spring to mind.

Stimulating colors

Orange is certainly a stimulating color and its effect is known to increase oxygen supply to the brain which in turn gives you a positive mental boost rather like an energy drink could boost your energy levels. The problem with orange themed kitchen design is that it may have the effect of stimulating your appetite which is probably going to make the possibility of over-eating more likely.

Safe choice

The kitchen design expert has noticed regular interest in getting the color scheme right, not just for our visionary senses but on our subconscious as well. In this respect, the color grey is actually a pretty safe choice and even though some may consider it a slightly bland choice, it can work very well if incorporated into the overall design of the kitchen color scheme and it also has a positive effect on your psychological senses. Grey is an ideal appetite suppressing color to use in the kitchen as it is calming and relaxing whilst also neutralizing feelings of anxiety, meaning you are less likely to snack or even binge eat if you have a kitchen with grey walls, food for thought!
