The Sheer Brilliance of Red Cookware

Decorating With the Color Red and Stainless Steel to Compliment Your Red Cookware and Red Pot Rack

When it comes to decorating, many today prefer vibrant colors. If you have decided to decorate your kitchen, and welcome some assistance, maybe you will love the few suggestions I would like to offer.

These suggestions will work with any color seam, but, let's say you have chosen one that is red, white and black. A red kitchen is HOT, and easy to accessorize. Red cookware along with a red pot rack would be perfect accessories to start with, but before talking accessories, let's first plan the basics well.

You may choose to paint your entire kitchen a shade of red, or simply a main wall, but remember, if your current dwelling is not a permanent one, or you may be thinking of selling your home soon; it would be good to simply paint your walls white. Before you do any painting, why not consider a glass tile backslash that has varying shades of red. To get some ideas on decorating with glass in your kitchen visit: thinkglass.com.

Get paint samples to help you decide, which shades of red (found in the glass tile), you would prefer having as a wall color. Your accessories can duplicate the other shades of red that are found in your backsplash. In addition, a backsplash of glass mosaics tile with a shade of rich red included with multiple colors might be another option. Some paint samples are a nice size, allowing you to tape then to your wall(s). Let it stay taped to your wall(s) for a day or two. This way you can get a good feel, for whether or not you would want your wall(s) to be that color.

For window treatments, try repeating the shade of red in your red accessories (cookware and/or pot rack), in a valence. If you prefer a well lit kitchen, it may be good to use white paneled curtains. In addition how about doing a white marble tile floor with matching granite counter tops, and black appliances. With a black and white layout your red accessories would certainly POP. You may find the perfect flooring at daltileproducts.com. For countertops visit: asgranite.com, or silestoneusa.com. Remember to eliminate any clutter on your countertops, which would detract from the overall appearance of your kitchen. Should your kitchen cabinets need a face-left visit signaturecustomwoodworking.com.

With the basics established, try playing around with additional touches to see how they would provide the perfect look you want to achieve. For example, black wrought iron would make a good appearance, and so would stainless steel. Stainless steel is a popular choice that is more contemporary, and has a clean look. Black wrought iron is popular as well, however, not contemporary.

Do not forget to use plants, which will add a warm touch to any d├ęcor. If you do not have a bulkhead over your kitchen cabinets, a plant, or two, or three (depending on the space), will do well. Some would prefer artificial plants, in out-of-the-way areas, to eliminate the care that live plants would require.
