Red is the new white in kitchen design. Why add just a splash of color when you can go bold with an all over bright color. When working with a small kitchen space, a bright classic color, like red, can really rev up the space. Adding darker countertops to the design creates a beautiful contrast between the cabinets and counters. When bright colors are used in a design idea; it can change the whole atmosphere of the space and goes far in changing the perceived size of the kitchen. If you have trouble waking up in the morning and find you are addicted to the sudden jolt from your morning cup, or cups, of coffee, add a bold color to your kitchen to help get your motor started, naturally.
