Trends in kitchen cabinetry change frequently. There are times when warm colors are all the rage, such as reds, yellows, and oranges. Other times white and other neutral colors are more in demand. Currently one of the most popular color trends in kitchen cabinetry belongs to the cool colors.
Turquoise is one of the favorites in the cool color category. Turquoise offers various hues and shades that combine both blues and greens to create the perfect shade for a cool, calming, and relaxing kitchen atmosphere. The various shades available help to create dark, sophisticated looks or bright and cheery kitchens.
When using turquoise in a kitchen the first step is selecting the ideal color to fit your design needs. If your home has an open floor plan, which exposes the kitchen to other rooms of the home, select colors that complement one either. Doing this helps tie the different rooms together. When looking at a color wheel, colors such as cream, yellow, brown, fuchsia, cherry-red, and dark-violet combine well with turquoise.
