SPACE AND MOOD: WHAT EFFECT DOES THE COLOR BLUE HAVE IN THE KITCHEN?
Blue is a reserved, light, airy color with a cold radiance. The cool color fades optically into the background and makes small rooms appear larger. In particular, light shades of blue such as pastel blue or baby blue have an enlarging and opening effect. The color of the water and sky is refreshing, calming, and relaxing. Blue is said to increase creativity and curb appetite. Mixed with red, shades of blue appear much warmer and more stimulating, so blue is also becoming increasingly popular in the kitchen.
Blue can be combined in so many different ways in the kitchen: tone-on-tone, toned down with other warmer colors, or with white for an airy, light atmosphere.

WHICH SHADE OF BLUE GOES WITH WHICH STYLE OF KITCHEN
Blue is a very multifaceted kitchen color. The color is sometimes modern, fresh and cool, and occasionally romantic. With its many shades of color, blue does not rule out any style in the kitchen design.
Fresh, maritime shades of blue for the country house style: Country house kitchens like to shine in white and fresh shades of blue from soft to dark. Atlantic blue, sea blue, or ice blue suggest that blue goes particularly well with the maritime style of Scandinavian country kitchens. Blue kitchen fronts are often combined with white and gray floorboards.
Delicate, greyish blue for the vintage, shabby chic, and retro style: Dreamy pastel blue or delicate dusty blue is also often found in nostalgic kitchens. In combination with, for example, patterned vintage kitchen floors, an authentic retro style is created.
Strong or cool blue for modern kitchens: Strong teal or elegant, dark blue, almost purple tones ensure elegance and are suitable for modern kitchens and puristic design kitchens.
COLORS AND MATERIALS: WHAT GOES WELL WITH BLUE KITCHEN FRONTS?
Blue is easy to combine; it is not unreasonable that blue is so popular in the fashion world. In terms of color, white goes exceptionally well. Warm shades of white, beige, gray, or sand can be combined so that the kitchen does not appear too cool and the maritime ambiance is still preserved. Natural materials such as wood provide more comfort and warmth. Other materials that coordinate well with blue kitchen fronts include stone, ceramics, granite, and concrete, creating a “cool” atmosphere. A blue kitchen looks particularly elegant, especially in dark blue tones combined with white marble.
Blue goes well with wood. It doesn’t matter whether it’s walnut or other types of wood, as is the case with this kitchen unit. In combination with wood, all cool shades of blue appear warmer and cozier.
