Hot Pink in the Kitchen

Choosing Hot Pink for Kitchen Decor

When it comes to choosing a color for painting or decorating a kitchen, why not consider hot pink in the kitchen? This bright and colorful shade of pink can really brighten up a space, adding color and style to a kitchen in a home, apartment, office, or college dorm. This lively berry tone can be used strictly for creating a fun and eclectic look, for example, for female roommates in a college dorm. Or, it can be used to create a sophisticated, warm and inviting space in an area where families love to gather. The way you choose to decorate the hot pink kitchen and the accessories chosen can make all the difference in the appearance of the finished room.

To achieve a fun, youthful feel, choose really bold shades of pink. For a less bold look, while still using the same basic hot pink color, choose shades of fuchsia or berry. Some great ideas include painting an accent wall in pink while leaving cabinets and the other walls white or off-white. Or, you might choose to paint all of the cabinet door fronts the fuchsia shade, leaving the walls white or off-white. For another creative painting idea, consider painting the ceiling of the kitchen pink. Just remember to keep some white or off-white showing as opposed to having everything pink. A large, bold pink area rug, or a few smaller pink rugs could be used on the kitchen floor to add color and keep with the theme of the kitchen.

How Pink to Go?

When it comes to adding hot pink to your kitchen you need to decide how far you want to take it. Do you want it to predominate or to provide surprising pops of color? Both work surprisingly well in a kitchen though I'm not sure my husband completely agrees. That said, hot pink is a real funky color that pleases more people than its paler more feminine pastel pinks.

Personally I like to use appliances and accents to surprise people. Here I've searched out suitable appliances that are functional and also attractive to look at. I've picked out well known brands that get good reviews. You can check those out by clicking on the links.

Add to that some nice table linens, towels and accessories and you have a completely new look in your kitchen.

Raspberry Ice is Another Name for Hot Pink

After decisions have been made regarding where to use the pink color on walls, cabinetry, and floors, it is time to focus on bringing the hot pink color into other areas of the kitchen. Some fun ideas might include hanging some framed wall art in shades of pink, as well as incorporating some small appliances in the pink shade to add a dramatic splash of color to your countertops. The popular brand Kitchen Aid offers a bright Raspberry Ice colored standing mixer that fits the bill perfectly.

Adding Hot Pink Accents

Other cute but functional items that can be displayed in the kitchen include fuchsia colored oven mitts, that can be hung from a knob on a cabinet door to add color and for easy access when needed. Consider hanging a bold, berry colored utensil rack on one of the white walls to display your cooking tools and make them easy to find at the same time. A cute apron with a darker pink or with hot pink accents would look great hanging from a hook in the kitchen.

For fun accents, try some fuchsia place mats. If none are readily available, cut your own from a roll of foam shelf liner in the proper color. Adding some dish towels here and there also give the kitchen a welcoming feeling. Place a bright pink dishtowel through the handle of the refrigerator, and wherever else one might add a little dash of color. For kitchens that have windows or a door with a window, consider hanging a light, airy curtain in a matching shade of pink. White stripes or white polka dots in the pattern create a fun look. If dining table chairs lack chair pads, this is another area in which you might use the pink color. If you cannot find pink chair pads to fit, consider buying ready made ones to fit your chairs and covering them yourself with an inexpensive fabric in your chosen color.

Pink candles and candle holders may be used to decorate a kitchen table. A sturdy vase with pink flowers also makes a nice, decorative accent. If you have any other furniture pieces in the kitchen, especially ones that stand along a white wall, you could possibly paint them a berry color to coordinate along with the rest of your kitchen.

Don't Forget the Backsplash!

Hot Pink BacksplashAnother location within the kitchen that may go unnoticed when considering painting is the backsplash area underneath the cabinets and above the sink. This is a perfect accent area to apply color to, by either painting or applying ceramic tiles which are perfect for an area that gets splashed with water daily.

Using a bold pink color in a kitchen can really make a statement. When used properly, this color can bring warmth and whimsy to tiny college dorm kitchens, friendliness to a shared office kitchen, and can provide a colorful place to gather, eat, and socialize in the smallest of apartments or the grandest house on the block. Consider using hot pink in your next kitchen decorating project.

Hot Pink as an Accent or Main Color in Your Bedroom

When it comes to bedroom decor, hot pink is no longer just for little girls. Mind you, pink bedrooms will never go out of fashion for girls of any age but I wanted to show you how you can add a pop of color that can completely change the look of a bedroom without being over the top. Using hot pink in the bedroom will make a plain room into a cheerful place to rest.

For easy ways to update and refresh a room the two areas to think about changing first are the bedding and the window drapes. You can create a whole new look without the expense of completely refurnishing. Here are some choices in bedroom decor that you can explore.

Adding hot pink to your bedroom

If you are anything like me, you will like making changes in the home. I like to be able to make a room look completely different with a few additions and changes. So I usually make sure I start off with a base of a color scheme in painting and decorating that is amenable to lots of different accents. For example, I like to have a plain color on the walls, something pale or pastel that can be used as a base to support more vibrant colors elsewhere in the room. The same with flooring. I do prefer floorboards and tiles but in the bedroom a plain colored carpet is just as nice. When you think about it, the floor and the walls are your two major areas of color - so think about those carefully in the very first instance. They you can swap and change as you like without having to start from scratch.

So what are the main color blocks in your bedroom (apart from the walls and floor?) They are the bed and the windows. Simply by changing bedding and curtains or other window dressing, maybe adding a pop of color in an accent - hey presto - you have a new room!

It's always nice to get one-stop shopping options when it comes to redecorating your bedroom. Many companies are happy to provide matching bedding and curtains. These are the two big color areas in your bedroom.

Add hot pink animal prints for effect

As I said before, bedding and curtains are two of the major color scheme areas to consider when it comes to decorating and the joy of them is they can be changed easily and will have a huge impact on how your bedroom looks. Here I've picked out some matching suggestions. They are all tied into together by the pink zebra stripe or animal print theme - some just feature more than others. But what I wanted to show you with these is how you can complement each with the proper use of color - for example don't you think the addition of a black outer curtain really adds drama to the window dressing? You can achieve the same effect by using black throws and throw pillows on the bed and chairs.
