Brighten up your Kitchen with Fun Red Kitchen Accessories.
It is a well know designer trick to use small pops of an accent color when designing a living area. There can be no better color to choose than a bright vibrant red in the kitchen. Red accessories look fantastic as a contrast color against, white, cream, green and black. Red doesn’t however generally go with pastels, except possibly a pale green.
Red kitchen accessories come not only in solid colors , there are also a vast range of different designs and colors. From a cheerful and cheeky red polka dot to more elegant and sophisticated red and white stripes. Also, consider red floral patterns, tomatoes, chili peppers and red apple kitchen accessories.
When choosing your kitchen accessories, you need to be mindful of the shade and hue of red you select. It might seem strange but there is an almost unlimited range of different colored reds from a deep crimson to bright and lively chrome red. Be wary of placing reds together that have completely different tones as they can clash badly.
My Top 10 ideas for adding Red Kitchen Accessories to your Kitchen, without breaking the budget.
Red Retro Coca Cola Tea Caddy Set
Red kitchen canisters offer a great way to add a splash of red to your kitchen decor. I love these fun coca cola canisters, the styling is retro with 3 different patterns. The artwork depicts pictures of old Coca-Cola advertising. These would make a great gift for a person that loves retro Cola-Cola advertising. I know there are many collectors of this type of memorabilia.
Hamilton Beach Red Electric Tea Kettle
Every kitchen needs a kettle. Whether you prefer an electric model or a stove top model the look of the kettle is important as it is on display all the time. One of my favorites is this red dome electric tea kettle made by Hamilton Beach. It has an unusual but striking design and is sure to complement your kitchen decor. It is practical as well as you can heat up water for your tea or coffee very quickly.
Red Retro Mechanical Kitchen Scales
A cheerful set of retro mechanical kitchen scales sitting on your countertop is just the ideal item to bring some red into the kitchen. Kitchen scales are best when they can be left out on the countertop as are needed frequently when preparing and cooking meals. These scales are both good looking and practical. The large dial makes the weights easy to read. I like the way the weighing bowl has a kind of point at one end this makes tipping the ingredients that have been weighed easier to tip into a bowl.
