It is one of the favourite colours of children due to its vibrancy. In the drawings, in fact, it is chosen instinctively to convey the desire to do and their joy of living.
Given its intensity, it is always good not to overdo the shades of red, since from an energy source it can turn into a source of aggression and violence.
When choosing red, the characteristics of the environments in which it is to be used must be carefully considered.

Why choose red as the colour of the kitchen and coffee machine
Given the particularity of red and the risk of excessively enlivening some environments, it is not recommended using it in the spaces or rooms of the house where you relax. So, it’s best to leave red out of the bedroom, children’s rooms and living room.
However, a hint of energy is always welcome in larger rooms that are well suited to strong and vital shades.
The kitchen, a place where imagination and creativity rule, can host red elements without the final effect being affected.
Instead, a studied use of red in the kitchen can give a harmonious effect and create a pleasant and welcoming visual impact.
Here are some tips for using red at home without weighing down the rooms.
The contrast of the red colour
Those who love red colour know that creatin an environment totally in this colour can be tiring and, above all, it can flatten everything.
To ensure that each element has the right weight it is important to play with contrasts.
Alternating red with black, white, grey, or blue is the best way to make it the protagonist and highlight the choices made.
White is the tone that best emphasizes the vitality and strength of red.
Placing a red appliance or coloured accessories in a white kitchen is the best way to make them stand out and make the combinations noticeable.
Otherwise, you can play with the colour of the walls.
The white colour and the red kitchen furniture (or the other way around) create a combination with a strong and pleasant visual impact.
Grey is another of the ideal colours to combine with red.
It is a less bright tone than white and makes the contrast softer and more delicate.
The result of this mix is an elegant and modern effect that matches perfectly with domestic appliances in steel.
Blue and black are more neutral colours that give a particular character to the rooms.
In contrast with the red they give an elegant, strong, and impactful image.
The combination is best expressed by altering black and blue with red furniture or accessories. In this case it is good that the colour of the walls is white in order to illuminate the rooms and highlight the coloured elements.
Red in the kitchen floors
The choice of floors is one of the most important things when building or renovating a home.
The kitchen is an essential and very lived-in room. Therefore, the material to be used must be carefully evaluated: it must be resistant and easy to clean.
The colour of the kitchen floors is very important, both to create a welcoming environment and to give a pleasant and harmonious style with the rest of the house.
When you prefer red, it is good to weigh the effect you want to give.
With the red floor in terracotta or ceramic, you can opt for a shabby, vintage or country style.
It is possible to light up a room with a white furniture, while for the walls, the ideal combination is with white, very light grey and beige.
The red floor in the kitchen makes the room warmer and is ideal for a room to live in at any time of the day, at mealtimes or to enjoy a freshly made espresso.
Alternatively, you can opt for red tiles to alternate with white, or choose a dark red parquet treated so that it can withstand daily use in the kitchen.
The monochrome black or white tiles, on the other hand, match perfectly with the red kitchen furniture, both lacquered and in country style.
The result, in fact, will be excellent from the point of view of contrasts, ensuring that red remains the true protagonist of the room.
The combination between red and green
It may seem strange but one of the colours that goes best with red is green.
It is certainly a risky combination, especially if we are talking about domestic environments and, particularly, the kitchen.
Red and green are two complementary colours, but you have to sharpen your eye and do many experiments before combining them in the correct way.
Both, in fact, have different shades of colour and after many attempts you will find the perfect combination.
In order not to get the Christmas effect and, consequently, not to be able to do it again after a couple of weeks, dark green should be avoided.
It is better to choose a lighter colour.
The easiest way to add green in the kitchen is by putting plants.
Jars with spices under the windows or some houseplants can give freshness to the kitchen.
The important thing is that you choose an adequate light and that the ideal temperature for them to survive.
To embellish a red kitchen with green, you can also place bouquets of fresh flowers in the centre of the table.
Generally, a compromise to give dynamism to a room is to focus on accessories.
Last tips for choosing the red colour
Although red is one of the most popular colours, deciding which red elements to include in your home raises enormous doubts.
In fact, choosing the colour of the walls is always difficult, given the financial commitment and the fear of not being able to live with the same shade for too long.
So before getting too excited, it’s always good to sit down and evaluate the possibilities.
Red walls are always challenging and only few, actually, decide to create environments totally painted in this way.
However, in this case, you can play with contrasts and insert white furniture and metal accessories, such as appliances or the stainless-steel coffee machine.
By doing this, lively and bright combinations are created that enhance both the red and the chosen furniture items.
With red walls it would be better to avoid tone-on-tone furniture.
Red furniture matches perfectly with white or soft grey. Or they create a nice contrast with the black floors, while keeping the white walls.
In a red kitchen you can add grey elements, such as accessories, as well as the kitchen top or white and black accessories.
Red appliances are an interesting alternative to liven up rooms and give an original touch to the home.
Buying a red coffee machine or other decor items in this shade can add an original touch to the kitchen. In this case, the ideal is to create special spaces in which to highlight them, such as a coffee corner in the kitchen or a home bar, so that they have the right importance.
Furthermore, with a mobile element such as the coffee machine, it is possible to change the arrangement, creating a dynamic effect that does not weigh down the spaces and, in the long run, does not risk tiring.
