Understanding the basics of color design can be a daunting if not overwhelming task. But with help from Kitchens.com, homeowners can save time, money and headaches by learning the fundamentals of using color in their kitchens.
Presented in a new, interactive interface with easy-to-understand graphics, Kitchens.com's Color Basics breaks down into three sections. Color Types (http://www.kitchens.com/design/color/color-basics/color-types.aspx) clarifies the classification of colors while Describing Color (http://www.kitchens.com/design/color/color-basics/describing-color.aspx) explains the jargon of color design--from tints to shades, chroma to temperature. Finally, Color Combinations (http://www.kitchens.com/design/color/color-basics/color-combinations.aspx) describes basic color schemes that can serve as the foundation for a kitchen's color design.
Vivid photography brings color to life with kitchens and products that exemplify refined color design. Color Basics' interactive design lets homeowners learn about color design and discover their favorite shades with an engaging interface.
