Can Your Kitchen Paint Color Make You Hungry? (Or Full?)

I recently came by an online article by Amy Preiser on shelterpop.com about paint color selection for kitchens. This is what she says:

When choosing paint colors for your kitchen, we know you're already balancing what you want, what your family wants and what works with the rest of your home. Now here's one more thing to throw into the equation: What color will make you overeat?

Take a look at these two kitchens. Does one of them make you feel more hungry than the other?

Whether or not you felt it from the gallery, in real life it's the red kitchen that subconsciously stimulates your appetite. It also ups your blood pressure and heart rate, getting you all excited to act on that hunger. It's certainly the reason that fast food and supermarket chains rely on the hue for their logos. We're onto you, Wendy's and Costco!

Meanwhile, blue has the opposite affect: It lowers blood pressure and pulse rate and among all the colors, is the least appetizing. Why? A combination of blue's calming effect and the simple fact that our bodies are trained to not associate blue with food. Think about it: Besides blueberries and the rare blue potato, can you name any other foods found in nature that are blue?

Even if you're not about to repaint the entire room, keep this color psychology in mind when decorating the kitchen: Blue plates might help you eat less and a red tablecloth can be perfect for festive family meals when you want to keep everybody at the table.

We would recommend them highly. [They] painted and did a good job. Kept everything clean and cleaned up after, very polite.

Very professional, I appreciate the time they took to make sure everything was taken care of for my house! I really liked that Jaime stepped up and told me not to paint my front door like the house and then chose a color that worked great. Thank you!

Eric and his crew were on time every day and did a very thorough job. I was thrilled that they were willing to paint my outdoor light fixtures which were getting rusty. I was particularly impressed how much time they spent going over their work at the end to catch spots that were missed. I’ll be using them again for interior painting.

Mark and the team from Brook’s Painting are exceptional at their jobs. We recently renovated a 5000sqft home and they did all the painting. Their attention to detail and investment in our project is so appreciated, and we knew we were in good hands with them. The value they add by identifying issues, making suggestions and going the extra mile to deliver quality work and make sure we are happy with our home is such a breath of fresh air. I would hire this team and company for any future work in a heartbeat and can’t say enough how amazing they are!

Brooks did a fantastic job on our exterior and interior paint jobs. Quality was high, price was reasonable, and the team was extremely professional and detail-oriented. Mark was our crew lead and the team performed a number of exterior wood repairs, a door re-stain, interior and exterior painting. Mark clearly takes a lot of pride in his work and went above and beyond to ensure the work was high-quality, including finding exact matching siding to fix dry rot, and performing minor repairs that weren't even included in the quote. He and the team were all consistently positive and personable, joking with each other throughout the day, while also genuinely complimenting each other on the quality of their work. It was great to see, and that positivity definitely showed through the work they did. We couldn't be happier with the end result.
