Red Kitchen Appliances and Accessories Sizzle
Though you can find almost any color to decorate your kitchen with, it seems red kitchen appliances and accessories have really become more popular in the past few years. In the kitchen, red works best as an accent color.
Having red appliances, such as this KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer, and even red curtains can be very pleasing, but adding all red walls is likely to cause adverse physical or psychological effects, such as a rise in blood pressure, or aggitation.

There are several different shades of red appliances and accessories available. It is easiest to stay in the same color shades or tones by purchasing appliances and accessories made by the same manufacturer, but on occasion, you can find a suitable match.
