Outdoor kitchen design ideas have become very popular in the current scenario. But a lot of people are very scared of designing their own outdoor kitchens. It is true that it is very easy to design your own kitchen indoors and not easy to design your kitchen outdoors.
This is the reason why most of the people go for custom made or ready made outdoor kitchen styles like the Basic Island, L-shape and the U-shape center. These are very common outdoor kitchen design ideas. But if you want something different you can go in for your own custom made outdoor kitchen design idea. But the best part would be if you could make it yourself.
Color theory is one of the ways in which you can make your own outdoor kitchens. The outdoor kitchen can be best understood in terms of its surroundings these surroundings include the nature and its colors around which nature revolves. Color theory has been used by landscape developers and architects for a long time now.
There are some key concepts that you need to keep in mind when you are trying to incorporate color theory in outdoor kitchen design plans. The first thing that you need to remember is the VIBGYOR pattern that you learnt in school and the three basic color being Red, Blue and Green and their composition which causes different colors.
Harmonious color combinations can be achieved if you give a good look to the color wheel of the VIBGYOR. But there are some combinations that can help you to achieve a good color in your outdoor kitchen design plans. These are the monochromatic, analogous, complimentary, split complimentary, triadic and tetradic color schemes.
Monochromatic color scheme uses the intensity of light while analogous scheme uses the combination of two colors that are adjacent on the color wheel. The complimentary and split complimentary schemes use the variation of colors that are placed in opposite directions on the color wheel. While the triadic scheme uses two colors that are spaced widely in the color scheme, the tetradic color scheme uses two pairs of complimentary colors.
These are the different forms of color schemes that are used in outdoor kitchen design ideas so that you can make a suitable one for yourself.
