Red is an intense and sensual color, it is trendy and sharp, it leaves an indelible impression.
There is a wide variety of reds in home decor ranging from almost crimson to scarlet with carmine and many hues of red in between. Here are some samples but remember that paint and what you see in a paint color may vary widely. By the same token, one crimson red from one paint company could be different from another. In matter of name colors it is best not to trust the name and have samples of the color you will be using.
Red is particularly effective in dining areas and eat-in kitchens as it stimulates appetite. With white red is amazing even bombastic, it is also great with black that is so prevalent in home decor today. Yellow as in saffron yellow brings a very graphic and oriental touch to a red decor.
But not everyone is ready to have an all red kitchen or even red walls in a red kitchen. One way to add touches of red in your kitchen is to use red kitchen accessories.
Here is a list of red kitchen accessories that could really make a striking impact.

This is a whimsical 5-piece knife set holder that will surely lighten up your kitchen and make your friends smile. The set includes an 8-inch Chef’s knife, an 8-inch bread knife, 8-inch carver, 5-inch utility knife, and a 3-1/2-inch parer. The bold ABS plastic figurine stores them all and at 14.5 inches tall it is fairly high, so you might want to measure your space before ordering. Plastic casings house every knife to prevent blade exposure, but some people have removed the casing successfully for a cleaner look.
The knives are of excellent quality as they feature heavy-gauge stainless-steel construction and a razor-sharp precision cutting blade. Hollow, ergonomically designed handles ensure a secure grip. The set comes covered by a 25-year warranty.
Other red kitchen accessories you might consider are lights. If you have a dining table in the room, nothing will tie it in better than a beautiful red pendant light they range in price from under $50 to over $200 depending on the style, brand and quality you choose. But you need not look for a very expensive light to find a very nice one at an affordable price. Personally I really like the Porto Satin Nickel Dome Pendant, it has a beautiful satiny red matte glass, it uses one 100 watts bulb and provides plenty of light over the table.
There are of course countless other red kitchen accessories like
red cookware and utensils. Remember also that most kitchen accessories always make great housewarming gifts, everyone can use a few red spice jars or canisters.
