Healthy Design Elements and Principles

Space: Design your kitchen as a healthy living space. If you love the minimal style, use soothing and relaxing colors, for example, shades of blue, green, taupe, gray, or white. If you want something more vibrant choose red, but research shows the color red can make you hungry. Choose what you love! Add pops of color with accessories or even flowers.
