Interestingly, red kitchens are the most searched for the term by quite a bit compared to other rooms.  I suppose this makes sense given the kitchen is the most often renovated room these days.  Here’s the chart comparing trends of various red rooms of the home.

Red Interior Color Examples

1. Red Kitchens

Modern red kitchen

If you want a red kitchen, you must first choose which color of red you want to use. The direction that the kitchen faces can help influence the color palette for the kitchen. A kitchen that faces the south or southwest lends itself to more fiery colors, such as bright red. Red is also a good color for kitchens that face northwest, but instead of fiery reds, they should be deeper in color. A cranberry or maroon red is often best for kitchens facing that direction. The design style of the kitchen can be a consideration as well.

2. Red Dining Rooms

Make a statement with a red dining room.  Red is more popular than you think because it’s bold and as you’ll see below, can be grand and elegant.  While not for everyone, red can certainly be an interesting interior design color scheme. Red offers a way to make a room more inviting by the warmth it brings to space. A room with northern exposure can have the same welcoming atmosphere as a sunny one. The color makes a difference. You can use it as an overall color or on the trim for a more understated appearance.
