Adobe, which is a clay-like material formed into sun-dried bricks, used to build thick-walled homes are prominent in the desert southwest.

Adobe homes have a mud plaster covering to keep the bricks from cracking, and this plaster is found on both the exterior and interior as well. If your house isn’t adobe, the interior plaster can be imitated with certain painting techniques to add depth and texture to the walls. Stucco can also be used to add a southwestern aesthetic to the kitchen.

Southwestern Color Palette

The palette for a home with a southwestern design is mainly earth tones but in lighter shades. Since many southwestern houses are in desert climates, using dark or fiery colors can draw more heat. However, using softer versions can help keep the kitchen cooler. These colors include white, turquoise, light yellow, pale orange, and neutral colors like light tan.

The walls in a kitchen may also feature Mosaic or hand-painted tiles as backsplashes, on counters, and on the floors. A tiled floor can also help keep a home cooler during the summer months. These examples of southwestern kitchen design ideas can help you decide on which design elements to include in your home.
