10 Chic Colors That Will Make a Statement in Your Kitchen
Skip the neutrals and give your kitchen a dose of color.
Flowers aren’t the only thing in bloom this spring. Where classic white and wood tones have long dominated kitchen styles, bright and bold pops of color are making an appearance—and we’re taking notice. Here are 10 stylish shades that will make a fun and fresh statement in your kitchen.
If you love earth tones or designs by Joanna Gaines, then you’ll enjoy the use of forest green in this transitional kitchen. Where the white walls open the space, the dark green adds depth and creates a stunning contrast.
Alternatively, going a few shades lighter can produce the perfect neutral. With this pale green in your kitchen, you’ll enjoy all the benefits of eggshell or ivory but with a hint of warmth and unexpected character.
Speaking of greens, check out the seafoam-colored cabinets and backsplash in this cozy cottage-style kitchen by Sarah Stacey. Paired with brass hardware and white countertops, the color is rich and stylish.
If seafoam isn’t quite your style but you want to achieve a similar look, opt for a cool-toned mint. Here the color serves as a serene background in a crisp, modern kitchen.
Blues often work well in the kitchen—and this light blue shade is no exception. Here, the soft-colored subway tile complements the white cabinets, stools and island to create an inviting French country setting.
A classic spring shade, Robin’s egg is another example of a successful blue. In this open concept kitchen designed by Signature Designs Kitchen & Bath, the color easily pops against the white cabinets.
How cute is this multicolored modern kitchen? With a combination of green, blue and pink, the space is at once cheerful and bold in style. Plus, using multiple colors allows for maximum creativity.
For a more subtle display of color, choose a pale yellow like this design by Kimberly Nigro. Reminiscent of daffodils in spring, the yellow shelves in this contemporary kitchen gently brighten the gray subway tile without being overwhelming.
On the other hand, some colors are so bold that they’re simply irresistible. Set against the wood cabinets and dropped ceiling, the amethyst-colored walls add a dramatic flair reminiscent of black (but without the edge).
In this cottage-style kitchen, a red island also makes a statement. Where the light purple and green tile grounds the space, the red catches the eye and warms the surrounding cabinets.
