Kitchen Color Trends

The kitchen is a place for a multitude of colors and textures, but certain colors often work better together than others do.

The stunning appeal of the best kitchen designs comes from various textures, colors, patterns and materials working together to create an overall feel. One reason these kitchens work is because of certain kitchen color trends that point designers toward a "no-fail zone" when choosing a palette for the space.

For example, green and silver work together well in a kitchen with cabinets that have been painted sage green and paired with light wood flooring and stainless steel appliances and hardware. The overall effect is almost ethereal when used in a kitchen with natural lighting and a minimalist design.

On the other end of the spectrum are red and white, which always work well together in a bold kitchen space. Consider pairing spicy red walls with white cabinets and countertops to create a stark contrast and overall contemporary feel.

Other kitchen space color pairings that work well are blue and black, gray and brown, and white and black. Jewel tones, like deep brown cabinets paired with a blue and green mosaic backsplash, can also work well together to create a clean, fresh kitchen atmosphere.
