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.
White Shiplap and Sage Green Cabinetry in Country Kitchen With Bench Seating Breakfast Nook
A black-and-white patterned tile, custom vent hood and pot-filler faucet are fixed between upper and lower cabinetry in this stylish country kitchen. On the facing wall a mounted indoor herb garden adds a natural life to the room. Hardwood flooring and the soft sage color of the cabinets pair with the granite countertop and shiplap walls for a timeless, inviting look.
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.
After 10. In the old space, the old sink was a stand alone vanity, not leaving any space for other appliances. With the new cabintes, and sink, the Kitchen Cousins were able to put a new built-in dishwasher for the Grahams. This is a huge addition to the new kitchen. There was always room for a dishwasher, but no place to put one till now. As seen on HGTV's "Kitchen Cousins".
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.
Corner Drawers in Green Cottage Kitchen
Even the cabinets in this space make the homeowners' lives easier. The corner drawers take advantage of wasted space in the kitchen by providing extra storage.
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.
Kitchen With Custom Island
Joanna Gaines's recommendation was not simply to expand the kitchen, but to actually relocate it. The new kitchen is in a space that was previously a den. In the new layout, the old kitchen becomes the combined pantry and laundry room.
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.
Open Storage in Contemporary Kitchen
Floating shelves and open cabinets serve as decorative storage in this contemporary kitchen. Soft gray subway tiles provide a beautiful backdrop, and dark countertops add a splash of contrast.
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.
Modern Kitchen With Back-Beveled Marble Island
Working from an architectural plan for a yet-to-be constructed new home, the designer relocated the planned entrance and walk-in-pantry to cater to the clients’ wish-list. A double-sided island topped with striated, chunky back-beveled marble takes center stage among amethyst-colored walls.
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.
