9 Kitchen Color Schemes for Inspiration
The kitchen often becomes the centerpiece of your home. There is no right or wrong way to decorate in here. The best approach is to consider it to be the perfect expression of you or as an ultimate representation of your or your family’s personality. Whether you favor bold colors or are partial to a breezy feel, here are some kitchen color schemes for inspiration.
Bold and bright colors make a statement. You can choose to go with a single pop of color like an accent wall or an interesting piece of art. Or, be daring and select cabinets in a bright hue.
Shades of Grey
Grey is anything but boring. Use various shades of the color throughout the kitchen. What’s more, is that grey compliments both bold colors and muted ones. Consider a neutral background or a blank canvas. It is beneficial because you can change to look and feel of the kitchen, quickly, simply, and inexpensively.
White and Airy
Due to their flexibility, white kitchen cabinets seem never to go out of fashion. Create a pristine look by pairing white cabinets with white subway tile, white furniture, and white accessories. Or, think of it as a canvas in which you can splash color to create a vibrant, energetic space.
Designers are utilizing muted colors for cabinets, wall color, furniture, and accessories. What is great about muted colors is that not one color will stand out above another, so you can mix and match to your heart’s desire. The result is a fresh, homey, and welcoming space.
For this look, think rich wood cabinet finishes, dark colored countertops, and flooring. Accent the look with elegant fixtures and appliances. You can choose neutral wall color or decide to enhance the look with bold paint choices.
A Blue Period
Just as with grey, blue is a neutral color that can be used in many shades, without overwhelming the space. And, as a bonus, the color blue evokes feelings of peace and tranquility.
Shades of orange, like melon and peach, represent enthusiasm, happiness, and creativity. You can choose to either go bold with deep shades of the color or light and airy with pastels or muted tones, both of which create a welcoming, cheery space.
White and black offers the perfect backdrop for a kitchen. You can use bold or muted colors. Elegant and tradition fixtures or modern, sleek ones. You have almost unlimited possibilities here.
The Grass is Always Greener
Green symbolizes nature, harmony, freshness, and fertility. Dark hues of green offer a rich and bold feel. However, pastel greens elicit a peaceful feeling. In addition, green accessories compliment many other colors.
