Color My Kitchen!

The all-white kitchen has been in vogue as few object to its simplicity, grace and versatility. But it may be time to give the kitchen a bit more color.


Kitchen design pioneers are coloring up the cooking arena in various ways. They are bringing in the feeling of nature and adding splashes of boldness. If pushing the color boundary sounds exciting, here are a few places to begin.

Accents: Accent colors add personality and visual interest. For example, blue upholstered chairs around the island. Patterned multi-colored window treatments and area rugs. Ombre, brushed brass, gunmetal or gold rose lighting or faucet fixtures. Counter to ceiling bold backsplashes. Multi-colored flooring.


Appliances: Stainless steel has serious competition in its cousin, black stainless steel or even matte black. Other emerging colors include red, orange, yellow and blue. Any color that pops can work. Consider appliances with knobs, handles or front panels in a special color and the rest more traditional stainless or white.


Walls and Cabinets: Green, green-blue and blue cabinets have surged in popularity, often in two tones, which can add depth. Pantone’s color of the year is Classic Blue, described as the sky at dusk. Consider mixing white upper cabinets with lower navy blue lower cabinets or light upper and dark green lower cabinets for a nature-inspired look.


Know Your Colors? Blues and yellows exude calm in different ways. Green exudes vitality and freshness, red offers boldness and excitement. If you shy away from bold colors, more subdued pastels in blue, yellow, pink or green could work – soft, but color-infused.
