For walls, cabinets, and ceiling, lighter shades of blue work best to achieve a crisp and clean look. You can also opt for dark blues but remember to accent the rest of the room with hints of neutral tones like white and gray to keep it from feeling too intense and dark. You can also use two shades of the same color or add a bold pattern to make a bolder statement. This color is energizing and perfect when used sparingly as they can easily overpower a room.
This color can instantly brighten up any room like a ray of sunshine. Yellow is believed to make people hungry. So, yes, it definitely makes sense to use it in a place where you can associate the idea of having food. Yellow also instantly makes people feel calm and happy, and it’s perfect to make small places look bigger and brighter. It pairs well with white and gray accents like this sample photo.
Its neutral color has been taking center stage in many homes recently. You probably think this color is too cold but with the right shade, it can work wonders in the kitchen. Gray is also perfect as a base color because it easily complements other hues, just the perfect canvas to personalize as your taste changes with the season. It will give you more opportunity to use other color in your accessories like a rug with a bold pattern or dinnerware in fun colors. You can also add a fresh vase of flowers or plants to easily liven things up.
Green has a lot of different shades that will work in the kitchen. There’s mint, apple green, and even emerald green. This striking shade can add a jolt of energy in your kitchen area when used as for an accent wall, island, cabinets, and even the ceiling or the floor. Green also works well with white and wood accents.
One of the best colors if you’re going for a moody look is dark red. Pair it with equal-intensity colors to balance it out. This kitchen allows the red island at the center to take the spotlight by painting the cabinets black. The light backsplash and countertops also keep the painted pieces from feeling heavy.
The best part about using white is that you don’t have to commit to a single color scheme. A neutral kitchen lets you add non-permanent ways to add colors like choosing a colorful window treatment, or adding some furniture in bold shades. You can even add an eye-catching art or a beautiful collection of pottery and it won’t clash with everything else in the room.
