As promised, today we want to talk about our all time favorite colors to use in the kitchen. The kitchen is often considered the heart of the home. That has always been the case in my own home. Growing up, we would all gather in the kitchen, doing homework, chatting about days and snacking while dinner was made. Now that I have my own home, I find myself enjoying the time spent in the kitchen doing those same things (minus the homework!). It's a room that gets a lot of use and deserves some attention.
So let's get started...
1. Of course: Classic White:
It's clean, classic and beautiful. Using a bright white, like our whisper, is a great choice if you like the idea of having a classic space. It's not only beautiful, but provides a great backdrop for pops of color from flowers, pots, etc. We love how it is done here with light counter tops and and backsplash. Try Whisper throughout to get this look.
2. A neutral that is anything but boring:
Still clean, still classic, but with just a hint of warmth - using a neutral like Puff makes incorporating warmer details like this wood counter top easy and beautiful.
3. A muted green-gray:
Who says color is just for the walls? We love a good painted cabinet and these, done in a muted green-gray like our color Truss, are perfect. They are elegant and give the room a sense of color without feeling overpowering.
4. Sunny Yellow:
When I was little I dreamed of having a yellow kitchen. It's sunny, bright, and happy - perfect for a room in which so much time is spent. Try our color, Buzz, for a bold yellow wall like this one or go for bee if you want a slightly more subtle effect. Definitely pair yellow with a white cabinet as opposed to a natural wood so the warmth of the yellow pops rather than competing with the warmth of the wood.
5. Softest of Grays:
A new classic: soft gray. It's subtle and oh so beautiful. My new personal favorite. Our color Mist is the perfect light gray - with just a hint of pigment it looks great next to a bright white like whisper.
6. Bold Blue:
A rich navy done on the lower cabinets like this creates a beautiful, dynamic space. Adding a bold color on the lower level adds drama to the space and makes it visually interesting. If you like this look try using our color Bolt on your lower cabinets.
7. Deep Gray:
A deep gray works well when combining white and wood accents together. Our color Fedora is a great gray for this purpose. Both bright whites and darker wood tones will tie together nicely when used with Fedora.
8. A bold red:
Now we don't suggest painting your whole kitchen in this bright, bold hue (but who are we to judge?), but just a touch of this orangy-red can take your kitchen to the next level. It adds vibrancy to an otherwise stark space. Try our color Truck if you like this look. We love it on bar stools like this!
And there you have it, our eight favorite colors to use in the kitchen. Will you be painting yours sometime soon?
