If so, you are not alone. Many homeowners do exactly that and others may find them here like you, reading this blog trying to figure out some of the best ways they can go about bringing a bit of liveliness to their kitchen area.
Incorporating color into your kitchen can help unify the overall aesthetic of a kitchen’s design and structure. This pop of color is sure to bring vibrancy and energy to your space.
Color can make your kitchen a reflection of your personal style and create a much happier place.
These ideas on ways that you can add color to a kitchen will definitely help you add your favorite color to the heart of your home. That’s right, The kitchen!
1. Backsplash is your friend!
From stainless steel, glass, marble, and wood to porcelain, tile, and stone, you really can’t go wrong when it comes to choosing the right color and texture. The use of colorful tile adds a bit of texture and personality to your bland and blank kitchen wall.
You will want to ensure that you choose a very durable splash that is easy to maintain and clean. Now, you don’t have to go crazy with it! A few rows will do the trick.
The most popular locations to install your backsplash are extended up to the ceiling for a bold feature and focal point or just a few rows right below your upper cabinets.
2. Wallpaper is making a comeback.
Many people still feel that the use of wallpaper is still way outdated and a thing of the past. Well, I am here to tell you that it has definitely grown more popular in the few years.
Wallpaper can be a great option when trying to bring in a pop of color or two. Be sure to choose a colorful pattern and keep in mind that you will need to ensure that your kitchen will be easy to clean by avoiding the use of extremely textured wallpaper as those are not so easy to clean.
3. White cabinets… forget about it.
Did you know that 60% of your kitchen’s surfaces are cabinets? Adding color to your cabinetry will give your space just the right amount of sizzle and style that you are looking for.
Balance is the thing to remember here. Adding color can sometimes overwhelm the entire space—it is a good idea that you balance the cabinetry with tons of open stage space and keep those walls white.
This will make the space feel light and bright and can also appear larger than it really is.
4. The kitchen island needs love, too.
So, maybe you are not quite ready to be bold and commit to adding color to all of the cabinetry—and that is more than okay! You have a beautiful kitchen island just screaming for attention.
You could opt for painting the island in your favorite color or shade as an accent color. Not only does it take less time to paint the island than it does the rest of the cabinets, but it also allows you to experiment with color.
Always be mindful of the other aesthetics and colors in the space. Ensure that you are complementing those beautiful wood floors, for example.
5. Natural color will never disappoint.
One of the most beautiful touches in a kitchen is the beauty of nature itself. You can incorporate beautiful wood tones throughout.
From the floors and seating to the kitchen island this may be all the color you need. The wood tones complement the white walls and cabinets and scream “home”.
If you want to add pops of color as well, opt for using fresh fruits like lemons, limes, and oranges resting in a wood-toned bowl or basket on the countertops.
You can also get very crafty by utilizing some greenery. Whether that be a small window plant or a clear glass vase with flowers. This look will not disappoint.
Congrats! You now have some new ideas on ways that you can liven up your kitchen with your favorite color.
