Matching Your Color Scheme

One concern you may have when choosing the perfect color palate for your kitchen is how it will match with your cabinetry and appliances that are already in place. Typically, darker finishes and appliances will do well with warm, contemporary or bright colors. While kitchen colors with white cabinets do well with bolder and pastel colors, or even other shades of white, because they already do a great job of brightening up the room.

1. Variations Of White

If you love what’s trending right now, creating a kitchen with variations of white is hot. Subway tiles and mixed shades of white can truly make your kitchen feel bright and clean as you cook. This is a timeless color scheme and is great if you’re going for a farmhouse kitchen look.

2. Warm & Wonderful

Surround yourself with warmth as you cook with colors that reflect how you feel. Use light reds, oranges and yellow hues. Benjamin Moore makes a perfect warm color palate that’s great for a cozy kitchen called Spicy & Modern Yellow. It utilizes a soft shade of white to really make the trim pop.

3. Cool & Calm

From everyday cooking to small gatherings the kitchen tends to be an active center of the home. Give yourself, your family and guests a relaxed feel with a cool kitchen color scheme. Use soft greens or blues on kitchen walls and compliment with a light gray for the trim.

4. Bright & Yellow

The kitchen should be a cheerful place and your paint. By using yellow, you can either go bold and contemporary with sleek cabinet hardware and stainless steel appliances, or choose a lighter yellow for a vintage look. Behr has a great color palate with Upbeat yellow as it’s wall color and soft white and black as accents, giving it an ageless appeal.

5. Bold & Turquoise

If you’re going for a retro look, turquoise is it. This is my latest favorite in kitchen color trends. It’s a bold color, but not shocking and comes in many different shades. If you’re not feeling risky, go with a softer turquoise with white or crème accents. If you want your kitchen to truly make a statement, go with a brighter turquoise and incorporate various shades of light blue or green, with accents of gray.
