Kitchen color palettes

Your average kitchen is usually composed of walls filled with cabinets, cooking and prepping areas, and perhaps a kitchen island. These flat and hard surfaces may tend to look bland and unappealing, but these are the elements of a kitchen that make it functional and practical. 

As studies have shown, warm colors bring a positive energy and can boost the appetite.

Use color to bring a brand new energy into your kitchen... 

Warm colors

Reds, oranges and yellows are the warm colors within the color spectrum. As studies have shown, warm colors bring a positive energy and can boost the appetite. Using these colors in your kitchen can help create an ambiance conducive to preparing delightful meals. Choose bright tones for a modern look and more subdued shades for the more traditional. 

Healthy green

Introduce a sense of freshness and healthiness in your kitchen by creating a verdant color scheme. The color green is reminiscent of fresh vegetables and healthy food. Influence your cooking and your cravings by choosing green. Use the color as an accent with the backsplash and some accessories. Or if you’re willing to go for a bolder aesthetic, you may also paint your cabinets green. 

Organic neutrals

If you’re not that big on color, you may also opt for neutrals. With a neutral color scheme, it’s important to be mindful of the materials, as grays and beiges are unassuming colors that let textures shine through. Create a warm atmosphere in your kitchen by choosing organic materials. You may even add a small vertical herb garden in your kitchen to bring in real nature indoors. 

Sleek and modern

Another approach to kitchen color is highlighting its function and utilitarian aspects. Sleek and modern designs go well with black, white and grays. Choose a stainless steel finish for the faucets, appliances, knobs and pulls. This makes for a masculine vibe perfect for bachelor pad kitchens. - Aislinn Kee
