New Year, New Kitchen…? It’s 2016, and the tables are turning. We want color in the kitchens! No beige or tan anymore. Black and white are fine with other colors thrown in but nothing plain and simple. We have gathered up the best colors to paint your kitchen in the new year!
Whether you choose a light gray-blue or royal blue, we want to see it in the kitchen! Blue always looks the best being added in to white kitchens. It looks breathtaking with a white marble countertop.
Yes, we said pink! We’re thinking more of a Rose Quartz color to go with Pantone’s colors of the year, but Barbie Pink can work as well, if you so wish. Add it in with white or gray so that it isn’t too overwhelming but keeps the high energy it is intended to present.
We know this counts as neutral, and you’re probably thinking, “if you want to get rid of beige, why would you bring in gray?” Good question. Beige has a yellowish tint and a very retro look, but not in a good way. Gray, on the other hand, has an elegant touch to it. If it is a little too blah, kick it up a notch with bright accent colors.
This is our last suggestion, and although it is a more specific color, this goes for a more specific style. We love seeing this color used throughout a rustic kitchen using lots of wooden and metal decor. It creates a cozy, warm feel inviting all family members and guests to turn the kitchen into the “hang out spot.”
