Color can be the best source for self-expression, and today’s homeowners are expressing themselves in the heart of the home – the kitchen. Gone are the days of floor-to-ceiling white kitchens. This year, splashing bold colors on walls, cabinetry, and accents is remaining a top trend.
Rich jewel tones that contrast popular stainless steel appliances are quickly becoming the go-to colors. Inspired by the Pantone Color of the Year, radiant orchid, designers are seeing a plethora of purples and violets. If jewel tones are too bright, utilizing a light violet can create a softer look as shown in this Houzz project.
Blues, ranging from electric blue to a light turquoise, bring an “uplifting influence on the ambiance of a room,” according to the Decoist.com. From nautical to retro, blues fit nearly any personality. View the Decoist’s blue kitchen gallery.
The burgeoning black, gray, and copper color scheme is not hiding from the kitchen. This dark color palette now has an updated look and is spreading to every room in the house. Light gray has officially replaced white for a lighter look while utilizing black cabinetry, countertops, and bold fixtures adds drama, especially when accented with now popular metallic copper.
