Adding Color to the KitchenColby Morrell
The kitchen is the hardest working room in your home and it’s where we spend a lot of time. Why not add your favorite hue and make a statement? Color does amazing things for a kitchen, and while we love a crisp white kitchen, don’t be afraid to step out of the box and really punch up the color. Read on to see the ways you can add color to your own kitchen!
Add Colorful Cabinetry
Cabinetry accounts for about 60 percent of your kitchen’s surfaces, so installing cabinets in your chosen shade will inject a huge splash of color. If buying colored cabinets is out of the question, try painting existing cabinetry. It’s an economical choice that allows you to add a personal element to your kitchen.
Add a Colorful Door
A door becomes more than just a door when you paint in a pop of color. This is the perfect opportunity to infuse a little bit of color to create a focal point, or to compliment other colors in the space – think a pantry or mudroom door.
Make a Statement with Your Backsplash
Don’t be afraid to go bold with your backsplash and create a focal point in your kitchen. A tile in a colorful hue adds depth to your kitchen and could make smaller ones seem larger. If you don’t have the luxury of a light filled kitchen, adding color in your backsplash will help make the room feel lighter.
Use Your Collection of Dishes
If the thought of adding color in a more permanent way scares you, then try displaying your colorful dishes. This is particularly great for kitchens with open shelving or glass cabinet doors. This will allow you to switch things up as often as you’d like!
Most of our kitchens have a bar or island with room for seating. This is another spot to add a dash of color. Bar stools painted in a fun hue add an unexpected pop to a kitchen.
