Neutral colors are often underrated, but they can be used in various ways and will never go out of style. When it comes to kitchen color, white is still the dominant option. It is always on the top of the National Kitchen and Bath Association’s (NKBA’s) annual Design Trends Survey of the most popular kitchen color. However, there are plenty of other neutrals that can work well, too. This article will discuss the versatility of neutral colors for the kitchen and some of the best ways to use them!
But what if you want to add color to your kitchen? Here are a few ways you can easily add a pop of color to make your kitchen look fresh and fun.
New Window Treatments
Replace neutral blinds and curtains with window treatments that are eye-catching and bright. Select a solid color that matches your kitchen decor, or if you’re feeling extra spicy, choose window treatments in a stylish, bold print.
Kitchens see a lot of foot traffic, and rugs are a practical solution for keeping the floor clean and the noise level down. Instead of picking a rug in neutral tones, select one with a bright design that fits with your kitchen’s color scheme. Just make sure you purchase a rug with the right pad for your flooring type.
If your kitchen has an island, you can consider choosing painted base cabinets to add a splash of color to your otherwise neutral space. Select a deep blue for a subtle look or paint the cabinet a cheerful yellow.
Add a decorative tile backsplash that complements your kitchen decor. If you choose a bold design, consider installing a tile accent in a small space, like around the stove. This eye-catching change will bring color and character to your kitchen decor.
Colorful Cookware or Glass Accents
Most people choose cookware and dinnerware in neutral colors to adapt to any color scheme. Instead, consider buying pieces with bright, bold designs and displaying them on kitchen shelves. These colorful pieces can act as cookware and home decor simultaneously.
Wallpaper is far from out of style, and there are plenty of wet-space-safe designs on the market perfectly designed for kitchen walls. So select a fun print and create an accent wall to make your kitchen space pop.
Unique Pendant Lighting
Pendant lights are a trending choice in home design, and they’re so easy to install. Many pendant lights are equipped with a plug, so all you’ll need is a nearby outlet and a ceiling hook. They come in all shapes and sizes, colors and prints, so pick a light fixture that gives your kitchen character instead of choosing a light fixture that’s made of stainless steel or glass.
Neutral kitchens may be en vogue, but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for a colorless space. Whether you want to incorporate a peaceful shade of blue or a pop of color that’s bright and cheerful, you’ll be surprised easy it is to add color to your kitchen. Keep these tips in mind as you plan your kitchen remodeling project.
