Colorful Kitchens / September 24, 2018 / Alfred Johnson.
Whites, soft grays and warm woods have dominated the kitchen style arena lately. But there are those who want to amp up the color in their kitchens. While some wade in with soft blues, others want to make dinner surrounded by hues like a sunny yellow or an electrifying cobalt. If you’re considering a cabinet makeover, check out these bold and beautiful paint options.
Lemon yellow. No matter how sleepy the homeowners are, this bright farmhouse kitchen must perk them right up in the morning. A pitcher of sunflowers is right at home in the yummy lemon yellow room. Note the way the designers painted the trim to match the cabinets. They did this around the windows and doors as well as on a narrow piece of molding around the ceiling to continue the brightness around the room.
Kelly green. These homeowners wanted to play with bright color in their lake-house kitchen. A white backsplash and Carrara marble countertops provide a strong contrast to the invigorating hue, while wood floors and a wood island countertop warm things up.
Crafted of oak and incorporating dramatic purple cabinetry, this kitchen is an antidote to all the white and gray designs around. “I like color and enjoy putting some into my kitchens,” says Stephen Graver, who designed this striking room. “There are a lot of gray kitchens out there!”
