Kitchen colour trends
Out with the pure white and in with the bold. We are starting to see shades of blue, yellow and even darker tones like brown and black appear in the trendiest kitchens across Canada.
The kitchen is the focal point of many homes, so naturally you want to make it an inviting space to gather, share, create and eat. Selecting the right colours can really make a word of difference in your kitchen.
Let’s take a look at some colours that will help you liven up the heart of your home and how you can best incorporate them.
Bold is beautiful
It may surprise you but bold, dark colours are really appealing in the kitchen right now. In a recent survey, homeowners named black, deep brown, dark red and copper tones as some of the most popular paint colours for their updated kitchen. If you’re hesitant about this new trend but are itching for a pop of colour, we suggest painting just one wall, a ceiling or even the floor a deep shade.
Freshen up with blue
Lighter pastels are also very appropriate and add a touch of elegance in the kitchen. If you’re a big fan of blue, but think it has no place in the kitchen, you don’t know what you’re missing. Lighter pastel blues work very nicely as an accent colour, especially if you’re going for a fresh and airy feel. Painted blue cabinets are lovely when married with a crisp white backsplash. Refacing your cabinets is a great, affordable way to change the look of your kitchen.
Boost your mood with orange
Get your jolt of optimism by spreading on some mood-boosting tones. Studies have shown the colour orange stimulates optimism and a positive outlook. So, if you’re looking for a modern, happy kitchen, we suggest pairing black countertops and stainless steel appliances with a dose of fiery orange on one wall or on your cabinets.
Not so mellow yellow
If you love to entertain in your kitchen we suggest a bright and cheerful lemon yellow. When paired with rich dark wood, yellow gives off a sunny and radiant feel to your space, making it the room people will choose to hang out in. Yellow also works nicely with stainless steal appliances and grey décor.
And of course, let’s not forget the colour that is often used in restaurants because it is an appetite stimulant. Red is a bold and bright colour yet when paired with earthy tones and stainless steel appliance, it can transform a boring kitchen into a sleek modern affair without it being too in-your-face.
Never go wrong with neutral
If you’re hesitant committing to one of the bolder colours above, we recommend you paint your kitchen a neutral tone and get your dose of colour with playful décor.
With so many colours to choose from, it’s important to do your homework and find out what works best for your space and lifestyle.
