Home Remodeling Trends: Colors to Freshen Up Your Kitchen

A kitchen remodel is not something to be planned hastily. So before you even browse a showroom or make an appointment with a professional for kitchen design in Bethesda or Annapolis, here are some “colorful” tips to help you create the kitchen space you’ve always wanted.

Add Some Color to Your Kitchen

Why inject color into your kitchen? Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute® and one of the premier color experts in the country, says the kitchen is a key place for color. “It’s the place where people gather, so it’s apt to have some mixing and matching of colors to create high energy,” she explains.

Get into the Trend: Refreshing Colors

Good Housekeeping recommends playing with new colors to give life to your otherwise dull kitchen. Some colors you can try are:

  • Yellow. This color adds that element of surprise to classic cabinets and floral wallpapers. Aside from the fact that yellow is the “happy color,” it also exudes positivity and freshness. If you have limited kitchen space, the vivid tone of sunflower yellow will inject warmth and energy.
  • Green. From country green to lime and mint, this color has so many hues to choose from. Country green adds just the right amount of freshness to a dull kitchen. Lime green makes white cabinetry and marble countertops pop. Lighter shades of green add youthfulness and whimsy.
  • Warm colors. Warm colors like apricot, yellows and reds are great for kitchens because they’re “comforting and appetite stimulators,” explains Eiseman, who has a background in psychology as well as interior design.
  • Bold colors. For kitchens with minimal wall space, a splash of bold color such as copper or gold will make a statement without overpowering the room.
