Kitchen Color Schemes = Love Forever

Are you looking to remodel your kitchen or just wrapp it fresh, but don’t know what colour to choose? Take a look at these 13 ideas, that will make your life so much easier…or not!

1. Dove Gray + Maple Gold + Mixed Metals

Warm dove gray and gold-toned maple abound in this modern farmhouse kitchen. Light maple floors and rustic wood beams offer natural texture that contrasts with a sleek subwaytile backsplash and swirled marble countertops. Aged brass hardware pops against simple shaker style gray cabinets . Dual pendants with copper shades introduce another metal to the mix.

2. Blonde Wood + White + Black

Classic yet modern, this timeless kitchen sets off its elegant black cabinets and bold patterned floor tile, with a warm wood island. The distressed blonde wood finish anchors the space and grounds the high-contrast kitchen color scheme. White-tiled walls and white marble countertops create continuity throughout. Brass cabinet hardware and fixtures add shine that brightens the dark cabinet color.

3. Muted Sage Green + Warm White + Natural Wood

Pale sage green cabinets add a casual, calming feel to this kitchen. A white tile backsplash is a quiet complement to the cabinet color, but it’s unique herringbone pattern gives it a beautiful personality. The natural wood finish on floors and the island cabinetry introduce warmth and texture.

4. Navy Blue + Gold + Gray

Navy blue and gold make a bright and bold kitchen color combination. The perfectly preppy kitchen color scheme looks striking when blue is used on an island or base cabinetry and gold sparkles as hardware and fixtures. A gray tile backsplash sets a subtle stage for the colorful kitchen island, while framed artwork pulls the kitchen color scheme together.

5. Citron + Stainless Steel + Black

Are you bold to choose this high-energy citron color that makes a statement in this kitchen color scheme. Here, subway-tiled walls showcasing the electric hue add a retro feel. Lower cabinets and appliances in stainless steel for a sleek, contemporary look, while black stone countertops anchor the room. The gray-painted ceiling features a high sheen that mimics the shine of stainless-steel surfaces.

6. Icy Green + White + Copper

Some kitchen color schemes aren’t meant to stand out. Pairing pastel tones with white creates a bright, airy kitchen vibe that feels calm and inviting. Icy-green cabinets are just a few shades off the cool white of metal barstools, a retro-style white refrigerator, and a subway tile backsplash. Black grout lines between tiles, matte dark copper wall sconces and hardware add punch to the light color palette.

7. Orange + Black + Gray

Another bold but bright choice, this contemporary kitchen color scheme partners blaze-orange cabinets with a warm gray island. Dark-stained wood countertops and light-washed ceiling beams bring in a natural feel that contrasts with more modern elements. Large windows let in plentiful light that reflects off the cabinetry’s shiny finish.

8. Glacier Blue + White + Dove Gray

This large kitchen is full of light thanks to its bright kitchen island. Natural light paired with a white plank ceiling and cabinetry help make the space feel more open. A white marble slab creates strong contrast with the glacier-blue island paint color. Shiny silver metal pulls on the cabinets and drawers add shine to the room. Added sparkle comes from the dove gray backsplash tiles, while reddish-brown floors keep the room grounded and add warmth to the space.

9. White + Olive Green + Brown

You might not expect a green refrigerator to look good, but in an all-white kitchen, it becomes the focal point of the room. The key to incorporating a colorful kitchen appliance is to make sure the rest of the room provides a quiet backdrop. Brown countertops and shelves provide a neutral transition from striking white to saturated green.

10. Spring Green + White + Dark Brown

The contrast between this modern cabinet paint color and worn-in wood makes this one-of-a-kind kitchen work. The industrial-yet-rugged look is amplified with simple metal pendants, steel stools, and bright green paint on the cabinetry. The amount of natural light in this room prevents the dark wood from leaving the kitchen feeling like a cave. White paneled walls and ceiling also help to create a brightness that makes the kitchen look bigger.

11. Dove Gray + Chocolate Brown

Soothing shades of gray and milky chocolate brown, give this traditional kitchen a natural vibe that’s enhanced by the honey-tone hardwood floor. The color on the kitchen tile has a slight hint of blue to give it some interest. The cabinet hardware and barstools add extra dashes of glamour.

12. White + Violet + Charcoal

Expansive windows drench this cool-hue kitchen with sunlight, keeping it from becoming a dreary, cavernous space. Instead, the purple island and charcoal tile backsplash mingle happily with white, stainless steel, and natural wood to create a room with a fresh attitude. Gold accents add sparkle throughout.

13. Almond Beige + Baby Blue + White

Warm gray cabinets, white countertops, and sky-blue subway tiles create a kitchen color scheme that’s restful and serene. Painting the cabinet interiors blue carries the hue nearly up to the ceiling and offers a pretty backdrop for your favorite dishes. Blue bucket accent chairs are a cheerful presence in the dining area.
