While there is nothing more clean and elegant than an all-white kitchen, adding a splash of color in the right places can bring some newfound energy and life to your home. Here are four ways you can add color to your kitchen without disrupting its white design.
1. Cabinets and Countertops
To update a modern and minimalist kitchen, add bright-colored doors to upper cabinets or get colored countertops. This will give emphasis to the work zones in your space. You can also go with a kitchen island in a dark finish, like stained wood, to give contrast to an otherwise all-white backdrop.
2. Tile Backsplash
A tile backsplash is a popular choice that comes in a broad range of materials, colors and textures. Do not shy away from soft hues like sky blues and blue-grays or even bold shades like forest greens and sunny yellows. A teal backsplash is another stunning option, adding a pop of color between white cabinets while maintaining a sense of calmness in the room.
3. Feature Walls
A feature wall can add personality to your cooking and dining area through texture and contrast. It is like defining a space from the rest of the home. A minimally patterned wallpaper will always look sophisticated and not distract from other accessories in the kitchen. You can also use family photos, framed paintings or children’s artwork to personalize the feature wall. Do not forget about the ceiling too. You want to infuse a color scheme that draws the eye up.
If you are renovating your kitchen completely, consider incorporating colored appliances. A refrigerator in baby pink or mint green can bring a retro element that you might want. You can also mix metal accents like bronze and copper with traditional wood cabinets to give your space a chic and modern feel.
