If you are going for a classic, clean look, then white is the right color for your kitchen. You can always add pops of colors through decorative bowls and utensil holders, fixtures, appliances, hand towels, and even plants. 

Cream or Light Taupe 

Cream and lighter taupe colors are a good substitute if you think that white isn’t a good fit for your kitchen. These colors are still light enough to give your kitchen the same clean look as white does but with just a hint to color. Creams and lighter taupes are also good if you decide to go for a bold accent wall as these colors often complement many bolder shades. 


Are you going to a more contemporary look for your kitchen? If so, then grey just might be the color for you. Grey will instantly give your kitchen a sophisticated look. Try pairing the grey with brass figures and other neutral colors. 



Often times, people will shy away from brown colors in their homes because they can make a room feel dark and small. It doesn’t have to be that way in your kitchen. If you want a warm, cozy atmosphere in your kitchen, brown might be the color for you. Try natural wood colors, or even a taupe paired natural wood finished cabinets. These colors and combinations can give your kitchen a comfortable, rustic feel.

Light Blues or Turquoise 

If you are looking for your kitchen to be a calming room, light blues or light turquoises are the way to go. Pair these colors with a cream or pastel color. Try adding blues or turquoises as a part of your backsplash or even as the color of your cabinets. 


Yellow is known for bringing happiness and sunshine. It is also a great color to pick for your kitchen if you want a brighter room. Add yellow as an accent wall or as a pop of color on your cabinets to give your kitchen a bright, fresh atmosphere. 



Green is a good, unique color if you want your kitchen to be the fun room in your house. Different shades will give you a retro, an invigorating, and even a calming effect to your room. Lighter green walls with natural wood finished cabinets can give you kitchen a fresh, garden-like feel. 


If you are adventurous in the kitchen, then red might be a good color for you. A red accent wall paired with a more subtle shade will give your kitchen a bold pop of color. If you are in love with red but think that an accent wall is too much, paint your kitchen a subtle color like cream or taupe and put red accents throughout the room. By doing this, you still get your bold red colors while still being subtle.  


Another bold color for your kitchen is eggplant. This deep purple color is very youthful and is best added as an accent. Eggplant also pairs well with cream and off-white colors to balance it out and make it pop. If you are going for a more unique color, eggplant is the one for you!


Going for a sleek, modern look in your kitchen? Try using the color black. While this color might not be your go-to color in your house, it is a great way to give your kitchen a modern makeover. You don’t even need to use black as a wall color. Black countertops or appliances paired with cream walls and stainless-steel fixtures will give your kitchen a contemporary look you are going for. 


With all of these options, and so much more, it can be really hard to pick just one color. If you can’t decide which color you like best, pick several! Pick colors that complement one another and paint your cabinets, walls and trims these colors. This will give your kitchen a fresh, fun, youthful feeling and will definitely be a conversation starter at your next party!
