Kitchen Colors That Look Great Together

Posted on: November 21, 2011


If you’re building a new home, close your eyes and picture your dream kitchen. What colors do you see? If you want to remodel, how can you make your kitchen better? The color scheme of your kitchen significantly affects the space, whether you choose a black and white color scheme or a more colorful appearance.

Kitchen Color Schemes That Work Well

If you don’t know where to start with your kitchen design, why not start with the color scheme? Here’s a list of kitchen colors ideas to get you started:

Black and white – contemporary, sleek appearance

Gray/silver and white – sleek, modern look


Black and blue – visual interest; appealing for all kinds of styles

Dark brown and tan – refined, elegant look

Blue and white – depending on the shade, provides a great traditional country look or a touch of modernity

Red and black – modern appearance

Kitchen Color Tips

There are indeed many colors that look good together in the kitchen. However, keep in mind there are many things to consider when it comes to kitchen color schemes!

Don’t go too dark – if you want black floors and walls, go for it; just be sure to offset it with lighter colored cabinets and countertops. On the other hand, use dark accents to break up light, bright spaces.

Don’t go overboard with the pattern – while pattern in colors is ideal, we all know too much of something can have negative effects sometimes. Make sure you balance pattern with plain textures or non-patterned surfaces.

Bright colors intensify the space – think about how you want your kitchen to look. Do you want it to make a statement or do you prefer a trendier, modern appearance? Bright, bold colors, particularly when used on the walls, will intensify the space!
