by on January 20, 2016

Cooking certainly requires much skill and precision. With the amount of effort and time involved, it can also get quite exhausting. With the right ambiance in your kitchen however, much of this stress can be relieved. A welcoming environment can put you at ease, while you go about your kitchen chores.

Having the right color scheme for your kitchen can go a long way in creating an air of warmth and comfort. You can also experiment with contrasts and combinations in order to accommodate the plethora of appliances and furnishings in a kitchen. Take a look at some interesting color schemes to pick the right one for your kitchen.

  • All – White Kitchen

    An all-white kitchen theme is quite popular among modern homeowners.  Painting the walls white brightens the environment and produces an airy effect. To avoid monotony, you can simply add some relief in the form of bright patterns for countertops and backsplashes. This theme is especially suitable for small kitchens with a lack of space.

  • Neutral Themes

    Most individuals may go with a neutral theme for their kitchen with colors such as grey and beige. Although these may seem drab, with a clever combination of furnishings, you can create a chic look. Wooden cabinets and furniture go well with this theme.

  • Shades of Blue

    Another great color to enhance the ambiance and appeal of your kitchen is blue. You can use lighter shades to create a calm and refreshing feel for your kitchen. Although dark or navy blue is considered to be a bold choice, you can balance it with white or neutral-colored cabinets, counter-tops, and wall accents.

  • Yellow Warmth

    As cooking is often associated with warmth, many individuals may prefer a similar feel for their kitchen. Yellow is one color that can be vivid, as well as soothing. Use different hues to get the right amount of brightness for your kitchen. Pair it with white or beige furnishings to avoid an overwhelming effect.

  • Green Allure

    Although slightly unconventional, green can make for a charming color scheme for your kitchen. Pick lighter shades to create a garden-like aura for your kitchen. Complement it with wooden furniture and accents to complete the natural feel. Darker and more intense shades can be used for back-splashes and small counters.


Make sure that the theme you pick suits the lighting scheme and size of your kitchen. Most importantly, use a color scheme that will enhance your kitchen experience by improving your mood and comfort.
