While searching around for kitchen colour ideas for our latest flip, I came across this awesome aqua and brown kitchen. Usually when you think blue kitchen paint you picture a dusty grey blue or a very traditional navy shade (or at least I do). But I absolutely love using this lighter and more vibrant hue to brighten up the space. We have similar dark wood cabinets with a cool ashy undertone. I knew it would be hard to find the perfect shade to coordinate with it, but I may just play copycat and use the bright blue color from the photo. I recently read an article outlining kitchen colour schemes 10 of the best, and the designer who wrote it said that different plays on a classic blue shade are becoming very "in." That was enough to sell me, and I am currently hunting for the perfect swatch to match the photo.
I was struggling to pick out the perfect color for my new kitchen, but after looking at pictures of how others designed their room I found the perfect plan. I found that popular kitchen colour ideas are dark brown cabinets with a white or tan paint on the walls. Paired with these colors is multicolored tiled backsplashes that blend the shades to create the perfect look. When selecting the best kitchen paint colors with dark cabinets, I learned to make sure to choose shades that are lighter than the cabinets, to not take away from their beauty. Dark brown or black cabinets look amazing next to tan, white, gray, or light blue colored walls. Other popular kitchen cabinet colors are white or light green paint, or cedar, walnut or oak stain.
I am not a very trendy person nor do I want my home to look like a cookie cutter replica of every house on the street, which is why I am so attracted to the rich mustard yellow kitchen colour ideas the designers used in this awesome Spanish inspired home. I love everything about the kitchen ideas they used for this space, from the tall vaulted ceilings with rustic wood beams to the funky artwork hung on the walls (check out that bull above the French doors!) and everything in between. While our current home is certainly not this large, I would like to use this particular space as inspiration for our new kitchen design. We are actually in the process of refinishing our cabinets in a similar shade of stain, so if we use these yellow kitchen wall colors we are already halfway to creating a pretty good replica.
I am thinking that we need some new kitchen colour ideas to make this room a bit less drab. When we first remodeled the space, I loved the idea of using trendy gray kitchen paint ideas to coordinate with the island and ashy undertones of the wood floors and beams. However, after living with it for awhile, I feel like it is not "us" and lacks personality. I would much prefer a bit more vibrancy and color to offset the neutral foundation. After browsing collections of the most popular kitchen colors 2019, I have still not found the perfect shade. We think we want to use a subtle moss green shade on the walls to offset the ship lap ceiling and rustic wood beams.
As an interior designer, I see many clients struggle to finds the perfect kitchen colour ideas when remodeling. Because of this I wanted to provide help to those that are planning to renovate a kitchen. Some of the most popular kitchen wall colour ideas this year are beige, blue, green, or grey. You can also highlight these colors in decor on the counters, light fixtures, or fabric on chairs. Additionally, most think the cabinets and countertops need to be the same. However, it is becoming prominent to mix and match. The best kitchen colors to do this with are dark tones, like brown or black, with lighter shades, often white, beige, or light blue. This kitchen is the perfect example of pairing multiple colors throughout.
My company and I love to post photos of our work that features unique twists on commonly asked questions like how to narrow down kitchen colour ideas or which shade of cabinetry should I choose for my home. We certainly understand the challenges homeowners face trying to plan out a remodel on their own, especially because kitchen design 2019 is just brimming with awesome new products, trends, and color palettes to choose from. Our advice is always to stick with the basics when choosing color palettes for the major elements of your kitchen (cabinetry, flooring, sometimes paint). This allows you to play around with color and style with artwork and decorative accents that are easy to swap out if you grow tired of them.
