17 Inspiring Kitchen Color Schemes

Kitchen Color Schemes – A bright, cheery and airy kitchen can lift one’s mood and inspire us to create magic with our hands. Playing around with the color scheme in the kitchen can dramatically change its look. To achieve a great look you do not have to paint the entire kitchen in some bold color; a minor splash of color here and there can also change the look of the room for the better.

Those who are skeptical of adding too much color to their kitchens can for the meantime start with this idea where the white kitchen has the soffit painted in a vibrant red. Although not much color has been used, still this tiny strip of color is eye-catching and provides a nice contrast to the overall white décor of the place.

2. Black and orange color scheme

The grey walls and the brownish backsplash provide a perfect foil to the flaming orange cabinets. The dining set in steel and gray color matches the wall perfectly.

3. Bold blue accent wall

Electric blue walls are the main highlight of this kitchen. However to prevent the room from turning into a sea of blue, one of the wall has been given a different color scheme. The white tiles on the floor, the cream cabinets and the white countertop in their own way contribute to moderate the bluishness of the room.

4. Rustic color scheme

This kitchen seems clearly inspired by a rustic kitchen. The island in the center in a cream and rust combination has a lovely old-world charm about it. A brown vintage door, the brightly colored chair and table set, chimney with copper lining all add their individual colors to the room. The glass front cabinet displays multi colored crockery items which further contributes to the overall color scheme.

5. Yellow color scheme

This is one sunny room where it seems the sun has set up permanent residence. Yellow is an eye-catching color and the designer instead of painting the walls yellow has innovatively colored the cabinets and the drawers in a lovely lime yellow color. The walls and the ceilings painted in a light color blend in with the overall color scheme and further accentuate the yellow color of the cabinets.

6. Vibrant color scheme

A broad range of color strokes are at work here right from warm gold to lime green to earthy browns which makes it appear that a color bubble has burst in this vibrant kitchen.

The chairs in different colors and a wall painted in warm red color add additional colors to the room.

7. Gold color scheme

This contemporary kitchen seems suffused in liquid gold so strong is the color scheme. In a sea of maple gold the first thing that one notices is the backsplash in green mosaic tiles.
