10 most featured kitchens colours around the world this year
Warm neutrals, pretty pinks, moody blues and monochromatic black and white. K!tchn has played around with plenty of kitchen colours in 2016, so it’s about time we ranked them all. Some are brand new, others are old favourites. Either way, interior designers and homeowners alike love them.
#10 Technicolour stripes
A bold choice for a bold person. Executed with digital precision this colour combination should be applied with a light hand as an accent in cupboard interiors or on glass backsplashes.
#9 Blue green
If you hadn’t already heard, the 1990’s are making a big comeback and the colours are coming back too. Blue green, when done in bold colour trends like teal, is a sumptuous and velvety option for the walls (and looks great with gold décor).
#8 Pale pink
If you love white, but want character, select a shade of pink that is barely there. Apply it to areas like your backsplash, or on traditional styles of wooden cabinets.
#7 Pastel yellow
Bring the sunshine inside with this shade. This yellow is a buttery and chipper shade that works well as an accent colour on dining textiles, cabinets or slathered on the walls.
#6 Grey blue
Moody blues make us think of the seaside. When windswept and salt stained exteriors call out to you, reflect that indoors by applying grey blue liberally to your preferred surface: the walls, ceiling and floor are all candidates.
#5 Black and white
This monochromatic scheme is a long-time favourite of designers and homeowners. Its timeless charm adds a sense of sophistication in any kitchen, regardless of how it’s applied.
#4 Greyish green
Along with the sinks and rustic woods, the farmhouse kitchen trend remains and with it brings this approachable and homey shade of green. To complete the look, pair it with Wellingtons, tin pots of flowers and rough floorboards.
For those of us who love the neutral character of a black and white kitchen, but want to add character (and reduce the sterility), grey is an outstanding option. Deep hues are daring and add edginess. Pale grey is soft and inviting.
#2 Tinted white
Like a well-tailored suit, white kitchens will never go out of style. In 2016 however, it’s been updated with yellow tints to add mellow warmth and liveability.
#1 Your favourite colour
Ultimately your kitchen should reflect who you are. If you aren’t sold on what’s happening in the style sites, who cares? Pick the kitchen colour that speaks to your lifestyle.
