Adding Color to a Kitchen

Kitchens are often white or or otherwise monochromatic. There are ways to add color to your kitchen without making it into a big painting project. Painted accent areas, new towels, rugs, curtains, live plants, and other decorative touches can help a lot. This is a page about adding color to a kitchen.

Everything in my kitchen is white, cabinets, walls, and appliances. The counter tops are laminated grey and beige. I also have beige ceramic tile with a few red-brownish tiles blended in. I need some ideas how to make my kitchen more colourful.

Great bones - just need color! Grey is a neutral. Brown is warm; so choose 3 colors you love and repeat them 3 times. Easiest and cheapest: 1) Paint 2) accent pieces 3) towels & rugs. I recently "upgraded" my kitchen look for under $100 at Shopko with all their coordinating stuff.

I think that your color scheme sounds great, but it probably now, needs some punch. Almost any color would work, but because of the reddish brown accents in the tile.


I think that might be a good way to go. Try using reds with brown undertones, and some black accents would really punch up the whites, too. Also try some green plants, fresh or faux, to add some life to the area. It sounds beautiful!

My kitchen is white with mauve counter tops, oak cabinets, and white appliances. I would like some color to brighten it up and make it more cheery. Can you help me? The kitchen joins the living room which also has mauve carpet and curtains. I am just tired of plain mauve and white and need a pick me up color. Thank you.

The color mauve pairs well with cornflower blue, light pinks, periwinkle, blue, mossy green and light sage green. Any of these color would really add to your kitchen and brighten it up.
