Color is everywhere—in our homes, offices, and the surrounding world. According to many scientists, color can actually affect us on a deep subconscious level.
It can transcend beyond the visual spectrum and influence our moods, feelings, and emotions.
When it comes to our own homes, we have much power over what kind of color and energy we want to spend our time with.
With the spring season fully in swing, it’s a great time to take on a DIY project and repaint your kitchen with the power of color in mind.
But what kitchen paint colors should you consider? There are so many different angles you could approach this project from.
Read on, and we’ll walk you through the kitchen paint color trends you should know about.
Exciting Color Pairings
Choosing two varied colors and pairing them in your kitchen can create an amazing look.
For example, the colors green and brown can work together well in conjunction.
A kitchen with sage green walls and wood floors or cabinets can help to create a visually interesting contrast. The overall effect can almost be kind of ethereal if combined with outside lighting and a minimalist approach to the kitchen space.
There are plenty of other striking color combinations that can make a kitchen pop.
White plus red is a popular one, which may remind you of the early 00s music duo The White Stripes. Pairing stunning red walls with white counters or doors can help to create a very striking, modern feel.
You’ll need to explore more yourself and decide which color combinations excite you the most. Which pairings offer exciting new feelings? Blue and black? Brown and gray?
There are so many different possibilities that you can explore.
Jewel tones, like deep brown counters with blue backsplashes, can help to create a clean and fresh kitchen atmosphere.
Warm, Earth Tone Accents
If there’s one color fad that it seems all trendsetters are geared towards this year, it’s a move towards warmer tones and colors. It’s been a slow move in the trend towards these warmer colors over the past few years.
Tones that are deep, rich and warm seem set to take over kitchens across the country in this coming year. ‘Earthy’ tones, like warm greens, browns, oranges, and reds, are taking over with consumers and designers.
These colors aren’t necessarily covering full walls in people’s homes.
But they are becoming a go-to for accents, cabinetries, and shelving. These bold colors stand out, meaning they need to cover less space or area to make such an impression.
It’s a gorgeous way to establish the atmosphere of a space without completely committing to a bold coloring choice. It’s kind of a perfect compromise.
Often these colors are being used on cabinets and similar objects. Then these cabinets are being surrounded by plain white walls or generally unremarkable colors. This helps to have the cabinets themselves stand out while keeping the mood of the room more neutral.
Neutral Walls Are Here to Stay
When it comes to walls of the home and kitchen, it doesn’t seem like there’s much change to come in the coming years.
Neutral paint colors are going to continue to dominate as the wall color of choice in 2019.
This trend certainly isn’t going to pass anytime in the near future. More people than ever are choosing to use whites, light grays, and other such neutral colors for the largest areas of their kitchen.
Those bolder colors are being saved for accents or fabrics and that is where they will stay. Light gray is among the most common color for a 2019 kitchen.
Two of the most popular shades of the color include Sherwin Williams Repose Gray and Benjamin Moore Gray Owl. Builders, designers, and consumers all love these shades.
If you’re unsure of what neutral shade is best for your kitchen, it’s always a good idea to talk to a professional.
There are many professional painting services that can help guide you to the very best choice for your kitchen.
Stand out with Light Pinks
While most people are opting in for neutral walls, there are a few brave trendsetters who are branching out to something more exciting.
If you want to create a soothing space to cook in, there couldn’t be a better fad to hop on with than soft pink palettes.
This may feel like an unusual choice at first, but if you spend a little time with the color you might be surprised at how quickly you take to it.
Pink walls in the kitchen provide a soothing and comforting atmosphere that can actually help to relax your body.
It doesn’t have to be hot pink either. Shades of peach, for example, provide the same calming atmosphere without the punctuation of a capital-p Pink.
You can also make the compromise we stated above and use this calming color to accent your more neutral-leaning kitchen.
While pink might not be your initial choice for kitchen coloring, you’ll be surprised at just how much it can give your cooking space new life.
