We spend plenty of time in our kitchens preparing meals and often socializing. The kitchen is often overlooked when it comes to color but it deserves to be recognized. Here are some simple ways to add color to your kitchen without spending a lot of money. Try some of these and everyone will notice the difference.
Step 1: Dress up the table of an eat-in kitchen by adding a table runner, new placemats, or colorful new dishes. Mix and match these with existing dishware to add some pizzazz to the color scheme.
Step 2: Cabinets are a major component of the kitchen so use them to give color to the space. Remove cabinet doors and paint the interior of cabinets a bright color.
Step 3: In some kitchens, wood tones dominate. Update a wood floor, tabletop, or cabinets using a color tinted stain. You will maintain the beautiful grain of the wood while adding a new shade.
Step 4: When kitchen appliances need replacing, explore color choices beyond white or almond. There are plenty of hues designed to liven up the kitchen.
Step 5: If you have trouble finding colors that look nice together, do not worry. Selecting a monochromatic color scheme will work well. Choose an attractive tone and layer it throughout the kitchen. Create some visual variety by adding various textures.
Step 6: Update the kitchen counters or island by selecting a new color of solid-surface countertop. For an eco-friendly option, look for composites made from recycled materials. When glass is used, the counter features flecks of attractive color.
Step 7: Add colorful seat cushions to kitchen chairs or stools or reupholster this seating with fabric that is water and stain repellent.
Step 8: Paint storage boxes a bright color and put them on kitchen shelves and in the pantry.
Step 9: Add some artwork or stencils to kitchen walls, choosing pieces with colors that complement the rest of the kitchen.
