The kitchen is often decorated in neutral colors. Appliances are neutral. The furniture is also neutral. And that’s totally fine if a neutral color scheme works for you but, if you want to add more color, you have to be a bit creative. Making your kitchen colorful is not the easiest of tasks but it’s doable nonetheless. Here’s how you can do it without a major kitchen makeover:
Add Color in Unexpected Places
Fresh paint changes the aspect of any room but painting the walls of your kitchen can take a lot of time. However, there are other ways to add fresh colorful paint without the effort required by painting the walls. Have you ever considered painting only the ceiling? Or maybe the kitchen island? These painting projects don’t take a lot of time but the results can be very nice. Think about pastels or soft colors if your kitchen is mainly white. Pale aqua or mint, butter yellow, and soft blue are all nice color choices. Of course, if you want to, you can opt for bold colors instead. Olive green or poppy red are amazing choices.
Update Your Dinnerware
Buying neutral dinnerware is practical, right? After all, it goes with everything. However, neutral dinnerware is boring and predictable so opt for options that are more vibrant. This will add an unexpected but pleasant surprise for your guests and it will make the kitchen look warmer and more inviting. When you buy a new set of dishes, make sure you opt for a color that matches your kitchen linen or an accent color from a room nearby. Most importantly – always keep colorful dinnerware on display.
Paint Your Furniture
Painting the cabinets is one of the easiest ways to add color to your kitchen. You can paint the cabinets in a single color or you can create nice floral designs. The options are unlimited and you can personalize your furniture how you want.
Add Colorful Decorations
You have plenty of options here as well. You can make DIY kitchen decorations or you can add color by filling a kitchen cart with colorful items. If you’re not crafty, you can buy colorful and practical kitchen decorations such as fruit bowls or flower vases. Anything works, really.
Add a Colorful Rug
Rugs are not very popular in the kitchen but doing something unexpected can have the best results. If you’re worried about moisture, there are some options that actually work very well in the kitchen. Alternatively, you can opt for an area rug you can place far away from the sink.
Mix Matched Chair
You can revive your kitchen by mixing and matching your chairs. You can choose bold vibrant colors or a pastel color scheme. Either way, your kitchen will look completely different without too much effort.
Ditch the neutral blinds and replace them with colorful curtains. Such a simple modification can create an entirely different environment. And think about all the options – you can choose bold colors, pastels, modern prints, floral prints – pretty much anything that can help you achieve the vibe you’re going for.
