Kitchens are undeniably the heart of the home, so you want it to look its best. And the start of a brand new year is the perfect reason to reinvent and refresh the color scheme of this dynamic space!
Even if you aren’t planning on completely remodeling your kitchen, these 7 kitchen color trends will bring your kitchen into the new year.
Gray Is the New White
Updating your cabinets with a new color is a great DIY project for the winter. So what’s the new trendy color for cabinets? While it’s traditionally white, gray is quickly stealing the top spot. Give your kitchen a soft and cozy feel with warm grays paired with metal hardware. Not a DIY kind of person? Start fresh with brand new cabinets from Masterbrand. They’re one of the largest and most trusted cabinet manufacturers in North America.
The Classic Black and White Palette
While gray may be the new white, the classic black and white combination will never die. Why? It’s all about the high contrast of colors. The black and white palette is also a great mixture of modern and rustic. Try updating your cabinets with a fresh white paint and installing a sleek black countertop for a sophisticated look. Light hardwood floors can create that rustic appearance while keeping the elegance of the classic black and white palette. Check out these bright white Omega cabinets paired with a sleek black countertop for great inspiration.
Bold is Beautiful with a Pop of Color
If you’re not looking to update your cabinets or countertops but think there’s that “wow factor” missing from your kitchen, try making a bold statement with a colorful backsplash. If you have gray or white cabinets and a neutral countertop, adding a pop of color like a bright green or even a navy blue will create a focal point. This gorgeous blue backsplash is paired with warm Omega cabinets to create a pop of color in this sophisticated kitchen.
Warming Yellows and Reds
If you’re not into bright tones but want to add an element of color to your kitchen, warming hues are best. Create a comforting and appetite stimulating kitchen with warm yellows and reds. The combination is subtle but makes all the difference. For instance, pairing a two-tone red backsplash with light wood cabinets like these from Kitchen Craft adds a subtle pop of color while creating a relaxing feel in the kitchen.
Fresh New Hues
Pantone recently announced ten new color palettes for 2017, which mixes vitality, relaxation and the great outdoors. These top ten colors which include, Primrose Yellow, Pale Dogwood, Hazelnut, Island Paradise, Kale, and more are reminiscent of the hues that surround us in nature which “evokes a spectrum of emotion and feeling”, according to Leatrice Eisemen, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.
White on White
With new colors coming into the market, white will always be a top favorite. You can never go wrong with layering white on white. White backsplashes paired with white cabinets and countertops can create a clean, fresh and trendy look for your kitchen. This custom kitchen from Omega Cabinetry creates a clean, sheen appearance that will never go out of style.
By far, the most popular and daring recent kitchen color trend is the combination of two-tone cabinets. They’re popping up everywhere in home design magazines and blogs. Mixing and matching cabinet hues allows you to use a bolder color in your kitchen without overwhelming the room. These Omega-Dynasty cabinets pair a classic white with a pop of a gray/blue. Another way to incorporate two-tone cabinets in your kitchen is to have either the tops or the bottoms in a totally different neutral color. In other words, if you know you want navy blue bottoms then stick to white/grey/wood tone on the uppers. Balance is key in this trend.
