The kitchen h slowly made its way up into the list of spaces that serve as social areas. It’s no longer a dull and boring space and solely focuses on functionality. It’s why adding a few touches of bright color to the room is an excellent idea. Yellow, is an awesome option. Bold and cheerful, yellow is the ideal accent color to the kitchen with lots of wonderful ways on contributing to the overall décor and ambiance.
Depending on the style you’ve chosen for the kitchen, several different shades of yellow can be used. A traditional kitchen can feature this type of soft, almost pastel yellow that you can use on the furniture or on the walls.
And since we mentioned the yellow and grey combination, let’s explore more options that include these two colors. They complement each other so the result is a balanced look. It’s up to you to decide the intensity of these colors and the amounts in which to use them.
Paint the kitchen walls grey so the stainless steel appliances can blend in and opt for yellow as a color for the lower cabinets. The contrast will be strong but balanced.
It’s also possible to only use a few hints of yellow in a neutral kitchen. For example, a portion of the backsplash can be yellow, you can have one yellow chair in the room and a smal yelow vase casually placed on a shelf.
Yellow also pairs well with white and since the kitchen is a space that should always look bright and clean and fresh, the combination is perfect. Still, the need for something toned down yet warm and simple becomes apparent so consider natural wood accents.
Yellow looks even brighter and more cheerful when surrounded by white. Let these two be the main colors you use in the kitchen but also add a few raw and organic details such as a wooden countertop or a metallic pendant lamp.
If you want, you can come up with a few more elaborate combinations that include yellow. For example. Use it in combination with white, a few hints of blue and some metallic accents.
Here’s a great and really simple idea: paint the kitchen ceiling yellow. It will brighten the whole room, especially if the walls stay white.
