Paint Colors for the Kitchen – Inspired Selections for the Heart of the Home

Today’s kitchens, with their open floor plans and amenities designed for modern living, are the heart of every home. One of the few places where utility and entertainment meet, it’s no wonder homeowners want their kitchens to take center stage.

Catchlight Painting has painted hundreds of kitchens over the years, each one a distinct reflection of the taste and personality of the homeowner. While some have chosen paint colors for their kitchen that are neutral tones, others have taken a more inventive approach, including paint color schemes that are bold, even vibrant.

Paint Colors for the Kitchen – It’s Ok to Be Different 

The popularity of cooler, more subdued paint colors for the kitchen started in the 1990s and continues today. Whites, grays, and beiges feel clean and uncluttered and allow a homeowner any number of options for accessorizing the room. However, within the last decade or so, interior designers, kitchen cabinet painters, and homeowners alike have been making bolder, more inspired color choices regarding paint colors for the kitchen. 

Paint Colors for the Kitchen  – Vibrant Refinement 

At Catchlight, we love bold color choices; they add energy to any room, but particularly the kitchen:

This stunning blue paint from Farrow and Ball highlights the kitchen island and cabinetry, balances the surrounding warm whites with a pop of color, and creates a dynamic presentation in the kitchen. 

Fully committing to this vibrant, inspired Rembrandt Red by Fine Paints of Europe was a decision our clients did not regret. In this beautiful brownstone, there is a flawless balance of deep dark woods, stainless steel appliances, and brilliant red cabinetry. It is the perfect example of the power of bold paint colors for the kitchen. 

Let Your Personality Be Present

Most homeowners are apprehensive about selecting paint colors for the kitchen; it’s a years-long commitment in a room where much of everyday living is done. We often recommend they think through the kind of ambiance they want to create, how their kitchen will be used, the color(s) of adjacent rooms, and their tolerance for living with any specific color for a period of time.

Are you feeling a “spark” of inspiration for forest green cabinetry or a royal blue backsplash? Don’t ignore it! Color specialists and interior painting contractors will help guide you to palettes that are appropriate for the space and go beyond what you could have imagined.
