Your kitchen’s square footage is another important factor to consider when choosing a color palette. If the space is small, opt for paler hues for cabinets, walls, and countertops. Shades of white, bone, or cream reflect light and help a tiny kitchen feel brighter and more spacious. Neutrals are also a great choice for kitchens that open up to other rooms, notes Pelley. “If your kitchen is part of a great room design, remember that any new paint will need to work with the color schemes in those rooms, too.”

Designer Elizabeth Swartz, ASID, drew color inspiration for her own kitchen (that gorgeous yellow paint is California Paint’s CAL #7263M, Sunspot) from Stangl Pottery’s Fruit Pattern. “My aunt had this for her everyday china when I was a kid,” says Swartz, “and I have great memories of wonderful family dinners with loads of cousins. I found a piece in an antique shop, started collecting it and built my kitchen color scheme around it.” What favorite family objects make you happy? Look to them for a kitchen color that will keep you smiling.

Rather than committing to a single color scheme, a neutral kitchen lets you sample the rainbow. One option is to choose coordinating window treatments and chair cushions to liven up the space, says Johnson. An eye-catching poster, multihued area rug, or a collection of pottery displayed on a shelf all add personality to your kitchen and are easy to change when you’re ready for something new. Paint is another low-cost way to incorporate a pop or two of color into a neutral room. You can grab a brush and paint your kitchen chairs or counter stools, or add a bright hue to the interior of a glass cabinet. Ready for something bigger? Consider rolling a bold shade on a single wall to create lively contrast in an otherwise single-color space.

‘‘There are no bad colors, just bad color combinations,” said one of my interior design mentors many years ago. At first I disagreed with him, since there’s a certain shade of brown-mustard yellow that I definitely wouldn’t want slathered all over my walls. But after I chewed on his statement for a bit, I realized that I had seen that color used in ways that were quite beautiful. It’s definitely possible to make any single color work in your home — it’s all in how other colors and materials are incorporated with it. But how do you develop a cohesive color palette?Spend a few minutes browsing through the thousands of kitchens showcased on Houzz and you will quickly see they come in all shapes, sizes, styles and colors. Colorwise they can run the gamut from eye catching, bold and bright, to light, tranquil and airy. Featured here are some of the many delightfully colorful kitchens on Houzz, along with examples of color palettes inspired by the kitchens.

The initial inspiration for this blue and red kitchen came from the red of the Icestone countertops, which were matched to a stock glass color from the cabinetry company. All told, the designers at Gaia Kitchen & Bath used three different color glass inserts, two different color cabinets and two different countertop materials.

With a color as strong as red, sometimes a few strong accents are enough. In this kitchen by Ines Hanl of The Sky is the Limit Design, a red pedestal for a counter-height table and a red runner rug add vibrancy to a more subtly colored kitchen. And don’t forget artwork as a source of color in kitchens; notice how the framed poster on the far wall rounds out the color scheme.

These super-glossy blue wall tiles from the Italian company Fap Ceramiche add color and sheen to a modern kitchen. “A dose of your favorite color can personalize a kitchen and make it a refuge,” says architect Susan Doban, who frequently recommends vivid hues in her projects. A strip of chalkboard paint adds contrast — and a practical way to share information and favorite recipes.

Cool slate grays anchor this kitchen by Susan Diana Harris, ASID, while brighter greens steal the show both indoors and out. The walls are painted Behr’s Fresh Grass (color #426), and the ceiling is Benjamin Moore’s Pale Vista (2029-60). The windows (not shown) were left unobstructed to allow for views of the leafy garden outside. If your own kitchen is graced with garden views, remember that your choice of plantings will affect the color experience when you are indoors.

Designer Judy O’Neil Labins chose custom-colored milk paint with a flat, chalky surface for this vintage-style kitchen. “Salmon is a great color,” says Labins, “and most people can wear it in a flattering way.” Trying to decide on a color for your own kitchen? Consider the shades you most like to wear. They’re probably the ones you most enjoy looking at, and will help you look your best when you’re working your hardest at the stove.

Domiteaux + Baggett Architects, PLLC Warm Color PaletteIf you love lots of bright and bold colors but don’t want your kitchen to appear as if a rainbow exploded inside of it, consider working with analogous colors: colors next to each other on the color wheel. A simple way to think of this is warm versus cool colors. This kitchen features very bold splashes of warm oranges and red. The space feels exciting and energetic — great for entertaining.
