Colorful Kitchens / August 19, 2018 / Banner Jones.
Whites, soft grays and warm woods have dominated the kitchen style arena lately. But there are those who want to amp up the color in their kitchens. While some wade in with soft blues, others want to make dinner surrounded by hues like a sunny yellow or an electrifying cobalt. If you’re considering a cabinet makeover, check out these bold and beautiful paint options.
The bold shade is a custom paint color. The double cabinet of pantry storage has a glass-fronted cabinet with glass shelves on one side. “It’s painted inside and lit,” Graver says. “The owners wanted somewhere to store glasses and to have some display space too.”
An unspoken rule of thumb in interiors is to never use blue in rooms such as kitchens or dining rooms where food is being presented. The idea is that blue tones are unnatural and make food look unappetizing. I’m not sure how true that is, but I do know that rules are meant to be broken and blue kitchens are looking cool and current for me.
Fiery orange. A shock of orange runs along the lower cabinetry in this open-plan kitchen, bringing the heat to the work zone without intruding on the rest of the calmer finishes in the adjacent spaces. The paint job was customized by applying many layers and then finishing it with hand polishing.
