Are you looking for new ways to spice up your kitchen?
We have some colorful kitchen remodeling ideas.
While sheer white kitchens are popular for smaller rooms, making the space feel larger and brighter by reflecting natural light, some of you might be seeking more of a warm and cheery atmosphere.
That’s why we are starting our Themed Kitchen Transformations Series with the color yellow, a color that might just become your favorite.
Known as the color of happiness, optimism and enlightenment, yellow is usually used as an accent to liven an outfit, thrown into a bouquet or used in art forms such as paintings and pottery but it is usually not the first color of choice when planning for a kitchen remodeling project.
Fortunately, yellow comes in many shades and tones that are far from overwhelming. Adding a pop of color to a kitchen can be done through various elements when considering a kitchen makeover.
From the walls, floors and ceiling to cabinet surfaces, appliances and furniture, using color can be done in a subtle or blatant manor, depending on your likes.
Our tip: Mix yellow with white and gray for a clean, calming effect. We always recommend selecting the granite countertop color in combination with the theme of the kitchen.
Yellow Kitchen Walls and Painted Kitchen Cabinets
Using yellow for your kitchen design is tricky if you want it to be the main color, but mixing it into the kitchen elements to brighten the room is much easier.nWalls and cabinetry are known to set the tone of the room, so one way to update a kitchen with an existing white décor is to paint an accent wall with a bright yellow.
You can also opt for the two-toned effect for standing kitchen cabinets by painting the upper or lower cabinet doors.
Using grey and black granite countertops and hardwood floors helps balance the bright yellow of kitchen cabinets with earthy tones for this kitchen.
Bright Colors for Kitchen Countertops
A single slab of intense gold or citron yellow will bring a boost of energy and warmth to the whole room. Our recycled glass countertops come in bright blue and yellow, perfect for adding color to an otherwise dismal kitchen.
If you are looking for neutral counters, consider our many granite countertop colors that can be paired with a variety of colored rooms if you do decide to change your mind.
Bright Mosaic Tile
Brightly colored mosaic tiles do the trick as well, and can be paired nicely with neutral kitchen countertops. Granite Transformations has several honey shades of mosaic tiles that would create a great accent for your kitchen.
