Kitchen inspirations and solutions


One of the most important aspects of home design is colour selection. Colour is not only an aesthetic choice but also functional. Colours have a psychological impact on users and evoke certain emotions. Let’s see which are the best colours for the kitchen.

But first, there are a few things you should know. Regardless of the colour you choose, make sure you consider how that colour will work in a particular room. As a general rule, dark colours will make the room look smaller and darker, especially if it doesn’t receive much light.


On the other hand, light colours will make the room look bigger and brighter. Therefore, if you paint a wall of a tiny kitchen black and furnish it with dark-coloured fittings, it could give a feeling of clutter and claustrophobia.



Each colour creates a different effect depending on the room’s style and furniture. Neutral colours are the safest option as they are easy to match, work well with anything and are never too invasive, especially in the kitchen.


  • White or cream: purity and light. These colours work well in any environment. You can choose an all-white kitchen with white walls, white cabinets, white appliances, or create light and dark contrasts.
  • Grey: the neutral colour par excellence. It brings elegance and style to any space. It creates a ‘sober’ kitchen.
  • Taupe: a recent colour trend. It’s a delicate shade, excellent for furniture and surfaces alike. You can also use it to mix colours and materials!
  • Beige: like white, it brightens up a space and gives a touch of colour. The only downside is that you can get tired of it after a while.


Neutral colours are very suitable for classic and minimalist decors.



Of course, neutrals are not for everyone. Some prefer decorating their kitchen and living spaces with a burst of colour. Here are some tips to help you choose what’s best for you.

  • Blue: an elegant and classy choice. It is a primary colour and works well in contemporary settings. From dark blue to lighter shades, it will add a seaside appeal to your kitchen.
  • Yellow: one of the most popular colours among cuisine lovers. Yellow is a primary colour. It is a happy and brightening colour that stimulates mental activity. A yellow wall, matched with yellow chairs and yellow accents, goes well with any neutral colour.
  • Orange: this is another cheerful and energic colour. It goes well especially if matched with the wooden floors and fittings.
  • Purple: although it may seem an unusual choice, purple is a great colour for the kitchen. It has a calming effect and gives the room a unique character and elegance. It is excellent for cabinets. To create a contrast, you could add some yellow accents, and it goes well with all neutrals.
  • Brown: although not to its full saturation, brown is very suitable for woods. From floors to accessories, hardwood is a timeless colour that can create a rustic, contemporary style. Also in the kitchen.
