Whether it’s planning for, preparing, or executing a recipe, every task in the kitchen takes up a substantial amount of your time. You’ll find yourself inevitably spending a couple of hours every day in the kitchen, preparing a quick meal between work calls or an elaborate spread when guests come over. So, shouldn’t the most frequented area of your home match your standards in style?
And making your kitchen an inspiring and delightful space isn’t the Herculean task you think it is. All it needs is a dash of creativity and color!
And like we said, choosing the right color for your kitchen doesn’t have to be difficult. All you need to do is look at all the options in front of you with a keen and patient eye. There are four parts of your kitchen that you’ll need to decide colors for. First – the cabinets – these make up the largest part of a kitchen. So, they should be the first things to consider when deciding the color scheme.
Next will be the countertops and the floor. You’ll need to keep in mind aesthetics as well as functionality here and choose a color that matches the rest of the elements of your kitchen. Nothing too flashy or overly colorful here. Then come – the appliances. But you don’t necessarily have to match them with your kitchen colors. They can stay neutral. And finally, the walls. As the backdrop, their colors will be crucial to determining the final look of your kitchen. So, choose them carefully.
Here are a few color recommendations from us to help you get closer to your dream kitchen. Read on!

Bring in the some sunshiny Yellow
Are you a sunny person? Then this color is definitely for your kitchen.

If you want to go bold with deeper hues, these might be worth a shot!
Dark hues in kitchen design might have been unthinkable a decade ago, but are quite ‘in’ today. And this is especially true for larger kitchens. The right set of dark hues can turn your spacious cooking zone into a space with a distinctive and intense vibe.
