Are you bored of your kitchen’s current look? Are the cabinets and walls a little too bland for your taste? If so, it might be time to add some color! A splash of paint or a few brightly colored accessories can make a big difference in the overall feel of your kitchen. In this blog post, we will discuss creative ways to add color to your kitchen. Let’s get started!
1) Paint Your Cabinets A Different Color
If your kitchen cabinets are the same color as everything else in the room, you might want to consider painting them with a different shade. This will give your kitchen an updated look that is sure to brighten up any space. You can even use chalk paint if you don’t want any brush strokes showing through on painted surfaces! The best part about using this type of paint is that it comes off easily when needed, so there’s no need for sanding down before repainting again later on down the road (or just leave it as-is).
You’ll likely need help from at least one other person since most people cannot reach all areas themselves, but once completed, after several coats applied evenly throughout each side of each cabinet door, there will be a noticeable change in appearance!
An example of how to transform your kitchen’s cabinets:
Use chalk paint – Start by painting all over the kitchen area with this type of product. Once dry, apply another coat or two until desired results are achieved. Apply evenly throughout every side as well.
Paint just the cabinet doors – If you want to get more creative, try painting only the cabinet doors with a different color. This will really make them stand out and be a focal point in the room.
Resurface cabinets – A much more expensive option but can give your kitchen an entirely new look! Cabinets can be sanded down and stained (or painted) to achieve almost any look you desire.
Add trim or molding – Another way to add some personality to your cabinets is by adding trim or molding around their edges. This detail makes them stand out and can brighten up even the dullest of kitchens.
2) Install New Countertops in A Unique Shape
The shape of your countertop can make a big difference when it comes to making your kitchen more colorful. You don’t have to stick with the standard rectangle or square – explore all options available!
Consider installing an island that is a different color than other elements in the room (such as white granite on counters while using dark wood cabinets). This will give you plenty of space for cooking and entertaining guests without compromising style.
If islands aren’t feasible due to lack of space, then find another way, such as adding shelving above the sink area, so there’s still enough work surface below them plus additional storage above the head height.
An example of how to add color with unique countertops:
Granite – A classic choice that is available in a variety of colors. This material is both durable and easy to clean.
Marble – Another popular option, marble comes in a wide range of colors and patterns. It’s also known for its elegant look.
Concrete – If you’re looking for something unique, consider concrete countertops. They are affordable and can be customized to any shape or color you desire.
Tile – If you want a backsplash that makes a statement, try tiling your counters in a bold pattern or color. You can find tile in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and colors, so there is sure to be one that fits your style.
Wood – If you have a rustic kitchen, consider using wood for your countertops. They are easy to clean and maintain while being durable enough to withstand the wear of everyday life in any home with kids or pets running around!
3) Add a Brightly Colored Backsplash
One of the quickest and easiest ways to add color to your kitchen is by installing a brightly colored backsplash. This can be done in just a few hours, with minimal DIY skills required!
There are a variety of materials to choose from, such as tile, vinyl, or even wallpaper. You can find backsplashes in all sorts of colors and patterns, so it’s easy to find one that matches your style. Wallpaper murals offer endless possibilities for creativity when choosing how you want your backsplash to look like! A mural can be of any scene you desire, from a tropical beach to a whimsical forest.
4) Add Stained Glass Windows
Stained glass windows are beautiful and can add so much color to your kitchen if done correctly. You don’t have many options since there aren’t too many different designs available, but this type of window looks gorgeous when chosen right (and it makes a great conversation piece).
If you’re looking for a way to add some color and privacy at the same time, stained glass windows are a great option. They can also help to brighten up a dark or dreary kitchen.
A few things to keep in mind when installing stained glass windows:
The window should be the focal point of the room – This means that it should be placed in a spot where it will be seen and appreciated by everyone who enters the kitchen.
The window should match the style of your home – If you have a traditional home, then a stained glass window with intricate designs would look best. If your home has a more modern or eclectic vibe, go for something more abstract or simple in design.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money on this project! You can buy ready-made panels at most hardware stores or craft shops for about $100-$200 per panel, depending on size and style. If you want something really unique, go online and search “custom stained glass windows”. There are many companies out there offering custom designs at affordable prices!
The best part about installing stained glass windows is how easy it is to maintain them. You just wipe clean with a damp cloth, and they’re ready for another day’s use!
5) Different colored appliances
Another way of adding color into your kitchen is creating a unique focal point by using different colored appliances – this can be done with everything from your refrigerator and dishwasher to the microwave or oven stovetop!
The most important thing is that all of these items match each other in terms of style and color, so there isn’t too much contrast between them. This will create an overall cohesive look for your kitchen, which will make it feel more welcoming when people come over because they’ll be able to see the effort put into decorating this space.
