Kitchen color trends come and go, so designing a home that is both modern and timeless can be quite the challenge. If you want more than white contemporary cabinets in an all white kitchen but also hope to create a clean, classic design, these four color pairings can help you achieve your dream kitchen.
- Ivory / Cream / Gray
Let’s start with the most neutral color pairing. A mix of smart neutrals can give you a monochromatic color scheme that is right on point. The difference is warmth, which is achieved by layering off-white shades and modern neutrals.
White is clean, but it can also feel cold. In this particular pairing, we use ivory, cream and gray. While still a subdued color palette, it offers that hint of color and dimension you need to achieve warmth.
One of our favorite contemporary cabinets that would fit perfectly with this pairing is the Vision Almond. This off-white cabinetry features recessed doors and drawer panels. The applied moldings add character and help make these modern cabinets more transitional and timeless.
2. Beige / Blue / Gray
If you love the neutral look but want to turn it up a notch, consider this color pairing. By blending beige, blue and gray, you achieve a neutral design with a splash of classic color. Blue is one of the kitchen color trends that continues to thrive, and it looks fresh and modern next to beige and grey.
Consider a blue backsplash like the Cristezza Club Glass Tile in Slate. The handmade glass mosaic tile is a beautiful gray and azure blend that fits perfectly into a gray kitchen. This style also comes in a baby blue shade for a softer touch.
Either of these selections will help you achieve that subtle pop of color next to your beige or gray contemporary cabinets and will make your modern kitchen feel a little more transitional.
3. Navy / White / Yellow
This classic color palette will give your kitchen timeless appeal. Navy and white are always in style, and the warm addition of yellow delivers an unexpected splash of color for the finishing touch.
Another benefit of this color palette is how it complements natural wood. From your cabinets to furnishings, you will have no difficulty incorporating this favored material into your kitchen.
4. Off-White / Brown / Green
Those inspired by nature will relish at this clean color scheme that incorporates creamy white with earthy browns and leafy greens. Start with wood-look tile for your floors, build up to beautiful off-white kitchen cabinets, and incorporate that gorgeous green with a glossy backsplash.
We think the Cristezza Club Glass Tile in Olive is the perfect shade for a uniform look. If you prefer something more dynamic, the mix of natural stone and glass in the Piano Tile in Arizona is truly eye catching.
Kitchen color trends don’t need to be complicated. Keep things simple with a color pairing that mixes neutrals and a touch of your favorite classic color. The result will be a timeless kitchen that stays in style for years to come.
