When looking for a color palette to compliment your modern kitchen design, it can be difficult to know where to start. For inspiration, here are a few of our favorite cool and contemporary color combinations for the kitchen.
Light and Bright Combos
Once upon a time, pink and green was the “It” color combo. According to Southern Living, this colorful kitchen trend is making a comeback. Add a splash of crisp white to the mix, and you get cool and contemporary kitchens with a splash of pure whimsy.
To get the look, pair Mint Green Glass Subway Tile with Midtown White Shaker all wood cabinetry. Then, choose a soft pink shade for the walls. For a list of gorgeous pink paint colors, according to top designers, click here for a recent article from Elle Decor.
Bright shades of blue are also fun and always in fashion. According to Sherwin Williams, blue is the most popular color family by far. For a modern color palette, start with an energetic blue wall color or backsplash tile. Then, add cool contrast with white all wood cabinetry, such as our Regency White collection.
Neutral and Monochromatic Combos
Monochromatic color schemes are right on point. While light, neutral shades of gray, beige and white are classic, they can also be chic. The key is to layer tones for visual interest. Start with a subtle shade, and go one or two steps up the color swatch for an accent wall.
Neutral hues are soothing and can be a cool choice for contemporary kitchens, especially with decorating in an industrial or Modern Farmhouse style. Willow Lane Cabinetry offers a number of light finishes, including white, off-white and gray options in all wood cabinetry.
Dark and Dramatic Combos
Deep jewel tones are right on trend for home interiors, and can be a stunning choice for contemporary kitchens. From cool Emerald and Turquoise to warm Amethyst and Ruby Red, these dramatic, versatile shades pair nicely with both light and dark cabinet finishes.
Blueprint, Behr’s Color of the Year, also has a distinctly contemporary flair. This is especially true when paired with the dark cabinet finishes that optimize modern kitchen design, like our Midtown Dark Shaker all wood cabinetry. Cool Carolina Timber Wood Look Tile softens the look and is perfect for wet areas like the kitchen. Then, add natural stone countertops and stainless steel appliances to complete your cool and contemporary custom kitchen design.
