Kitchen / June 13, 2018 /
Blue barely makes the best kitchen colors list. It has traditionally been considered a downer color, not conducive to stimulating ones appetite. After all, how many foods can you think of that are naturally blue? One thing to say about blue kitchens is that they have an instant vintage appeal. In limited amounts and with just the right tone, blue can give your little kitchen a retro sweet, cottage-y appeal.
Many homeowners and designers agree that light yellow is a winning color in the kitchen. It is friendly enough not to raise any eyebrows, yet distinctive enough that it will complement most types of kitchen cabinet wood species. Like whites, the yellows reflect maximum ambient light, a plus if you have a gloomy townhouse or row house—yet without the hospital-sterile feeling that white convey.
