Add Bold Wall Colors
Using a bold color in an otherwise all-white kitchen is unlikely to feel overwhelming. If you have a favorite color, feel free to create interest in your space by painting the walls, while leaving the cabinets, window trim, kitchen sink and other items gleaming white. Do you have open shelving or glass cabinet fronts? Don’t be afraid to add your favorite hue, or even wallpaper, to the wall behind the shelves for a fun pop of color.
Quality paint is the fastest and most flexible way to make this transition, but if you are looking for a new idea for adding texture to your kitchen, consider adding vivid tile. Designer Meg Braff featured teal blue tile in a modern kitchen unveiled in Southern Living. The Magazine notes that “[t]he look of this kitchen hinges on the contrast between blue and white,” with the colorful subway tiles being slightly larger than the traditional versions. From behind the cooker to the wall space around the window and the floating shelves, the vibrant color delights the eye.
