8 Cheap & Easy Ways to Add Color Back into Your Kitchen
It’s no secret that neutral kitchens continue to reign with class white, basic beige, and grays leading the pack. They are timeless, sleek, and match most décor styles. But if you’re feeling a little blah about your mind-numbing neutrals, here are 8 ideas for adding a little life back into your kitchen.
- A pop of paint
Painting your whole kitchen is a big investment of time and money. Instead, add a splash of color with a new coat of paint on your island or lower kitchen cabinets!
- Tea towels and lamps
Even the smallest touches can have a huge impact. Consider a set of new dish towels or a small lamp. This is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to add some pizazz to your neutral kitchen.
- Fresh flowers or fruit
The kitchen is an ideal spot for a fresh pitcher of fresh flowers because you spend so much of your life in this room. When they die in a week, you get to pick a whole new color for your kitchen! Or if that’s a bit of a hassle for you, opt for some greenery, like air plants or succulents.
- Chairs and window treatments
Depending on the fabric you select, upholstered bar stools and kitchen chair cushions can add surprising texture and color to an otherwise dull kitchen.
- Dishes and glassware
Open shelves are meant to be filled with a colorful riot of pieces. Don’t have open shelves? Add some floating shelves on the cheap or display your vibrant dishware on your countertops.
- Bright rugs
An oversize rug is your color ticket in a mostly neutral kitchen.
- Small appliances
It turns out that the infusion of color you’re seeking might just be hiding in the pantry. Pull out that coral Dutch oven, cobalt blue teapot, or Gen Z yellow standing mixer, and display it on the counter.
- Knobs and pulls
Last but not least, a fun way to add some subtle color throughout most of your kitchen space is by changing out your drawer pulls and knobs to ones in a single bright color.
