This contemporary farmhouse kitchen is dominated by warm, dove gray and gold-toned maple. Light maple floors and rustic wood beams provide a natural texture that contrasts with modern marble countertops with deep swirling and a backsplash of subway tile. Gray-painted, straightforward Shaker-style cabinets contrast beautifully with aged brass hardware. Copper-shaded dual pendants add another metal to the mix.

When a backsplash is added, white kitchens acquire a new personality. Glossy green subway tile provides vibrancy in this transitional kitchen with white Shaker-style cabinetry and black stone counters. Dishes with multiple colors give open cabinet shelves another splash of color.

The warm wood island in this timeless kitchen contrasts beautifully with the striking floor tile and stylish black cabinets. The kitchen’s high-contrast color palette is grounded by the distressed blonde wood finish, which also anchors the room. Marble countertops and white-tiled walls provide consistency throughout. Brass fixtures and cabinet hardware luster and enliven the dark kitchen cabinet paint tone.

A light sage green paint job on the cabinets gives this kitchen a relaxed, soothing vibe. A white tile backsplash subtly compliments the color of the kitchen cabinets, but its distinctive herringbone pattern gives it character. Warmth and texture are added by the island cabinets and floors’ natural wood finish.

A strong and vibrant kitchen color scheme is navy blue and gold. Blue on an island or base cabinets and gold sparkles as hardware and fixtures create a very preppy kitchen color scheme. A gray backsplash subtly sets off the vibrant kitchen island, and the kitchen’s color pattern is unified with framed art.

A high-energy citron color created by combining yellow and green stand out boldly in kitchen color schemes. Here, the electric-hued subway-tiled walls give the room a throwback vibe. For a sleek, modern appearance, lower cabinets and appliances have stainless-steel fronts, and the focal point is a black stone countertop. The gray-painted ceiling has a glossy finish that resembles stainless steel surfaces.

Some color schemes for the kitchen aren’t meant to stand out. White and pastel colors work together to produce a light, airy, and calming color design for the kitchen. The crisp white of the metal bar stools, the retro-style white refrigerator, and the subway tile backsplash are only a few shades lighter than the mint-green cabinets. The matte black wall sconces and the black grout lines between the tiles punch the light color scheme.

Blazing orange cabinets are paired with a cozy grey island in this modern kitchen color scheme. Contrasting with the more contemporary components are natural elements like light-washed ceiling beams and dark-stained wood counters. Many large windows let in plenty of light, reflecting off the beautiful timber.

White plus Dove Gray plus Icy Blue

Because of the vibrant kitchen paint colors, this spacious kitchen is flooded with light. A white plank ceiling and cabinetry make the room more open when combined with natural light. The icy-blue island paint color is starkly contrasted with a white marble surface. The space is made more gleaming using metal drawers and cabinet pulls. Dove grey backsplash tiles give extra glitter, and the room’s reddish-brown floorboards keep everything grounded and cozy.

 

Black, White, and Brown

Add a solid contrast to kitchen color palettes with white cabinetry. Black is used as the accent color in this instance. This neutral kitchen, which is flooded with natural light, feels warm rather than frigid. The beams and range hood are made of natural wood, maintaining a homey, informal appearance.

 

White, Coral, and Black

Small kitchens are the ideal setting for this color palette. A wallpapered ceiling gives an otherwise bland kitchen a vivid coral touch. The little kitchen appears larger by drawing attention higher and by adding rich color and pattern without becoming overpowering when wallpaper is just applied to the ceiling. Glass-front cabinets add to the room’s open, breezy appearance.

A green refrigerator may not seem attractive, but it becomes the center of attention in an entirely white kitchen. To successfully include a vibrant kitchen appliance, you must ensure that the remainder of the space offers a calm contrast. Brown counters and shelving are a neutral transition between intense green and startling white.

This unique kitchen is functional thanks to the contrast between the aged wood and contemporary kitchen cabinet paint colors. Steel stools, basic metal pendants, and bright green paint color on the cabinetry enhance the industrial-yet-rugged appearance. The kitchen doesn’t feel like a cave because of the natural light in the space, which offsets the dark wood. The floors and ceiling are made of darker wood, contrasting nicely with the white paneled walls.
