This kitchen kept the overall color neutral white, with a pop of Haint Blue in the ceiling, Crown molding, and bar stools.  Wood accents and metallic finishes look great with this blue.

This made the list in 2019, and is still expected to be a big color in kitchens.  Make sure you don’t overdo it and focus the black on being away from the airy ceiling.  Black pairs great with warm wood and crisp white tiles, and don’t get me started on how fabulous it looks next to gold!

Black’s favorite cousin Charcoal is also in for those not ready to dive into deep black. It still gives the wow factor when contrasted with white.

Yes, you read that right.  2020 is the year for vibrant colors to boldly take their place in the kitchen.  As long as you have a strong wood or white presents to ground these colors, you can pick really any color, or colors you want!  Limiting your kitchen to one color is so 2019.  This year multi colors are in for the kitchen.  You can achieve this by picking an accent color for cabinets and then purchasing your kitchen aid, or microwave in a fun new color as well.  

Now if you aren’t one for vibrant hues, you probably fall into our last category. 

Muted colors.  

And number one…..

Naval Blue

This kitchen paint color was crowned color of the year by Sherwin-Williams.  It is expected to make its debut in all rooms of the home, mainly seeing it in the kitchen.  Accent this one with a soft pink or gold for an elegant kitchen look.
