Teal may not seem like a kitchen color, but you’ll be shocked at how much it can cool down the look of your space.

While kitchens are generally thought of as “warm” spaces with cozy atmospheres, more and more people are opting to modernize their kitchens with bright splashes of color.

Your teal doesn’t have to be bold. There are bright shades, but you can also opt for a teal-gray mix that’s easier on the eyes. It looks great with white or gray countertops and appliances.


For those who want a change but aren’t interested in going with something too off the beaten path, a cream shade is a great choice for a kitchen.

Cream isn’t quite white, but it’s close enough to maintain a neutral look. While white looks clean and modern, we don’t love it as a kitchen color. Kitchens are messy and one bad splash or spill can lead to walls looking stained.

When you choose cream-colored paint, you avoid some of the problems associated with stark white walls without overwhelming the eyes. Also, all painters have experience with cream, so you know that you’re working with a reliable color.

Cream looks great with all appliances, but we love it for kitchens with a splash of color elsewhere.


Sage green is another almost-neutral color but it will still give you that pop of color you might be looking for in your kitchen. This is a calming green that can fit in almost any household.

It gives homes a natural feel.

For us, sage green looks best with black appliances but it can also pair well with marble countertops.


Rust is a bold choice for a paint color. It’s warm and fiery and can amp up the cozy factor of any kitchen. Bonus: any sauce splashes will go unnoticed.

Because this is a bold choice, it’s best to keep any accessory colors, like tiles, decorations, and backsplashes, more understated. We love this reddish-brown color paired with black appliances.


For a kitchen that’s warm but not as loud as with the rust tones, we love the yellow-brown ochre for a fresh kitchen color.

Bright yellow is tempting for a cheerful space, but it overwhelms the eye. Instead, this toned-down yellow is almost gold and it gives your space a subtle glow, especially when you’re making your coffee at sunrise.
