Timeless and Classic Kitchen Color Schemes


Classic, everlasting design — for a kitchen you’ll love. When designing a kitchen, one of the biggest decisions is selecting the color scheme. We’ll help you move beyond current trends and design a kitchen that you’ll enjoy for years to come.

The kitchen is the heart of the home and sets the tone for the remainder of your space. When planning your kitchen design, the focal items to consider are cabinetry, countertops, flooring, appliances, light fixtures, sink, backsplash, and wall color. All elements need to come together to create a cohesive and functional space. 

Choosing a color scheme may sound simple, but you want to ensure the result will be something you are happy with for years to come. Before selecting your color scheme, take these tips into consideration. 

  • A neutral base is often a great place to start as it doesn’t distract from other colors in the kitchen and works with seasonal décor changes.    
  • The kitchen should mesh with the surrounding rooms and pull them together with color, but it doesn’t need to match completely.
  • Determine whether your space would benefit from more light or if it already has enough natural light. The amount of natural light will help to determine whether you can bring dark or light elements into the kitchen. 
  • Select neutral stone countertops as they are timeless and won’t go out of style. Bring in a pop of color through the backsplash and easily update in the future if you desire a change.

The kitchen is a great opportunity to incorporate pops of color. First, determine how much of a permanent commitment you are willing to make. Then, determine how the color will influence the overall feeling of the space. Finally, consider how the color scheme will flow into the rest of your home. 

Color combinations that will deliver exceptional results:

  • White cabinetry, white paint, any floors
  • Green cabinetry, white paint, light wood floors
  • Gray cabinetry, white paint, white floors
  • Black cabinetry, taupe paint, light gray floors
  • White cabinetry, blue paint, dark gray floors
  • Blue cabinetry, gray paint, light wood floors
  • Greige paint and cabinetry, wood floors

Once you have determined the color commitment, you can incorporate it into low or high-commitment aspects of your kitchen. For a more timeless result, we recommend opting for pops of color in low-commitment elements of the kitchen. Paint is a low commitment as it is relatively simple to swap over time, whereas your cabinetry and countertops are more significant. For other subtle pops of color, consider the backsplash, dining chairs, or decor pieces like tea towels. Even a slight tint of color on the walls can transform the overall feeling of the room. 

Choosing your kitchen color scheme is a big decision — with the guidance of a professional, you can take some of the pressure off your shoulders. Our team of interior designers will guide you through every step of the selection process with informed recommendations and practical solutions to help you design a kitchen you love.
