Easy Ways to Add Color to an All-White Kitchen



The all-white kitchen is a classic for a reason: it’s clean, timeless and it works with any home style. However, even a classic can feel a little bland. The kitchen remodelers at DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Orland Park have easy ways to add color to an all-white kitchen.

Paint Something That Isn’t a Cabinet or Part of the Wall

Repainting walls or kitchen cabinets: not easy. Painting the area under the kitchen bar or island: definitely easy. Take a look around your kitchen and locate small yet visible components that can be painted, such as floating wall shelves and pendant lights. Painting those small areas can be a fun weekend project.

Add a Gallery Wall

Hanging artwork may sound odd, given the utilitarian nature of kitchens, but it’s one of the best ways to incorporate color into your kitchen. Anything from film posters to still-life paintings are fair game, as long as it adds that much-needed splash of color. Better yet, have your kids’ masterpieces framed and hang them on the wall.

Boost Your Backsplash

You don’t have to demolish and reinstall tile to give your backsplash a pop of color. There are many adhesive-backed options that you can apply and then replace when you get tired of the color. Peel-and-stick options may require some practice to install. If available, choose waterslide decals or similar materials instead.

Choose Accessories With Bright Colors

Perhaps all your kitchen needs is some brightly colored accessories. Red diner-style barstools, colorful dish towels or brightly colored dinnerware can make all the difference in adding color to an otherwise white kitchen. You can make it more fun by choosing accessories with colors that go with the season: shades of orange and red for fall, green and red for the end-of-the-year holidays, and so on. The best part about accessories is that you don’t have to pick up a paintbrush or a hammer to add color to your kitchen.
