Jennifer Ott, writing for Houzz Magazine, shares some of the creativity of the colorful kitchen.
White and gray may be holding steady as the most popular colors for kitchens, but I’m noticing a definite uptick in interest in adding touches of more vibrant hues into the mix. One way homeowners are seeking to introduce color is through appliances in unexpected shades, such as magenta, lime green and coral.
Colorful appliances were on display at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show in February, where high-end appliance manufacturer Dacor showed off ovens and ranges that can be made in any color a homeowner chooses. Plus, I’ve noticed recently with my own design clients that stainless steel-appliance fatigue has set in. But these same homeowners aren’t necessarily excited to install black or white or other neutral-hued appliances either.
I don’t know which came first, the wide variety of colorful appliances available or the demand for them, but they are suddenly everywhere.
Of course, colorful appliances have been around a long time, almost as long as appliances have been available for purchase by homeowners. But the vast array of colors now available is unlike before, when a limited palette would move in and then out of fashion.
If you’re ready to get on board with colorful kitchen appliances, have a chat with your design professional about just how colorful you want to go, and to coordinate other colors and finishes with your chosen appliance color.
This fun, retro kitchen goes all-in with coral appliances. They work so well here because the rest of the color palette is light and neutral and the space gets an abundance of natural light.
