Blue kitchens: One of the strongest style trendsMartha Taylor-Brown ▼ | June 15, 2019
Blue might not seem like the ideal color to incorporate in your kitchen but we prove otherwise with these fine examples.
I'm so blue When you have a large, spacious kitchen you may embellish it with blue elements
Contrary to navy blue, dark blue is the perfect base tone color. Having a dark blue hue as a base tone works exceptionally well because it blends well with any and every additional color you decide to use. Pair with blue, cream or gray for a sophisticated approach. When using dark blue hues as a base color, you want to keep the rest of your decor as simple as possible in order to give it the spotlight it deserves. And don't be afraid, with enough bright elements you won't end too deep in blue.
When in doubt consider a pastel hue. Having a pastel blue hue displayed as part of your cabinetry is great when you want a softer, more feminine twist to a kitchen. Pair it with other lighter hues to continue evolving the color palette without taking away from how soft and intimate having pastel blue cabinets will feel. When it comes to pastels consider having other soft hues to provide the room with as much airiness as possible, without over-cluttering the overall decor.
While having blue cabinets might not seem like a way of achieving a minimalist approach in the kitchen its quite contrary, the boldness of using darker blue shades adds a sense of balance when it is paired in a simple space. Pair it with hues of beige or white to deliver a minimal appeal right when and where you need it. Going minimal means you have just enough decor in the room to make it feel grand while still being every bit of useful. You don’t want to have too little bits of decor or too much. ■
