This year’s top kitchen paint colour trends run the whole length of the colour spectrum – from pigment-rich tones to pastel hues, there’s something for every taste and preferred palette. So, go on, pick up a brush and be on trend in 2021.
Smoke ’Em If You Got ’Em
We all know that picking out the right shade of white for a space is way harder than it sounds. But with its warm, grey undertones, you can take out the guesswork and opt for the “it” white of the year – smoky white.
Stop and Smell the Roses
This dusty rose shade is featuring in the pages of the top design magazines and on the profiles of Instagram influencers. Here it’s artfully mixed with greys, creams, rose gold and copper.
Green has been cropping up as the kitchen paint colour du jour, be it floor-to-ceiling coverage or accenting an architectural feature. Using a paint that dries to a hard, durable finish like BEHR PREMIUM® Cabinet & Trim Paint is a must.
And it’s not just the darker shades of green making it into the trendiest kitchen-colour schemes either – a softer, mint green is popping up in cool kitchens everywhere.
Dark and Dreamy
No longer just an accent colour, black is becoming the cabinet paint colour of choice for those seeking a livable, luxurious look. Add in warm, textured woods, matte gold hardware and glass mood lighting, and a black kitchen will shine.
Pull out your children’s paint box and go back to basics with this kitchen colour trend. Red, yellow and blue – on their own or mixed together – used on cabinets, window treatments, flooring or appliances can energize a kitchen.
There She Blues
Many of trendiest kitchen paint colours of 2021 require people to take the plunge when it comes to colour – but if you’re still feeling a little pigment shy, think of navy as a neutral. Sophisticated and subtle, this dark-blue shade is timeless.
For the past few years, we’ve seen a lot of classic grey paints as part of kitchen colour plans but in 2021, grey goes coastal with a more oceanic vibe (think soft blue undertones with a hint of green). Opting for a premium wall paint designed to handle high-traffic areas, such BEHR ULTRA™ SCUFF DEFENSE™ Interior Paint & Primer, means this rich, grey shade stands the test of time.
On the Hunt
Maybe it’s an attempt to bring the outside in, but green (in all its many shades) is king when it comes to kitchen colour trends in 2021 – and this year, hunter green is right on target.
One of the most exciting kitchen cabinet paint trends of the year is highlighting a centre island’s cabinet doors with its own bold paint colour. Help it have its moment in the sun.
