Colorful Ideas for the Kitchen

Don’t underestimate the ability of wood to add warm tones to your kitchen.

In an earlier blog post, we featured a kitchen that used bright bursts of orange and blue to create a pop art effect. Color can make all the difference in a kitchen. If you want to liven up your kitchen, choosing a great color scheme is a great place to start. But how do you know what colors to choose or where they should go? The best thing to do is to talk to your designer about what you want for your kitchen. You can also ruminate on some ideas that you can later take to your designer to improve for you. Here are a few color ideas to get you started!


Many people forget the powerful effect a backsplash can have on a kitchen’s aesthetic. You can choose colorful, hand-painted tiles to brighten your kitchen and give it a natural, rustic look. If your kitchen walls already have a dominant color, you can use back-painted glass to accentuate and complement the color. Leicht has also created a new glass rear niche panel for their 2016 collection. This glass backsplash is printed with a design of your choice to increase the decorative effect within a room.

Accent Wall

A bold color may not work in the entire kitchen, but it will be striking on a single wall. You can intensify the personality of your kitchen by choosing a wall and having it painted a bright, attractive color.

Open Shelves

Installing open shelves is a great way to display accent pieces, like a brilliant blue porcelain pitcher or a collection of striking antique copper mugs.

Natural Wood

Don’t underestimate the power of natural wood in the kitchen! Wood adds depth and warmth to the kitchen, making it a more inviting place for family and friends to gather. Whether you go with a butcher block countertop on your kitchen island or sleek wood paneling and cabinetry from Leicht, the depth and texture you get from wood is sure to make a tremendous difference in the atmosphere of your kitchen.
