Kitchen paint doesn’t always have to be white. Bold is beautiful, and if you’re ready to make a change in your house, then think about choosing a kitchen paint color that’s a little different. Change can be scary, but you may be pleasantly surprised with the outcome.

Color is so powerful that it can affect mood, convey emotion and invoke physiological reactions. While going with a bold kitchen paint is courageous, change is good for all of us once in a while.

See our six bold and trendy paint color ideas that might just inspire you to make a transformation in your own kitchen.

1. Yellow

A kitchen that’s painted yellow is known to increase metabolism, brighten the room and give you energy. If you ask me, these are all things that any homeowner would be after in a room where you eat and spend a lot of time.

Yellow is a cheerful color that will keep you smiling. The darker you go, the bolder your walls will be. This color isn’t for everyone, so read on to see what other possibilities we have in store.

Purple is a modern paint color that’s certainly a bold choice for the kitchen. Use a warm and rich hue of purple to get the look right. If purple walls aren’t your style but you like the color, then install purple appliances or paint your cabinets purple.

White and dark wood are great accents for these alternate ideas. Green, red and teal are a few other modern kitchen paint colors that are trending. Use color to make a statement and communicate that you’re living out loud, and loving it!

Blue Paint

3. Blue & Teal

Blue is often a popular color among folks! It’s a beautiful and calming color with a lot of hot shades. Teal is associated with positive, serene, cool, tasteful, sophisticated and confident moods. Shades of blues and purples invoke contemplative, meditative, spiritual, intuitive, mysterious and enchanting moods. Dreamy shades of bright and vibrant blue remind most people of the beach and relaxing. This can be especially rewarding to come home to in the winter when everything is cold and dark outside.

Orange Accent Wall

4. Accent Wall

If you want to brighten your kitchen or make a change without completely overhauling it, then think about painting one bold accent wall. An accent wall means that one wall in the room is painted a bright and bold hue. When done right, this wall becomes a striking design element that adds character and pizazz to the room. Orange is a trendy pick for an accent wall in the kitchen. You want to pick a vibrant color for the singular wall, so that the painted wall livens and defines the space on its own.

Believe it or not, colorful wallpaper is back and it’s better than ever. There are fun and unique patterns beyond your wildest imagination, and homeowners aren’t being shy about using them in their home. 

Navy Paint

5. Navy

Use navy paint if you’re going for a dark and dramatic setting. This type of deep blue hue looks great with white trim and white crown molding. Personally, this is one of my favorite looks! It’s also a color that is often associated with luxury and relaxation. It’s a great color for your dining room too!

Mint Green

6. Pastel

See how well the mint green walls blend in this kitchen? Mint green is the perfect pastel because it’s a color that works well in both the springtime and winter. White, light gray (or silver) and dark hardwood are a few colors that compliment this shade of green nicely.

Are you feeling inspired and want to make this a DIY paint project? Well then get the most use out of your paintbrushes. The Snug recommends soaking gunked-up nylon brushes in hot vinegar for up to 30 minutes to remove paint and soften the bristles. Afterward, wash them in hot, soapy water, brushing off paint as needed, then rinse and let dry—good as new.


Any one of these bold paint ideas will make a statement in your kitchen. Like they always say, go big or go home. They’re all trendy in their own way, so go with the one you like most and have some fun with it!
