You’ll Love These Colorful Kitchen Islands

It’s awfully tempting to play your interior paint colors safe, especially in the kitchen. It is, after all, a big investment, and you want it to stay fresh for a long time.

Vibrant colors give a room personality – they make it your own. One way that designers incorporate kitchen color? Brightly hued kitchen islands.

Bring a little sunshine into your life with a yellow kitchen island using a color like PPG’s Fresh Lemonade. We love the cozy, country feel of this space, and the way the island it coordinates so perfectly with the window shade. Yellow can bring feelings of optimism and happiness to your kitchen.

A marine-blue paint color like Shimmering Sea on the cabinets and islands grounds this open, bright kitchen. The captain’s chairs give the space a nautical feel that suits the coastal blue hue.

A mint green paint like PPG’s Sweet Nothings is a soft, feminine color. Here, white cabinets and countertops, and gleaming fixtures set it off to perfection.
