You’ll Love These Kitchen Island Color Ideas

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. But when you’re thinking about your next home improvement project, like a kitchen remodel, remember that vibrant colors can help give a room personality – they make it your own.

If you want to keep your kitchen’s color scheme relatively safe, you may want to consider adding some color to your kitchen island. While your subway tile, pendant lights, and kitchen cabinets can play it neutral, you can add a splash of color to your kitchen island and make it the focal point of your kitchen design.

purple kitchen cabinets


Take purple, for example, like this bold, plum paint color, PPG’s Mirabella. A black granite countertop and neutral wood floors show the owner’s bright, courageous personality. While painting your cabinets entirely in purple may result in an eclectic kitchen, a purple farmhouse style island may be what your interior design called for.

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 how the island 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.
