4 Pretty Pastel-Colored Kitchens You'd Love To Have at Home

Your cooking corner has never been this sweet


We often see pastel shades in areas like the bedroom, living room, and bathroom for a number of reasons. Aside from making a space feel lighter and more spacious, these dainty hues can also make the nooks at home seem more relaxing and inviting.

However, aside from these common spaces, you'll be surprised to know that pastels can work in high traffic and busy areas like the kitchen, too. Add some charm to your cooking haven by painting the cabinets, updating your furnishings, and even bringing in new must-haves. Let these sweet and delightful spaces inspire you: 

Pick out your favored pastel base and work from there.

Paint your kitchen walls, and invest in appliances and accent pieces of the same color. Complete the look with white cabinets and backsplash for a clean look.

Work on your door and invest in lighting fixtures.

Choose a pastel shade and consider painting the door of your kitchen with the said hue. Pick a complementary color and use it as guide when shopping for lighting fixtures. If you prefer printed walls over plain ones, pick out a fun wallpaper that will complement your overall pastel palette.

Repurpose and upcycle what you can.

If you want a more quaint and beachy look for your kitchen, a fun DIY idea would be to use old wooden pallets for your cabinet doors and paint them in different pastel shades. Pair these pieces with pastel-colored wallpaper for your overhead cabinets to complete the charming shabby chic cottage feel.

Pastels can complete a modern look, too.

While pastel colors go well with retro and shabby chic design, you can also consider these muted hues if you have top-of-the-line appliances and must-haves. The softness and coolness of mint green works well with the stainless steel appliances and black knobs of the featured kitchen above.
