All it takes is a few cans of paint, a striking quartz countertop, and some basic DIY skills to give any home a new look. So, when a homeowner wishes to get motivated to pick up a paintbrush and start painting a kitchen, it is best to understand neutral colour schemes. 

Instead of one vivid colour throughout the kitchen, why not try different tones of the same colour in one room? When considering a bright look for a kitchen, Caesarstone has a wide variety of high-quality quartz countertop products to pick from. No matter what type of kitchen a homeowner wants, Caesarstone has the designs to fit. 

Homeowners that don’t want to do an extensive renovation, can easily add colour without spending too much money. In fact, if a homeowner uses primarily neutral colours in other parts of the kitchen, they can easily change the colours and shades in the kitchen to suit any mood at any time of year. 

The lighter hue of a neutrally-coloured kitchen will always wonderfully compliment any colour scheme, especially when engineered quartz is integrated into the space. When looking for a timeless white base that is moved by soft shadows, products like Caesarstone’s 5151 Empire White is a great choice. High-quality white quartz countertops can provide a sense of equilibrium and open up practically any space. 

When choosing that perfect quartz countertop, individuals need to remember that finding the perfect colour scheme is imperative. 

Try looking for a colour combination from a professional colour collection, like Caesarstone’s Pebbles Collection, and make a choice that is based on an expert opinion. 

Homeowners that want to find the perfect quartz countertop for their neutral kitchen can visit Caesarstone’s catalogue page for some inspirational pictures and more. Homeowners that have already begun the renovation can visit Caesarstone’s inspiration gallery for additional practical ideas to integrate into their plans. 

Homeowners that need a countertop and are interested in a neutrally coloured kitchen can consider the following tips to find the perfect look for their space.  

Benefits of Using Neutral Kitchen Colours in Residential Spaces 

Neutral and light colours are two of the best kitchen colour combinations to consider. Both bring an element of sunshine, calm and serenity to the heart of the home. 

In the kitchens of the past two decades, colours and tones have been kept very neutral. It seemed like almost every kitchen had neutral appliances, cabinets, countertops and wall treatments. 

Homeowners are a lot more expressive in the kitchen these days, which is a good thing. Most of the daily activities that happen in an individual’s home probably occur in the kitchen, so make the most of it. More recently, kitchens that give that electric white feeling are becoming popular amongst homeowners. Colours that are harmonized with graceful features are becoming popular today.  

Tips on How to Choose the Best Neutral Kitchen Colours:  

Fresh Paint and Wall Treatments: There are quite a few neutral wall colours to choose from, so homeowners should take their time when making this decision. From bright wallpaper and eye-catching tile designs to specially-crafted moldings and wood panels, there are many ways homeowners can spice up their kitchen space while still being classic and timeless. 

Faucet Colours: Kitchen faucets no longer just come in chrome. Today, faucets are available in a wide range of colours, styles and finishes. It’s incredible how much a simple faucet can add to the look and feel of a kitchen. 

Appliances for the Kitchen: Be glad that the avocado green tones from the 1970s are gone for good, but after that, many people went back to the basic whites. Thankfully, homeowners have a lot more choices now, but before getting too crazy, homeowners need to remember that a kitchen appliance is something they will have to be happy with for a long time. 

Kitchen Cabinets: If the colours of a homeowner’s kitchen cabinets are out of date, they can buy all new, or simply paint over to give a fresh, clean look. If a homeowner decides to purchase new ones, they should think it over before making a final decision. The price of brand-new cabinets is not something that should be taken lightly. 

Quartz Countertops in the Kitchen: As mentioned earlier, neutral-coloured quartz countertops, like Caesarstone’s 1001 Riverlet or 1004 Stoneburst, look great in all sorts of residential spaces, including kitchens. The subtle and clean look of these nature-inspired designs add a sense of peace, calmness, and tranquility.

Final Tips about Neutral Kitchen Colours 

Choose a small item in the home to inspire a new neutral colour scheme. This could be an artwork, a throw blanket, a colourful rug, or a decorative pillow. It is easy to decorate a whole room around the colours of an object in the kitchen. 

When doing this, all colours will become more appealing. Focusing on objects in a kitchen allows anyone to see a colour scheme that will match. 

Since this thing probably has more than one colour, a homeowner now has a ready-made colour scheme with colours that go well together. Since it’s already part of the decor, it probably goes well with other things the homeowner already has. Once a homeowner has chosen an individual item, they can go to the hardware store to find swatches that match the colours. 

If a homeowner prefers a more neutral colour, they could just choose the most neutral one. If the object that inspired them was all bright colours, they could find a more neutral colour by picking the lightest colour on one of the paint swatches they now have (most of them come with several shades of the same colour, ranging from dark to light). 

If an individual wants the walls to be darker, choose a darker shade from the swatches. Choose paint that is one shade lighter than the colour needed in a room if they want to paint it a darker colour. Colours on the walls tend to look darker than they do on swatches. This is because large areas don’t get as much light as small ones, and walls reflect some of the colours onto each other.
