5 Unexpected Ways to Add Color to Your Smart Kitchen


If you feel your kitchen is a bit boring and could use a splash of color, then it’s high time you did something about it. Most kitchens are usually white and sterile, and that doesn’t really fit this busy and friendly space. If you want to introduce some bright and fresh color into your smart kitchen and showcase your lifestyle and personality, you can do so without spending a lot of money and time. Simply follow these tips and tricks, and you’re bound to be satisfied with the results.

Jazz up your lighting

Of course, paint is the main way of adding color to your space, but it isn’t the only one. One simple and inexpensive way to brighten up your smart kitchen is to install colorful pendant lights. You can also freshen up your old pendants by spray-painting them with a fresh coat of vibrant color.

Display some art

Unfortunately, kitchens usually don’t get a lot of artwork even though it’s an easy way to add color and charm to the space. You can always put up some contemporary paintings with modern frames, some posters or family photos. You can also frame some linen if you’re interested in a more traditional look, but a digital frame, for instance, will perfectly fit any modern smart kitchen. You can upload many fun and interesting food and family photos or abstract images.

Make a statement backsplash

Traditional kitchens usually put emphasis on the stove and other appliances, but a fun way to catch the eye and introduce some color into your kitchen is by making a statement backsplash. You can choose from many materials, styles and colors that will suit any kitchen. Not only is a glass or tile backsplash a cool way to freshen up the space, but it’s also super easy to install and clean. You can also make creative patterns with tiles, or opt for tiles in interesting shapes. Hexagon is very trendy right now in both smart and traditional kitchens.

Invest in some colorful appliances and gadgets

If you really want to make a statement, you can invest in some new and bright appliances and gadgets to introduce color into your kitchen. Companies that make appliances are getting more and more creative with the design and color scheme, so you can really find all sorts of shapes and hues. For instance, choose a statement apple red Viking refrigerator or opt for a colorful and futuristic-looking coffee machine that will instantly brighten up the space.

As you can see, refreshing your smart kitchen doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. Sometimes, all you need is a couple of statement details, a small splash of color and some greenery to achieve a completely fresh look.

Add color with accessories

Usually, people forget just what an impact the right accessories can have. Accessories are also the easiest and cheapest way to add color and personality to your kitchen. For instance, if you have a sleek metallic microwave and fridge, and monochromatic walls and cabinets, you can spruce up the space with some bright accessories such as colorful linens, bowls or water jugs.

Bring it to life with some greenery

Even though your kitchen is high-tech and full of smart appliances, it doesn’t mean you can’t have any natural elements in it. Bring some energy and color to your kitchen with a plant on your benchtop or windowsill. If you’re not a big flower person, you can plant herbs like basil or mint that will give your kitchen both a fresh smell and some living color. If you have a small kitchen, you can opt for wall-mounted planter boxes instead of big planters. Another simple way to incorporate some color into your kitchen is by displaying fruit. Use colorful bowls and fill them up with your favorite fruit.
