What kitchen colors will be fashionable in 2021? They will be primarily inspired by nature, associated with heaven, sea, earth and the sun. Therefore, among the most important manufacturers of paints and furniture engaged in predicting color trends in the interior, there are several shades of blue, green, pink and yellow.
Among the most fashionable colors, of course, dark, muted shades of blue, chosen among the most important in the coming months, among others from the Pantone Color Institute, WGSN, Sherwin-William or PPG Paints.
In the first case, blue became one of the five key colors of 2021. Elegant and calm, but at the same time, an expressive shade is associated with the sky, which from time immemorial has been the promise of a new, better day. In 2021, the Sherwin-William brand focused on sapphire navy , as it is associated with the deep sea and the night sky.
The combination of tones of blue, black and graphite gray, although strong, is neutral and ideally combined with other colors and interior decoration styles. PPG – one of the largest manufacturers of paints in the world, named Chinese porcelain as the current color . This is due, in particular, to the sea and intricate jewelry made of Chinese porcelain cobalt-ink shade of blue.
Kitchen interiors using shades of purplish blue , classic blue , sea or Chinese porcelain are designed to help you relax, reflect, calm down and make you feel safe. To achieve this effect, it is best to paint walls or one wall in this shade, creating a color accent.
You can also choose a set of seats upholstered in these shades, or add them through accessories, paintings or carpets. It is worth remembering that they look great in combination with currently very fashionable natural materials, such as natural stone (mainly marble), metal (brass, copper, chrome steel, tin), glass (transparent and colored) and rattan, wood , leather, wool, etc.
You can also choose proven color schemes for the kitchen, for example, muted, classic interiors, navy with beige and not quite white. In bolder combinations, it is worth using dark blue with shimmering shades of gold, silver, copper, brass or tin. This underlines the elegant, timeless character of these colors. An interesting idea is to combine dark blue shades with warm, but natural shades of red, yellow, orange and pink.
Among the colors of 2021, several different shades of green appeared. In the trend for the kitchen, the shade is Back to Nature S 340-4 , which is olive-light green with warm tones obtained by the addition of bronze.

The color palette, inspired by greenery, also includes a shade of calm dawn, known as mint gray. This gentle shade of warm gray with an admixture of colors such as green and blue should remind of the morning sky and, like dawn, be a symbol of a new discovery.
Among the colors for the kitchen, there was also a Minty Fresh DE5687 shade from Dunn-Edwards, that is, cool, pastel green with clear menthol tones. WGSN also opted for color trend prediction, indicating Neo Mint’s minty, light shade as one of the five primary colors of 2021.

Another extreme is the shade of First Light pink (bright pink), which was recognized by Benjamin Moore as the color of 2021 and fits into the latest color trends. This is a vibrant pink color that refreshes and soothes at the same time thanks to its pastel color. Why did one of the largest interior paint brands focus on this color in 2021?

No less warm shade of pink with pronounced orange tones, namely cantaloupe , has become one of the key colors of 2021.
These shades for the kitchen can be considered neutral and serve as a backdrop for other colors, for example, in furniture or accessories. Colors are ideal not only for painted or clad walls, but also for the facades of kitchen furniture, wall and floor tiles. Pink shades look good in combination with metallic decorative elements, such as copper or brass. Airy and delicate fabrics, for example, very fashionable bright, semitransparent curtains reaching the ground, also perfectly emphasize their romantic character.
Pink and pastel shades should be combined with calm, muted colors such as green sage, light brown, straw, bleached yellow, as well as azure green or warm gray. You can add creamy white and bleached yellow as well as blue. In the case of apricot pink, according to experts, not only classic white, but also warm color will work in combinations, for example, orange in a shade of coral or old gold.
Yellow is the color that prevailed at the 2021 interior design exhibition. He appeared not only – as was customary for several seasons – in accessories, but also on the walls of rooms, kitchen facades and even upholstered furniture for the living room.
