It’s safe to say that pink is one of the most evocative colors in the spectrum. Even in nature, the pop of pink from a flower or a sunset instantly sets itself apart from the other earth tones in the scene. Pink is also one of the most versatile colors, ranging from soft sandy neutrals to bold bubblegum pink.
Today we’re setting our sights on pink kitchen ideas, with advice on where to incorporate the color in your kitchen, which shades work best, and plenty of inspiration along the way.
What Style Kitchen Works with Pink?
Not to cop out with a non-answer, the truth is that because of pink’s many personalities, it’s a color that works with nearly every design style.
Something a little more saturated is well suited for a mid-century kitchen design.
And at the far end of the spectrum, a hot pink will truly make a contemporary kitchen come alive.
What Color Goes With Pink in Kitchens?
Pink and Green
From roses to the runway, pink and green are a perfect match and in interior design, it’s no different. Because they sit directly opposite one another on the color wheel, green balances pink perfectly.
Pink and White
White really goes with every color and pink is no exception. White kitchens with pops of pink let the color stand out without overpowering the room.
On the other hand, white appliances in a mostly pink kitchen offer refreshing accents against the warm motif of pink.
Off-whites and creams are also excellent colors to pair with pink, picking up on the neutral gradient where the softest pinks leave off.
Pink and Pink
Maybe the best color to pair with pink is more pink! Pairing one shade of pink with another stronger or softer shade brings cohesion to the kitchen without overpowering the space with a single note of pink.
Where to Feature Pink in the Kitchen
Pink Kitchen Floors
A pink kitchen provides all the color and personality of pink while also allowing you all the benefits of a white kitchen as well.
Because of the sheer square footage, pink floor holds its own as a standalone accent but can also be matched with other elements of the kitchen like the backsplash.
Pink Kitchen Cabinets
Pink cabinets are one of the easiest and most affordable ways to make a big impact on your kitchen. With a can of paint and a day of work, you can have pink cabinetry that pops whether you add pink elsewhere or not.
Pink Kitchen Backsplashes
The backsplash is the true showpiece of the kitchen and one of the best places to turn your kitchen pink. Not only will your color choice make a statement, Tile offers an array of pattern and texture choices to take your design to the next level.
Pink Kitchen Countertops
Countertops might be the most tone-setting surface in the kitchen and if you're sure you want that tone to be pink, counters might be the best place to begin.
There are many options out there to achieve attention-grabbing pink countertops in your kitchen. Granite, quartz, solid surface material, porcelain, and of course ceramic tile are all available in varied shades of pink.
Pink Kitchen Accent Walls
Like cabinets, a pink-painted accent wall is an easy way to feature the color at an affordable cost. It is also less of a commitment since a single wall may feature less prominently than all of your kitchen cabinets.
At the same time, a pink tiled wall in a small kitchen does make a major statement.
An accent door is also an easy way to introduce pink to your kitchen without diving too deep.
Pink Kitchen Accessories
The lowest barrier of entry to adding a splash of pink to your kitchen is with appliances, furniture, and accessories.
Pink pendant lights, a pink standup mixer or toaster, pink tableware on open shelves, pink kitchen towels, or even a fresh arrangement of pink flowers will all add an element of pink to your kitchen without making major investments or permanent installations.
If you like what you see, you can always add more pink later with paint, tile, or countertops.
