Blue and brown kitchens

Continuing to inspire you for your next kitchen makeover, this time we’re talking about a very unusual color scheme that isn’t usually seen everywhere: blue and brown. Why is it an unusual color scheme? Because warm and cool tones aren’t typically confused in a room, many homeowners skip this idea, despite a modern approach saying they’re cool. How do you properly pull these colors together?


Blue and brown isn’t just about rocking blue and brown cabinets – you can opt for a more interesting idea. You can opt for blue cabinets with richly stained wood countertops – this is your helping of brown to complement the scheme and a wood hood and/or backsplash continues the combination. You can also use vintage copper as a shade of brown – choose a copper sink or backsplash, or opt for brick walls in combination with blue cabinets – for brownish brick colors. It’s quite difficult to work with this color scheme. So if you want to add other colors, classic white or black is a good idea – the first to freshen up the room, and the second to add some graphic details.

Choose the style for your kitchen and work from it. For example, if you’ve decided on a farmhouse or vintage style, rocking deep blue or light blue cabinets with stained wood countertops is a good idea. Add brass, copper or gold and your kitchen will be super chic. If you want to get quirky, you can try natural wooden cabinets and light blue appliances – a fridge, a stove and others. A modern country kitchen can be outfitted with blue cabinets, white countertops and brown brick walls and a backsplash. Check out more ideas below and get inspired!
