Tile for the Perfect Palette

Tile is a fantastic way to bring color into your kitchen remodel. Glass, ceramic, encaustic cement, terrazzo, and more; check out our favorite examples of tile work on Instagram that bring a little something extra to your kitchen walls.

Let in the Natural Light

Your doors and windows are not only useful for bringing in natural light, but also provide an opportunity to enhance your overall design aesthetic. Add vintage charm with mullions or create an open, airy space with a modern glass door. You can also add color with a stained-glass window or door panel. A pass-through window not only provides an easy way to connect the kitchen with your outside space, but it will typically also maximize the amount of natural light being let in.

Creating a Color Scheme for Your Kitchen Remodel

Your kitchen needs a cohesive color story. There are endless options to inject color into your kitchen and many different levels of commitment to color, so you can dabble or dive all the way in. Here are some of our favorite tips for creating a timeless and vibrant kitchen.

Make a Mood Board

Test your design elements next to each other by creating a mood board. Include your color palette, metal finishes, lighting and plumbing fixtures, wood tones, and appliance colors. If you aren’t sure about your exact selections yet, gather the examples that best represent your vision.


Try Two-Toned Cabinets

Two-toned cabinets continue to trend into 2023. Using two cabinet colors in your kitchen allows you to delineate special spaces or provides accents that provide bold colors next to more neutral options. This means you can include colorful options without committing to a potentially polarizing look.

Dial-Up the Color Saturation in Monochrome

We love the subtle texture that changing the intensity of the same hue can create. Using the same color at reduced and increased saturation provides a subtle difference that adds depth and interest to any space that employs this tactic.

Invite Color into Your Tile

Many of our favorite tile selections offer options in just about any color you could desire. From glass to porcelain, encaustic cement to natural stone, tile is a fantastic opportunity to include color in your kitchen vision while staying classic. 

Colors of the Year for 2023

Many of the shades touted as colors of the year for 2023 are excellent options for your kitchen renovation color palette. A few nods to neutral are great for pairing, but most colors this year are deep, rich greens or pink-infused warmer hues. Here are the winners of the 2023 season, according to industry experts:
