Yellow Kitchen Cabinets | Magnetic Personality


Years ago it seemed as if color in the kitchen was for the walls and accent pieces, not the cabinets. Today, we’re embracing color everywhere we turn, even on kitchen cabinets. A brave soul stepped away from the comfort zone and showed us the power in going bold with a touch of color. According to HGTV, “Vibrant Kitchens are happy kitchens- and a new hue is just about the easiest way to zest up your space.” There is something magnetic about a kitchen that is yellow, do you agree?

Happiness & Positivity

According to Houzz, “yellow is associated with happiness, exuberance and positivity, yellow is an excellent color choice for the kitchen. Since yellow reflects a large amount of visible light compared to other colors, it’s best to limit brighter shades of attention-getting hue to small doses and materials that you really want to stand out.” Yellow cabinets in a kitchen would compliment the food and creates light for working and atmosphere.

For color inspiration go for a tone that reminds you of your favorite fruit such as bananas, pineapple, or lemons. You can also look for inspiration in your favorite flowers, such as sunflowers, lemon basil, and yellow daffodils. Imagine an eclectic kitchen with bursts of Sunny Jonquil (Valspar) on the kitchen cabinets, paired with solid countertops and open shelving units. Could you cook in this space?
