The color pink has taken over the world of kitchen design. Whether it’s cerise, rose, or blush, a kitchen with a characterful pink hue will not go out of style.
Pink has many associations. In Japan, the cherry blossoms signal the arrival of spring. It is a color that represents celebration, hope, rebirth, and natural beauty. Pink is associated with love, romance, femininity, and fertility in the West. But this color has many other meanings.
The color pink is often found in gemstones such as rose quartz, tourmaline, and topaz. It is also used to embellish jewelry and to create bouquets. This beautiful color scheme is a riot of brilliant tones that can be used with anything.
Kitchen trends are awash with pink room ideas. We predict that they will be here to stay.
It is not surprising that this color has experienced a renaissance. Pink kitchen ideas are explored playfully. We also talk to interior and kitchen designers who can provide advice on the many ways you can use this color.
Commit to painting all the walls pink.
Helen Parker is deVOL’s Creative Director, and her Kitchen Walls have been painted in pink. Parker says that it is best to paint the entire room in pink rather than just an accent wall.
She says: “Accent walls are always seen as a way of dipping your toe into something rather than being bold. There is no better decor and design method than to commit yourself to a style rather than giving it just a cameo. Pink is a color that many people wear or purchase as a cushion. However, having the walls or kitchen cabinets in pink is uncommon. It’s seen as girly or something to avoid, but it’s far from it.
Parker is committed to using soft pinks in her kitchen. She has painted her ceiling and all her walls in this color. Parker describes it as ” stylish’ and ‘understated.’ This gentle pink color creates warmth and a soft feel in the kitchen. It is a great backdrop for a variety of colors and patterns.
Included are emerald-green tiles, navy blue, black, and white floor tiles with natural wood tones, white window frames, and pottery. Lighting and brass accents, from the pans and hooks to the pottery.
INCORPORATE PINK FEATURE TILES
Please do not feel obligated to cover your entire kitchen in pink. Consider adding this color to your kitchen through splashbacks or feature tiles if you want to dabble in it. This smaller pink area will add texture and softness to your kitchen subtly.
The center of this kitchen is a stylish, two-toned, pink-tiled unit. This clever pairing of two different pinks in the tiles adds subtlety to the design. The featured tiles are a versatile color that enhances the soft tones of the wood floor, chairs, and cabinets. The pink color is a great way to soften the dark worktops and backsplash, and it enhances the subtle shades of the light fixtures. It completely changes the feel and look of the room.
SOFT KITCHEN WITH A BLUSH TONE
In my early days of design, I did not like pink. In 25 years, it has become one of my favorite unexpected splashes in design. I prefer blush tones over overt pink. I like colors with a subtle hint of color. A touch of blush is appealing to both the eye and palate. The blush undertones add warmth, softness, and balance to this kitchen.
The pink color in this kitchen, designed by Jennifer Welch, is almost nonexistent. However, it is still present, adding warmth and sophistication to the kitchen.
Match with a CONTRASTING COLOR in a Smaller Kitchen
Many people choose an all-white design for their kitchen when they have a small room. They believe that this will make it appear larger. It is not always the case. Using bolder colors to create depth and interest in a smaller space can be a good idea.
Consider adding a lighter shade above the darker one and on the ceiling to make the room feel taller. Combining dark shades with pink is a great idea. Smoky blacks or greys, rich blues, and dark greens are all beautiful.

PINK AS NEUTRAL – USE PINK
Today, pink is used to replace white or beige in rooms. Its warmth and natural tone make it a great choice for defining a space.
Ben Burbidge is the managing director of Kitchen Makers. He says: “Traditionally, people have been more conservative in their kitchen design and color selections, believing that they must stick to lighter colors.” Over the last few years, we’ve seen more color in the kitchen. The trend is even more daring this year with the use of pink as a neutral. This subtle shade softens a room’s overall appearance, making it more inviting and warm.
Add thoughtful and stylish finishing touches to your design by adding handles, textiles, and ceramics, as well as backsplashes.
Two bold colors in contrast
You should choose a color that you will be happy with for many years to come. You might also consider the decorative potential for certain color combinations. Not all colorful ideas are suitable for every room, depending on size, composition, and orientation.
In a traditionally designed kitchen, contrasting two bold colors will create a modern feel. Pink can be paired with many bold colors and dark shades. Here, you can see how blue works well.
A vibrant shade of blue paired with a soft pink tone creates an aesthetic that is playful and friendly.
Both colors go well with wood and marble. Choosing one type of hardware for all cabinetry brings the colors together.
Use complementary pinks in one scheme
The 18th-century French court was a place where pink was a very popular color. It inspired the wealthiest and most influential people to use it in fashion, art, and decorative arts. Pink was the color of choice for those who were at the top of society, including royalty, aristocrats, and social elites.
Pink is a universal color and not just for girls. Use a range of pinks in your design scheme. They will complement each other. You can add some disrupter colors with furniture, artwork, and paintings to complete the design.
Merlin Wright, the design director of Plain English, agrees that pink is a color or tint that can be used in many color schemes.
‘Tonal Pinks can be a good complement to a natural palate of greys and browns. For example, this scheme, where the island has been painted in Farrow & Ball Sulking Room Pink, looks great with the warm oak flooring and the white cabinets painted in Mash. The green stools are painted in Pretty Pickle to add a dash of color.
