Navy cabinets feel sophisticated paired with marble counters, while periwinkle appliances have a playful edge.
The blue colour in the home is, without exception, striking and elegant, and when located in the kitchen, the heart of every home is an even more beautiful sight. If you are considering this wonderful colour for your new kitchen, you are in a good place because Classic Blue is the colour of 2020, according to Pantone.
You can use blue in the kitchen in countless ways. It can be added by blue tones of kitchen furniture or adding small decor across kitchen surfaces. These can be lamps, featured wall, pictures, chairs, tiles etc.

There’s a various ways you can bring it into your kitchen:
1. Kitchen Cabinets

It’s important to mention that you should never pick a colour to decorate with just because it’s trendy. That being said, if you like a colour that has been deemed a Color of the Year, then it’s a good time to shop for furnishings and materials in that hue because it will be easier to find.
Take your flooring. This is not something you are going to change out every time Pantone or your favourite paint brand announces a new Color of the Year, especialy if you decide to go with tiles. So make sure you truly love it, and then go for it.
