Kitchen Inspiration: Moody Blues


The sky’s the limit when designing for a new kitchen. Whether you go bright and colorful or calm and muted, there are endless options to choose from. In fact, we’ve got a whole catalog put together that can show you just how many options you have.

But starting with the catalog might be a bit overwhelming if you haven’t thought through just what you’re looking for yet. Throwing together a few quick mood boards can help get your thoughts out and let you focus your desires for your new kitchen. The deep, moody blue of this mood board is not only cozy, but bright and welcoming, too.

A splash of color

In terms of kitchen color trends, accents have really been taking off lately. Coloring a kitchen in calm, neutral tones like beige and then adding a pop of color, like the deep blue seen on these cabinets. This way you get the benefits of neutral, light colors like cleanliness and spacity without sacrificing the fun colors you want to show off.

Rustic kitchen designs

The deep blue and silver trimmings have a very rustic look about them. Kitchen designs are unique in that both rustic and modern designs are able to trend with equal popularity at the same time. So while many homes have been opting for sleek, modern looks, the more cozy and rustic colors and designs of years gone by are just as common.

Just picture how nice these deep colors would look against traditional copper cookware or matte-black faucets!

You can use our handy design tool to play around with some of the other kitchen details on your mind to get an idea for how they’ll look together. Maybe you prefer gold cabinet handles? Or a lighter shade of blue? The options are limitless.

The kitchen is truly the heart of your home, and we want to make sure you get it right. At Kitchen Tune-Up, our teams stay with you every step of the way, starting with the idea phase.
