Bring yellow kitchen decor ideas into your space for a brighter and fresher home.
Many people are completely comfortable using yellow for those much-needed pops of color, but not as comfortable using yellow decor as the main color. That’s a darn shame. Yellow has a enough personality to be the star of any room in the house, and especially in the kitchen.
Yellow Kitchen Decor Ideas for Making Yellow the Star of Your Kitchen
1. Yellow Walls
Think outside the kitchen for yellow walls. The key is choose the right yellow for your space. Let your decor style guide you in your choice of wall color. A brighter canary yellow might work better for a more retro kitchen, while a soft buttery yellow might work better for a more contemporary styled kitchen.
Another favorite yellow kitchen decor ideas is to choose a patterned yellow wallpaper to be the focal point of the room. If you aren’t sure about the allover wallpaper impact in the kitchen, choose one wall as a accent wall that can act as the dramatic focal point.

One way to control color in any room is to utilize color combinations and it’s the same for the kitchen. For a really bold look, combine bright yellow walls with bright pink accents. For a more calming combination, consider a soft yellow table and chairs with pastel turquoise walls. Think about what other colors you like with yellow and how you could incorporate those combinations in your kitchen.
