If you’ve done your fair share of research on designing a kitchen, you’ve probably come across the term “modular kitchen.” A modular kitchen is a fancy way of describing a customizable modern kitchen. In this type of style, luxury kitchen cabinets come in a range of sizes of functions, also called “modules.” This unique design offers a wide range of flexibility in terms of cabinet layout, allowing you to make choices that are best for you and the way you use your kitchen.
Modular kitchens are very popular among those who have small kitchens or homes because they allow for so much customization, therefore allowing you to create more space. They’re also very stylish and stand out from standard-styled kitchens, as the options for layout and color design are endless. If you’re looking to douse your kitchen with a little flair, check out this list of best color coordination for modular kitchens.
Go Bright or Go Home
For those smaller kitchens, creating an illusion of space and light is extremely important to open up the room. If you have an ample supply of windows in your small kitchen, let them shine. For those who do not, you can bring light to space by choosing bright colors for your modular kitchen. Choosing an off-white or cream paired with a classic wood finish is the perfect place to start. If you’re feeling bold, you may want to experiment with yellow and white. Or, try gold and white to add the illusion of sunshine. An all-white kitchen has long been a staple kitchen design for a reason. It supplies a kitchen with the look of cleanliness and openness (all the more favorable for a small kitchen). Other great color combinations for a smaller kitchen are:
- Aquamarine & White
- Orange & White
- Magenta & White
- Lemon, Charcoal, & White
Bold colors are a great choice for a modular kitchen because they invigorate a space, which is exactly the kind of energy you want in a kitchen.
Choosing earthy colors is a great way to allow nature to fill your kitchen. This can include blues and greens, or even neutral colors like beige or grey. You may also want to experiment with different materials such as concrete or leather. Leather and white is a great earthy combo that adds a luxurious touch. Check out some leather ideas here!
Warming your Kitchen
While most people are concerned with “opening” up their kitchen with bright and white colors, you may also want to consider choosing tones and materials that will provide a sense of warmth. Natural materials, such as wood, marble, slate, and stone, are great additions to any modular kitchen. You can still achieve an open feel to a space with color, while also incorporating some of these natural materials to add some warmness and familiarity to the room as well. These materials can also help balance out any bold color choices so that the room doesn’t feel too energetic or harsh.

Blacks & Greys
You simply can’t go wrong with the standard black and white kitchen look. This color combination makes for a very classy look and can be represented in many ways. Get wild with tile work to create a vintage look, or choose a matte black paint for the cabinets and marble white countertops for a very high-class, elegant design.
Grey shouldn’t be ruled out of this category either, as they are easy on the eye and provide openness to a kitchen in the same way whites do. Why not combine them both?
