simple Neutral Kitchen Design Guide Choices:

  1. For a cabinet color I chose Benjamin Moore Balboa Mist OC-27 because it’s a really pretty taupe color that’s simple, but still pairs beautifully with other neutrals.
  2. For a wall color, Benjamin Moore Glacier White OC-37 pairs beautifully with Balboa Mist, providing contrast while staying in the background.
  3. For a countertop choice I love Silestone’s Calacatta Gold quartz. It’s timeless with warm taupe undertones and a beautifully soft movement pattern.
  4. To contrast the cabinet color, a varied matte white backsplash tile in either a subway or square shape is a perfect choice. Tile Bar’s 3×8 Portmore White is a great option. Or, if you want to mix it up, you could install the tile in a vertical or horizontal stack pattern.
  5. Brushed brass hardware is a beautiful neutral finishing touch. I love the look of Emtek’s Jasper cabinet pull and Kohler’s Artifacts bridge faucet.

Adding a Twist:

If you want your neutral kitchen design to have a little bit more detail try these variations:

  1. Switch up the island color. We love the earthy tones in Benjamin Moore’s Roosevelt Taupe 1539. Or, you could go for a classic wood toned island.
  2. Add a tile inlay over the stove for some more detail. The simple taupe and cream tones in Fireclay’s Kabuki Sphere tile, in Cool or Neutral, adds a gorgeous and interesting detail.
  3. Play with the sink style. There are so many sink style choices and colors besides the standard stainless steel undermount. Above, we installed an Elkay quartz composite undermount sink in black.

Introducing the Sunlit Kitchen Project in the suburbs of Massachusetts. Our clients were dealing with a super clunky and outdated kitchen layout that just didn't flow right and was eating up way too much space. Plus, it was on the darker side and felt pretty old-school. Fixing up the layout sounded simple enough, but it definitely threw us some curveballs. However, we nailed it! We brought in this gorgeous floor-to-ceiling picture window for some killer backyard views, beside the big bay window where we moved the sink over to.
