Create a brown kitchen by employing different shades of this earthy tone, ranging from sandy beige to chocolate brown. Browse pictures of brown kitchens to see how the earthen tone creates both old-world and modern kitchen designs. Find kitchen decorating ideas for introducing the comforting hue through cabinet finishes, hardwood or stone floors, travertine backsplashes, marble countertops, and paint colors. See how to enhance traditional dark brown kitchens and brown cabinets by adding stainless-steel appliances, polished-black granite or gray concrete countertops, and glass-door upper cabinets, which keep expansive blocks of brown from appearing top-heavy. Like a contemporary look? Discover kitchen designs that set slab-door cabinets and open shelves rendered in light and natural brown finishes in front of sky blue-painted walls or white tiled walls. Explore ways to create color-reverse kitchens by using milk chocolate or deep brown walls to showcase white, cream, or buttery yellow cabinets and keep interest running high with ceilings painted in a lighter shade of the wall color or in a complementary hue. Peruse our gallery of brown kitchens to see how painted barstools, patterned fabrics, and accessories in tones of lime green, lemon yellow, ruddy russets, and crimson brighten views.
