Yellow Kitchen Design Ideas

These yellow kitchens are sunny, warm, and calming. From bold yellow to muted cream, you'll find a shade of yellow here that will help your kitchen develop a sunny personality.


    Everything in this slideshow

    • Muted Yellow Kitchen

      Warm and casual, these yellow-painted cabinets feature a softness of hue that allows them to stretch from floor to ceiling without overwhelming the observer. Brown granite countertops and hardwood floor temper the yellow with earthy tones. Bronze hardware marries the two colors with simple round shapes. Displaying a collection of brown and cream-color pottery with organic motifs adds interest without clashing with the primary color.

    • Kitchen with Yellow Walls

      With its scullery-style white cabinets and open shelving stacked with white dishes, this kitchen hearkens back to early 20th-century kitchen design. Buttery yellow walls make all the difference, adding a warm, modern glow to the hard-working room. Dramatic black accents, such as the countertops; liner tiles in a white-tile backsplash; and window mullions and frame bring drama to the light, bright space. A black-painted brick floor grounds the room with its solid presence.

    • Celery Green and Yellow

      Soft yellow walls and pastel green cabinets with the look of age partner beautifully in this cottage-style kitchen. The cabinets feature beaded-board detailing, turned legs on the peninsula, and added molding to the door and drawer fronts. Tone-on-tone mosaic tiles create a beautiful beige backsplash that melts into the beige granite countertop. Brown barstools and an oil-rubbed bronze faucet offer dramatic darks against the mostly pastel background.

    • Arts and Crafts-Style Kitchen

      This cozy kitchen combines yellow-painted cabinetry, white subway tiles, and a white farm sink to create a charming early-20th-century persona. Mission-style shelves mounted on sturdy corbels work well for displaying colorful vintage pottery, which pops against pale yellow walls.

    • Kitchen with Yellow Tile

      Rich, earthy colors accentuate this kitchen's unfitted English farmhouse feel. Buttery-yellow beveled-brick tiles comprise a backsplash that stretches from countertop to crown molding, creating a warm backdrop for barely gray Shaker-style cabinets. Woven area rugs soften pine floors, while handsome striped fabrics dress the windows. Bright yellow seat cushions pop against a green-painted island topped with zinc; the island makes the large kitchen's work triangle manageable.

    • Traditional Yellow Kitchen

      Everything in this kitchen says traditional, from the furniture-style cabinets to the toile wallpaper and white ironware on display in open shelves. Yellow paint allows the cabinet details to shine: elaborate crown molding, raised panel doors and drawer fronts, and faux muntins over seeded glass insets. The island, which resembles an antique desk, anchors the room with its rich wood construction. A red-patterned Oriental rug calls attention to the red figures in the toile while offering a splash of color on the floor.

    • Pale Yellow Cottage Kitchen

      Dark wood countertops add a dramatic touch in a kitchen that's sheathed in pale yellow. Almost a neutral, the yellow paint allows the texture of the beaded-board paneling to play a major role in the kitchen's design. Strongly veined marble adds an organic presence to a room ruled by lines. Above the sink, a vibrant painting draws together the room's colors with dabs of red and green that make it a focal point.

    • Dramatic Yellow Kitchen

      Brilliant yellow cabinets give this classic kitchen a charisma, especially when paired with a backsplash that features tiles with a yellow harlequin pattern that dances from side to side. Upper cabinets boast natural wood construction, with specialty glass inserts that partially obscure the pretty green and white dishes on display. Black granite countertops add drama, while a wide-planked hardwood floor offers an heirloom sensibility to a clearly contemporary room.

      Farmhouse Fresh Kitchen

      Part of a 150-year-old home, this restored kitchen features creamy white-painted stock cabinets teamed with buttery yellow walls and black stone countertops and backsplashes. An old-fashioned farmhouse sink also adds to the period ambience. Drawer pulls and knobs in the same silverfinish add a luxury look to the DIY project. Glass-front cabinet doors make it possible to display a fresh assortment of dishes in green, white, and other pastels.

      Double Color Kitchen Cabinets

      Despite the presence of an eight-burner range and stainless-steel hood sized to match, this pro-amenity-packed kitchen presents an old-fashioned cheeriness thanks to a yellow-and-white color palette. Upper cabinets are white with yellow interiors (all the better to display contents). Lower cabinets combine white face frames and yellow center panels. Yellow marble sheaths the baking center's countertop, while butcher block adds its own warm glow to work stations elsewhere in the room.

      Yellow Goes Contemporary

      Fashionable tones of yellow and gray give this contemporary kitchen a glowing personality. Modular cabinets feature glossy surfaces of intense yellow, tempered by gray slab countertops. A mosaic tile backsplash circles the room, mingling yellow and gray tiles to tie the color scheme together. The lower cabinets, range hood, and island boast stained wood that warms up the sleek surfaces used throughout the rest of the room.

      Pop of Yellow Kitchen

      Yellow birch cabinets with a distressed finish make a colorful statement against walls of white subway tile. Adding black slab countertops and hardware guarantees that this period-style kitchen makes a strong style statement. Although neutral in color, the chimney hood's shapely silhouette makes it and the commercial-style range beneath a focal point.

      Sunny Yellow Kitchen

      Instead of replacing the cabinets to get a new look, paint does the trick here. The cabinets were sanded, coated with an oil-base primer, and finished with two coats of semigloss latex enamel. The color brightens the room, and the enamel finish is easy to clean. Open shelves make a perfect spot for displaying ironware. Sheathing the island in white beaded-board paneling makes it a gracious focal point in a warm, homey room.

      Buttery Yellow Kitchen

      Old-fashioned looks, such as the embossed stainless steel above the range and the beaded-board ceiling and island base, form the basis for a warm and inviting intimacy in this period-inspired kitchen. But it's the buttery yellow paint that makes this kitchen a standout.
