The 40 Most Comforting Blue Kitchens We've Ever Seen

You've never seen your favorite color quite like this before.

Behr Paint

It's the color of the sky and of the ocean, which is likely why there's something innately tranquil about the color blue—and why it's such a natural hue for the heart and hearth of the home. Navy cabinets feel sophisticated paired with marble counters, while periwinkle appliances have a playful edge. Or you could upholster a banquette in azure, or tile your floors in ultramarine. In each of these 40 blue kitchens, the shade is used in smart, innovative and deeply comforting ways. It's a blue mood, but in a good way.

Blue Wainscoting Kitchen

KitchenLab Design | Rebekah Zaveloff Interiors created this deep navy kitchen bar inspired by the night sky (note the star-patterned backsplash).

Toile Blue Wallpaper Kitchen

This kitchen by Sarah Wittenbraker is in a poolhouse, so it makes good sense to make a splash. (Ba dum dum...) Glossy blue cabinetry is a playful contrast to sometimes stodgy toile.
