Whether you’re envisioning a chic, high-contrast palette or a subtle pop of color, these beautiful blue kitchen ideas are sure to inspire.

Navy Kitchen Ideas

Navy blue kitchen ideas provide elegant options for many kitchen styles. Navy cabinets provide a softer neutral than black to pair with marble-look white quartz countertops for a crisp, clean look.

Navy and Gray Kitchen with Torquay Matte Countertops

This beach cottage kitchen is an Instagram favorite for good reason. Rich navy blue kitchen cabinets and open shelving (Cosmos, Waterworks) pair with Torquay Matte™ countertops for chic contrast and refined coastal style. Along with the Cambria Matte® finish countertops, a pale gray peninsula (Decoy, Waterworks) and oak flooring add to the airy feel. See the transformation of this blue kitchen reno from Will Taylor in our before-and-after story.

Ideas for Kitchens with Blue Accents

Not sure if you’re ready to commit to a blue kitchen, or just prefer smaller doses of color? Blue accents like tile, light fixtures, seating, and even appliances can be an easy and affordable way to experiment with the hue or add a vibrant pop.

Modern Kitchen with Inverness Gold Quartz Countertops and Blue Backsplash Tile

The veins are debossed to contrast with the smooth surface, creating a wonderfully organic design with a gently textured appeal. The gold in the countertops pairs perfectly with the cabinet hardware and is a complementary choice for the glazed Zellige blue tile backsplash.
