5 Ways to Incorporate Pantone’s Color of the Year into Your Kitchen

Going all the way? Why don’t you do the next tip as well.
2. Have select towels, dishes and other decor accents to reflect the Pantone color.
If you have a trendy coral hue as the color of a statement piece, you can let this inspire you to have an entire kitchen facelift, without going as far as the whole renovation. Swap your hand towels, dishes and other small kitchen appliances all to match your new colors.
3. Paint an accent wall.
Nothing beats converting a wall into a coral hue to make a statement. Do this and notice an instant energy lift to your kitchen space.
4. If you’re not ready, paint a piece of furniture.
A wall might be too much for starters. So try using decorative chalk paint on a piece of furniture like a bar stool or a dining table. Who knows? You might like it!
5. Incorporate it into your kitchen countertop.
Is your kitchen countertop due for an upgrade or replacement? If you are into the color as much as you love seeing it everyday, you can incorporate it into a more permanent place - your countertops! Terrazzo countertops, a composite consisting of chips of natural materials, is making a comeback in 2019. Terrazzo comes in a multitude of colors and can really add a bold punch of color!
