If you’re thinking of something different for your kitchen design, then think pink. A pink kitchen is a sure fire way to inject a boost of positivity and personality into an interior scheme. If you’re into brights then a hot pink backsplash could bring the colour blast you crave; for quieter tastes there are beautiful pastel pink kitchen cabinets that look divine finished with a white marble worktop. You can also easily add pink to an existing kitchen installation by introducing pink appliances and pink kitchen accessories, or even just a lick of blush paint. Here are 51 tips and tricks to make your kitchen design look rosy.

Turn up the contrast. If your kitchen is going to be on show in an open plan scheme then you might as well make it pop. The light pink kitchen units and pink wall decor in this space sits atop black base units and black floor for a high contrast result.

Add in drama with dark cabinets. When we first think of a pastel kitchen we might think of an ultra light and airy space, but pastel pink kitchen units look just as good when teamed with black or grey cabinets and decor. The raw wood dining table situated within this L-shaped kitchen arrangement helps bring a quiet balance between the two ends of the colour spectrum.

Give it just hint. It’s possible to find a hint of pink in white paints, greys and beige to bring just a delicate note of rosiness to a room. This simplistic interior layout is based on the traditional Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi. The idea centres around the acceptance of transience and imperfection, which can be translated as rustic understated elegance and aged beauty.

Balance out bold colour. These bright flamingo pink kitchen cabinets make a wild wall of colour, and yet the overall scheme still comes across as well tamed. A marble backsplash and countertop add sophistication to the arrangement. A black dining table and plush grey fabric dining chairs take the colour scheme down a couple of notches.

Use reflection to colour your cabinets. This inspirational kitchen design shows how you can introduce a subtle pink glow just by reflecting pink flooring or a pink kitchen rug off glossy white surfaced units.
Wood tone and pink are a match made in heaven. The softest, subtlest pink units and kitchen island bring just a hint of warmth to this white decor, and work in perfect harmony with the warmth of the wood herringbone floor.

Go tropical. Push your pink feature wall into the bright coral end of the spectrum and team it with fresh green accents to create a totally tropical taste.
Take your pink scheme to new heights with a pink painted ceiling. This effect works particularly well in rooms with a lofty ceiling height as adding colour up high can help the space appear warmer. Beware painting a low ceiling in strong colour as the effect can be overbearing and make your room feel smaller.
