Here, we’re going to prove how versatile the color blue can be with 21 magnificent designs that can completely transform your kitchen.

Classic Blue Kitchen With Built-In Appliances

Narrow kitchen with compact storage

Our first pick is this small, homey blue kitchen. It follows a standard kitchen layout with a neat feature that is built into the design.

The design incorporates your kitchen appliances into their own compartments, keeping them out of the way. This also allows you to move more freely around the kitchen.

For lighting, this kitchen uses light strips on the counter for an elegant backlit effect.

This youthful blue kitchen also optimizes its space with built-in appliance compartments. You can neatly fit a stove and oven seamlessly into this interior.

A lighter and brighter blue color scheme makes your kitchen look more refreshing. The white counters and light wood only help liven up this aesthetic.

The counter is also a space-efficient structure with one end modified to seat one person. You can comfortably enjoy a cup of tea in here before you’re out and about for the day.

L-shaped kitchen with wine storages

On the other hand, this sophisticated powder blue interior keeps a beverage cooler in its cupboard area.

This design is ideal for wine connoisseurs and the average wine lover. You allow one area to display your finest bottles while you keep your other drinks chilled. 

Of course, you don’t have to limit this layout to just storing wine. It’s also great for keeping your other beverages close by!

Mosaic Tiled Backsplash

Wall-Mounted Wooden shelves

Now, we’re hopping over to a warm blue kitchen with a unique design. It uses a deeper shade of blue and contains bright wooden elements.

Your eyes go straight to the backsplash with a visually appealing mosaic design. The varying shades add depth and character to this simple space.

Play into this lively design by adding more fun and colorful decorative pieces!

Beadboard Backdrop

Here, we have a cozy, cottage-inspired kitchen that subtly accentuates its vertical space with beadboard wall panels.

The beadboards of this design serve as the backdrop of the stove area and the open storage on the counter. It’s a cheeky yet subtle way to incorporate style into the space. 

We also shouldn’t overlook the space-efficient island with shelf storage on one of its sides– a perfect place to keep your cookbooks and magazines in.

Yellow Accent Storage

This modern vibrant kitchen can’t help but make you cheerful with its design. Yellow is complementary to blue, so it’s only natural that it works so well in this space!

Enhance your blue interior with fantastic pops of color as seen in this kitchen design. Bright yellow shelves integrate into the aesthetic beautifully without overwhelming the place.

I love how the posh dark blue chairs add character and texture to the space.

Delicate Wallpaper

Now, let’s tone things down with this refined pale blue kitchen. The dainty wallpaper establishes the design and blends into the rest of the interior nicely.

The subtle pattern breaks up the monotony of the space and makes sure the kitchen isn’t too ashy. 

Keeping the space really light and with minimal contrast will also make it appear and feel more spacious.

Space-Optimized Kitchen Island

This inviting contemporary dusty blue space fuses two functions into one area. You get a kitchen space and a place to dine in with the large counter.

The kitchen counter doesn’t only host a sink and a spacious countertop it also doubles as a structure fit for storage.

I find that kitchen islands and counters consume most of the space in the kitchen so maximizing them to allow for more storage is an efficient space-saving hack!

In another charming blue kitchen, we can see a subway-tiled backsplash and lovely herringbone flooring.

However, the most notable feature has to be the space-efficient island with storage on multiple facets. You can organize your kitchen items around this structure and keep them within reach when you’re cooking.

Optimizing your kitchen islands for storage is such a clever way to maximize the amount of space they take up.

Blue Kitchen With Skylights

Brighten up your kitchen without putting too many light fixtures. For example, this lovely blue kitchen has a little skylight on its slanted ceiling to illuminate the space.

The sunlight showcases the blue interior impeccably, also adding warmth to the wooden features.

I adore the pair of wall-mounted lamps that can also help give the kitchen a glow when the sun’s out.

Skylights can also enhance a modern and elegant kitchen. This space has two windows to make the room extra bright.

You can peek out one window to get a glimpse of the outdoors while you’re by the sink and the other one will make sure your counterspace is well-lit.

The island could also benefit from a couple of pendant lights to accentuate the space.

Space-Efficient Pullout Bin Storage

This productive kitchen counter keeps a neat storage function with its cabinets. With one pull, you easily get access to several trash bins which can help you segregate your trash or sort your kitchen items.

Aside from the bins, this kitchen has multiple storage spaces, including a hefty cabinet on top of the counter.

It’s smart to keep garbage bins by the preparation space so you can directly dispose of your biodegradable waste. After, you just have to push, and voila! you’re back to a neat kitchen.

Gray Backsplash And Clear Glass Cabinets

In this luxurious kitchen, elegance meets rustic charm. The blue interior uses refined cabinetry and an urban design element with a gray brick-look backsplash.

Proudly display your kitchenware instead of keeping them hidden behind cupboards by using glass doors! The storage also has lights installed to showcase its contents.

I appreciate how they fit in a small dining set so you can enjoy a meal in here too!

Colorful Galley Kitchen

Wide Window And Chandelier

In my experience, adding intricately detailed carpets contributes to the aesthetic and serves as a cozy place your pets can lie down in.

Classic Retro Kitchen

If all the modern designs are not your cup of tea, you can keep things simple and easy with a reliable retro aesthetic like this one.

The classic checkered floors take you back in time and you can never go wrong with the classic cabinetry.

The wicker elements complement this aesthetic amazingly. I also recommend getting sheer curtains to manage the amount of light the big windows let in.

Blue And Brown Interior

The dark brown adds a pleasing contrast to this kitchen. Additionally, the design of the island and marble countertops exude luxury.
