Red, white, and blue are beautiful colors – and they don’t have to be reserved just for July 4th. If you’re the patriotic type, looking to infuse your home design with some Americana, or just a fan of the bold and unique, a red, white, and blue themed kitchen is just the thing you need. Here are a few decor and design ideas for creating a stunning, patriotic kitchen theme in a variety of styles for your backsplash and countertops.
All-Out Stars and Stripes
Choose a boldly patriotic kitchen design to really make an impact. Two-toned cabinets (in either red and white or blue and white) have plenty of personality. For your countertops, granite with striking blue hues is a beautiful choice. Give your decor a nautical twist with clean, bright whites and cerulean blues. Decorate with plenty of stars and stripes.
Vintage Red, White and Blue
For that rustic Americana look, accent your kitchen with fun antiques – think stars-and-stripes cookie jars, retro light fixtures, and mason jars. Distressed white paint, reclaimed wood, and chic details in brick red and navy blue are all you need to capture a vintage patriotic theme. A wood look porcelain tile would be a great way to pull all of these elements together. Consider a funky red, white, and blue floral pattern for your barstools, unique blue cabinet hardware, or a subdued brick-style backsplash for the perfect little touch of Americana.
Go with cream-colored cabinets and refined, neutral floor tiles. Crisp white paint with a cardinal red accent wall or barstools add a burst of modern color. Add subtle personality with a subway tile backsplash in cornflower blue, gingham and striped table settings, or ceiling beams made of striking reclaimed wood. Paint the inside of glass-front cabinets bright red or royal blue.
Pair with cabinets in soft gray or pure white. A red, white, and blue backsplash adds a bold touch to an otherwise subtle look. Consider including modern accents such as a wide-striped rug in blue and white, red lighting fixtures, or a stainless-steel range hood.
