Design a Kitchen in the Millennial Color Palette

The color trends for 2022 are already out, and what do you know, the millennial color palette is on top of it. If you’re not sure what this means, let’s take a look! The colors in the millennial palette are anything but traditional. If you’re looking to design a kitchen that will be popular for the next decade (or more), then the millennial color palette is perfect for you. The colors are trendy, but not too bright or harsh on your eyes. And they can work in any style of kitchen.


Millennials are the largest, most diverse generation of all time and they’re taking over the world! One of their favorite things? Designing kitchens in their favorite color palette: millennial pink. This blog post will explore how to use these trendy colors when designing your kitchen so that it matches your style – no matter if you’re a millennial or not!

Millennial Colors

When it comes to the millennial color palette, there are three colors that reign supreme: pink, blue, and green. Each one has its own unique set of benefits and drawbacks, so let’s take a closer look at each one.


  • Millennial pink is cheerful and optimistic, but can also come across as juvenile or too sweet. It pairs well with white cabinets and natural materials, giving your kitchen a warm and inviting feeling.
  • Blue is the color of the ocean and the sky, making it perfect for kitchens that want to feel like they’re part of nature. It’s also calming and can help you focus when you’re cooking. Pair it with white or light gray cabinets to really make it stand out.
  • Green is the perfect color for people who want a natural and earthy feeling in their kitchen. It’s also calming, like blue, and can be great for kitchens with a lot of windows to let in light. Try pairing it with dark wood cabinets for a modern twist.
  • White is a classic color that goes well with any other color, making it the perfect choice for anyone who can’t decide on a palette. It’s also versatile and can be used in traditional or modern kitchens.


Millennials are heavy on nostalgia from their youth, which means bright and bold 80s-90s palettes full of neons with zany patterns also tend to resonate well.

Millennials are a generation that likes things to be simple and easy. They’re not looking for flashy colors, patterns, or loud patterns – they want the basics in their homes without any fuss! This means muted palettes with soft greys or whites will make them happy too. If you want to design your kitchen in a millennial style, we recommend going with white or gray cabinets because they provide a beautiful, blank canvas for you to get creative with!

Other Considerations

Once you’ve decided on the color palette for your kitchen, it’s time to start choosing appliances and fixtures. If you want to go all out with the millennial look, choose appliances that match the colors in your kitchen. For pink, try a stove or oven with rosy tones. For blue, choose an ice-blue refrigerator. And for green, go with something foresty like a dark tree trunk to hold your appliances in place!

Example of a millennial color scheme


If you don’t want to commit to color-matched appliances and fixtures (that can be crazy expensive), then pick ones that have a metallic finish. Rose gold and copper are two of the most popular choices right now, and they both look great with millennial colors.


Last but not least, don’t forget about lighting! LED light bulbs come in all sorts of different colors these days, so you can pick one that matches your kitchen perfectly. They’re also more energy-efficient than traditional light bulbs, so you can feel good about using them.
