If you’re overwhelmed by all your choices, then check out the rainbow of design ideas below. It’s amazing what the perfect color of low-voc paint can accomplish. The right color shines through brighter than anything, meaning less design work on your part when it comes to hardware and building.
- Country white: A charmingly classic play kitchen design.
- Baby blue: So adorable and as you can see the official kitchen paint color does the play kitchen some major justice.
- Pink flowers: The sweetness of this DIY play kitchen comes from a big splash of pink flowers highlighted by more pink of course.
- Shiny red: This luscious and shiny red kitchen would be a young chef’s dream.
- Buttercup yellow: You cannot go wrong with a creamy shade of yellow when it comes to play kitchens.
- Green forest: This green play kitchen goes above and beyond with darling forest features.
- “Manly” blue: An awesome color scheme for your little fella.
- Bright orange: Orange is a great kid color and goes well with tons of play food and dish accessories.
- Deep purple: Purple was my fave color as a kid. Sadly, my play kitchen was blue – I would have loved this one.
- Soothing gray: Gray is an awesome color – especially when accented with cream and red like this play kitchen.
- Old school brown: Honestly, you don’t normally think of too much brown when it comes to play kitchens. In this case it’s so 70s retro that it works. All it needs is some orange shag carpet!
- Rainbow kitchen: Of course, you can always throw in a whole rainbow of colors.
