Step away from the builder’s beige, greys, and taupes: this is your kitchen color guide for a bolder choice — navy. We’re talking about a true navy. One that isn’t too cool or warm, too blue or too grey. It’s bold but not too bold, it’s beautifully deep, and it elicits a feeling of strength with a hint of mystery. Navy is quickly becoming a new neutral, as it offers a very adaptable canvas for a wide range of design and decor. It’s a color that grows with you, not one that you’ll likely want to change as the style or trend disappears in a few years. This guide will offer our Top 3 Renovation Ideas and Top 3 Decor Ideas so that you can decide just how navy you want to go.
Add depth and unique appeal to your kitchen or bath with a shiny or matte navy blue tile. In the kitchen, a backsplash with shiny can become a beautiful showpiece. A matte tile offers a protective yet appealing backdrop that meshes well with almost any decor and design. The best thing about tiles is how easy they are to clean, and the navy color draws less attention to messes and stains (like when your preschooler has a little too much fun while helping you make dinner).
