Navy blue is a color that is traditional and timeless, creating a sophisticated look that will remain forever tasteful when used in interior decor. Like a midnight blue sky or the waters of the deep blue sea, navy blue will add depth to any space you use it in. Similar to the color black, you can almost never go wrong with navy blue.

Blue represents both the sky and the sea, and is often associated with open spaces, imagination, and freedom. On the darker end of the spectrum, navy blue is an elegant shade, representing both balance and tranquility.

When used in your kitchen, navy blue will add a touch of drama and mystery, yet remains refreshing when paired with uplifting shades like white, silver, or tan. As a traditional color comparable to black, navy blue works well on kitchen cabinets, walls, appliances, tiles, and accessories. Navy blue is also a terrific accent color, and add the perfect amount of contrast when used on statement spaces like backsplashes or island counters

With temperatures cooling and stormy skies ahead, let's take a dive into the deep blue sea. Here are 4 Ways to Use Navy Blue in Your Kitchen.

1.) Cabinets

Navy blue is becoming a more popular color choice for kitchen cabinets, looking sophisticated with either a matte or gloss finish. Navy blue cabinets pair elegantly with marble countertops, yet also work well with either polished or rustic wooden accents. Pair navy blue cabinets with coordinating white or gray subway tiles for a classic contrast that will always be complimentary.

Thinking of hardware? Navy blue cabinets can pull off almost any metallic tone, from silver, gold, copper, or bronze (and anything in between).


2.) Walls

Looking for the perfect pop of color for your kitchen accent wall? Navy blue walls simply ooze sophistication, pairing well with white cabinets to create a timeless and classic look. Navy blue walls also work well with wooden and metallic accents, creating a clash of contrast that is pleasing to the senses.

Looking to add a pop of color to your color? Try adding bright accessories in colors like canary yellow, burnt orange, or a vibrant green.


3.) Center Island Counter

Your island counter can become the star of your kitchen, being the space where you gravitate naturally to do everything from prep work to sharing a cup of coffee. Its also the perfect space to add a splash of color, creating instant contrast when the surrounding cabinets are kept neutral. Use navy blue on your center island counter to instantly add depth to your kitchen.


4.) Backsplash

Your backsplash can take your kitchen to the next level, adding instant personality and texture to your favorite space. Use navy blue tiles to create a nautical mosaic, using different shades of blue to represent the various colors of the sea. Or keep it traditional with colored subway tiles or honeycomb tiles, contrasted with bright white cabinets and rich metallic accents.
