Yellow kitchens are the happiest (and most lucrative) kitchens

A few weeks ago, I listened to a Young House Love podcast that mentioned an article about how yellow kitchens bring in more money when it’s time to sell than white kitchens. Being a big fan of yellow kitchens myself, this was great news (and you can read the article about kitchen color here). The ideal shade was a creamy or wheat-colored yellow.

But I wonder, how many people dare to have a colored kitchen anymore? Lately I think people feel pressure to do white for resale or to “fit in” or to choose something that won’t have to be updated in a few years.

A few weeks ago I posted on Instagram the yellow tile we’ll be installing in our kitchen. I know it’s bright, and I know it’s bold, but it’s happy. I hope we’ll love it for a long time to come.

Would you paint your kitchen a color besides white? If so, what color? How does yellow strike you? •

  1. Very fun post! I love yellow and how happy it is. The yellow island, the yellow tile, the backs of the cupboards that are yellow, and the pantry door are all great ideas!
