Yellow Cabinets for a Cottage Style Kitchen
Back when I was younger and just married, I thought every kitchen should either have yellow cabinets or blue. I chose blue for my first home but I sure do like this sunny yellow paint color in a cottage style kitchen.
I find the shade to be perfect for cabinetry. Not too bold – almost like a wheat yellow. Diamond-shaped stone tiles adorn both the floor and back splash, blending perfectly with the counter tops. Note the custom cabinet door for the refrigerator at left.
The kitchen is large enough to comfortably fit a small dinette for coffee in the morning or wine in the evening.
Yellow and gray paisley-patterned valances are all that’s needed at the windows. The styling is perfect for a turn-of-the-century home. A small windowsill provides just enough space for a small flower arrangement. You could also place herbs in this window.
The designer cleverly fit a home office area into the kitchen without losing its cottage appeal. I love the ample cupboard space throughout this kitchen.
The kitchen is on the smaller side, but it’s beautifully designed for functionality. Plenty of windows keep the room light and bright during the day, while historic reproduction light fixtures top it all off.

I’m not a yellow fan, but this kitchen could change my mind! It’s simply charming!!!
It definitely puts a smile on your face. It seems to be the right shade of yellow – kind of creamy!
Beautiful and different.
Everything you need and i love the color and coziness of it.
It’s truly a cozy kitchen, isn’t it? Glad you like it!
What color yellow is this ?
Any suggestions for yellows for walls ?
WHY ARE THERE SO MANY POP UP ADS NOW ON YOUR SITE? So distracting! Some even partially cover your articles!
HI SCJ – I haven’t noticed ads covering the article but I’ll definitely look into this. Thanks for the feedback!
Oh yes! My first house had the ugliest brown cabinets and I repainted all with a beautiful pale yellow. I totally transformed that kitchen into a beautiful spring/summer design. Awww Good memories!
Love this kitchen!
Vicki – your first kitchen sounds like a dream! Glad I could take you down memory lane today. 🙂
Love this cozy kitchen and it is more spacious than I thought. I think though I would take the home office out, I’ve never been a fan of that in a kitchen.
Hi Kim Anne,
I’m with you on the kitchen office idea as I would think it would be distracting trying to get work done there. However, if I had young kids I might like having them color or do crafts there while I’m making dinner so I could keep an eye on them. 🙂
Beautiful. What brand/color yellow please?
I’m third to love the yellow and wonder what color it is.
