Colors to Reupholster Your Kitchen Chairs

Transform reupholstered chairs into a center of interest in your kitchen by using complementary colors — color wheel opposites. To select a complementary upholstery color, determine the undertone — or underlying hue bias — of the kitchen’s overall hue. Similar boldness is achieved through tonal contrast, which juxtaposes light and dark shades from the same hue family. Analogous kitchen color schemes afford an opportunity to re-upholster chairs to form soft juxtapositions between neighboring color wheel hues, while textured upholstery adds to an interplay of subtle visual elements in tone-on-tone kitchens.

Skirted Chairs

The red undertones of espresso kitchen cabinetry pair well with refreshing, complementary mint-green, and if your dining area includes skirted chairs, add interest with some chairs upholstered in solid mint-green or espresso, while others feature an espresso and mint-green pattern. Glass countertops and a glass backsplash in mint-green contribute to the fresh feel, as do mint-green glass pendant lights with espresso bases. Mint-green tile blends with mint-green walls and sheer curtains in mint-green and contrasts with reddish, dark-bronze pendant lights and frames.

Monochrome Kitchen

When you paint your walls a light warm-gray, a subtle red undertone reverberates throughout a kitchen, especially when a cherry dining set and cabinetry display a pronounced red finish. Extend the red palette by re-upholstering chairs in a maroon and white pattern, which blends with the cherry wood-tone. Wall color is echoed in warm-gray granite countertops, tile and curtains, while pewter pendant lights and frames also blend with warm-gray. A grouping of Chinese red porcelain plates enlivens walls, as does backsplash tile in red-and-white, providing bright islands of orange-red in a sea of tones from the same hue family.

Blonde-maple cabinetry and furniture interact with sage green and slate-gray to form a soothing, analogous kitchen backdrop, where maple chairs are reupholstered to participate in soft tonal transitions. If walls are sage-green and counters and floors are slate, alternate chair upholstery between sage-green and slate gray, a greenish blue-gray. The colors of a kitchen island with a sage-green base and a slate top are reflected in the chairs’ upholstery, and with their blonde-maple bases, the kitchen’s full color scheme is restated in the chairs. Complete the look with greenish, brushed-nickel pendant lights and maple frames.

Textured Tones

Yellow-toned, earthen ochres serve a dual function: They utilize yellow’s capacity to create a light-filled kitchen ambiance with an earthen, textured feel. Use textured, yellow-ochre upholstery on distressed, French Country chairs. The green-yellow hue transitions softly with greenish, French-finish chairs and a farmhouse table, while also corresponding with a textured, yellow-ochre ceiling and walls. Greenish-umber tile flooring makes a connection with an umber-stained tabletop and a rustic wrought-iron chandelier, which is painted in a greenish-umber color. Complete the look with a yellow-toned oil painting in a wide, French-finish frame.
