Cabinets take up a huge percentage of kitchen space and are often a focal point of the room. If you’re not pleased with their color, you’re definitely going to get sick of them in no time. Whether you’re looking to install a completely new set, or just trying to spruce up your kitchen, choosing the perfect color for your kitchen cabinets should be a top priority.
There are tons of different colors that work well with kitchen cabinets, but because they take up so much space, you need to pay particular attention to the balance and contrast in your kitchen. Take into account all of the items and colors in the room. Walls, counters, backsplash, flooring, appliances, and any additional decor should be taken into consideration.
If you have a lot of color in these other features, it’s best to choose white or another neutral color like dark gray, light gray, greige (gray/beige), or eggshell. Neutral colors help ground your space, add light and a calming tone in one of the busiest rooms in the house.
If you don’t want a neutral color, or enjoy a more playful palette, you have a number of options.
If you’re looking to add warmth to your kitchen, yellow is a common go-to color for kitchen cabinets. It creates a cheerful atmosphere, and brightens up your space. There are many shades, from soft and buttery to pastel to electric lemonade. Yellow is an energizing color that looks great in many kitchens.
If you’re looking too add a cool color, blue is one of the most popular choices. It is a very versatile color, and can lend different tones depending on the shade. Lighter hues can create a fresh, airy, and ethereal tone, while darker blues are a great way to add a little color in a modern design.
Green is another color that can have different effects on your kitchen depending on the shade you choose. They tend to look great in spaces with a lot of white. Light, earthy greens provide a more neutral tone, while mint, lime, and emerald green really make the space pop, and can brighten up a space.
