3 Popular Kitchen Cabinet Colors
Painted cabinets are a popular choice when it comes to kitchen cabinet colors. They provide multiple options to add a pop of color to the space, such as a kitchen island. It’s also a great way to break up the wood tones especially if the flooring is hardwood. With such a variety of colors, one might think there would be lots of pictures showcasing the different pallets chosen yet there are three colors that maintain the top spots. White, gray, and blue continue to be upfront on the selection chart. Let’s talk about them and what it is that makes them popular.
White Kitchen Cabinet Colors
This is a true minimalist color and one that will go with any color combination or highlight. It also adds extra light to a space especially when natural light is allowed inside. It can also make the space feel larger as well. White can immediately brighten up a space and is a great choice when you have an area that has few windows. It is also a color that goes with any style whether it is farmhouse or contemporary since it is timeless and elegant. It is a versatile color that can easily be decorated with simplicity or ornately depending on the owner’s tastes. It is also the perfect color to create a beautiful contrast with, such as dark countertops or backsplash. There are a couple of cons when it comes to having all white cabinets with the first being a little harder to keep clean and left without a few accents it can look too crisp and cold. When done right, white is a great color of choice and will be sure to last. Look at this project that paired white cabinets with reclaimed heartwood pine.
Gray Kitchen Cabinet Colors
There are many shades of gray that range from a cool palette to a warm one. It remains a popular color due to the elegance and relaxing atmosphere it provides. Since it is calmer than the white but still brighter than some wood tones it is a happy medium. This color also works well with certain combinations such as wood and white making it a great choice for two-toned kitchens. Gray also carries with it a feeling of more a high-end cabinet color and gives the space a more luxurious ora. It is a great option for kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and the home office. It invokes a sense of calm and warmth, both of which are great for places where we remain for long periods of time such as the kitchen and office. Remember that there are multiple shades of gray so be sure to ask for a sample before finalizing the color.
Blue Kitchen Cabinet Colors
From dark to extremely light, this color can add a hint of fun or sophistication to your space. It is a color of many tints and hues and can accomplish a multitude of design purposes. Blue of course is often associated with a relaxed vibe making it a great choice for bathrooms and kitchens. The dark navy is a great contrast to the white and makes a bold statement in the kitchen while the soft tones of sea blue make the bathrooms all the more inviting. It is also a versatile color that goes great with wood flooring or tile not to mention stainless steel appliances that work well with this color palette. It also showcases a variety of design styles so it can be used in a french kitchen or sleek modern style. So if you are looking for a relaxed feel with a stylish look, blue is a great choice.
