My Favorite Paint Colors for Kitchen Cabinetry

Our team of designers and craftsmen at Walker Woodworking have been creating beautiful custom cabinetry and accessories in the foothills of North Carolina since 1999. While the actual designing and craftsmanship part of creating cabinets rightfully takes most of our time when starting a project, we realize that the color of the final product will also be important to you.

Perhaps more than any other criteria, the finish and color of your custom cabinets will help determine how well they mesh with the rest of the décor and items in your kitchen especially major elements such as countertops, appliances and flooring. The following are three general color schemes that many homeowners doing a kitchen remodel choose among when trying to select just the right look for their cabinets.

Neutral Paint Colors

These are time-honored and safe colors to go with as far as not offending anyone else’s style sensibilities should it ever become time to sell the home. This includes colors such as cream, tan, light gray, dark gray and beige. They will blend in with most appliance finishes and countertop surfaces. In short, they are a versatile choice that will never go out of style, which is why so many people go with neutral colors.

Tuxedo Coloring

The fact that so many people do go with neutral colors might make them a less than ideal choice if you’re trying to make your kitchen stand out from the pack. If you find neutral…well…boring, then you might want to spice things up with this stylish two-tone color option.

Unlike an actual tuxedo, this kitchen cabinet coloring choice can be more than just white and black although that certainly would be the highest contrast option you could go with. You also have some choices about where to make the color contrast. A common approach would be to make the upper cabinetry one color and then lower cabinets either a completely different color for a high-contrast look or a different shade of the same color. You can also put different colors between rows of cabinets at the same level against different walls in your kitchen. One color for wall cabinets and another for those in an island in the center is yet another idea.

Bold Colors

Using bold colors is the ultimate personal statement in your cabinetry color. You may have a particular color or mix of colors you adore but you’re not sure if others would. If you know you’re planning to stay in the home a good long time, then you may want to throw caution to the wind, and go for a color choice that makes you happy. Remember that bold does not, and probably should not, have to mean bright or gaudy. Bold colors can be done quite tastefully, so you can reduce any potential downside if you do end up selling someday while still having a cabinetry color choice you really want.

Here for Your Cabinet Design and Finish Needs

The above color options are some of the more popular ones. This is, of course, in addition to the very widespread alternative of going with a wood finish. Whatever specific look you’re going for with your kitchen cabinetry, our designers and artisans at Walker Woodworking can turn it into a reality.
