Top Kitchen Cabinet Colors To Add a Fresh Feel to Your Kitchen

The kitchen cabinet colors you choose for your kitchen remodel say a lot about your design aesthetic and style. They also say a lot about your home. Do not overlook the importance of kitchen cabinet colors if you are going through a remodel. Give those colors the time and attention they are due. Before you begin your kitchen remodeling project, take some time to imagine your dream space in extreme detail. Create a picture in your mind of your layout, countertops, tile, flooring, and most importantly, your cabinets. Here are some of the best cabinet color options to make your kitchen look fresh and new.  


Traditional White


A traditional, bright white is often used in contemporary and modern styles. It looks clean and helps make spaces feel larger than they are. White paint also attracts natural light; therefore, it is a good addition to an open floor plan or any area with many windows.  


A beautiful white kitchen with open windows on a bright summer day will make your kitchen feel vibrant and inviting for family and friends alike. Kitchens with white cabinets should stay clean and uncluttered for the color to have the most significant impact.

Light Colors


Light colors are invigorating. They make kitchen spaces feel more open, alive, and energized. Lighter colors are great for kitchens that need extra brightness since they reflect light very easily. Colors such as blue and green are known to make a person feel calmer. Pastels and other light cool-toned colors can create a relaxing effect that is visually pleasing for you and your loved ones.  



Barely-there blue shades can look like a darker white shade, a gray color, or a misty blue color. Ideally, you want this color to be so pale it is not always easy to see the true hue. Blues are a popular accent color for interior design and having that hint of blue in your kitchen cabinets could be perfect for tying the cabinets in with your kitchen decorations or your kitchen in with the rest of the home.  


Shades of green that are extremely pale fit in perfectly when your dream kitchen involves a lot of natural materials. You can go from a grayish-green color to a pale version of grass or anywhere in between. Compliment natural stone, wood, and plant materials with this kitchen color that will help your cabinets enhance other natural materials in your home. Light greens are also useful for making a space feel more energetic.  


When you want a classical look that is also a bit restrained, then a pale gray is a great option. It matches many styles of homes from modern to chic and helps your cabinets stand out without being intrusive. You can go from a whitish shade of gray to a bit darker without affecting your design aesthetic. Gray tones are currently exceedingly popular in design and complement any other color choice in the kitchen space because of their neutrality. 


Cool Tones


Cool tones such as slate blue and gray-green can make a person feel relaxed and refreshed. The best way to make the company feel more revitalized is to be surrounded by beautiful color tones. Cool tones easily fit many design aesthetics and can be extremely relaxing and invigorating. 


Slate blue ranges from bright to very muted and almost gray. Shades of blue are known for their soothing properties and can work with many designs. When your kitchen is full of family, a calming color may be just what you need to mitigate the chaos.  


Any shade of blue-green makes a perfect accent color. Teals are popular accent colors, and a cool teal on your cabinets could be just what you need to tie the kitchen area into the rest of the home. This color can range from a strong shade of green to a barely-there teal that is hard to distinguish from traditional blues.  


An unusual (but not unheard-of) color to use on cabinets is shades of purple. Purple is a favorite color for many people, and some people love to have purple everywhere they go. While purple is an unusual color for kitchen cabinets, it can be used to display your personal style in your kitchen. If you love purple, do not shy away from doing what you love.  


Dark Colors


Dark colors are perfect when you have a large kitchen or want a deep accent color with some pop. You can go with lighter options like denim, or such a dark navy that it can be difficult to tell the color is not black.  


Black cabinets make a bold statement. They are imposing and ideal when you want your kitchen to be the focal point in your home. Just make sure you pick out the finish that best matches your lifestyle. Glossy black may be beautiful and shiny, but little hands can leave very visible fingerprints on glossy surfaces. Matte black might not give you the sheen you are looking for in the room but may be easier for you to maintain.  


Dark gray is another option that is not as imposing as black. It can still make a grand statement, but it has a little more wiggle room in terms of fitting in with styles you may have in or around your kitchen. You can opt for a dark gray cabinet that matches types of metals used in your backsplash or faucet and accent them with bright-colored cabinet and drawer pulls.

Mix Kitchen Cabinet Colors When They Work


If you are having trouble deciding which kitchen cabinet colors will work best, then try mixing colors! You could opt for a dark blue for your base cabinets but white for your uppers. If that makes your kitchen feel too spaced out, you can opt for a dark upper cabinet and lighter lower cabinets. These alternating colors can also be used on cabinet and drawer pulls.  


There is no rulebook that says kitchen cabinets must be all one color. If you opt for light-colored cabinets, dark colors make the perfect fill-in for the inside of cabinet doors or shelves. There is also the option of going for a dark outline with a lighter interior. Your kitchen should reflect your individuality.  


Whatever you decide, you cannot go wrong with making your space feel more like your personality.
