When considering colours for your new kitchen design and kitchen cabinets, it’s easy to just go with the first shade you see of the colour you want, but more often than not grey isn’t just grey — there are blue-greys, green-greys, purple-greys, etc, so making sure the scheme is right, is very important.
If you want your kitchen design and kitchen cabinet colours to pop, it’s not all about having the sleekest design and state-of-the-art appliances. Going big with colour is another great way to make it stand out. Bold blues are a perfect way to do this, imbuing your kitchen with confidence and poise while still working well with neutrals and other colours. Blue is timeless, but still makes a statement, which is why it is one of our favourite design colours.
Kitchens should be places of happiness, laughter, and good times, and what better way to bring that feeling than by incorporating some strong yellow into your kitchen. Bold yellow cabinets are basically a shortcut to a sunny sensibility, and it’s important to remember that you don’t need to go for basic primary-colour yellow to achieve this effect. Yellows can be used in various styles. You can also achieve a rustic look by pairing sandy yellow cabinets with darker wood tones, or create a classic aesthetic by combining yellow cabinets with blue countertops.
Don’t be intimidated by going dark in your kitchen design and choice of kitchen cabinet colours. Opting for black kitchen cabinets is a mature choice that remains fashionable year after year, and which gives your kitchen a feeling of sleekness and class. When it comes to black cabinets, contrasting them with other colours or shades can help your kitchen avoid becoming too dark and dreary. Pairing black cabinets with white ones is a timeless option. Or, if you want to go bold, try mixing high-gloss black cabinets with walls in a primary colour, like the aforementioned yellow.
Have a great weekend.
