You know you want a new look for your kitchen. But when it comes to your options for custom cabinet colors, they’re endless. That can be both good and bad.

On the one hand, you have so many possibilities and directions to consider. This can be inspiring and exciting. On the other hand, it’s overwhelming, especially if you don’t have a strong design sense. 

What’s more is that when you’re shopping around and evaluating colors for your cabinets, there are a range of factors to take into account. These include the style of your existing cabinets, how much natural light there is in your kitchen, and the final look you’re trying to achieve. Not only that but, even when you know what color you want, there are many shades to consider within that single color choice.

That’s why so many homeowners turn to a company like N-Hance®. We have design experts on our team who ready to learn about your particular space, your lifestyle, and your preferences. They can then help you narrow the options down to those that will align best with these areas. You can also view samples inside your home, in the light, and gain a clear sense of which one will look great and provide you with the cabinets you will love.

In the meantime, here’s a look at a few of the color trends for custom cabinets in 2020, so you can keep them in mind for your project:

Keeping Wood Natural

Going natural is becoming a trend in the design world with wood cabinets simply stained to showcase their character and bring out their natural beauty. If you choose to follow suit, you’ll add warmth and old-world charm to your kitchen, but do so in a way that feels contemporary and fresh. 

Mixing Wood Tones With Colors

Another similar trend that’s gaining ground involves mixing natural wood tones with painted cabinets. This gives you the best of both worlds. You can allow the beauty of your wood cabinets to shine through, while also adding a pop of color, drama, or flair with paint. Typically, lower cabinets are kept natural with wood tones and upper cabinets are painted a particular color. 

Choosing Light Shades (That Aren’t White)

Whether your home is modern or more traditional, white is always a classic. This can complement a range of styles and spaces, with endless opportunities to add your own personality through hardware, along with other design choices, like your floors. However, in 2020, there’s a shift in design trends from all-white to light tones, adding a bit of color through subtle pastel hues, like sea green. 

Going Back to Basics with Black

On the other end of the spectrum, black is becoming a popular color choice for custom cabinets. Selecting it can add drama to your kitchen, all while giving you flexibility when it comes to wall paint color and other decor choices. It’s edgy yet classic too and can, therefore, pair well with anything from a white backsplash to a rich, wood floor.

Creating Calm with Nature-Inspired Custom Cabinet Colors

Colors, like blue and green, infuse a pop of color but do so in a way that feels calming and comfortable. Not only that, but they work well with many other color families, so it’s easy to pair them regardless of your floors, countertops, or other considerations in your unique space.

Making Dramatic Custom Cabinet Color Choices

Of course, if you want to take a small step that will make a big impact in your kitchen, then you’re in luck with this trend for custom cabinet colors. However, rather than painting all your cabinets with a bold color, like bright red, choose only a few areas, such as those cabinets in your center island or a built-in desk. For the rest, opt for a more subtle or neutral color to balance the look.
