With so many colors and trends to consider, it can be difficult to make the right choice for your space. To help you decide, here are eight popular color options for 2023. Find your favorite, get inspired, and transform your kitchen cabinets in a way that you’ll love!
#1: Creamy White
Go classic with creamy white. It’s timeless, elegant, and offers options for splashes of color in window treatments, accent rugs, and lighting. This warm, welcoming shade is a departure from the cool, crisp whites that have been popular in recent years, and it will pair well with hardwood floors for a classic look. And if you have darker floors, the warm white is a great option, as it will provide some contrast and make the room feel comfortable and elegant.
#2: Dramatic Blue
If you want to add drama and energy to your kitchen, consider painting your cabinets a deep, rich shade of blue. Blue can take your space from boring to beautiful. Modern and sophisticated, is the hue to do if you are ready for a big change. Pair a deep jewel-toned sapphire blue with brass or gold toned fixtures to create a rich, elevated look. No matter if you want to make a bold statement or just add a touch of color, go true blue.
#3: Soothing Sage
Bring the calm of nature into your kitchen with a touch of green. Sage green is warm and soothing, and can be paired with a range of hardware metal finishes – from matte black for a modern look to antique bronze for a traditional feel. Create a rustic farmhouse look or a sleek, modern vibe with sage green. Let your green grow.
#4: Neutral Linen
For a color that is warmer than white, but cooler than cream, natural linen is is fresh and versatile. This neutral tone will add a hint of warmth without it being too bright or limiting. The perfect backdrop to the palette of your dreams, this true neutral can be paired with almost any flooring or countertops, and it’s a great way to breathe new life into your tired cabinets. Natural linen is compatible with both greys and creams, so your options are endless. What’s your style? Classic and timeless or modern minimalist? Freshen it up with neutral linen.
Consider painting some or all of your kitchen cabinets black to add sophistication, especially if your kitchen gets a lot of natural light. Pair black with dark hardware for simple and sophisticated. Contrasting hardware can create a cosmopolitan feel. While black cabinets have their place in many homes, we don’t recommend them for kitchens where there are lots of kids with sticky fingers as black, and other very dark colors, show fingerprints. There are many shades of black and it’s not as simple as you may think to select the “right” black so, consider calling a professional so you’re sure to get the look you envision.
#6: Earthy Terracotta
If you’re looking for a southwest or rustic look, consider classic terracotta. This earthy hue will add a natural warmth to your kitchen. If you aren’t sure that you want all of your cabinets to be this color, consider using it for a kitchen island or a built-in desk to highlight a special detail in the room. Terracotta is a great way to add warmth and depth to your kitchen in a way that is different from the more common choices of brown or beige.
#7: Primary Color Accents
For a fresh and unique look, consider painting your kitchen cabinets – or a few of your cabinets one of the primary or secondary colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, or purple. From Candy Apple Red to Aubergine, these colors are a welcomed change to the boring whites and a really nice accent to bring flair and fun to your space. If you have a hutch that sits alone on its own wall, a bank of pantry cabinets, or a wall of cabinets that surrounds your refrigerator, use color to accent these spots.
#8: Two-Tone Color Blocks
Using two colors in your kitchen is very appealing and provides you with more options for coordinating backsplash, floor finishes, decorative cabinet hardware and countertops. It can also be useful in highlighting a certain area of your kitchen or emphasizing areas that can separate areas for different uses such as a coffee bar, an island, a beverage station, drop zone, etc. One of the most popular combinations includes lighter perimeter cabinets with a darker island. Also gaining popularity is a combination of opaque colors on the perimeter and wood tones on the island. Consult a professional if you aren’t confident making your color selections.
