Are you looking to paint or update your cabinets? You’re not alone. In the heart of every home, the kitchen stands as a testament to shared moments, from intimate conversations to late-night gatherings. As we enter 2024, kitchens are evolving from mere cooking spaces to multifunctional hubs of comfort and entertainment. One impactful way to breathe new life into your kitchen is through a fresh coat of paint. Or, even just refinishing your naturally beautiful wood cabinets.

In this blog, we explore the exciting world of cabinet color trends for 2024, where bold is the new beautiful, and white cabinets take a back seat.

1. Unveiling the Cabinet Color Trends of 2024

The National Kitchen & Bath Association’s 2024 Kitchen Trends report emphasizes creating a sense of nature, calm, and harmony through color. Let’s explore the top kitchen paint colors that will define the personality of your space.

a. Earthy Green:

Connect with nature by choosing deep, earthy olive tones for your cabinets. These shades not only exude calmness but also complement other top-of-mind materials for 2024 – wood.

b. Warm Sand:

Before you freak out, this is different than the beige of the 90s. If you’re looking for something neutral yet trendy, go with a Warm Sand color. Step away from the starkness of white with warm sand, a neutral hue that strikes the perfect balance between Gen Z’s nostalgia and modern aesthetics.

c. Deep Sea Blue:

Dive into the trend of blue kitchens with deep sea blue cabinets. Whether painting the island or the entire kitchen, this naval-inspired hue adds a coastal chic vibe, perfect for a refreshing change. Blue can still also match well with most other neutral colors and create a pop in your kitchen.

d. Rich Gray:

As cool gray takes a step back, embrace the richness of warm gray with green and brown undertones. This versatile hue pairs well with the earthen colors dominating kitchen paints in 2024.

2. Wood Over White

White cabinets have long dominated the cabinet color charts. However, it appears people have grown tired of white. Bid farewell to all-white kitchens as wood emerges as the second most popular color, surpassing white and closely following green. Designers recommend incorporating wood through cabinetry, flooring, and architectural accents.
