Looking ahead to 2021 (a mere three months away), white is still the favorite, as we said before. For islands or base cabinets, blue in cobalt or blue, light or slate, will continue to be a solid choice. Gray in warmer tones pairs well with a range of other colors, and works as a base for countertops and base cabinets.
Green in sage or mint shades is predicted to make some inroads, but in lighter earthy and subtle tones. A CliqStudios Instagram follower recently suggested that we include darker forest greens — and something called Jasper and Salamander — in our painted kitchen cabinet inventory.
Burgundy and yellow are also in the forecast, and seem appropriately trendy. As such, they will likely have more of a cult following.
Black is a classic color. But for cabinets? Yes, but in moderation. Shades of black such as charcoal will find their niche in kitchen cabinet colors. A black kitchen can border on the dramatic if too glossy or overly matte. Obviously, as with any darker colors, too much can shrink a kitchen.
Undoubtedly, the top trend in kitchen design is still the use of white painted cabinets. Always a solid choice, white kitchen cabinets complement any architectural style, from traditional to modern. Options for accent colors are unlimited, making for endless creative possibilities.
