Kitchens are very busy places. It’s the place where we cook, where many of us dine, and where everyone seems to congregate at a party. There are so many competing colors and patterns that add to the visual noise in kitchens. Appliances, food packaging, dinnerware designs, and let’s not forget the kid’s latest artwork prominently displayed on the family art gallery space, aka your fridge.
When deciding on kitchen cabinet colors, think simple, think harmony, and think long term.
Whether you’re choosing to go with a darker hue, a lighter, or neutral shade cabinets, stick to that same color palette when planning the rest of your kitchen design. When the majority of your accessories come from the same color family, the room will come together and feel unified. Then, when you’re ready to add (or change!) how colorful your kitchen is, consider a few key pieces and what will make them “pop” against your existing colors. A couple new stools, rug, window treatments, or even cabinet drawer and door pulls in complimentary or contrasting colors can dramatically alter the overall feeling of your kitchen!
