We have said it before and we will say it again, the kitchen is the heart of the home — there’s no question about it! It’s where you and your family spend time together, an area to entertain guests, and, of course, it’s where you try out new recipes, cooking and preparing delicious meals. However, if the ‘heart of your home’ in your house isn’t everything you want in a kitchen, a simple update or small remodeling project can help you spark life back into the space.
Popular Kitchen Cabinet Colors & Stains
When it comes to kitchen remodeling projects, new kitchen cabinets are among the most popular additions. Especially if your current cabinets are old and worn down, new kitchen cabinets will likely offer more storage solutions and bring a pleasing aesthetic to the space. But don’t be fooled, choosing new kitchen cabinetry for your newly remodeled space is no walk in the park. Turns out, having a seemingly-endless endless number of choices in color and stain can be a problem.
When you have so many different options, how can you ultimately choose? The professional Caribbean kitchen designers at Fiberpol have you covered. Continue reading as we look at some of the most popular color and stain choices for kitchen cabinets.
MOST POPULAR KITCHEN CABINET COLORS
Colored kitchen cabinets are a big part of modern kitchens. However, if you decide to go that route, it is important that the colors you choose for your kitchen cabinets work with both the decor and other elements of the space. It is also a good idea to consider colors that work with your own decorating style yet, will also appeal to potential home buyers should you decide to sell your home down the road. That said, you cannot go wrong with these kitchen cabinet color choices.
White has been the leading color when it comes to kitchen cabinet trends for several decades. As the most popular shade for cabinetry, it certainly fits a variety of kitchen styles. If you are going for a simple, straightforward kitchen design, white countertops will bring a kitchen aesthetic that will not go out of style anytime soon. White also has timeless nature that fits well with a classic kitchen design. Think white kitchen cabinets, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and a subtle tile floor — you won’t want to ever leave your kitchen! Lastly, white kitchen cabinets are especially appealing choices for smaller kitchen design as the bright white finish adds light to an enclosed space, making it feel more spaciousness.
Grey kitchen cabinets have the perfect look for homeowners with a who has an evolving decorative style. Believe it or not, greys are among the most desired neutrals. Grey, similar to white, is a blank slate that works with any décor. Grey kitchen cabinets will fit well with lighter kitchen decor but have enough warmth to blend with darker tones as well. However, they are ideal for overall contemporary styles. Plus, they’ll blend well with appliances and marble or granite countertops, or any countertop style for that matter.
Neutrals like white and gray are great because they go with everything. But for homeowners that want their kitchen design to be bolder, blue may be the color trend you’ve been looking for. Blue kitchen cabinets are a great option for homeowners that are looking to achieve a coastal or nautical look, perfect for any home in the Caribbean. Keep in mind, most of the trending blue kitchen cabinet colors aren’t primary blue, but rather a gray-based blue or more of a navy to create a more neutral kitchen aesthetic. When making your final selections for your kitchen cabinets, use a darker blue hue for a sharp contrast.
You’ll find that today’s modern kitchens make use of bright colored kitchen cabinets to establish focal points in the space. There are many different color schemes for cabinetry that can be used with black, white, or grey countertops, such as orange, red, purple, or turquoise. If you want to take this route during your kitchen redesign project, you’ll want to try to keep the rest of the space simple.
