If you’re like most homeowners, you probably don’t give your kitchen cabinets too much thought on a daily basis. For most of us, after all, cabinets are simply a place to store our cups and dishes; but by ignoring your cabinets, you’re also missing out on a fabulous opportunity to transform and elevate your entire kitchen look.
One of the easiest (and most affordable) ways to get more mileage out of your cabinets is to give them a fresh coat of paint. But which color to choose? To help you make a decision, we’ve put together four of the hottest and most popular color trends in kitchen design right now. Combined with options like trim and backsplash, the possibilities are endless!
Popular Kitchen Cabinet Color Ideas & Trends
Idea #1: Classic Beige
Beige might not be the most exciting color, but it’s definitely one of the trendiest, dominating list after list of style must-haves for 2020. Both classy and classic, beige offers a backdrop that is warm, inviting, and mellow without being obtrusive: perfect for letting the meals and guests shine! A constantly popular color for kitchen cabinets, beige can be effortlessly blended with virtually any other color scheme, which makes this versatile hue ideal for all sorts of warm and cool palettes.
Idea #2: Elegant Grey
Cool, reserved, and slightly mysterious, grey is another chart-topping color that dominates trends for 2020. Of course, there are many versions of “grey,” from gentle near-whites to stately charcoals. When you’re deciding on dark or light, keep these basic design principles in the back of your mind:
Idea #3: Timeless White
When it comes to designing a color scheme, nothing could be more simple or timeless than plain, pure, elegant white. A bright, white kitchen feels fresh and inviting, attracting all of your visitors and family members into the heart of the home.
Just keep one caveat in mind: since white shows stains clearly, you’ll need to put in some extra effort to keep that squeaky-clean feeling. If you’re up for the task, white cabinets can add a fresh, sparkling touch to your kitchen.
Idea #4: Sophisticated Wood
Who says color has to come from paint? If you prefer something more rustic or traditional, trade a painted finish for the natural elegance of plain wood. Whether genuine or artificial, wood kitchen cabinets come in a surprisingly broad array of colors and grain patterns, giving homeowners a great degree of flexibility. Wood can also be stained or painted to alter its original appearance, giving you even more power to customize.
