Now that you have decided on the right cabinets for your kitchen, you need to pick the right colour for them as well. Cabinets take up a considerable part of a kitchen, which is why it is crucial to choose its colour wisely. Most importantly, you should pick a colour that you love and works with the rest of your decor. Here are some tips to help you choose the best colours for your kitchen cabinets.

Style

You can easily choose a cabinet colour by looking at the way it is styled. Traditional kitchens benefit from classic colours like whites and creams. A modern kitchen lends itself to bright colours and contrasting tones. Consider pops of colour if you have a modern kitchen.

Size

Consider how big your kitchen is and the amount of lighting it receives. The colour of your cabinets will either be hampered or enhanced depending on those factors. A small or dark kitchen will appear bigger and brighter with light coloured cabinets. Dark cabinets look better in a bigger, well-lit room.

Selling

If you know you will be putting your home on the market soon, stick with neutral colours in your home to that it appeals to a broader audience. You do not want to go to the effort and spend money on cabinets that need to be changed in a few months. And, you also do not want your home to stay on the market any longer than it needs to just because of its kitchen cabinets. Go with a safer, inexpensive option if you will be selling your home soon.

Contrast

Dark cabinets against a light kitchen design can look stunning when paired together. Conversely, light cabinets against a dark kitchen can make the room look bigger and give it an airy feel. Using contrast strategically can be an easy way to change the vibe of your kitchen and play up dark or neutral tones.

Colours

If you want your kitchen to stand out from the sea of white and beige kitchens out there, try incorporating multiple colours in it. Choose just one bold colour to use throughout a neutral-coloured kitchen if you still want to play it safe. You could also do this by using one bold colour sparingly. Paint the cabinets in your kitchen island a different colour from the rest of your kitchen and create a focal point that is fun but not overpowering.

Staining

When you do not want to paint over beautiful kitchen cabinet wood, you can stain it instead. That way you can still preserve the beauty of the wood and choose a colour that better matches your kitchen decor.

Distressed Finish

If you do decide to paint your kitchen cabinets, consider a distressed finish. It will be easier to maintain than a smooth painted surface since it hides imperfections and dirt well.

Shades

If neutral colours are too dull for you and bold colours are too much, consider using several shades of one colour. You could use dark tones of a colour on your upper cabinets and light shades of the same colour on lower cabinets or vice versa. This will keep your kitchen neutral while adding more visual interest.
