It looks like we might finally be adding some color back into our kitchens in the 2020’s. After years of Cherry, black, dark wood and finally white kitchen cabinets, splashes of color are making their way back. These aren’t the pastels of the 80’s or the avocado green of the 70’s. These are hip colors made to be pop of color and a focus feature. Think of all the rooms you’ve seen with gray or white furniture and then a couple of orange or green pillows. This is now transferring to the kitchen cabinets.
There are a couple of colors that are making an entrance. One is the green that we mentioned earlier. Green is a very hard color to get right so always get a professional opinion in getting the right shade. Luckily for customers, top manufacturers of kitchen cabinets have already done the research into selecting the right color. Be prepared to hear the names pale mint, olive, chartreuse or clover green. The good thing about this range is that you can go as subtle or as bright as you want with your new kitchen cabinets. You can also combine the trend of upper and lower kitchen cabinets having two different color schemes. This can help mute a bright shade or keep the whole overall feel muted.
Luckily the blue trend will be around for a while. We’ve seen this come out on shelving and slowly make its way to the kitchen. The good thing about this blue is that it has shade of two of our favorite things –denim and noncommittal gray. How you would like to use it is up to you. Some customers only feel comfortable adding some blue chairs while others go straight for the kitchen cabinets. This is also a great accent color to use in painted backsplash tiles. You’re getting the modern design of a trend color but without being to dramatic.
So, what are you thinking? We always recommending printing out a couple of pictures and trying to envision them in your kitchen. And, we can always talk to you about kitchen cabinets that can easily be painted or resurfaced in the future. Having a great looking kitchen is something you’ll never regret.
