Picking kitchen cabinet colors

There are endless options for colors of kitchen cabinets. Selecting white, colored or even two toned can be exciting, but also overwhelming!

Here are some key factors to consider when deciding what color is best for your home.

Lighter colors in general open up small kitchens, while darker tones can make large ones feel cozier. So if you are looking to enhance the size of your kitchen without actually moving any walls, selecting white, cream or even soft grays, blues and greens can make your room feel bigger.

The same is true in regards to the amount of natural light in your kitchen space. Abundant natural light allows for bolder colors, while poor lighting benefits from lighter shades of cabinetry.

Popular Cabinet Color Choices

  • Neutrals: White, cream, gray, and beige are timeless and versatile.
  • Bold colors: Dark blues, greens, or blacks make a statement in large kitchens.
  • Warm tones: Yellows and oranges create a cheerful and inviting atmosphere.

White kitchen cabinet perks

For our kitchen, we had contemplated just painting our existing cabinets, but they were original to the home and made of low quality materials.  It seemed like a band-aide fix, not a solution.  

After having dark and dingy cabinets, I knew I wanted white kitchen cabinets. White cabinets give a timeless look and are one of the top resale value color options. And if you can keep on top of maintenance and cleaning them occasionally, they make your kitchen look bigger and crisp!
