When you are considering a kitchen remodel, one of the biggest choices you have to make is what type and color of kitchen cabinets to install. Kitchen cabinets are arguably the backbone of your entire kitchen remodeling project, so you want to make sure they set the right tone you want to evoke in your home. White continues to dominate the kitchen scene and for good reasons; white cabinets give a kitchen a bright, cheery look and never seem to go out of style.
But what if you want something that makes a statement, or blends better with your own home? That’s what we are dedicating today’s blog to – Non-white kitchens that are still timeless and stylish.
6 Stylish Kitchen Cabinet Colors That AREN’T White
If you’re looking for a refreshing change, take a look at these color options:
Beautiful Brown Finish
Kitchen cabinets with a warm and rich brown finish can tie room effects together – like wooden beams and trim – and offer a unique look and feel. Combining your natural tones with fun paint colors and countertops can also pop your plain whites into some interest and dimension.
This kitchen with Omega cabinetry combines the warm and rich cabinetry with true brick and mortar walls making this kitchen feel rustic, warm, and welcoming. Note multiple brown finishes are used here to add dimension and interest to the kitchen design.
If you’re tired of white cabinets and dark walls, switch things up a little with rich, blue cabinets complemented by light-colored features such as white marble countertops or light grey walls. A palette of calming colors like these makes brass or chrome fixtures pop, while creating a cozy feel.
Gray is a tone that can complement both warm and cool tones when used in the right kitchen remodeling design. Do you have a stunning view outside your kitchen window? Gray cabinets provide the perfect backdrop to nature without attracting all the attention to themselves.
Pair your gray cabinetry with a different color lowers and you have that much more design opportunity. You can accessorize your kitchen design with bright hand towels, island seating, center piece and more. Gray brings peace and tranquility.
This is a great kitchen cabinet color when you want a clean, elegant design that adds interest to the room but doesn’t steal the show. Like greige, olive-tan complements natural surroundings very nicely – the perfect choice for a country home.
Just like a worn pair of blue jeans is comfortable and relaxing, distressed blue kitchen cabinets can create a rustic, down-home feel – perfect for family relaxation or making your dinner guests feel at home. You can mix and match your cabinetry just like you’d pair a cool boho blouse with your worn jeans.
This kitchen mixes and matches the distressed denim look with wood finished cabinets as well as white cabinetry and white hood with brown accent trim. The open shelving takes advantage of the natural wood exposure to again complement the white, blue, and gray.
The countertop is a beautiful white quartz with graish blue veining, bringing in more of the denim blue feel to this kitchen.
Soft pink kitchen cabinets may not be for everyone, but a pastel hue like this adds a feeling of freshness and whimsy. Add in natural lighting plus open shelving and even a tiny kitchen will feel expansive and dreamy.
