Chances are, your kitchen is in a very prominent, visible spot in your home. Many kitchens set the tone for the decor of the rest of the house, as they make a big difference when it comes to color scheme, finishes, and style of a space.

As such, changing the color of your kitchen cabinets will definitely bring a new look and feel to your entire home. That’s why choosing a color to paint your kitchen cabinets is such a big decision. When deciding on a color to paint your cabinets, consider the following factors.

Colors you like

It might seem obvious, but you’d be surprised how many people will paint their cabinets a certain color just because they think it is trendy or “in.” The most important thing when it comes to painting your cabinets is that you like how they turn out. That means that if you don’t love dark colors, you shouldn’t use them. If you don’t like distressing or wood grain on your cabinets, don’t get it! Choose something that you like, first and foremost.

Classic or modern

Kitchen cabinets can be painted in just about any color. When deciding what color you want yours to be, try to focus on the style type that most appeals to you. Do you like a classic look? Then white or black is pretty foolproof. If you’re looking for something more modern, gray is extremely popular right now, but so are shades of blue, or even dark forest green. Our advice is to find pictures of kitchens and cabinets that you love, and decide if that look will work in your space.

What feeling will the color create?

We all know that different colors evoke different feelings and create different “moods” in a space. Here are some different vibes you might want your kitchen to give off, along with colors that are commonly used to create that setting.

  • Clean, bright, vibrant: white, light gray, light blue
  • Whimsical, fun: turquoise, red, yellow
  • Sleek, modern: black, dark gray, white
  • Lush and elegant: navy, forest green, dark brown
