Cabinet Color Trends

Colorful influences in kitchen and bath design

Whether you're upgrading a current home or renovating a newly purchased one to fit your long-term needs, we've assembled some current cabinet color trends for inspiration. Many of these color trends reflect a shift toward rooms designed in more purposeful ways, pairing great style with smart function.

Refined Neutrals and Earth Tones

Many homeowners are choosing neutral cabinet colors to work with a variety of design elements as more and more of them decide to stay in their current home longer. Not only do these new, earthy neutral color palettes provide visual warmth, but they also effortlessly blend with the rest of the house. Mineral tones evoking slate, graphite and ore offer a deep-in-the-earth sense of solidity to a space.

Cues From Mother Nature

She has the perfect eye for color, and today's cabinet color trends reflect her unique sense of style. Color palettes are reflecting Mother Nature's best in the kitchen and bath, from colors of fresh foliage green to variations of golden wheat fields. Cabinet colors and finishes stemming from atmospheric influences evoke clouds, fog or mist while bringing a natural calmness to interior spaces.

Color Blocking

Graphic color blocks in combinations of classic, lush colors will create a vision of luxury within our lives. Lustrous black and icy white, brilliant red and creamy camel; timeless navy and deep chesterfield green. Easily satisfy the yearning for a luxurious look through color blocking with contrasting cabinetry colors.

Depth of Color

Color trends dive deeper than ever before, laying a solid foundation for a variety of palettes for kitchens and baths. Classic grays grow in intensity. Browns become bolder through rich chestnut undertones. Blues get stronger with inky-black and indigo influences. Baths with glossy black surfaces and kitchens with deep, dark finishes allow dark monochrome designs to shine.

Simply Gorgeous Grays

The desire for gray cabinetry has risen sharply, giving kitchens and baths chic sophistication. Gray is a flexible neutral, highlighting the trend for sleek and simple cabinet door styles without taking away from the beauty of the rest of the room. Add a cool contrast with deep, mineral-tone gray cabinets paired with lighter gray cabinets.

Whites and Off-Whites

White cabinets display the desire for serenity in the home environment with design flexibility to stand the test of time. Provide an optimistic contrast to the deeper neutrals often used with off-white or white cabinet colors.

Cool, Comfortable Blues

A soothing choice for today's spaces, blues work well with the neutral palette. Muted colors of the sky and water and pale, spa blues provide a lovely complement to raw wood finished cabinets, creating an atmosphere full of comfort and relaxation.
