Picking the right shades for a room in your home can be an arduous and frustrating task — especially if you’re picking something for your kitchen cabinets.
In this article, we will be sharing tips for picking the best kitchen paint colors.
What Atmosphere Do You Want To Create?
· Subtle and clean colors:
If you want an uncomplicated kitchen, elegant but simple, cooking space, choose cold colors such as black and white.
Indeed, white has long been the favorite color of many kitchens. Symbol of purity it brings clarity and freshness to the room and blends with many materials.
More original, black has also become very trendy, for the luxurious side, sophisticated and refined – it gives your kitchen a futuristic look. You can also choose to combine the two for a timeless and chic design.
· Warm colors
However, if you want something a little more cheerful and bright, opt for more vivid colors such as lemon yellow or raspberry red. For a warm and friendly environment, you can choose a warm color, which will go very well with your raw wood elements. Orange, yellow, or red, warm colors bring dynamism to your room.
· Soft colors.
Finally, pastel colors are also very fashionable right now and are here to stay for many years. They’re soothing, and they bring clarity to your room and blend very well with materials such as wood, accentuating the natural side in your kitchen. Almond green, pearl gray, and taupe are particularly trendy in recent months.
A color that adapts to existing style and elements
Before you rush into choosing the right color for your kitchen cabinet, you will need to consider the other elements of your room. It is important that the chosen color perfectly matches your countertop, your fixtures, your floor covering, and your various accessories.
So, it’s wise to draw your inspiration from these different elements to determine which color will be the most appropriate for your cabinets. The goal is to make the decoration of your kitchen harmonious and to have a beautiful visual aspect.
If you have a lot of color accessories, opt for more neutral colors so as not to make your keep appear overwhelming. In addition, if you have quartz or laminate countertops, opt for simple and soft colors or choose to keep the natural look of the wood.
Consider the Style of Your Kitchen
Country, classic, modern … The style of your kitchen will also influence the choice of color for your cabinets. If you have opted for a modern kitchen, it is advisable to choose rather sober colors, which give the classic and chic look.
Consider beige, anthracite gray and white-black duo, while ensuring to minimize the number of colors in your kitchen to keep a beautiful uniqueness.
In contrast, for a country-style kitchen, the choice of soft hues is recommended for a natural and warm feel. The white, cream, and beige pair well with the raw and rustic side of the wood, typical of country kitchens. Many homeowners in Beaverton, OR, prefer pastel colors that give a soft and relaxing air rather than bright colors.
Similar to the country kitchen, the classic kitchen also favors light tones (beige, white, cream) to bet on sobriety but can also choose to keep the natural color of the wood by simply deciding to varnish.
