Kitchen cabinetry is one of the factors that can make or break the appearance of the kitchen. When you’re upgrading your kitchen cabinets there are things you’ll want to think about such as the color of the cabinets, the color of the walls, furniture, and in general what sort of color palette would you like to have for your kitchen. Having a color palette of complementary colors can be a real game-changer. This is going to help make your space perfectly tie in together.
It’s also going to help create a much-needed balance in the space that’s not only going to look fantastic but it’s going to make you feel good whenever you’re in the kitchen as well. So there are some factors you need to think about whether you’re selecting the color of your cabinets or looking to change the color of your kitchen. You’ll want to think of the materials your cabinets are made from and whether or not you want them to be painted as well.
1) Wooden cabinets
Wood cabinetry is a classic. You can style wood in a variety of ways to give off a rustic appearance such as a cottage kitchen or style it with the right décor and colors to make it modern-contemporary. First, you’ll want to think about the type of wood you have. Most wood will pair perfectly with earthy shades, or even warm tones depending on the undertones of your cabinet.
2) Metal cabinets
Metal cabinets have been gaining popularity over the last few years thanks to the popularity of the industrial style in interior design. When it comes to metal cabinets, they’re usually in the color black, silver, or metallic grey. These can come in other colors too. Neutral colors will complement these greatly. You can go with white, black, taupe, or even brick red for continuing that industrial style.
3) Painting your cabinets
You can never go wrong in painting your cabinets, some homebuyers will purchase kitchen cabinets for the sole intention of just painting over them. This can be fairly cost-effective but there is always the potential of the results of nothing going to plan, in this case, look to a profession! Mod Cabinetry has a variety of high-quality cabinets you can paint over, or just get in a color of your choosing.
4) Know your undertones
You should never underestimate the power of undertones. Undertones have a lot of power as they reflect additional colors that the floors, furniture, walls, and cabinetry will have. Whenever you’re selecting a color for your cabinets, you’ll want to look at the undertones of your floor, countertops, and walls. You’ll mostly find undertones when sunlight is being reflected on surfaces.
5) Think about colors that complement each other
It’s always best to pick the top three colors in your space and to go from there. Are these colors complementing each other or going against one another? It’s always better on the eyes to have colors going with each other. If your kitchen is primarily white then selecting light shades such as ivory, light grey, taupe, or light brown can look marvelous for your kitchen cabinets.
