Colors of nature always seem to fit in seamlessly, even when used in an artificial setting. Both green and yellow fit this billing. While green offers freshness, yellow ushers in a sparkle that fills the entire kitchen with a radiant glow. Yellow kitchen cabinets look even more stunning when used along with white kitchen countertops in stone or organic wooden textures. Different shades of yellow complement other bright colors like green, red and black with equal elegance. So, instead of using a neutral shade as a balancing color, try a discreet yellow for a change.
White cabinets remain at the top of kitchen wishlist. The following kitchens, pulled from the most popular photos feature cabinets in various takes on wood and paint tones to create spaces that range from rich and warm to light and airy. In England, a cloudy green paint color (Sage by Neptune) establishes a soothing farmhouse vibe. Natural light shines on a copper farmhouse sink, creating an artificial sun that’s further reflected by brass cabinet hardware, only to be tamed by dark countertops.
Flat-panel rift-cut white oak cabinets in a natural stain join backsplashes and countertops made of large Carrara marble to establish a weightless palette that enhances sunlight. You’d be hard-pressed to argue that Utah kitchen doesn’t come off as warm and inviting. That large iroko wood island countertop looks more beckoning than a roaring fireplace. The rest of the wood tones, mixed with light green paint and blue-green backsplash tile, push the stay-awhile vibe even further.
Black is not one of the first colors that come to mind when thinking about new kitchen cabinets. Yet it is probably the most natural fit in any contemporary kitchen with clean and well-defined lines and glossy, lacquered surfaces. Bringing together both black and white kitchen shelves is a classic design choice that will never let you down. A more daring approach to using black would be to couple it with dashing red that is equally audacious and prominent. Posh and urbane, black is for those who love a hint of minimalism in their kitchen.
