WHAT ARE NEUTRAL KITCHEN CABINET COLORS?
Because they’re a visually prominent feature in a kitchen, cabinets provide the perfect opportunity to make a color statement. White cabinets are a perennial favorite. They can add lightness and airiness to a kitchen, work beautifully with a variety of countertop materials and they can be a subtle counterpoint to an interesting backsplash. At the other end of the spectrum, black cabinets can help create a sophisticated, dramatic vibe. Pair them with brass hardware to warm them up.
If the idea of a bolder neutral—black, pewter, sage, even navy—is compelling, but you’re afraid that a dark neutral will be too heavy for your space, consider painting an island or the lower cabinets a darker hue and leave the upper cabinets white. The dark color can add interest and help ground the room without being overwhelming.
Between white and black there’s a whole world of neutral grays and beiges that can help you tell your kitchen color story. Grays can lean blue, green or brown and come in soft or saturated hues to accommodate different neutral kitchen color schemes. Beiges will easily add warmth to a space and can provide a beautiful canvas for strong pops of color, or bold accents.
