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

As more homeowners decide to stay in one place longer, many of them are choosing neutral cabinet colors that work well with a variety of design elements. These new earthy, neutral color palettes exude a visual warmth while blending seamlessly throughout the rest of the house. Mineral tones evoking ore, slate and graphite also bring a deep-in-the-earth beauty while bringing stability to a space.

Cues From Mother Nature

Her sense of color and style never fails, and today's cabinet color trends reflect her panache. Kitchen and bath color palettes portray Mother Nature's best, from the hues of golden wheat fields to endless variations of fresh foliage green. Atmospheric cabinet colors and finishes evoking clouds, fog or mist bring a natural sense of calm to today's interiors.

Color Blocking

Stunning color blocks in combinations of luxurious, classic colors will create an air of luxury within any space. Creamy camel and intense red; timeless navy and deep chesterfield green; lustrous black and icy white. Using contrasting cabinetry colors to color block is an eye-catching way to achieve this luxurious look.

Depth of Color

Color goes to magical new depths, laying a firm foundation for a wide range of palettes for kitchens and baths. Classic grays get more intense. Blues get deeper with inky-black and indigo influences. Browns get bolder with rich chestnut undertones. Dark monochrome designs emerge in baths with shiny black surfaces and kitchen cabinets with deep, dark finishes/colors.

Simply Gorgeous Grays

Gray cabinets have become a sought-after trend, bringing urbane sophistication to kitchens and baths. Highlighting the trend for smooth and sleek cabinet door styles, gray is a versatile neutral that won't steal too much attention from the rest of the room. Using deep, mineral-tone gray cabinets with lighter gray cabinets will add a cool contrast to your space.

Whites and Off-Whites

White cabinets exude the simplistic beauty that homeowners are seeking for their interior environment while creating design flexibility to stand the test of time. Homeowners are using off-white or white cabinets to create a bright, optimistic contrast to the darker neutrals often used in today's homes.

Cool, Comfortable Blues

Blues are an especially calming option for today's spaces, and they complement the neutral palette seamlessly. Pale, spa blues and quiet colors of water and the sky create a beautiful complement to cabinets with a raw material finish/colors, in the end creating an atmosphere that is equal parts comfortable and relaxing.
