Four Tips For Choosing A Kitchen Cabinet Color
One of the biggest decisions homeowners have to make during a kitchen remodeling is what color to choose for their custom cabinets. Wall color, backsplash design, and countertops are relatively easy and affordable to replace. However, your cabinetry will be much longer-lasting. So it is important that you choose a color that you’ll love. Here are some tips to get started:
1. Consider How You Use Your Kitchen
If you cook large dinners for friends and family or have lots of children, darker cabinets are definitely the way to go. Darker cabinets are easier to keep clean-looking when you get a lot of use out of your kitchen. However, if you just make an occasional meal or have a small family of older children and adults, you can go with a lighter color or even white.
2. Factor In The Size Of Your Kitchen
The size of your kitchen also impacts what colors you should choose. If you have a small kitchen lighter colored cabinets can make the space feel larger and more open. On the other hand if you have a very large kitchen, darker cabinets can make your space feel more cozy and welcoming.
3. Avoid Trends
We’re all tempted by trendy decor. You may think you want that millennial pink or emerald green for your cabinets now, but think about how you will feel in a few years when the trend dies out. It’s best to stick with classic like wood, white, or black for your cabinets. If you want to incorporate trends, choose easy to replace elements like the wall color, backsplash, or cabinet hardware.
4. Think About How Often You Like To Update The Look
If you are someone who gets bored of your rooms easily and paints a new color every other year, you’ll want to pick something that can go with everything. Colors like white, black, and medium tone or lighter woods match everything. If on the other hand, you want to create the kitchen of your dreams and ever have to worry about changing it again, go with a traditional wood color like cherry or mahogany.
