Vintage no longer. Colorful cabinets are back in style, and becoming one of the most popular design trends of 2014. Up until recently, designers had turned away from creating cabinet colors that were anything but neutral hues such as browns, beiges and whites. But today, designers and manufacturers are showcasing spaces with brightly colored cabinetry that livens up the feel of the room. So today, we will delve into popular colors you can choose for your kitchen cabinets.

Blue – Blue kitchen cabinets are a great addition to any kitchen, especially if you are looking to add coastal, nautical, or even country cottage-style feeling. There is an endless list of blue hues that you can choose from: such as teal, turquoise, navy and cyan. Rejuvenating and energizing, adding the color blue to your kitchen cabinets can bring an air of comfort to your kitchen.

Mint Green – Mint green is a very popular color in design today. You can see it in everything from clothing to furniture and home design. Adding mint green to your kitchen can bring a lively yet vintage feeling to the room.

White – White kitchen cabinetry has a timeless look. A simple kitchen in white can make a perfect backdrop for any accent color you wish to include. You can pair white kitchen cabinets with any backsplash color of your choice. If you have a problem committing to an accent color, this is the best way to ease your nerves.

Black – Black is a perfect fit for any contemporary kitchen because it can bring a glossy, lacquered look to your surfaces. Many designers are combining black and white together to create very modern looking designs. Additionally, black goes with almost any accent color, so the possibilities are endless.

Gray – Finally, there is one color that never goes out of style: gray. This timeless color can be used on any of your permanent home items such as tile or countertops. And because gray is available in so many different shades, you’re sure to find one that fits your home décor plans.

Colors especially seem to come in and out of style quickly, which makes it a little difficult to select a timeless look that features a lot of color. If you are choosing to implement colored cabinetry, you will want to make sure that it does not overpower the design scheme of the room.

For a timeless design, create a color scheme that features fewer colors. The cabinets can serve as an accent against neutral hues such as browns, beiges and whites that are used for the major features of the room (walls, backsplash, floors, ect.). Then, you can use colorful accessories such as towels, curtains, wall art and other design pieces to accent the color of the cabinetry. And best of all, they can be easily switched out if trends change or you simply want to try a new look. Colored cabinetry is a wonderful way to express your design style.
