Colored Kitchen Cabinets: Inspiration

Colored Kitchen Cabinets: InspirationHouse and Garden UK

As we continue the “best of the best” kitchen series, I thought it would be fun to do a round up of some lovely ideas for colored kitchen cabinets. I adore white kitchen cabinets, of course, but I happen to love almost any well-designed kitchen. I don’t have just one favorite, I have thousands! Ha!

So how does one decide what color is best for their cabinets? It can be hard to choose! I know it is for me. I think colored kitchen cabinets just have to make sense with the house, complement the other elements in the room and fit the style preferences of its owner.

I’ve gone back and forth at least a million of times on what color or type of cabinets I want to use in our kitchen. I can picture several different scenarios that would all result in a lovely kitchen. We do have existing elements to work with in adjoining spaces, such as slate tile in our entry and wood floors in the dining room. Each of those play a role in decisions, but ultimately I have to choose what cabinets I think I will love the most.

The final choice of cabinet colors often comes down to what will make your heart skip a beat. Once you know what your heart wants, you just have to take the leap with confidence. Your ultimate choice may or may not have been your only favorite, but choosing a color you love and that pulls your style together will bring you joy.

In my past homes we’ve had both white and colored kitchen cabinets like dark gray in our last house and even a beautiful shade of green a few houses ago. I’ve loved them all. I’ll be sharing more about plans for our new kitchen soon!

For now, enjoy this round up of beautiful ideas for colored kitchen cabinets.

Update: my new kitchen with a covered range hood!

If you like to cook, have a gas range or just don’t like to smell food cooking all through the house (raising my hand on #3), you’ll probably love having a quality range hood. When we remodeled our last two kitchens, I installed a new range hood in each. They were definitely game changers in both style and function.

As tedious as it can be, it is important to research all your options before making remodeling decisions. You’ll want to select a ventilation hood that enhances your design, but also one that will offer enough power for your particular range. I found an article at Houzz that might be of help in researching ventilation needs and installation options for your situation. There is definitely a lot to learn and think about! A good contractor can be really helpful, too.

Of course, I think the style is almost as important as the function when you are remodeling a kitchen. And style decisions are definitely more fun. When we bought this house I immediately started gathering and pinning ideas for my kitchen remodel. As I looked at all the possibilities, I found I really loved the look of a covered range hood.

Since I’ve actually never had a covered hood before, it was fun to dream and find inspiration for something new to me. While I haven’t yet decided exactly how my range hood will be designed, these kitchens definitely feature some stunning ideas to inspire!
