For cabinetry, homeowners are favoring customized colors that perfectly fit their kitchen spaces. Neutral colors are currently big favorites with tones like grey, yellow and soft greens but don`t count out the darker color pallet. Black, navy, and emerald green has the high-end allure many desire.
For a contemporary kitchen, forgo traditional cabinets in the darker-stained wood tones and go with color. Color cabinets are a great way to add personality to a kitchen. The best part is that certain painted cabinets can be repainted as needed without having to replace them. The boldest color choices today are not necessarily bright yellow or saturated primary colors. Today`s neutral colors make a big, modern-yet-classic statement like:grey, blue, white, taupe.
Another option is to paint your cabinets, though this isn`t always as simple as it may sound. Significant prep time goes into painting cabinets, and if you have melamine cabinets (rather than wood), you need to find paint that will stick to this surface. If you go this route, use spray paint after cleaning and lightly sanding the surface.
The space you have to work with—and your overall budget—may go a long way toward determining the final product when it comes to your kitchen cabinet design. Large, open areas tend to tolerate elegant, sweeping, traditional designs better than smaller spaces, which are often better suited for the clean, compact lines of modern design. That said, there are "transitional" styles that can work for any size space—for example, Shaker-style cabinetry can be made to feel modern, traditional or style-neutral simply by choosing cabinet hardware, paint or stain that reflects one of those styles. Similarly, accents like backsplashes and furniture—chairs, stools or tables—can either complement or contrast with cabinetry to create an impactful design combination.
