Many homeowners make the mistake of ignoring the style of their kitchen. However, it’s important to keep in mind that the style of one area of the house affects the home design as a whole. There’s no reason why you can’t add a few design touches to your kitchen to make it stand out a little bit. An easy and cost-effective way to do this is through the use of color, especially for your kitchen cabinets. The kitchen cabinets tend to take up a lot of visual space in most kitchen areas, which means that by getting creative with the color of your kitchen cabinets, you can help to greatly improve your kitchen’s overall design. The following are a few colors that you should consider using for your kitchen cabinets:
BLACK KITCHEN CABINETS
Black may seem like an extremely bold choice for a kitchen design – and it is – but it can also help to create a luxurious look that is unique among more traditional, lighter cabinet colors. Using black is also a great way to add some dramatic contrast to your kitchen, thereby helping it to visually stand out.

NAVY KITCHEN CABINETS
If black seems too bold, but you like the idea of adding contrast to your kitchen design in order to help it pop, then try using navy. Navy provides a much less intense feel than black and can help make the kitchen look elegant and charming at the same time. For a nice balance in your kitchen design, try using navy for your lower cabinets while keeping your upper cabinets white.

PASTEL GREEN KITCHEN CABINETS
Using lighter colors for your cabinets is more of a traditional choice, and for good reason: the kitchen should provide a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere to work and eat in. Not to mention that the lighter a kitchen is in terms of the lighting, the more functional it is – and using light colors will help compliment any natural light that comes in. Pastel green is a color that will help accomplish this. It’s a refreshing color that provides a subtler look that compliments the use of white.

OLIVE GREEN KITCHEN CABINETS
If you like the idea of using green in the kitchen but find that pastel green is a little too subtle, then you may want to experiment with olive green. Olive green is much darker, thereby allowing the kitchen to have more of a dramatic design. For an even more luxurious look, compliment your olive green cabinets with marble accents.

TURQUOISE KITCHEN CABINETS
Turquoise is a strong color that adds a lot of personality to a space. Too much of it might be a little overwhelming, in fact. Because of this, use it somewhat sparingly. For example, you can use turquoise on the frames of your cabinets leaving the rest a natural wood color. You can also elect to leave the lower or upper cabinets in their natural wooden color as a way to create more of a harmony in your kitchen space, especially since turquoise and brown tend to compliment one another well.
