A Guide to Selecting the Right Cabinet Color and Style 

Deciding on a kitchen cabinet color and style is one the most important choices you’ll encounter during your kitchen renovation. In order to achieve your perfect vision for the space, it is crucial to consider these fine details. Color and style can affect the overall look and feel of the room and dictate how the other elements of your design will fit together. Since cabinets take up a significant area of visual space in your kitchen, it is essential that they not only work well with your other décor but most importantly, they should also be in the color and style that you genuinely love.  

If you have questions about which colors or style to choose, the experts at Bucks County Cabinetry & Design can provide you with the professional insight you need to bring your kitchen design goals to life. 

Style Tips for Choosing the Right Kitchen Cabinets for Your Home

For most homeowners, the kitchen is the main focal point of the home. Therefore, as the primary living area, it is essential that you make it a welcoming and comfortable space for the whole family to enjoy. The range of cabinet colors you are faced with can feel overwhelming at first, but by keeping a few of these style tips in mind you will be well on your way to picking the perfect hue for your new kitchen. 

  • Consider the Mood You Want to Set: An important factor in determining what color and style you should select for your kitchen cabinets is figuring out what kind of mood you want to convey. For instance, choosing a darker cabinet will make the space appear smaller, while lighter colors will significantly expand your kitchen area. Ultimately, you will want to select a color that suits your personality and the style of your home.
  • Consider Your Design Style: The design style of your kitchen should guide you in decisions like cabinet color and style choices. Typically, classic cabinet colors like white or cream will suit a more traditional kitchen design, whereas brighter colors or contrasting tones will work best for a more modern design. If you still aren’t sure what your design style is, look online or flip through an interior design magazine for inspiration. These resources can be extremely helpful by providing you with examples of color combinations or styles of cabinets that you may not have otherwise considered. 
  • Consider Size and Lighting: Some of the most important things to consider before making your decision are the size of your kitchen and the existing lighting you have featured in it. These factors are important because the color or style you select for your cabinets can either enhance or take away from your kitchen redesign. Choosing a lighter colored cabinet if your kitchen is small or under-lit will help it feel more open.  With the correct balancing of wall, countertop and floor coloring, dark cabinetry can be beautiful, and add drama to a space.  
  • Consider a Buyers’ Color Preference: If there is any chance you may be selling your home in the future, you need to consider colors and styles that not only appeal to you but that will ultimately appeal to potential buyers. If you choose to stay true to your own personal taste, make sure that it’s easily customizable in case you decide to put your house up for sale in the future.
