8 Beautiful Examples That Prove Kitchen Cabinets Don't Need To Be White
Posted Sep 10, 2018
A quick google search for “dream kitchen” will show exactly what we see in the field... the majority of people prefer white kitchen cabinets, followed closely by gray. Neutrals still dominate cabinet color but slowly we are seeing a movement to break from the norm and mix up the color choice with blue and green cabinets. Here’s a look at eight kitchens with blue or green cabinets that grabbed a lot of attention on Houzz recently.

1. Rich blue cabinets pair nicely with the beautiful silver hardware in this light-filled Austin, Texas, kitchen — a remarkably palatable recipe for modern-day design. Grainy, light-wood floors and open shelves add warmth, while a herringbone white-tile backsplash, white range and white-gray countertop provide enough negative visual space to balance the deep cabinet color.

2. If this gorgeous green cabinet color doesn’t make you forget about white cabinets, then perhaps there’s no swaying you. Like blue, green works great with warm woods and brass finishes. It’s also a good color for a large kitchen with a lot of cabinets because it softens natural light, keeping the room from appearing too bright.

3. Navy blue cabinets pair with worn brick, wood and metal finishes to create a sophisticated look in this London kitchen. We particularly enjoy how the simply simplistic cabinets become the focal point in this space.

4. Prefinished cabinets (Baltic blue from Echelon Norwich) combine beautifully with honey-colored wood tones and wrought-iron light fixtures and stools. With white only in backsplash and marble countertop it goes to show that you don’t need to play it safe to have a dreamy kitchen.

5. Here, refreshingly greenish-blue cabinets (painted in Serene Breeze by Benjamin Moore) happily hold court with a dazzling blue backsplash. Even with a smaller kitchen, the use of color in the cabinets and backsplash doesn’t make the space feel small or crowded.

6. Traditional doesn’t mean white...This soft blue (Philipsburg Blue by Benjamin Moore) is great for a traditional home where you want to introduce some uplifting color while still conveying an old-fashioned vibe (such as the subway tile backsplash and rich hardwood flooring).

7. Noticing a pattern yet? Blue cabinets work especially well with warm brass finishes and a crisp white backsplash. It’s hard to find an easier approach to creating tailored style that doesn’t look bland and boring.

8. Sometimes just a couple of punches of a color are all that’s needed to temper a kitchen cabinet scheme. In this Sydney kitchen, dark blue on the upper cabinets and island provide contrast to the white backdrop.
