Choosing the right colour for your Kitchen Cabinets

If you’re looking to invest in some new cabinet doors, the most important decision you need to make is the colour. Whether you’re going for a neutral look or want to inject some colour into the space, you need to find a colour choice that you can live with – after all, it can be an expensive exercise to replace them after only a short time! Let’s take a look at some things you should consider when it comes to choosing the colour for your cabinets.


Consider multiple colours

The great thing about choosing cabinet colours is that you don’t need to choose just one. You can break up your kitchen and create a unique space by opting for a couple of different colours. For example, you could choose to have a feature island bench cabinets in a wood look finish or opt for neutral upper cabinets but coloured lower cabinets. There are so many great colour combinations you can go for to express your style.


Look at the size of your space

One of your main considerations when choosing colours will be the size of your space. If you’re working with a smaller space, it’s often best to stick with a light, neutral colours to give a sense of light and space. Strong, dramatic colour may suit your style but can really absorb the light and make the space seem small. Instead, think about accessorising with colour as a compromise. However, if you have a larger space to work with and have plenty of natural light, you have more freedom to add in some bold coloured cabinets.


Think about the mood

The kitchen is usually the main hub of your home and can really set the mood of the rest of your home. Think about the style and personality of your house and echo this in your colour choice for the kitchen. For example, if you are trying to convey a laidback, coastal style, then bright red probably isn’t going to fit. Instead, you could opt for muted blues or greys to create a seamless style throughout you home.


Don’t forget wider appeal

When you choose a cabinet door colour, it’s a good idea to have wider audience appeal at the back of your mind. Choosing a colour which you love but that other people will also like certainly makes things a lot easier if you sell your property down the track. If you love the idea of bright orange cabinets, be prepared for the fact that potential homebuyers may not share the same love for it as you do.
