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 keen on the 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.


Look at the size of your space

The size of your space is one of your main considerations when it comes to cabinet door colour choice. 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 one of the areas which really sets the tone for the whole house so think carefully about colour choice given the impact colour can have on mood. 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.


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 by opting for a couple of different colours. For example, you could choose to have neutral upper cabinets but coloured lower cabinets or opt for a feature island bench cabinets in a bright, contrasting colour.


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 your sentiments!
