A Splash of Colour: The Benefits of Colourful Modern Cabinet Doors

15 June 2018

Most kitchens you walk into these days have cabinets which are a safe shade of white. While there are some very good reasons for opting for totally neutral cabinets, there’s nothing to say that you can’t have a little fun with some colour. Today, we’ll be taking a look at the benefits of opting for a bit of colour with your cabinet doors.


Add some drama

While some people like a completely neutral look for their kitchens, others want to make a statement with the final look. If you want to inject a bit of drama into your new kitchen, coloured cabinets could be the perfect solution. Consider a darker colour like black or cobalt blue – purple has also been a popular colour this season. Remember, you can mix your dramatic cabinets with neutral benchtops and splashbacks to balance it out.  Just make sure your feature colour is one that you also love!


Mix with neutral cabinets

If you like the look of neutral cabinets but also want to inject a bit of colour, why not do both? Mixing neutral cabinet doors with other cabinets which feature a pop of colour is a fun use of colour. Some people go for neutral lower cabinets coupled with colourful upper cabinets. You can also choose a colourful island bench as a standalone feature. If you’re not sure which colours go together, consult a colour wheel – you can easily find them online.


A twist on traditional white

Just because you like a neutral look doesn’t mean you have to settle for white or cream. There are plenty of colours which still lend themselves to the neutral look, while also adding some interest. Shades of pale blue or pale mint green can be very effective in a classic kitchen, and grey is still a favourite on the neutral palette.


Reflect your personality

It’s not much use having the perfect, white kitchen when it really doesn’t suit your own personal style. After all, you’re the one using the kitchen so you need to enjoy it! Think about the style of the rest of the house and what colours bring you joy so you can incorporate this into the colour of your cabinet doors. Do you love yellow’s ability to brighten up your day? Think about using it on your cabinet doors!
