10 Best Kitchen Cabinet Colors to Consider in Your Remodel

Deciding what color to paint your kitchen cabinets can be overwhelming.

With so many colors available, the pressure of trying to match them with your countertops and appliances, as well as trying to ensure your kitchen is aesthetically pleasing, it's normal to struggle making a decision.

Which kitchen cabinet colors go best with which countertops? What about stainless steel appliances? What colors are the most popular?

If you're asking yourself these kinds of questions, wonder no longer, because we're here to help!

In this article, we'll go over 10 kitchen cabinet colors, as well as what color countertop and appliances go best with those colors, so your decision can be that much easier.

Now then, let's get started!

1. White

You just can't go wrong with classic, all-white kitchen cabinets. It's a clean look that brightens up your entire kitchen and can add a ton of energy to the room.

The best part? The white cabinets match everything. That means you can choose any color countertop or appliances, and everything will flow together beautifully.

If you really want to get crazy, you can pair white with another color and create a fun, two-toned kitchen cabinet look.

2. Off-White

Classic white cabinets are nice, but for some people, too much white can make things feel just a little too plain. If you want a clean look that's maybe not as bright, off-white cabinets could be the perfect option for you and your kitchen

You'll get some of the same benefits of white cabinets, meaning it'll be easy to match countertops and appliances. Also, these are a bit easier to clean than all-white cabinets, which is an added bonus.

3. Dark Gray

Dark gray, as well as any other shade of gray, for that matter, is one of the most popular kitchen cabinet colors available at the moment.

Gray is another neutral color, meaning it'll go well with everything else in your kitchen. That being said, gray can makes things feel a bit dark, depending on the shade you choose, so they look especially great paired with a white countertop and stainless steel appliances, to give the room a little vibrancy and shine.

4. Dark Brown

Wood-colored kitchen cabinets will always be in style, and dark oak cabinets look great in just about any kitchen. Dark brown cabinets pair well with stainless steel appliances and other earth tone colored countertops.

Also, if you have a breakfast nook, consider an oak table, as it will tie into the dark brown kitchen cabinets perfectly.

5. Black

Black kitchen cabinets are somewhat rare but can really make a kitchen stand out if executed correctly. Because the color black will call attention imperfections in the wood, a material other than wood, like polyethylene, works best.

Black goes well with white and stainless steel, but you could probably make other colors work too if you have any practice with color theory.

Also, if you're going to be painting your kitchen cabinets yourself, be sure to do so properly. Believe it or not, there is a way to incorrectly paint cabinets that could damage them, which means you'd have to replace them.

6. Mint Green

Colors, especially those on your walls and cabinets, can really affect your mood. That's why choosing the right colors in an area like your kitchen, where you no doubt spend a lot of time, is so important.

Mint green kitchen cabinets can help give your kitchen a fun, vintage feel that is sure to improve your mood each time you walk into the room.

They look great with white countertops and white appliances, but you can't go wrong with wood countertops and stainless steel appliances, either.

7. Dark Green

There's something about earth tones in the kitchen that just feels right. Forest green cabinets are unique and can help you pull off a farmhouse style look if that's what you're going for.

Dark green cabinets really make white or off-white countertops pop. Also, they're not that common, so your kitchen could stand out over everyone else's!

8. Mint Blue

If you like mint green kitchen cabinets, but aren't crazy about green, mint blue might be just what you're looking for.

Just like mint green, mint blue cabinets go well with white and light wood color. And again, the vibe that this style of the kitchen creates is almost unmatched. The color scheme really works well and creates a fun atmosphere.

9. Navy Blue

If you're really trying to nail down that farmhouse look, but aren't a fan of forest green, navy blue may be worth considering. Especially if a dash of nautical style interests you.

Navy blue kitchen cabinets can really make white countertops and appliances pop, and most likely, provide a look unlike anything else in your neighborhood.

10. Yellow

Depending on what shade of yellow you choose, yellow kitchen cabinets can be a bit loud. But maybe you like loud, so yellow kitchen cabinets work for you.

If bright yellow, polyethylene cabinets aren't you're style, faded yellow wooden cabinets could give your kitchen that desired flair you're looking for.
