Kitchen cabinets that aren’t white
For years, many kitchen renovations have focused on white cabinets.
While popular, this choice can be uninspiring and often difficult to keep clean. Here are three ideas for your kitchen cabinets that will stand the test of time but have a bit more personality than white alone.
1. Blonde wood
Naturally pale wood combines the fresh, airy feel of white cabinets with the warm, homey feel of a cottage kitchen. Think light-coloured Nordic influences rather than the dark, lacquered stains from decades past.
Grey cabinets are great for kitchens because they’re neutral but add the kind of visual interest that you can’t get with white. No matter your style, there’s a grey that will work for your kitchen. Go for an almost-white tone for an unexpected twist or try a charcoal hue for a more dramatic, elegant look.
There’s no rule that says all cabinets have to be same. Double down on the grey trend by painting the lowers charcoal and the uppers a pale grey to make your ceilings look higher. Or experiment with colour by pairing a bold-hued island with natural wood cabinets.
Choosing one of these stylish options will add character to your kitchen in a way that white cabinets alone can’t.
