Trending | The New Hot Colors For Cabinetry

I often get asked what won’t go out of style. People what to know what is classic and timeless that they can put in their home so they don’t have the pay to have it re-done over and over when it goes out of style. There are a lot of classic elements however, even classic styles can be edged out by other trendy elements that are making their debut. For cabinetry colors, we’re talking about white. For so long, the white, minimalist, clean kitchen was super hot. Put a white kitchen in your home and you’ll never look back. However, the trend in cabinet colors is changing (which you might have already noticed from Pinterest) and white cabinets are as much the hot thing anymore. So what is?

Blue. And green. Cabinetry is taking a turn away from the bright look and going a little more earthy and moody. Having blue or green or even a blue-grey kitchen or bathroom is starting to feel a little more modern while white is becoming more traditional. Thats ok, though! We still love a white kitchen and do think white kitchens will be beautiful for a long time, but we have to pay our respects to the next hottest thing too.

With the re-emergence of earth tones and lightly stained white oak, the contrast blue provides with this wood tone gives a space lots of depth. Not to mention how fun brass hardware looks against blue cabinetry.

Let’s be clear, though, white countertops are still 100% in. So design hasn’t completely abandoned that white element. And many homeowners are even mixing some white cabinetry with some blue or green or gray cabinetry PLUS adding a dash of natural wood tones. So it’s really more about mixing, now.

We’re not super biased either way and since we’ve always considered blue and green neutrals, this works for us! Take a look at how it can play out:

Color Talk | 2018 Blue Hues

We know!  You're sick of grey...and beige...and grey beige.  You want color.  But you don't want to be overwhelmed by color so you're trying to figure out the best way to incorporate it without overdoing it.  Blue is a great color for a;,pst amy space.  Depending on the shade, ti can be dark and moody for a bedroom or light and airy for a common area like a great room or dining room.  Accoring to Houzz, there are certain go-to blue hues that are guaranteed to make the statement you want!
 

We still love muted blues with grey in them so Skylight by Farrow and Ball is a great option.  It can really work in common areas or bedrooms because the mix of blue and grey make it versatile.

If you want to go with a little brighter that can be more bedroomy...although we've seen it used throughout entire homes, Retiring Blue by Sherwin Williams is a clear blue-green (mostly blue) that leaves your home feeling light and bright and almost beachy!

This next blue is very mature and would be perfect for a master bathroom or even a guest room.  It has almost no green in it but isn't too powdery or baby-blueish like a lot of pale true blues.  It's just nice and calm--First Snowfall by Benjamin Moore,

Going much more green and feeling super springy is Watermark by Behr.  Again, we see it as a bedroom/bathroom color but it's calm enough to  work in other spaces too.

The perfect dining room color is Winter Ice by Benjamin Moore and we can't forget about one of our favorite go-tos---Silver Strand by Sherwin Williams.

All-in-all, we consider blue to be a neutral and love mixing it in.  Blue is classic and can really work in almost any part of the home as long as it's paired with the right mix of other items.  It really is one of our favorite colors!
