Using Color in the Kitchen

White kitchens are timeless. Homeowners appreciate their bright, clean feeling. Even the smallest kitchen can appear more spacious with white finishes. They work well in every style of home. We love a white kitchen.

But we also love it when our clients want their personality to shine in their kitchen. We encourage clients who want a truly unique kitchen to explore using different colors and finishes on their cabinets and countertops.

Painted cabinetry has become increasingly popular in recent years. Using paint to create two-toned kitchen cabinets brings visual interest to your space. This works really well in a kitchen that is lacking color or architectural details. Homeowners might choose to use two complementary colors. Another great option is to use two shades of the same color. Use one color or shade on the upper cabinets and the other on the lower. The kitchen island is a smart place for a pop of color. Choose one color for the cabinetry throughout the kitchen and another for just the base of the island. We also love the idea of combining painted finishes and natural or stained wood. Beautiful dark wood finishes on lower cabinets stand out when the upper cabinets are painted in a light neutral shade.

Do you prefer a more neutral finish on your cabinetry? Consider bringing in color through your countertop choice. Because HearthWood Kitchens offers a large selection of countertop materials, color and pattern choices are practically limitless. Granite countertops are still very popular, mainly because they are elegant yet durable and easy to maintain. Granite is also available in a wide range of colors. Engineered stone, solid surface, and laminate are also options that shouldn’t be overlooked because they offer a huge variety of pattern and choices. If you want a one-of-a-kind kitchen, talk to us about unique countertop materials such as concrete, copper, and wood.
