Most kitchen cabinets are monochromatic, but one of the easiest ways to add dynamic color to your kitchen is to mix and match colors. Consider doors and cabinets with contrasting colors, or alternate colors between high and low cabinets. And keep in mind that colorful cabinets can be used to accent a kitchen space when creating large kitchen islands.

In terms of cabinet color choices, browns and whites tend to dominate in kitchens—but yellows can add some sunshine, and blues can be both calming and stylish. Greys add a stately feel, and rich browns work well in modern kitchens as well. Pops of red can add playfulness and a vintage air.

In terms of finishes, the first choice to make is whether to go with matte, glossy or semi-gloss. Often a function of personal style, your choice should also include whether to reflect or contrast the finish of your kitchen wall paint here. Once you've decided on the finish style, you can explore whether paint or stain is best for you. Stains now come in a variety of colors, but wood grain will more or less always show through when using stain, whereas paints will disguise the grain.
