No matter what style you're trying to achieve in the kitchen, you can't go wrong with open shelving and framed artwork. Design by RMSer Biolau.
It's the New Black
Play up the contrast of white walls by painting kitchen cabinets black. The sleek black cabinets in this neutral kitchen add an understated gleam to the modern space. Light wood countertops bring a dose of warmth, and stainless appliances finish off the clean look.
Add Comfort With Warm Beige
Warm beige adds a relaxed feel to this gourmet kitchen from the 2009 HGTV Dream Home. Paired with gray countertops and walls, the soothing cabinet color keeps the space charming instead of drab.
Go Bold With the Island
One of the hottest trends in kitchen cabinets is an island featuring a dramatic hue. Surrounding white cabinets set the scene, but an onyx island brings high style to this traditional kitchen. Design by RMSer myuncommonsliceofsuburbia.
Gray is a refined, classic shade, but it also evokes a more modern feel than its black counterpart. Designer David Stimmel chose a hand-applied painted sheen for these birch cabinets, which allows a hint of the natural wood grain to peek through the soft gray tone.
Keep an eye on the kids while cooking dinner by integrating their playroom into the kitchen. Designer David Bromstad paints the lower cabinets with chalkboard paint for playtime, while the upper cabinets get a bold red treatment.
Mix It Up
Can't decide on one color for your cabinets? Paint the top and bottom cabinets different colors. Since blue and yellow are complementary hues, they're the perfect combination for this Old World kitchen. Design by Linda Adams.
