Your cabinets are easily one of the main focuses of your kitchen space, as the solid colors are typically used to frame the look of countertops and appliances within the room. However with so many design trends turning to neutral palettes, it is equally important to highlight your beautiful cabinets as part of your design, whether playing them up with accessories or downplaying them to let your paint and countertops do the talking. No matter what you decide for your space, consider these three simple ideas for showcasing the very best of the cabinets in your kitchen.
Choose an Eye-catching Door Color
Because the doors of your cabinets are one the most visible parts of your kitchen, it is important to choose an eye catching color for your design. Some of the more popular brights for the past year include colors such as mint, sage, and even navy on cabinet doors. To create an element of visual balance in your kitchen design, opt for a cabinet door that contrasts with the paint on your walls or tile. If you have lighter paint or tile on your walls, consider a darker color for your cabinets to bring your cabinet design to life.
Accessorize with Hardware
No matter which colors you decide on for your walls or cabinets, you can always either highlight or downplay your cabinets with the right hardware and accessories. To neutralize a bold, darker cabinet color such as navy, turn to subtle hardware with simple designs for a clean yet beautiful look in your kitchen. For a more adventurous look with lighter or neutral cabinet colors such as white or light grey, accessorize with bold hardware that ties the colors of your design together into one cohesive look.
Painted pulls are another simple yet creative way to add an eye-catching element to your cabinets. Rather than accentuating your cabinets with a bold door color, painted pulls incorporate a subtle yet striking color without going overboard. Test painted pulls or hardware for your cabinetry by taping them to one of your cabinets to determine whether or not the design catches your eye when you are in the room. This will give you a sense of whether or not the colors work well together in your kitchen. Like any other element of interior design in your home, it is best to spend time considering your options before making a semi-permanent design change to your kitchen.
