​Cabinet Paint Color Trends to Try Today

1. Bold Color Versus Muted

When it comes to cabinetry paint colors right now, anything goes! We love the bold and bright cabinet color trends featured in the magazines and on Pinterest lately, but will we still love those trendy bold hues in a year or two? You can have the best of both worlds when it comes to cabinet color -- a fun color that you'll love for years to come with an easy compromise.

A smart compromise is to consider choosing a muted color versus a bolder color. Muted colors have more gray and white in the undertone, which diffuses the intensity of the color pigmentation, giving the color more staying power because the color is less intense. Muted colors, like this bathroom vanity color painted in a beautiful green from Farrow and Ball called Green Blue #84 can be timeless. Other popular muted paint colors to consider are Benjamin Moore Smoke, Behr Tequila, Sherwin Williams Halcyon Green, and Benjamin Moore Aegean Teal.

2. Transitional Colors

Transitional colors are another way to compromise when comes to bold cabinet colors. Transitional colors feature a balance of warm and cool undertones, and because of that combination, these colors pair well with many others. Plus, these classic colors won't go out of style.

For example, instead of choosing a cool blue paint color for your cabinets, consider a blue that has both warm and cool undertones in the color like Kentucky Haze from Benjamin Moore used on this butler's pantry cabinetry. Benjamin Moore Moonshine, Sherwin Williams Rainwashed, Benjamin Moore Yarmouth Blue, and Behr English Channel are other popular transitional paint colors for cabinetry.

3. Gray Versus Greige

Gray continues to be one of the most popular trends right now in cabinet paint colors, but will it still be the big trend in the next two to four years? It's impossible to predict how long gray is going to top the paint trend charts, so if you like the idea of a gray but want to make sure you choose a gray with staying power, consider a greige color (gray/beige combination). Greige colors also can be transitional colors that can work with a wider range of various colors and undertones throughout a space versus a limiting cool gray.

A beautiful greige color like Pratt and Lambert Ever Classic, used on this bathroom vanity from Erin at Image via Everyday Interior Design is a good compromise and will look stylish today and tomorrow. Other popular greige cabinet colors are Sherwin Williams Eider White, Sherwin Williams Repose Gray, and Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal.

4. Classic with a Twist

Classics like navy, black, and white always will be popular picks for cabinet paint colors. To add a twist to a classic, choose a color like a navy that has a hint of gray or purple in the undertone. This brings a richness and character to an otherwise traditional color and adds complexity and depth. It's that rich depth that gives a color its staying power.

Hale Navy from Benjamin Moore used on the kitchen cabinets above is a great example of classic color with a twist. The rich gray undertone in the deep blue makes this color one of the most popular cabinet paint colors on the market today because of the interesting undertone combination. More popular classic cabinet colors with unique undertones to consider are Behr White Mink, Benjamin Moore Stunning, Benjamin Moore Evening Dove, and Benjamin Moore French Beret.

5. Bright White Versus Creamy White

White continues to be another popular cabinet paint color choice for designers and homeowners alike, and it's one of the strongest trends in paint color right now. White is a classic and timeless color, but paint companies forecast the bright and cool whites popular today will warm up and trend toward creamier white.

White with a hint of warmth like Alabaster by Sherwin Williams, used on the built-in cabinetry above, is a beautiful alternative to bright or cool white. Other popular timeless whites to consider for cabinetry are Benjamin Moore Decorator's White or Benjamin Moore Simply White.

6. Make a Statement

Another easy way to make your cabinetry color stand out is to choose a color that will contrast the room's wall color. The contrasting Kentucky Haze by Benjamin Moore on the cabinets above in this otherwise light space draws your eye and makes a beautiful statement. By keeping the wall color light in a space and choosing a rich cabinet color, the cabinet color will become the star of the show.

People happy with our services

Crew was courteous and appeared to be well trained. Work done in a neat and efficient manner.

We hired Spectrum to paint, wallpaper, remove wallpaper, build a closet, remove popcorn ceilings, and other related jobs that came up. Each day I was greeted with a smile and handshake from the crew leader and his team. At the end of the day, their enthusiasm was as strong as it was in the morning. Just an amazing group of dedicated, hardworking people. They finished our condo in record time, covered our floors and furniture, what little we had. I am sorry that we have to stop at 5 stars. They deserve at least double that number! We moved into a condo and they were careful also about the common areas, putting down tarps and board to keep the dust off the rugs and not track onto the carpet. The building staff was so appreciative!

I just had a few rooms painted by Rich's great team, Rafael and Marcin. They were extremely pleasant and courteous. They spent time carefully prepping the area. Their work was absolutely flawless. There was one area of the ceiling that was haphazardly patched before - a cap screwed into a former light fixture that looked terrible and I asked for them to somehow make it disappear. I couldn't believe when I walked in...you couldn't tell there was ever a cap or fixture or any spackling/hiding: like it never happened. I highly recommended Spectrum!

The best crew! Very respectful to the project, people and property. Professional work attire, responsive crew leader. Handled the job like it was his own house!

We had Spectrum Painting power wash and paint the outside of our house. They did such a fantastic job that we tripled the scope of the project during the process and the results are phenomenal. We wound up having them do the siding, window trim, doors, lights and much more. The end results is better then I expected. The entire Spectrum team was amazing throughout the process and on several occasions went above and beyond. I would highly recommend them.

Crew was very helpful and easy to work with. Rafael was very helpful and solved the issue of what color to use for the roofs.

Spectrum was very professional and they did a great job with every aspect of the job. They were friendly and helpful, had ideas for future projects and worked quickly and really took care in the staining of the deck. Everyone on the team was courteous.
