​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.

I never thought getting my garage floor painted would make so many of my friends jealous! You did such a meticulous job, especially on the details. I especially appreciated the time you took to explain all the necessary steps to complete a quality job. We are so glad we hired you. I am already thinking about some additional work for this spring.

I am so happy we chose to work with Spectrum Painting! The office manager Natalie was very responsive in setting up our estimate. Initially Rich came our for a detailed estimate and walk through. After going through the numbers and reviews we decided to go with Spectrum. Although they did not offer the lowest cost we felt like we knew what we were paying for. We were in the process of moving into our new home in Wayne, NJ so we would not be onsite to project manage daily. On the day our project began, Rich and his crew leader Brian met us at the house to walk through the project and colors. Brian was absolutely amazing to work with. He would call or text with daily updates and even sent some photos to make sure we were happy with the colors we chose. I felt completely comfortable leaving Brian and his team at our house for the full week alone to complete the project. Everyone was extremely professional, kept the place clean, and wore masks, which is important to us because I am pregnant and my husband has an auto-immune disease. I can not recommend Spectrum Painting enough! Though they didn't offer us the lowest cost estimate there work was worth it! If anyone is looking for a painter reach out to their team. You won't be disappointed!
