10 Popular Kitchen Cabinet Colors

How to Choose A Kitchen Cabinet Color

It's one thing to design your home to be suitable for resale. Designing it to reflect your personality, interests, and style is quite another thing. When looking for the ideal color for your kitchen cabinet, there are some important factors to consider:

  • The style of your home: If you have a traditional home, you might want to opt for darker stain tones or creamy white. And if your house is modern, you can play with different colors depending on your preferences. 

  • The color of your kitchen: Decide if you want the cabinet color to stand out or blend in with your kitchen color. If your walls are light, you may want to choose a darker cabinet color. 

  • The intended feel of your kitchen: If your space is small, darker cabinets can generally make it look smaller, while light cabinets can make it look larger.

10 Popular Kitchen Cabinet Colors

Selecting the best kitchen cabinet colors can feel like hard work with so many colors, but don't worry. This post reveals some of the most popular and beautiful colors you can choose from.  Let’s see.  

1. White Kitchen Cabinets (and other Neutrals)

Timeless; never goes out of style - that's white. If you choose white cabinets, your kitchen will not only look spotless, bright, and elegant, but you will also have the freedom to combine them with any other color of your choice. Whether your home is traditional or modern in style, white is always a favorite. However, the downside of white cabinets is that they are prone to stains and require extra care to maintain their shine.

If crisp white isn’t your fave, another neutral shade is just fine. For a timeless look, I always go back to a light neutral with depth, like linen or taupe. Not only does it work well in spaces big or small, but it always serves to highlight marble and quartzite countertops along with popular finishes like brass, polished nickel, and iron.

2. Black Kitchen Cabinets

A step away from the norm. If you want to add a bold, luxurious accent, black cabinets are a great choice regardless of the style of your home, especially if your space is large.


If you have a small kitchen with little natural light, black cabinets can make the room look smaller. In this case, you should choose a light wall color, like white, to contrast with the darker cabinets. But overall, black is a timeless color, and just like white, you can combine it with various other wall colors to spice things up.

3. Dark Green Kitchen Cabinets
