Simply Gorgeous Grays

The desire for gray cabinets has risen exponentially, bringing a chic sophistication to kitchens and baths. A versatile neutral, gray highlights the trend for sleek and elegant cabinet door styles without stealing too much attention from the surroundings. Deep, mineral-tone gray cabinets paired with lighter gray cabinets add a cool contrast to your space.

Whites and Off-Whites

Cues From Mother Nature

Mother's always right; never failing in her enduring sense of color or style. Kitchen and bath color palettes are exuding Mother Nature's best, from the hues of golden wheat fields to variations of fresh foliage green. Cabinet colors and finishes evoking clouds, fog or mist carry an atmospheric beauty while bringing a natural calmness to interiors.

Growth of Green

Lime surpasses yellow as the bright new cabinet color trend. Other vivacious greens come in a vast range of shades to meet a variety of tastes. Baths begin to feel like a tropical oasis with vibrant colors that evoke lush green landscapes. Cabinetry with frosted glass inserts or dramatic wood swirls enhance this refreshing look.

Cool, Comfortable Blues

Working well with the neutral palette, blues are an especially soothing option for today's baths and kitchens. Pale, spa blues and muted colors of the sky and sea provide a classic complement to cabinets with a raw wood finish, creating a space fit for comfort and relaxing.

Refined Neutrals and Earth Tones

Neutral cabinet colors that offer unique designability are a popular choice as more homeowners decide to stay in one home longer. Providing visual warmth, these new earthy, neutral color palettes seamlessly blend with the rest of the home. Mineral tones highlighting ore, graphite and slate transfer a deep-in-the-earth sense of stability to a space.

Depth of Color

Color isn't limited to the surface. New trends show color going to magical new depths, laying a stable foundation for a vast range of palettes for kitchens and baths. Classic grays increase intensity. Blues reflect the deep sea with inky-black and indigo influences. Browns get bolder with heavy chestnut undertones. Dark monochrome designs unfold in kitchens with deep, dark finishes and baths with shiny black surfaces.

Color Blocking

Berry Delicious
