White cabinetry in kitchens has been popular for quite a few years now. As much as I love the clean, classic look, I'm starting to feel like all of these white kitchens look the same. I'd have the same reaction if fashion designers kept sending white oxford shirts down the runway season after season (even though I love white oxford shirts).
There are a variety of ways to add color and interest to an all white kitchen including easy additions like rugs or bold countertop accessories. For the more daring, however, safe white paint is disregarded and color is brought into the space through richly-hued tile or painted cabinets. Since I'm hungry for a different look, I've been noticing non-white cabinetry lately. And since I'm obsessed with blue, I've really been loving the blue cabinetry I keep seeing. Here are some examples of how many shades of blue can work in a kitchen...

What do you think of blue cabinetry? Would you ever want it in your kitchen?
I completely agree with the white kithen trend. Boring! We actually have blue cabinets from Ikea in our kitchen courtesy of our landlords and I love them. So to answer your question, yes, I would want them in my kitchen.ReplyDelete
I really like the painted cabinet trend...the peacock blue and grays being my favorites, however, I'll always have a soft spot for a classic white kitchen.ReplyDelete
Yes, Even I am in the favor of blue color cabinets because it looks great and very attractive...!!!ReplyDelete
I adore the first image from Lonny mag! So great.ReplyDelete
Love... You're making me want to paint over my green cabinets!!ReplyDelete
When we moved into our current house, the cabinets were painted blue, almost identical to the pic from House and Home. They were unfortunately paired with a semi-gloss peach wall paint, and the look was not so lovely. While I loved them in and of themselves, we opted to paint them white, simply for resale (and ditched the glossy peach paint). In our part of the country, white cabinets are not everywhere, so white is still new and fresh to our general real estate market. Blue cabinets would be a reach for most people. A little part of me wishes that we would have kept the built-in breakfast cabinetry blue, but oh well! I keep thinking of the BM color - Van Duessen blue. It would look fab on cabinets!ReplyDelete
