Choosing The Right Kitchen Cabinet Colour

Kitchens are one room in the house that can be expensive to design and there are several elements to consider when choosing the right colour for you kitchen cabinets. Start with the least flexible elements of the room like flooring or countertops and worry about less about matching to easier and more cost effective items to change like wall colours or trim.


For granite and any material you choose it’s best to keep it neutral. Aside from cabinets the most expensive part of the kitchen can be the countertops. By staying with a neutral colour, it allows you to change the wall colour or appliances at a later date to give it a fresh look which is not as pricey as new countertops.


When choosing kitchen cabinets consider the undertones of the wood. Some have a warmer or cooler tone and the stain will bring this out even more. Woods such as Maple can be glazed or painted to give your kitchen a very different look.


A big impact can be made if you choose the right backsplash with so much selection available from painted ones to glass tiles. The backsplash should complement the countertop as one element in your overall design.


Get samples of the countertop material, backsplash, cabinets and paint choices then look at them together in natural daylight. Then how will they look in the artificial light of the room where they will be installed?.

Paint Colours

Pick colours you love and reflect your personality. Don’t be afraid to go with more saturated colours in the kitchen. There is very little wall space in the kitchen with all the cabinets and appliances so the paint colour serves as a frame to accent the other elements.

Be Flexible

Prepare to make compromises as you go through the process, revisions will need to be made.

Choosing the colour of your kitchen cabinets in Victoria BC is part of having the kitchen of your dreams. As you can see other elements will enhance the finished look.
