Designing a new kitchen involves carefully considering many factors such as style, function and space. For some people, choosing a kitchen’s color scheme is a challenge; with so many different shades and color trends, it can be difficult to decide which paint finish is right for your kitchen cabinets. Whether you’re starting from scratch or need that extra push, our top 5 most popular paint finishes will help inspire your dream kitchen. To visualize any of these colors in your kitchen, simply order a cabinetry finish chip or door sample.
1. DOVE WHITE
We’ve shared reasons why white kitchens have plenty of staying power in a blog post, and there are so many ways to achieve a white kitchen without choosing stark white paint. Our most popular finish, Dove White (pictured above on maple cabinets), is a clean, soft shade of white that works exceptionally well in any style kitchen.
Another variety of white, Canvas (pictured above on maple cabinets), is our second most popular finish. Similar to Dove White, this finish makes a bold statement when paired with contrasting cabinets.
3. PEBBLE GREY
For those who want a neutral aesthetic without any white, Pebble Grey is a great finish color option. Pictured above on maple cabinets, Pebble Grey’s lighter hue pairs well with almost any color and works well in modern kitchen designs.
On the opposite end of the grey spectrum is Greyloft, a darker, bolder grey. As explained in a previous blog post, dark is the new neutral, and Greyloft (pictured above on maple cabinets) is the perfect solution for a timeless kitchen with character.
Last but not least is Mushroom (pictured above on maple cabinets). A true neutral, Mushroom’s creamy-beige color creates warmth – the ideal characteristic for a cozy, inviting kitchen.
