Into the Woods
Dark painted cabinets—like these in plum—can actually enhance wood tones and bring special warmth to a kitchen. Black granite countertops and stainless steel appliances add their own dramatic accents to the space.
The soft, green-painted cabinets give this kitchen an inviting country feel. The bold pop of yellow on the center island complements a similar, softer hue on the walls.
Black and White
Even a small kitchen with basic cabinets can become bold and beautiful when colored with the right hue. These painted cabinets in chartreuse brighten the mood of this kitchen—and no doubt its owner, too.
Create a warm and inviting country kitchen with red cabinetry. Here, open shelving, a display of plates, and etched glass add charm to the already red hot space.
A Touch of Taupe
The French provincial kitchen is among the most iconic in kitchen design, serving as inspiration for aspiring chefs the world over. Crown molding, porcelain handles, and other details reinforce the design— with a soft taupe paint lending a certain je ne sais quoi to the finished look.
Mix and Match
The indecisive homeowner need not fret over choosing one (or even two) cabinet colors. The kitchen cabinets in this artist's and designer's shared home took no fewer than four bright colors. Matching hardware and neutral walls ensure that the result remains playful yet sophisticated.
