Choosing the right color for your kitchen cabinets might appear easy in theory. However, it can throw some tough challenges (and unpleasant surprises) when you start remodeling your kitchen in practices. No wonder then why kitchen remodel experts always advise proper planning beforehand.
When it comes to choosing the right kitchen cabinet colors, one of the common challenges that many homeowners face is determination of the right color combination of various components and kitchen accessories such as the flooring, countertops, backsplashes and so on.
In this guide, we share how to work with dark grey kitchen cabinets in order to hit the right color combination in your kitchen space.
Pair Dark Grey with Warm Colors/Materials
While many people would play safe and choose whiter shades for their kitchen cabinets, they end up creating a kitchen decor that mere mimics other kitchens. In order to stand out, you need to play bold and choose dark grey which opens up umpteen possibilities for your kitchen remodel project.
As a matter of fact, the darker shades of grey are most suitable for modern decor. However, in order to achieve the best results, you need to pair them with the right color for your accessories.
By and large, the kitchen space is supposed to be warm and inviting. With dark grey kitchen cabinets, your kitchen might look austere and cold. Therefore, make it a point to pair them with warm materials and accessories such as wooden floor, bold accents in yellow shades, white accessories and stainless steel door knobs and handles. When you strike the right color balance, your cabinetry will pop and anchor the entire kitchen in the right direction.
Keep the Palette Neutral
Another key aspect of remodeling your kitchen is treating it as a canvas. This essentially you need to keep it neutral and avoid crowding it with too many colors. For example, if you’re using white marble on your countertops or wooden floor, you need to choose the backsplash or walls in a neutral color. When you keep the color palette neutral, your dark grey cabinets perfectly compliment the kitchen accessories, creating an elegant ambience in combination.
Use Lighter Shades for Your Surrounding Components
If you remodeling a small kitchen, you need to make sure it remains airy and bright. With dark grey kitchen cabinets, use light shades for your accessories and more importantly, use white paints for your walls. Additionally, don’t forget to use industrial lighting and bright colors accents such as green or yellow chairs or wall paintings.
