The kitchen is often thought of as the heart of the home — but it also contributes to your lifestyle. After all, one-third of homeowners said they switched to a healthier lifestyle after opting for kitchen remodeling. That may be because we eat with our eyes first. And if we prepare and enjoy our food in a place that’s visually appealing, we might be more inclined to seek out better choices (rather than opting for mere comfort).
But whether your goal is to reduce the junk in your diet or to streamline the look of your kitchen, it’s true that even the smallest of changes can make a big impact. Kentucky remodelers will tell you that you may not even need a complete tear-down to make your kitchen work more effectively for your home. And if you decide to do major kitchen renovations, you shouldn’t forget about the small details — like the color of your kitchen cabinets.
Believe it or not, cabinet color can virtually transform a room and how you feel when you’re in it. Want to know which color trends Kentucky remodelers are seeing in 2020? Let’s take a look at a few of our favorites.
- Gray and Greige: You know what they say — if it’s not broke, don’t fix it. Gray and gray-beige (often referred to as “griege”) have remained popular color choices in residential remodels for years. But that doesn’t mean they still can’t be used to great effect. Light gray cabinets can be a welcome alternative to stark white, as they’ll bring more warmth and character into the space, while deep grays with cooler undertones can allow a space to feel a bit more modern and dramatic.
- Bold Blues: With so many tones of blue available, you’ll be sure to find one that works well in your kitchen. You can go light for a barely-there hue or a rich navy for a dark neutral. Peacock blue has also become a popular option, acting as the midway point between a dreamy green and a bold blue. Sure, it makes a statement, but it can be a great one if you complement it with lighter, natural tones throughout the room.
- All Shades of Pink: Would you ever dare to think pink in your kitchen? This color is becoming more popular than you might assume. Deep raspberry and beet colors can make for a beautiful island or lower cabinet color scheme, while light blush can act as your soft neutral. While these tones will bring a sense of quirkiness to the kitchen, they aren’t so radical that they’ll look out of place.
Whether you’re more traditional or are willing to think outside of the (crayon) box, your Kentucky remodelers can act as a great guide when deciding on kitchen cabinet colors and other design elements.
