While white or light-colored cabinets are still the norm in many homes, dark cabinets — particularly in deep shades of blue — are gaining popularity. Rich, dark colors give a feeling of extravagance and elegance. They can be edgy and add drama and visual stimulation to your kitchen. At the same time, dark cabinets feel cozy and comforting with careful designing. Let’s take a look at how a few Cincinnati homeowners used dark cabinets in their recent Legacy Builders Group remodels.
The homeowners of this kitchen chose to pair their dark blue cabinets with white walls — a classic combination. The rich cabinets combine with the straight, clean lines and simple geometry of their range hood, backsplash, and cabinet door panels to fit their contemporary style perfectly. Brass knobs and drawer pulls add a further touch of luxury and sophistication.
Gorgeous in Green
Want to make a statement but also keep your kitchen warm and inviting? Dark green cabinets are an attractive option. Green is a symbol of nature, springtime, and renewal. The contrast of light and dark cabinets creates a cheerful, welcoming energy — an ideal space to cook a warm meal with a loved one or cozy up with a cup of coffee.
Lively Laundry Room
If you’re not ready to make such a bold statement in the heart of your home, the laundry room is a perfect spot to try dark cabinets. Since most guests won’t be visiting a utility room, you can feel safe to sample this trend and see how you like it. If you fall in love with the look (and who wouldn’t?), you can continue it in your kitchen.
Small but Mighty
Think dark cabinets will only work in a large room? Not necessarily! In this laundry room, the cabinets are staggered to break up the blocks of color. There is also plenty of contrasting white to brighten up the space and keep it looking open.
Dark cabinets are a wonderfully versatile way to style to a kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room. Sophisticated and elegant, clean and classic, they work with any décor and in any size room. Curious how dark cabinets can work in your home? Contact us for a consultation.
