Unexpected Pop of Color: Kitchen Cabinets

I love white cabinets. I really do. We painted our old kitchen cabinets white and it completely transformed the space, like shockingly different. I also painted my mom’s kitchen cabinets white and it refreshed the room. Then of course we chose white cabinets in our new house as well.

But if I didn’t redesign every room in my home after a hot minute, then I might have tried something bold… an unexpected pop of color on the kitchen cabinets.

I mean just look at these mint green cabinets.
Love the mix of rattan chairs and those glass pendants.

How about just a pop of red at the kitchen island?

This light blue is bold and bright, but makes this country kitchen smile.

Classic black? I adore this clean look.

Green with a bit of dark wax? Gorgeous.

Or how about something bright and cheerful
like this buttery yellow kitchen?

Can’t commit to a full kitchen of painted cabinets?
How about the two tone look?

I’m simply loving the mix of green and white.

And my new favorite, navy blue island with white cabinets.

So, would you ever paint your cabinets in unexpected color?
Or try the two tone look?

    I would love to paint ALL of my cabinets, but my hubster is dead set against it. He doesn’t even like colored walls, but I just paint them anyway! I think doing the cabinets would push him over the edge! :-) Thankfully when we built our house, the builder used a great local cabinet maker and I have high quality oak cabinets that still look almost new (16 years later). I love the navy and white cabinets, too. I’m also on a big turquoise kick right now so I’m pretty much diggin’ the turquoise cabinets.
