How To Choose Your Kitchen Cabinet Colour

unit colour

Our range of cabinetry looks beautiful in a variety of colours; black, purple, green white and many others. So when you have all of the colours of the rainbow to choose from, how can you possibly decide on your kitchen cabinet colour? 

With all the possibilities and options for you to choose from, choosing your kitchen cabinet colour can be a daunting task. The colour you choose for your kitchen has a large impact on your kitchen’s result. With a simple switch of colour, you have the power to turn a classic kitchen into a contemporary one. A common kitchen remodelling myth is that paint colours look the same in every space. So, you must buy testers and create a swatch in your chosen area so you can see the colour for yourself. 

For inspiration, take a look at the gallery below and see the palettes chosen by our customers. But, if you need additional help, we hope that these ideas will spark some inspiration!


If you are feeling brave and would like to make a statement with your kitchen cabinet colour, pick colours that are opposite each other on the colour wheel. This colour theme is perfect to choose if you would like to add a punch of personality to your space.

You don’t have to solely focus on the colour of your cabinets though. Think about what colour you may paint your walls and the colour of the furnishing you will add to the space too- all of these colours will affect the theme!

You can achieve this style in several ways by pairing your white walls with a bright kitchen cupboard colour. Alternatively, you could opt for a neutral colour cabinet colour and add a pop of colour to your kitchen island.

Tonal Kitchen Colour Ideas

This technique is where you choose a base colour and use variations of it throughout the space. This theme is great for both minimalist, modern kitchens and traditional kitchens with its clean aesthetic that is sophisticated yet understated. Having a tonal colour scheme is also a great way to inject harmony and balance into the space.

Many of those who opt for a tonal colour scheme choose muted colours. However, it is important to note that to create a vibrant space, you can also use brighter colours too.

Harmonious Paint For Kitchen Cabinets

If you are looking for harmony in your kitchen you should choose colours that are close to one another on the colour wheel; this will give you colours that work well and complement one another. The classic approach to painting a kitchen is to paint all your cabinets in one colour to provide a sense of harmony to the space.

These colour schemes are often inspired by nature. Think of settings such as a beach, desert or forest. With these in mind, harmonious schemes use a gentle, natural and often neutral colour palette.

Now, hopefully, you have a good idea of what cabinet colour you would like for your new kitchen. Why not send us your floor plans and we can begin designing your dream space?
