If you’re in the process of designing your kitchen, choosing the right color for your cabinets is crucial. With so many options available, it can be difficult to know where to start. That’s where Holcomb Cabinetry comes in. Our team can help you decide whether light or dark cabinets would be best for your space.

Choosing the Right Color For Your Space

When it comes to cabinetry, the color you choose can make a big difference in the style and tone of your space. Light colors, like the Moonshine paint from Kraftmaid used in our recent kitchen project in Newark, DE, can create an airy, open feeling in your kitchen.

The shaker style of these cabinets gives them a classic and timeless look, while the light grey color adds a modern touch. The photo from this project shows just how much of a difference a coat of paint can make in transforming the space.

On the other hand, dark colors, like the Peppercorn paint from Fieldstone used in our recent kitchen project in Hockessin, DE, can create a more dramatic and sophisticated atmosphere. Even with both kitchens featuring a white quartz countertop, the dark grey color of the cabinets in this project adds a sense of depth and richness to the space.

Again, this project’s before and after photos demonstrate just how much of a statement a darker color can make.

What Sets Shaker-style Cabinets Apart?

The kitchens in the projects above feature shaker-style cabinets. Originating in the late 18th century, shaker furniture and design is known for its simplicity, functionality, and attention to detail; they are typically made from high-quality wood such as cherry, maple, or oak, and feature dovetail joints for durability.

One of the unique aspects of shaker-style cabinets is their versatility. They can be adapted to suit a variety of design aesthetics, from traditional to modern. Additionally, their minimalist design allows them to pair well with a wide range of countertop materials, backsplashes, and hardware.

Whether you choose a classic white, a warm cream, a bold navy, or a calming gray, shaker-style cabinets are sure to make a statement in your kitchen.
