Blue kitchen cabinets don’t just look fabulous, they are a practical choice that will stand the test of time. Blue colors in kitchens can add a well needed lift without being garish or loud.
In some of the performance kitchens we have designed on the Main Line and throughout the Philadelphia metro, various shades of blue have become the color choice for cabinetry. There are hundreds of beautiful shades of blue to choose from and one of them is sure to be a great fit for the kind of kitchen ambiance you want to create.
If the look you want is bright and breezy then some of the lighter shades of blue can be good choices. This is because they can enhance the feeling of spaciousness and light. In contrast, darker shades of blue can be used to create a comfortable and warm look.
Navy and associated blues are eternal colors that kitchen designers have been incorporating into kitchens for decades and, using them as a cabinet color will ensure that your kitchen cabinets stay fresh and relevant for years to come.
Furthermore, shades of blue will work with a wide variety of cabinet styles, so you won’t have to be concerned with selecting a special color just to match whatever type of cabinetry you’ve selected.
Navy themes allow formal blue kitchen cabinets take on a classy, high-end look. In rustic or farmhouse style kitchens, blue kitchen cabinets can add a comforting, low-key feel to the kitchen.
In general, blue is a color that is known for imparting soothing feelings to the environments it is used in. Designers often recommended blue for spaces that are meant to relieve stress, and many people see it as a very traditional color. In terms of color theory, it is known that that blue brings about tranquil, calming feelings, and kitchen designers often use it not only to create these moods, but to give spaces a luxurious, high-end feeling.
