Modern Cabinet Painting Ideas
Interior paint ideas are a little different than those for cabinets. Cabinets are considered a focal point and therefore deserve a little more attention. Take a look at this post for common mistakes to avoid when painting kitchen cabinets.
Otherwise, let’s take a look at what’s trending with cabinet paint colors so you can get the ideas you need.
Two Tone Cabinets
Two-tone cabinets are IN this year. It’s a great way to add some character to your space and use more than one of your favorite tones. This also allows for more decorating options. We typically see gray or blue on the lowers with a shade of white on the uppers.
If you’re into this project for the full effect, you can also consider adding accent colors to your palette. Think colorful handles and knobs, and accent painted edging.
Colors for Your Personality
The best interior paint colors for your home should always be based on your personality. The kitchen and bathroom are the perfect spaces to make a profound statement with painted cabinets. Here’s what’s popular for every attitude.

Pastels often represent spiritualism and healing energy. Look for color palettes that showcase muted pastels blended with dark blues and greens. Yellow hues are also popular and bode well for gender-neutral rooms.
Mist is a trending color this year for its blend of a muted pastel blue and gray-green hue with a lilac undertone. This color trend is a blank canvas for decor of all colors and styles.
If you’ve been a lot of different places around the world, you probably want to bring some of the colors you’ve seen into your own home. And why not start with the cabinets?
Colors on the World Travelers palette range from whites to caramelized creams and browns, with a splash of blue.
This color evokes a sense of zest and wanderlust for people with an earthy spirit. You can choose from terra cotta to clove and burnt orange to caramel. These colors are sure to elevate a room and your mood with ease.
Hazelnut is a warm and inviting, creamy shade that sets the tone for the rest of the room. It will never go out of style or clash with your countertops and furnishings.
Pewter is one of the perfect interior paint colors as an alternative to white. Decorators and designers recommend using Pewter in more than one room in your home.
For the more traditional person that likes to keep things relaxed and appealing, chilled color palettes are the best way to go. Look for colors like Merlot and Charcoal Blue or Wheat. These are a couple of favorites for this year:
Dark green was a popular shade for interiors in the 1990s and it’s making a comeback. Beware, however, this is not a shade you want to use in small spaces.
Another ‘comeback color’ from the popular 1970s era are mousy browns and light rust colors. Mushrooms also come to mind. This is another gender-neutral hue that fits well in any design.
For the enthusiast who’s passionate and energetic, there are plenty of bold and vivid colors to choose from this year. Go ahead, embrace your inner funk and get a little loud.
When you think of colors that ‘pop’ you probably think of bright reds and maybe greens. Look for hues that mimic traditional wood for cabinets that will stand out with a subtle pop.
As an alternative to gold or yellow, consider a mixed hue of mustard. It’s absolutely brilliant in a kitchen.
If you prefer to keep the project simple and want to approach the project with a neutral range of colors, that’s okay, too. Think of colors like felted wool or deep beige and light rose colors.
Lilac-gray is a classic paint color that complements any room or design. It can make other hues appear warmer and refresh an apparently drab space with a deep, yet cool undertone.
Mixing Old and New
Generally, colors considered to represent old or ancient times have hues in the rustic red, taupe, and maybe white porcelain range. But, blue never goes out of style.
For a traditional, yet casual approach to interior design with your cabinetry, consider shades of charcoal blue, ice-blue, and gray-blue. Powder blue will even do if you prefer this lighter look.
Your cabinet painting project is waiting. Now that you know all of the trends for this year, you can get on board and start making your own plans. Just think, it will be like having a new kitchen or bathroom once the job is complete.
