Whites, grays and taupe tones fall into this category and they are all highly versatile. Varying shades range from warm off-white, to cream and buff, and light to medium grey hues. Neutral paint colors work well with most design styles. They also are safer color choices because they easily complement and blend with other kitchen features such as flooring, countertops, backsplashes, and decorative accents.
Deeper cabinet paint colors have been a popular trend. Shades like navy, dark gray, deep brown and black have surged in popularity and work best paired with white or neutral walls for contrast. When using a deeper hue, choose a color with a balanced mix of warm and cool undertones, which will help in complementing surrounding colors throughout the kitchen.
