Are Painted Cabinets Out of Style?


March 14, 2024

I gave my newsletter subscribers a chance to ask any design question they wanted of me. One of the questions that came back was, “Are painted cabinets going out of style?” This subscriber says she has dark cabinets and dark floors.

If you keep up with Instagram or Pinterest you see an ever rising push towards wood cabinetry. Most are light to medium shades of brown. The over all aesthetic is neutral, clean, cozy and inviting. Our Mountain Project, finishing up early Summer, encompases this style beautifully.

I have clients building new homes and renovating homes who are choosing to go with painted cabinets. I for one think painted cabinets are forever in style. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite kitchens with painted cabinets.

Grab a cup of coffee (or your favorite sip) and scroll with me as we appreciate these lovely kitchens.

These gray cabinets get me every single time. They pair so well with a light subway tile, white quartz countertops and warm stained maple floors.

How pretty is the mix of white walls and cream cabinetry?! A lot of people are leary of mixing white and cream. I think it is done so well here. How about you?

Add color to an otherwise white kitchen by painting the island and finishing out the range hood in a warm textured material.

A few years ago my sister had the opportunity to renovate her kitchen. I remember the day she called and said she was thinking about going with blue cabinets. She has always loved blue and this kitchen is stunning. Everytime I walk into this kitchen I am so proud of her vision brought to life!

I love the balance of warm floors, cool tone marble and cabinets painted White Duck by Sherwin Williams. Dishes and prep would for sure be easier in front of those stunning windows.

Wrapping it up a pop of color in this space designed by Joanna Gaines. The balance of light and dark is crucial when pulling off spaces like this. Large window and light countertops are a perfect compliment in this space.
