Image result for Kitchen Cabinets: Choosing the Perfect Color

White- white is generally the most popular choice of colour for areas that are going to be mainly covered in white, black, and grey.Cupboards that are customised in white usually match modern homes and complement elegant looks. Because of the versatile nature, these cabinets can be expected to last for several years irrespective hoe many times the house is remodelled or the owner changes the style of it.

While these are the most obvious pros, cons include the easiness with which this colour is prone to getting dirty. Especially in family houses, with the presence of little children, homeowners may have to spend a large part of their time scrubbing marks off of doors and drawers, especially if they are extremely easy to reach. This colour also shows dirt, scratches, and dents more easily and prominently than other colours.

Black- customised black cabinets make the home look sleep and elegant. This colour is also not quick to show smudges, fingerprints, or dirt and can therefore be cleaned at the leisure of the owner. The biggest disadvantage of using this colour is how easily it shows scratches. Additionally, it is also not very versatile and may not suit different styles. While it will complement more modern themes, it may not go very well with a traditional one.

Grey- while grey may not be the first colour that comes to your mind when designing a cabinet, its uniqueness is what makes it popular. This colour tends to balance out the pros and cons that are seen when using black or white. While it will not show dirt as easily as white, it won’t hide it as well as black. Similarly, while it will not show scratches as easily as black does, it will not hide them in the same way that white does.

Wood- there are a variety of colours to choose from when it comes to wood kitchen cabinets. Basic colours like black, white, and grey are usually some of the most common colours seen on wood. Something to bear in mind is that darker shades of wood will show less dirt but more scratches easily whereas lighter shades of wood may show dirt easily but are more versatile and can be paired with several remodels over the years.

Something else to consider when choosing wood to make cabinets is the durability. Harder woods are usually preferred because they are considered to last longer.

Designing cabinets for a kitchen is a great way to personalise your home. A simple internet search will show you any number of cabinet makers who will be able to offer you a wide selection of colours, styles as well as materials to make your cabinets with. You may even be able to ask for pictures that will give you an idea of what the final product will look like. Make sure to go to a reputed person or company and get prices quoted so you have an idea of what your budget should be and what you can get with it. Lastly, check to see if the products you are buying are covered by a warranty.
