Trending Colors for Kitchen Cabinets in 2024

Updated kitchen with wooden floors and cabinets.

The kitchen is the heart of your home, so naturally, you want it to feel like a reflection of you and a place where you and your family will want to spend time. The color of your kitchen cabinets and islands can set the tone for how the space feels. With that pressure, choosing the right colors can feel overwhelming. 

That’s where Willet Construction comes in. We’re here to share the latest trends and designs in kitchen cabinet colors for 2024, and the top trend this year is paint!

Painting your kitchen cabinets allows for a broader range of color choices and customization than sticking with natural wood tones. Painting also allows you to easily update the kitchen’s look over time without requiring extensive renovations. 

Explore these 2024 paint color trends for kitchen cabinets:


Cool Blues and Greens

Cool, moody blues and greens like navy, slate, and forest green are making a big statement in kitchen design this year. These hues bring a sense of tranquility and sophistication to your kitchen, creating a serene atmosphere perfect for both cooking and entertaining. Whether used as accents or for entire cabinets, these colors add depth and modern touch to any kitchen space.


Warm Earth Tones

Earthy tones such as clay, terracotta, and warm neutrals are also gaining popularity. These colors evoke a cozy, inviting feeling, making your kitchen a welcoming hub for family and friends. By incorporating earth tones into your cabinetry, you can achieve a harmonious blend with natural elements and create a comforting environment that blends with various accent colors.


Pops of Color

For those who love a bit of personality in their kitchen, consider adding pops of vibrant colors to your cabinets. Bold shades like deep reds, sunny yellows, or rich jewel tones can instantly liven up the room while maintaining an elegant balance. You can strategically place these accents to create focal points that showcase your unique style and taste.


Two-Toned Kitchens

Two-toned cabinets are a favorite choice for homeowners looking to add dimension and visual interest to their kitchens. You can create contrast and customization that suits your design preferences by combining different colors or finishes. This option enhances your kitchen aesthetics and allows for practicality. For example, you can use lighter colors on upper cabinets to brighten the space and darker shades on lower cabinets to ground the room.
