Over the last few months, I have had so many questions from readers about cabinet paint color trends and how to choose an updated cabinetry color that will be timeless. I completely get it! We want to choose a beautiful updated color but a color that we’ll still love years later (after the trends move on to new colors).

It’s so interesting to me because with so many questions from you guys over the last few months, I know a lot of you are in the process of renovating kitchens and bathrooms, or in the planning stages of renovating. I’m excited for you guys but I know how hard it is to choose just the right colors. So many of you are agonizing over choosing just the right color and it doesn’t have to be that way.

The truth is, while I talk a lot about paint color trends here on the blog, I never choose, or recommend colors solely based on what’s trending. Instead, I compromise by choosing an updated color but a muted version of the trendy bold, greige vs. gray or a transitional version of a trendier color. This compromise is where updated timeless colors are discovered, that we’ll love for years to come. Especially when it comes to cabinetry colors.

If you’re interested in more details and specifics of how to compromise and instantly zone in on these timeless colors, I break it all down in my latest article over on Better Homes and Gardens here. I also talk about the biggest color trends in cabinetry colors as well and where we’re heading into 2017.
There was so much more I wanted to include in my BHG article (I’m a little passionate about this) but of course, I am limited on space and the number of images that can fit into the article. What we didn’t have room for in my article was some additional color picks that I pulled together. I wanted to be sure and include them here for you to see after you read the article.

I hope my BHG article helps you guys better zone in on the perfect cabinet paint color for your space. My best advice is to choose a color that you will love for years to come but be sure and test it first in the space with the lighting. You can do this by painting the sample color on poster board and taping it to your cabinets. Look at the sample in the morning, noon and evening to make sure it will work in all your lighting conditions.
If you want to see more cabinet paint colors in action, as you narrow down your choices, I have multiple boards over on Pinterest here dedicated to paint colors in general and a board dedicated to all cabinetry colors with hundreds of great examples.
Thanks for stopping by today and again, you can find my latest BHG cabinet article here and you can look through all my past BHG articles here. By the way, after you do paint, I would love for you to come back and tell me what you went with and any feedback you have on the color. 🙂
