Repainting a room can be a great way to bring new life to the space. And what better space to rejuvenate than your kitchen?

If you’re anything like us, you spend a lot of time there, and it should be someplace you enjoy being.

One of the easiest ways to freshen up your kitchen is to repaint your cabinets. Keep in mind you will still want it fit with your overall home color palette. But you can achieve a variety of looks painting your kitchen cabinets, both understated and bold.

Below we’ve compiled a list of the best kitchen cabinet paint colors for 2019.

Blue kitchen cabinets
A deep blue can add color while still being reserved


If you’re looking for a way to make your kitchen cabinets pop but still stay reserved and classy, blue is your best bet.

We’ve seen some gorgeous pictures in recent years of cabinets painted deep ocean or navy blues.

Or, if you’re feeling lighter, try a robin’s egg blue for a fun, airy look. Don’t be afraid to experiment with colors between your base cabinets and upper cabinets, or try some other popular kitchen design trends.

White kitchen cabinets


It’s hard to beat the classics, and when it comes to kitchen cabinets, white is as classic as it gets.

White makes everything look clean and airy and can help open up small spaces. Dark kitchens with poor lighting can also benefit from white kitchen cabinets.

White is a completely neutral color, so you don’t have to worry about colors clashing. This makes it the top choice when prepping a house for sale or rent. You may want to consider getting a slightly off-white color to avoid a snow-blind effect in your kitchen. Or go with our next choice… cream.

Cream kitchen cabinets


If you have an older house, painting your cabinets cream can be absolutely lovely.

Cream is softer than bright white and feels more traditional while still remaining light and open. Walking into your kitchen will feel like entering a museum or a model home.

Cream is also a good kitchen cabinet color when trying to match different design elements, such as tile backsplashes or flooring. Try to stay neutral and avoid getting a hue that has too much yellow or red tone to it.

Green farmhouse kitchen cabines


If you think painting your kitchen cabinets green is a crazy idea born of the seventies, hold your horses.

Green stands alongside blue as one of those colors that can add a rich color to your kitchen without being overwhelming. Look for something in earth tones; lower saturation will keep things from becoming too much.

Careful with the brightness. Bright greens can be a little overwhelming to some. Muted and pastel greens might be a better choice here, such as avocado or mint colors.

The colors of your kitchen walls will be very important if you go with green, and it can be very easy to end up with clashing colors. Try to stick with a neutral wall color, or with something like dark charcoal for a nice contrast.

Red modern kitchen cabinets


If you really want to go bold with your cabinets, you can paint them a daring, fire-engine red or a deeper crimson.

Unlike green and blue, this warm color can get overwhelming in a small space. So either use this in a large, open kitchen, or expect your kitchen to be a smack-you-in-the-face kind of room.

Red is another bold color that also lends itself to more effect in small doses. Try a dark red on a kitchen island, and something more understated and complementary for the rest of the cabinets. Again, don’t be afraid to experiment with the kitchen cabinet colors.

Black kitchen cabinets


If you want to go for a more sophisticated, minimalistic look, black can be gorgeous. Dark grays and charcoals can also give you a bold but classy look.

It pairs beautifully with white marble counters – or any counters, really. Plus, it won’t show dirt and smudges as easily as the lighter colors will. Black works especially well in kitchen with lots of natural light. Other contrasting finishes help accentuate the black cabinets. Countertops, backsplashes, walls and floors all should be taken into consideration.
