Utilitarian, multi-purpose and visually pleasing, these adjectives work for these charming and colorful kitchen cabinets.

Proper selection of colors, textures and finishes is the key to maintaining soothing color palette in the kitchen while enhancing its storage capacity.


Here are some of the best colors that are being used by kitchen manufacturers in 2020 in both built-in kitchens and modular kitchens. Each kitchen cabinet features here showcases the beauty of different colors in varied kitchens like U-shaped, L-shaped, elongated and square models that will provide excellent solutions to beautify your kitchen in similar manner.

A new trend that is gaining popularity is the pleasant combination of natural wood with painted cabinets. While in the past people used to paint their wooden kitchen cabinets in different shades for top and bottom something similar is being done now also with a twist. Besides giving pleasing complementary hues to top and bottom cabinets made of wood, now they are also given just a light dab of paint.

4. Magic of burgundy

Using intense colors is also an upcoming trend in 2020 like peacock blue, bright yellow, parrot green and the deep wine burgundy like here. This year with life around the world undergoing tumultuous changes there is no limitation to colors that can be used to brighten up the kitchen. Ideally bright tones should be tempered with light colors like white here to create soothing aura.

5. Warmth of wood

Wood has been the standard material for kitchen cabinets but rising prices have forced people to use alternatives like MDF board, plywood and other options. Here the warmth of wood enhances the charm of country style kitchen as the wood polish allows wood-grains to add texture and depth.

6. Soothing Teal Blue

While white is pleasing to the eye too much of it can blur details in small spaces like this tiny kitchen. Architecture of this pretty kitchen has been highlighted by use of lovely teal blue on certain sections of the cabinets along with white to define the storage area.

7. Soft Beige

Beige is another color that can be used if you want to have a minimalist kitchen without making it all white. The kitchen here is ringed with neutral beige cabinets while the walls are a tinge of creamy white and the floor is warm brown. Black granite counter-top, wide windows and soft toned back-splash helps to make wholesome cooking environment.

8. Combination of two elements

The owner wanted something unique for storage so two elements were used to create a startling combination. Warm brown wooden tones were implemented for below counter storage while transparent glass fronted cabinets were used for top storage. The unique combination makes the kitchen look harmonious while the sparkling white counter keeps the place neatly tied up.

9. Muted lemon
