Cabinets occupy substantial space in the kitchen and hence, impact the overall look and feel.  Using the right mix of colours is essential to bring out the beauty and character of the kitchen’s interiors. In this context, one of the most popular colours gaining the attention of interior designers and homeowners these days is blue.

The colour blue brings a comfortable, tranquil and happy vibe with it which makes it the ideal choice for your kitchen cabinets. It is a versatile colour as it is available in multiple shades — peacock blue, moody blue, azure blue, royal blue, denim blue and many more — all of which have an impact on your mood and behaviour.

For example, dark blue kitchen cabinets designs can be associated with intelligence and power while light blue kitchen cabinets can induce creativity and playfulness in experimenting with new dishes. This presents a perfect opportunity to bring out the hidden Masterchef in you, eh!

Blue symbolises purity, spirituality and expansiveness, and is also believed to keep your blood pressure and heart rate in check. With many options of blue available in the market, we’re sure you’ll be spoilt for choice but equally lost during the final purchase/designing of your kitchen cabinets. But don’t worry, that’s what we’re here for.

Just follow a few tips to pick the right shade of blue kitchen cabinets for your home.

  • Choose a shade of blue that matches your style and overall decor preference. If you want a traditional look, pair it with white or grey whereas if you want a modern look, pair it with brighter tones like yellow and light green
  • Use medium and darker shades of blue for large kitchens (as they induce warmth), and use lighter shades of blue for small kitchens (as they make the space feel larger and neater)
  • Don’t use too much blue in the kitchen (or any other space) as it might make you feel overwhelmed and overpowered 
  • Factor in the colour of your kitchen walls to help you decide on the perfect shade of blue. Pair it with lighter shades in the colour wheel such as yellow, white, grey and cream to bring stability in the kitchen. Check out two-colour combinations for your kitchen cabinets here
