Blue may seem like an unusual choice for the kitchen but wait till you see our design ideas for modern blue kitchen cabinets.
Blue is the most popular colour among homeowners owing to its versatility and ability to make any space brighter by reflecting natural light. Be it a bedroom, living room, balcony or home exterior – you will find some shade of blue in most homes. But what about kitchen cabinets? Yes, blue is an uncommon colour for kitchen cabinets. Conventionally, brown, black, white and organic greens are used for kitchen cabinets. But homeowners nowadays don’t shy away from experimenting.
But, why blue, you ask? Why not? Blue is one of the most perennial colours and adds a sense of sophistication and tranquillity to your space. It reflects the limitless sky and depth of the ocean. When other trendy colours lose their sheen, blue never becomes tiring. Hence, if you want something that will make your home stand apart, try modern blue kitchen cabinets.
Here are some great ways you can feature modern blue cabinets in your kitchen.
Modern Navy Blue Kitchen Cabinets In Combination With White
Many people would argue that a dark shade of navy blue could make your kitchen space look smaller than it really is. But if it is used strategically, navy blue can do wonders. For instance, in the kitchen shown below, the bottom cabinets are in navy blue, while the top ones are white. To create the illusion of a wider space, pale blue and white chequered tiles have been used as a backsplash. Also, to break the monotony, we have used open pull-out drawers with jute baskets and glass cabinets.
Livid Blue Kitchen Cabinets For Those Who Are Fearless About Experimenting
Modern blue-grey kitchen cabinets go really well with quartz or marble countertops. The greyish shade gives the appearance of a wider space. Meanwhile, the kitchen looks clean, wide and airy with white top cabinets, walls and backsplash. Now, cooking won’t seem like a chore anymore.
Adopt Maximalism With Modern Blue Kitchen Cabinets
If bold colours are your jam, don’t be afraid to go all out with sky-blue cabinets. The muted grey walls, wooden floors, mid-century style wooden dining set, and woven pendant light highlight the bold blue colour of the cabinets and add softness to the vibe.
Pair Modern Dark Blue Kitchen Cabinets With White Textured Tiles
Midnight blue and white is the most evergreen colour combination. But this evergreen combination can also seem bland without a hint of something extra. Hence, we have used white textured tiles on the backsplash that creates an illusion of depth. We have also used golden handles to elevate the style quotient.
Vibrant Kitchenette With Aqua Blue And Yellow Kitchen Cabinets
If you live in a studio apartment, you might have limited space to add colours, especially if you live in a rented home. Since you may not have permission to make permanent changes to the home, you can go for kitchen cabinets in vibrant colours. Here, in this small kitchenette, we have used aqua blue on the bottom drawers and mustard yellow on the top cabinets. You can also add colour with water-proof wallpaper like the vibrant multi-colour one we have used.
