Choosing the Right Color
You already know you want dark kitchen cabinets. But what shade should it be brown? Most cabinet sellers will feature dozens, if not hundreds, of dark shades ranging from tan to ash grey to pitch black.
The first step is to find out what dark varieties your preferred cabinet vendor has. Chances are that they have dark extremes of each color. Decide what dark shade will work best for your kitchen. When most people think about dark kitchen cabinets, they automatically see the color black or grey. But you can get dark versions of any color, apart from white of course. You can choose to go with black, dark red, dark green, dark brown and so on.
If you are going for a super luxurious look, black and grey will work best. If you are looking for something to match brown flooring, dark brown or red cabinets might fit in perfectly. If you want a unique look, try unusual colors such as dark green. If you want a bit of the excitement of bright colors combined with the calm of dark shades, try dark yellow (the color of olives).
The most important thing is figuring out what will work well with other aspects of your kitchen and the final look you are aiming for. This is because, while all dark shades will have a similar calming and in-depth character, each dark shade also has its own unique impact on the look and feel of the kitchen. Mahogany colored cabinets (a dark shade of red) will feel quite different from Sangria cabinets (a deep shade of purple).
Compare, compare, and keep comparing until you find something that is perfect for your kitchen.
