When creating, remodelling or redesigning a kitchen, the colour scheme is one aspect that needs to be given careful consideration. Colour is present in every element of a kitchen, from the flooring to the countertops and the cupboard doors, so selecting painted kitchen cupboard doors that not only complement each of the other aspects of the kitchen but accentuate them, should be something that is carefully considered.
Throughout 2021 and 2022, we are seeing that trends in both traditional, modern and contemporary kitchens seem to be shifting away from cooler colour schemes, with warmer, earthier tones being more popular for painted kitchen cupboard doors.
Trending Painted Kitchen Cupboard Door Colours
So, let’s take a look at the top 5 trending colours of painted kitchen cupboard doors in 2022!:
Clean, crisp, and forgiving. It is little surprise that many people still opt for the classic white painted kitchen cupboard doors. A timeless classic that lends itself to a variety of kitchen styles, from contemporary to traditional, they brighten up any kitchen, and when paired with the correct countertops and handles, white kitchen cabinets not only brighten up the space, and look stunning, they are also a great choice for those looking to ensure a good resale value.
Natural, earthy tones are certainly another popular choice in 2022. And green is certainly looking to be one of the most in-demand colours for kitchen cabinet doors. Depending on the shade that is opted for, green lends itself well to a variety of styles, opt for a deep, forest green, coupled with natural oak or walnut wooden elements to create a more traditional feel.
Another seemingly ever-popular choice for painted kitchen cupboard cabinets is grey. Although we are still seeing matt grey as a popular choice, darker greys, and “greige,” which combines grey with beige elements, are becoming more and more sought after. Whether a grey accent is included when designing a white kitchen, or a more earthy design is coupled with grey cabinets, grey is in, and it really makes a space feel both stylish and modern.
Whether a light, powdery blue is the predominant colour, or a more vibrant tone, matt or gloss blue is used as an accent colour on a few cabinet doors or a kitchen island. Blue is another colour that we fully expect to be in high demand over the course of the next few months, and even into next year. It works exceptionally well in matt and high gloss kitchens alike.
Pink has been a popular choice for what seems like years now, and it’s certainly not going anywhere. In fact, if anything it’s becoming even more popular! Whether its a muted, subtle pastel pink or a bold, high gloss finish on pink cabinets, this versatile hue is fast becoming one of the hottest, “on-trend” colours in the kitchen industry,

Other Factors to consider when choosing painted kitchen cupboards?
There are of course some other factors that should be considered when decorating your kitchen, and these are applicable to a whole house, not just the colour of painted kitchen cupboard doors.
When to be more reserved…?
If the home you are installing or remodelling a kitchen in is not your client’s forever home, you might find that they opt for a more neutral colour palette. If they ever plan on moving, they will probably have half an eye on resale and attracting potential future buyers. So, it makes sense for them to opt for a more classic colour scheme, such as white painted kitchen cupboards, or other neutral colours.
When to make a kitchen that is a little more individual…?
If the house is a client’s forever home, then they can really get creative and individual when it comes to their painted kitchen cupboard doors and the colour scheme as a whole. The chances are, that they will be spending a lot of time in the kitchen, so they will be able to create a unique space that reflects them, and their style!
