February Design Corner

Interior stylist and founder of Refine & Design, Maria Bonaventura, says top choices for cabinet colors remain white and gray.

Kitchen Remodels

The kitchen remains the home’s command center and has stepped up to be the family room, office, classroom, and more. Whether you choose to do a simple yet powerful upgrade or a full-blown remodel, you will enjoy the benefits of a fresh new space.  

Homeowners are focusing on function and storage, upgraded cabinets (new or painted), countertops, sinks, faucets, appliances, tile backsplash to the ceiling, statement lighting, cabinet hardware, mixed metals, large windows for more natural light, custom vent hoods, and flooring (wood, luxury vinyl planks, or tile).

The top choices for cabinet colors remain white and gray. However, wood is enjoying a bit of a revival with medium wood tones of subtle-grained ash, paler than oak or walnut to add a rustic charm. Throw the rule book out of the window in favor of unexpected paint-color pairings. Many people choose a contrasting accent color for their kitchen island, upper cabinets, and lower cabinets. Blue or green paired with white are the top color choices for this combo. One of our favorites is Sherwin Williams Dried Thyme and Pure White.
