Why Blue Cabinets Are a Must for Your Kitchen

The most important thing when deliberating over what colour to use in the kitchen units is to ensure it’s a hue that you love and can live with for years to come. In this regard, blue is the most popular colour on the spectrum internationally, as shown by the now-famous study done in 2003 by Joe Hallock from the University of Washington. So, why not to use it for decorating your kitchen?

Some may find it strange or even hard to combine to use blue cabinets. But, in the right way, they can go well with practically any interior design – from traditional to modern, passing all styles in between. And to prove it, we bring you a selection of blue cabinets ideas that bring life into your home.

Rustic Blue Kitchen Island

A rustic style kitchen is an excellent option to add warmth and charm to your home, whether you live in the countryside or the city centre. It provides a calming atmosphere that will help you to relax and calm your mind as if you were in the middle of nature.

Usually, in this kind of design style, there’s a tendency to go towards white and wood tones. However, it may be interesting to explore with other colours – blue, for example -, adding a touch of interest to certain elements such as the kitchen island, as you can see in the picture below.

White and Blue Kitchen Cabinet

White and blue is always a winner combo that never goes out of style. This classic pairing enhances the qualities of light in space and takes us automatically to the coasts of Greece, to its sea breeze and its white-and-blue buildings. It is, therefore, the perfect choice for both sea lovers and travel enthusiasts.

Combine them with stainless steel finishes and hydraulic tiles in earthy tones to get an incredible result.

Dark Blue Kitchen Cabinets

If what you want is to have a sophisticated and fancy design for the kitchen, you should consider the option of using dark blue kitchen cabinets. Moreover, they combine perfectly with subway tile backsplashes and feel very refined paired with marble counters, as you can see in this picture.

Traditional Blue Kitchen Furniture

If your style is rather classic and you don’t feel like opting for something ultra-daring, one of your best options would be to use the same colour range for both cabinet doors and kitchen backsplash. In this regard, blue can give a sense of welcoming and warmth to your kitchen design without leaving aside its traditional aesthetics and timeless elegance.
