Design Trends: Colorful Cabinetry and Tile

By Kali |

We're big fans of adding color to the kitchen. Whether that splash of color is with tile or your cabinetry (or both) is up to you! Today, we're sharing three of our favorite ways to pair tile with colorful cabinetry, but check out our Pinterest Board for even more design inspiration. 

True Blue: 
What's more timeless than blue? Whatever the shade, blue cabinetry fits the bill for nearly any style kitchen. 

Darker blue cabinetry anchors this bright, light-filled kitchen:

We love the way the cabinetry in the kitchen below plays off the intricate handpainted backsplash:

A cornflower blue perfectly complements a neutral colored tile, whether it's on the cooler or warmer side:

Go Green: 
We're all about bringing the outdoors into interior spaces and a pop of green is the perfect way to do just that.  

Darker greens, like a classic hunter, pair beautifully with rustic finishes and bright white tile:

These muted green cabinets paired with a bright white tile are traditional-meets-modern at its finest:

There is nothing wrong with having your cabinets be a lighter shade than your tile. We love how the sage-green hue of the cabinets below play off the blue tiles:

The blue-green cabinets in Jen Pinkston's kitchen create a refreshing, soothing vibe that we can all appreciate:

Brighten it up:
Willing to go bold? An unexpected pop of color in your kitchen can take your space to the next level.

A bit of playfulness can go a long way in the space we spend so much of our time in, which is why we love these lavender cabinets paired with our Chaine Homme tiles:

If you're going for white tile, brighter colored cabinetry can anchor your space and provide a contrasting element. An infusion of color like the bright blue cabinets below can be just the wake-up call you need alongside your morning coffee:

Don't forget about warm tones! From more pastel pinks to bright reds, you're allowed to have some fun with your kitchen cabinets.

The Darker Side: 
Moody interiors are definitely on trend right now and you're kitchen cabinets are a great way to accomplish this look. If you're afraid of your space becoming too dark, yu can offset a darker cabinetry color with brighter tile. 

It doesn't get more timeless than a black and white kitchen and we especially love the one below. Dark cabinetry creates a bit of drama, while the white brick and open shelving keep things light:

You can also go tonal and have your tile and cabinetry match. A glazed Brick backsplash in Front Range strikes just the right tone in this contrasting open kitchen.

If you're worried about a darker cabinet color darkening your space, you can always opt for the best of both worlds and go for light and dark. We suggest keeping the darker color for the lowers and a lighter for the uppers for the best effect:
