Kitchen cabinets in white, grey, and wood colors are all too standard, but what about blue? What effect does it have on a kitchen? In general, blue kitchen cabinets will make your kitchen more calming, creating a grounded, welcoming feeling. But how it shapes, your kitchen largely depends on the shade you use.

Blue Kitchen Cabinets Shades Type
Light blue shades of kitchen cabinets work well if you want a bright kitchen. Light blue kitchen cabinets reflect light better than darker shades, making the kitchen feel more vibrant and more prominent. If you have a small kitchen that you want to feel a little larger and possibly less claustrophobic, a lighter shade of blue kitchen cabinet may be the best choice for you. Light blue kitchen cabinets can go a long way in creating an inviting kitchen that can boost your mood first thing in the morning. The effect of brightening the room works best if you have natural light in your kitchen; otherwise, there isn’t much for it to reflect. Be sure to pair your light blue kitchen cabinets with other lighter-colored surfaces because if you don’t, you’ll lose the effect when darker surfaces absorb the light that is bouncing around.
Like light blues, natural blues can also help lighten up a room. Neutral blues have the advantage of seamlessly blending all the colors in your kitchen together, so no part of your kitchen stands out; it appears to be one cohesive unit.
Dark blues, while also creating an inviting kitchen, do so differently from lighter shades. The darker shades ground the kitchen, making it feel homier. Blue naturally makes a room feel more peaceful and serene because it reminds people of looking at the sky or the ocean. If you have a larger kitchen, darker shades of blue cabinets can help “slim down” your kitchen. The dark color will make it feel a little smaller and more inviting. Dark blue kitchen cabinets, such as our Aria Blue Cabinets, can also become the centerpiece of a kitchen, providing a pop of color against lighter colors that liven up your kitchen and give it some personality. Your cabinets are often the first thing people notice in your kitchen, so having cabinets that pop will make your kitchen more enjoyable than using mellow colors and shades that blend.
