What is the Most Popular Color for Kitchen Cabinets

Your favorite color of kitchen cabinets is of course going to vary from person to person. Even though the choice of kitchen cabinet color is personal there is still a color that seems to be the most popular color, and that is…..white! There is a reason white is one of the most popular paint colors for kitchen cabinets, it can go with anything! Below I will share some of the most popular white cabinet paint colors.

Best Shades of White for Painting Cabinets

Benjamin Moore White Dove – White Dove has been a popular white paint color for a couple years now and its popularity continues to soar! Not only is White Dove a great color to use for walls and trim, but it is a very popular go-to for white cabinets.

Sherwin Williams Alabaster – if you are looking for a white that is a little warmer than White Dove, Alabaster might be it. This has been another popular white paint color due to its warm undertones and doesn’t come off as bright stark white.

Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffeeanother really great warm white is Swiss Coffee. Definitely more cream colored than Alabaster, but still stunning as showing by the photo by Studio McGee below!

Benjamin Moore Simply White – getting back to our brighter whites, Simply White is pretty much exactly what it says, simply white! White is just such a classic and timeless color for cabinets and this one sure doesn’t disappoint. I love the look with wood accents.

Sherwin Williams Repose Gray – this is probably my favorite color of gray for cabinets. Depending on the surroundings this gray will either come off warm with a brownish gray tint, or come off true light gray. Either way Repose Gray is usually a safe bet.

Benjamin Moore Coventry Gray – getting more towards the true gray color, we come across Coventry Gray. This is another really popular true gray option that I have seen done very well in a lot of homes and brings in a lot of warmth.

Most Popular Greige Cabinet Paint Colors

Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray – just like the name states, Agreeable Gray is named for that reason….it pretty much agrees with the surroundings to bring a beautiful warmth to your space. I love how it brought color and warmth to this laundry room.

Sherwin Williams Mindful Gray – the last of our most popular greige cabinet paint colors is Mindful Gray. I used this color on my previous kitchen and loved it! One tip I will say is not to pair it with light true gray walls, it will make the wall color come off blue.

Best Shades of Navy for Cabinets

Benjamin Moore Hale Navy – the only navy color I have ever tried is Hale Navy and I absolutely loved it. It has been a popular paint color for years on walls and trim, but has really stepped up to the game in the cabinet department and trust me, doesn’t disappoint!
