Blue Kitchen Cabinet Ideas

One of today’s hottest trends in kitchen design is the use blue cabinets. This is widely due to the versatility of the color as well as its ability to be dressed up or down depending upon the environment in which it is used. Blue is not only being used throughout an entire kitchen, but shades of blue are also being introduced as an accent color for kitchen islands. The huge range of blue tones available makes it easy to choose a hue that would complement other aspects of your kitchen. Whether you opt for navy blue, powder blue, royal or shades of blue and grey, there is the flexibility in finding the perfect hue for your own kitchen.

When choosing the perfect shade of blue for your cabinets, it’s important to note that the light quality, photo editing, and monitor settings can all affect the way a color looks, so be sure to test large samples in your kitchen before committing to a color!

This two-toned kitchen was designed by Gabriela Laboy, lead interior designer for Martha O’Hara Interiors in Minneapolis. After moving to a sprawling two-story in the suburbs, the clients found their spacious kitchen felt disconnected from the rest of the home as well as being much too traditional for their modern tastes.

To solve these problems, the designer removed two existing walls to help connect the nearby dining and living spaces and created a beautiful chef’s kitchen with a statement-making wall of built-in cabinets painted a bold navy blue. A sliding library ladder adds charm and function for hard-to-reach areas, while accents of warm brass and crisp white cabinets on the other side balance the room’s new personality. Gabriela says she designed this kitchen four years ago, but the style remains fresh — and people continue to ask for it. Despite the contrast, the blue acts like a neutral here, Gabriela says.

Instead of completely revamping the home, Whittney Parkinson blended the old and new. Fortunately, the homeowners also shared a passion for maintaining the original makeup of this home. And, because of the historical significance of this dwelling, they would have had to get approval from the local historical society before making any changes to the exterior, so there were no major adjustments done to the structure.

“The renovation of the home’s original kitchen was by far the most significant undertaking during this extensive project, as this space was nearly doubled in size, thanks to an existing breakfast nook that was used to expand the width of this room. As for the furnishings, the minimalist beige cabinetry was a direct nod to the utilitarian aesthetic of a European kitchen from the 1920s, says Parkinson.

Much like the design process of the bedroom, design inspiration for the kitchen stemmed from notable television series—in this case, Downton Abbey and Peaky Blinders. Some design elements that were considered, thanks to these shows, include exposed hinges, corbels, inset cabinetry, subway tiles, and an oversized beadboard.” ~ House Beautiful

This light blue and white kitchen designed by Michelle Gage, of Michelle Gage Interior Design, evokes a sense of calm with its soothing shades and pristine white gas range, a stylish departure from the stainless fridge and dishwasher. The balance of blue and stark white plays up the natural lighting and makes the space feel large and airy.

“When it comes to color, interior designer Michelle Gage practices what she preaches: Her and her husband’s bright blue kitchen is the first piece of proof—the fact that the space was nearly a deep green is the second. But choosing this particular hue—a process that, the pro admits, was “pretty tricky”—didn’t happen in a vacuum. “We had visited the English countryside a year or so before designing this space and fell in love with the powder blue kitchen in the house we stayed. We wanted to bring that vibe home with us,” she tells Martha Stewart Living.

“Selecting the cheerful hue was one thing—executing it in a way that felt balanced and fresh was another. She integrated sleek appliances and finishes, incorporating a gray marble to fend off color overload. The end result is one that will make you rethink your own neutral space.

Gage’s kitchen is colorful and calming—not overly-bright and overwhelming. Achieving this balance was a goal she set early on in the project. As for how she pulled it off? “We toned down the powerful color of the cabinets with simple finishes in the other selections. For example, the matte black Kohler fixtures kept the space shine-free (as opposed to metallic with a brass or nickel),” she explains. “The Caesarstone countertop was the perfect shade of gray (Georgia Bluffs); we strategically chose to continue that onto the backsplash for a fluid look. Adding another element—a tile for example—could have appeared cluttered, which wasn’t the vibe we wanted in here.”
