When choosing a color for the kitchen cabinets in your Seattle home, there is more to the process than simply picking a shade. You need to take several factors and your kitchen design into consideration, and consult with your remodeling designer through every step of the process.
Consider your overhead lighting.
You should never make a rash decision, especially when it comes to your kitchen design and remodel. You are spending a lot of money on new cabinets, countertops, and flooring, so you want to be sure all of these components will look good once they are installed. Often, kitchen cabinets may look different in the showroom or on the factory floor. The overhead lighting for these areas is typically very different from the lighting found in a residential kitchen. Ask if you can bring home a sample of the cabinet that interests you most. You can see how it will look under your kitchen lights and be sure it will look beautiful once installed.
Complement your countertops.
On top of your overhead lighting, you need to make sure your new cabinets will compliment your kitchen countertops. Again, ask your remodeling company for a sample of your cabinet color. You can hold it next to your countertops to decide if the colors pair well with each other. If you are completely remodeling your kitchen, then speak with your kitchen designer from the beginning to create a color pallet for the project.
Think about the cabinet material.
Most likely, the cabinet material will be wood, but you may find a chrome finish, glass, or wood composite material, as well. All of these options typically include various colors, finishes, stains, and other ways to alter their look. Before installing your new kitchen cabinets, consider how your desired color will look on the material you choose.
