The Best Kitchen Paint Colors in 2020

We have a new kitchen renovation in the IDCO family beginning this week and cabinet color trends are on the brain. This includes every single last shade of green plus a few unexpected palettes as well. Think moody tone on tone colors and warm, earthy shades. There was a time not too long ago when all white kitchens were everywhere and while that remains a true classic, we’ve rounded up 5 of the best kitchen color trends that are taking cabinetry and our Pinterest board by storm.

Every Shade of Green

You’d be hard-pressed to find a trending kitchen that isn’t some variation of green. From the palest shade of mint to muted sage or deep, saturated tones, this colorway is HOT.

Natural Wood

We previously discussed our love of blonde wood here. While technically this isn’t a paint color, the look of natural wood is undeniably gorgeous and very of the moment. Whether outfitting a whole kitchen or just an island sporting beautifully stained wood, this look brings warmth and raw, natural elements to a space.

Warm Neutrals

All white kitchens are getting a warm-up in 2019 with the introduction of earthy colors like greige and mushroom hues. These neutrals look extra pretty paired with marble and brass for a cozy, classic kitchen style.

Two-Tone Cabinetry

Another trend in kitchens is the two-tone cabinetry look.  If you aren’t ready to go full tuxedo, meaning one color on the bottom cabinetry and another on the top, then a wall of cabinetry or a free-standing island in a different color works really well with this look. An expanded color palette adds sophistication

Dark Pairings

Dark cabinetry paired with dark countertops is a thing and it’s gorgeous. This moody monotone look feels stately and old world while still serving up modern vibes. If you are loving the dark kitchen trend, take it one step further with a dark stone countertop and then tag #IDCOatHome because we MUST see that beauty.
