2023 Kitchen Cabinet style trends

Two-toned Cabinets

Two-toned cabinets have made waves so far in 2023 and are timeless. This trend can be adaptable for any size of kitchen and cabinet space. 

This could be done with lighter color upper cabinets with a pop of color for the bottom ones. A lighter color on top can help make the room feel larger.


If you have an island in your kitchen, you can highlight it with a different color. Usually, this is done with a darker color than the rest of the cabinets. This adds major contrast to the space which makes it stand out completely.

White is the most common color to see in combination with a darker color, but the possibilities are endless!

Neutral-painted kitchen cabinets

Neutral shades like beige, cream, grey, greige, and of course white are all in style and are timeless. These classic colors can be adapted to fit any design preference. They can also be dressed up with decor on countertops, glass doors, intriguing light fixtures, etc.

These shades help kitchens feel lighter and more open. It can be great for kitchens that are small or that don’t get a lot of natural light. 

Dark colors on kitchen cabinets

Darker shades like black and dark blue/navy are in right now! These colors can be used to accent lighter colors on countertops or backsplash, like the picture shown to the left, or a completely dark kitchen makes a bold statement.

Darker cabinets look stunning with gold or bronze hardware. Plus, imperfections or dust and dirt won’t show as easily on darker wood. 






Sage green on kitchen cabinets

This color is eye-catching and can be adapted to fit any style. It also looks great with any color hardware.
