Kitchen Cabinet Color Trends for Your Bay Area Home

If you follow our project blogs, or other home improvement resources like Houzz.com, you know that painted kitchen cabinets are hugely popular. And, unlike more fickle trends that come and go in a flash, this one just isn’t going anywhere.

Painting your cabinets opens the doors to endless options, possibilities, and combinations that can be tailored to your specific home. Working with your professional painting company is a fun opportunity to add real value and style in a cost-effective way, while radically transforming this central space.

And, it all starts with just a bit of inspiration.

What Are the Most Popular Kitchen Cabinet Colors?

White and grey are leading the pack.

Why?

While they might not be the most visually exciting all on their own, they offer a timeless neutrality. And, with this neutrality comes the ability to mix in other colors and textures without making the space busy.

Above and below are examples of recent projects we’ve completed that showcase exactly how much style a clean, white finish can deliver.

If white and grey aren’t cutting it for you on their own, here are a few more stylish ideas to consider:

  • Make your island a statement piece - If your cabinets are neutral, your island could be your ticket to introducing vibrant color in a limited way.

  • Different colors for your upper and lower cabinets - Typically a darker color is chosen for the lower sections and a light option for the upper cabinets. This is an attractive way to mix up the palette a bit.

  • Add something natural - Natural wood shelving, stools, or even a section of butcher block countertop (perhaps on your island) adds a nice touch. This is very stylish, and it also can work well with a variety of surrounding colors.

Talk To Your Local Painting Company

As we touched on above, the very best decision you can make is to find and partner with a quality local painting company. There’s no margin for error or grace for amateur work when it comes to your cabinets; they can be tough surfaces to smoothly transform in a truly lasting way.

Customer Reviews

“Very easy to work with, they did an outstanding job with our project of re-painting our painting our kitchen cabinets. Given the scope of the job and that our kitchen is roughly half of our upstairs living area they did a fantastic job of minimizing the mess. Workmanship was top notch, would definitely recommend.”

— Vince Scola

“MB Jessee just finished our exterior and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The foreman (Pedro) and lead painter (Ricardo) were incredible to work with: they communicated scheduling clearly, Ricardo was a joy to be around every day, the showed up early every day, were incredibly tidy and did great paint work. The final walk through experience was incredible. Pedro pointed out items I missed demonstrating a clear desire to complete another quality project. I highly recommend them. As others have noted they definitely aren't the cheapest but you quickly realize that you're getting what you pay for. The 3 year guarantee is also a nice touch since there are likely touch up items that will show up after the job is done.”

— Joshua Jansen

“Thank you for the support you have given the Women's Cancer Resource Center over the past year!”

— Margo - Director Women's Cancer Resource Center

“My entire experience with MB Jesse was very professional. The crew were very friendly and super accommodating of my ridiculous schedule and geriatric pets in the house. The finished product, which was pretty much my entire house, far exceeds my expectations. Would definitely work with them again!”

— Heather Jordan

They pay attention to detail and listen to the needs of their clients. In addition, they give back to the community. A Five Star team all the way around.”

— Erin Troy

“We just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the work of MB Jessee Painting and your employees. Everything turned out beautiful. Our foreman was great! He was punctual, professional, neat and very accommodating ... and went the extra mile. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family.”

— Michelle & Rivers Gee

“The completed 'Client Satisfaction Survey' we sent in only modestly reflects our total satisfaction with the work. As a retired small business owner, I compliment you on setting 'best practices' that are consistently followed. Everything described in your marketing materials was a reality! The crew is a super bowl team and our neighbors commented on how quiet they were. We are very happy to be a client of MB Jessee.”

“I love the article in the paper on your company. Thank you for supporting our community by painting at the Claremont Middle School. Thanks!”

— Carla Banks

“Just wanted to let you know that the crew was great to have around the house for the past two weeks. All three of them were professional, courteous, and attentive to my thoughts/concerns and were extremely knowledgeable. They paid great attention to the detail and it shows.”

— Mark & Roberta Gross

“M.B. Jessee painted the exterior of my Spanish house over 9 years ago, and they did such an incredible job that they are still getting referrals from me today. The paint is holding up perfectly -- there is absolutely no peeling chipping or any other deterioration. I still remember that my final walk-through list consisted of items written on one side of a 3x5 index card (and I'm REAL picky about my house!) However, when Matt and I did that walk-through over HALF the items were no longer an issue, as his team had noticed them first and they had already been resolved.”
