The renowned brand of colors Behr could not stay away from coming up with its own palette of paint colors for cabinets. Mostly for the kitchen, yet appropriate for cabinetry in the bathroom, laundry room, or other spaces as well, the array of shades impresses with its variety, including good old variations tried by time and new splashes, both of which promise a trendy effect for years to come. Consider a makeover in 2022 and stay trendy for the following years with one of the offered paint colors.
Let’s get directly to the subject! Instead of revealing the paint colors one by one in a common list, we would like to separate them by categories so that you can easily find the one that matches your preference, and a little bonus – a quick review of the exceptionally popular paint colors of this kind in 2022 at the end of the list. To your attention: the best cabinet paint colors categorized by mood and style!
Best Paints by Mood
Calming with Silky White PPU7-12
Close to the category of true shades of white, this variation offers a slightly creamy perspective on white. The paint color itself is a favorite among designers due to its ability to not look but feel silky, meaning a subtle sense of warmth, which is welcome in contemporary interiors. Once applied to the kitchen cabinets, it requires gold hardware to enhance the warm effect, which in combination with a marble countertop, works perfectly for a kitchen that has a bit from both worlds – traditional and modern.
Dramatic with Carbon N520-7
Despite its resemblance to black, Carbon is a very dark shade of gray. You can also see it as a black variation covered with a slight haze effect, noticed when the color is applied to a surface. When working with this shade in the kitchen, designers suggest combining it with silver hardware to preserve its intriguing appearance and let the mystery prevail. It is indeed a bold option and will surely set a dramatic environment, although it mandatorily requires a light background.
Versatile with Ultra Pure White 1850
The whitest of all white shades, Ultra Pure White, is a perfect definition of a true shade of white, slightly gravitating towards the cool side. It is very light, refreshing, and expanding, while its clean base makes it a great companion for various design approaches. As versatile as it is, when integrated into the kitchen, it likes to be combined with silver hardware to preserve its relatively cool nature for a sleek effect.
Inviting with Casual Khaki N300-3
This medium paint color reveals warm yet balanced notes of tan with a soft appearance that is able to harmonize the interior with a single touch. Therefore, you can safely apply it to the lower cabinets only, combining them with white upper cabinets, or go with a full-khaki kitchen. Additionally, consider texture if your interior lacks some, yet, mandatorily, go with brass hardware to preserve the inviting feel.
Cabinet Paints by Style
Casual with Swiss Coffee 12
One of the most popular white paint colors at Behr, Swiss Coffee, impresses with its warm base, slightly touched by an airy effect and penetrated by almost unnoticeable yellow notes that stand behind its appealing look. Already a classic, it can safely be applied to the kitchen cabinets in an all-white interior or diluted with a few splashes of brass to enhance the soft effect.
Contemporary with Dark Everglade HDC-CL-21A
Very dark green with a natural base that brings the outdoors indoors. Seemingly devoid of undertones yet covered by a slightly foggy surface, this paint color offers a neutralized perspective on the vibrant green and makes it a perfect shade for a modern interior that looks sleek and brings in something unique. We suggest opting for silver hardware to preserve the fresh contemporary air. Still, a few drops of gold on such elements as the pendants would not spoil the picture if you want to embrace elegance.
Classic with Cameo White MQ3-32
This pleasant shade of white with tiny drops of softness and a slightly aged effect is the perfect classic shade of white that works exceptionally well in traditional interiors. Don’t hesitate to add a few splashes of gold to embrace the vintage values and preserve the warm notes this paint color radiates.
