Homeowners taking on new kitchen projects sometimes find it challenging to know where to begin. Stephanie Pierce, director of design and trends at MasterBrand Cabinets, provided her expertise in the PureWow article “The Smartest Updates You Can Make to Your Kitchen in 2021 (Plus 2 to Avoid).” The piece can be found online and lists the best and worst updates to make in a kitchen that will either enhance your space or potentially prove to be a waste of time and money.
Consider Bright Colors for Kitchen Updates
The article’s first piece of advice relates to Shaker-style cabinets: “’If you’re finishing things off with a fresh coat of paint, you can’t go wrong with white, though more people are gravitating toward nature-inspired colors, like dark green and ocean-inspired blues,” notes Stephanie Pierce. However, no color is off the table, eye-catching colors are becoming more common with kitchen updates as homeowners tend towards more color confidence when choosing colors that reflect their own style.
MasterBrand Cabinets has a wide portfolio of Shaker-style cabinets in a variety of colors to match any design aesthetic, such as Interesting Aqua or North Star from Decora Cabinetry, pictured above. Other bold colors Stephanie recommends homeowners consider include Straw, Dahlia and Endive from Omega Cabinetry’s lineup, but you will find an array of similar colors in any of our made-to-order kitchen lines as bold statement colors are a hot topic for a new kitchen update.
