Because kitchens are the place where we spend the most time, they’re the most important space in a home. The cabinets and fixtures need to withstand daily use and a lot of wear and tear, and the design should stand the test of time. Because of this, most people opt for neutrals when designing their kitchen: white and wood, gray and white, etc.
A few years ago I chose a blue gray color for cabinets in a kitchen renovation and I’ve never regretted it. I like to see all shades of blue in kitchens (and bathrooms) and in the past year, we’re seeing more blue hues in kitchens, especially navy. To follow are a collection of modern kitchens incorporating forever classic blue kitchen cabinets.

If you don’t want to commit to all blue cabinets, consider a shade of blue on just the island or the lower cabinets. I love the Providence Blue by Benjamin Moore that Sarah from Life on Virginia Street painted her island. Gorgeous! Tour the full kitchen here.
What are your thoughts on blue kitchen cabinets, would you choose them for a kitchen?
