Favorite Colored Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen Talk


What is your favorite colored kitchen cabinets?  That is the question I asked in a poll at the bottom of my Colored Kitchen Cabinets post back in February of this year.  The results are ongoing from this most popular post that keeps on giving like a Willie Wonka Everlasting Gobstopper.  Today’s post is about the results along with showing more colored kitchens for inspiration.

Colored kitchen cabinets - Black kitchen cabinets are a favorite

Surprisingly, the most popular kitchen cabinet color is Black.  I was not expecting that.  This is a more recent result because for many months Robin Egg Blue was the most popular color.  I like these black cabinets for the lighted glass with crown molding and old world style.  They may be a tad dark and moody for some taste, but not for me.

This kitchen also has the upper lighted glass cabinets with crown molding but is a brighter presentation.  The chatter for this kitchen on Houzz is about the how much the white island stools are liked, the wallpaper, where can you get the cabinets, what color are they (I just think they are black), and the back splash.

If black is your favorite color you are classy and perceived as powerful, highly sexy, but committed, emotions and feelings have great depth, and you can often be dramatic. 

The poll in Colored Kitchen Cabinets is a little skewed because it doesn’t include all the colors in the rainbow to pick from.  In Colored Kitchen Cabinets, the question I ask is:

What is your favorite colored kitchen cabinet shown?  Here are the results with the current votes tallied:

  • Black – 51
  • Robin Egg Blue – 49
  • Turquoise/aqua – 35
  • Cream – 28
  • Green – 25
  • Yellow -21
  • Red – 14
  • Pink – 2

Poor pink has only 2 votes.  I admit my pink kitchen cabinet photo for the poll is not the best so it did not stand much of a chance.  For this post, I am leaving pink out.

What about white?  If I had put white in the lineup it would seem that it would be the most popular.  Have you seen the mass amount of white kitchens pinned on Pinterest?

Taken from my Elegant white kitchens post.

If your favorite color is white you are spiritually in tune and like peaceful surroundings.  You like things to be clean and precise and have a passion for truth and innocence.
Favorite Colored Kitchen Cabinets - Robin Egg Blue

Robin egg blue is in 2nd place in popularity.  Blue is a top favorite color in general and means you are conservative and trustworthy.  You are patient, dependable, productive, and keep things clean and tidy.

Aqua Kitchen cabinets


Turquoise/aqua 3rd place is popular for 50s retro kitchens for appliances, but especially by do-it-yourself home owners. If you love the color turquoise, you are friendly, caring, and easy to communicate with.

Colored kitchen cabinets

Cream got 4th place, but if I had shown this kitchen maybe it would be in 1st place.  It’s so warm with the wood floors and island and the brick wall and lighting. 

Colored kitchen cabinets - green

Green is 5th and darn hard to find.  I refer back to my original post which is a nice country kitchen.  Green is the color that is known to be relaxing.  Your are generous, like nature, are lucky, but can have problems with envy and guilt.

Yellow is 6th place and these yellow cabinets and whole kitchen set up and decorating are a favorite of mine from a post I did about French Country Kitchens.

Is your favorite color yellow?  Then you are intelligent and charming, enjoy learning and sharing, but a tad too criticizing.  You are happy as sunshine, creative but also lazy.  Watch out for jealousy and dishonesty.

red colored cabinets

Red is next at 7th place.  This kitchen is unusual with an old world lantern and then the Chinese flair in the upper lighted cabinets.

Red is the color of passion, energy, desire for life, strength, excitement, and risk taking.

Houzz - deep blue cabinets

Blue kitchen island cabinets

Dark blue and white, now I like that.  This chunky stand-alone island with posts looks like it is painted a faded denim blue.
