What color should I choose for my kitchen cabinets and interior doors?


Reader‘s question

"I remodel my house and I would like to ask your advice regarding the type of wood that I will choose for my cabinets and the interior doors. I have the same 60cmx60cm tile floor throughout the entire house in light grey color. I prefer white lacquer interior doors as there is no hallway and the doors are visible from the living room. Regarding the kitchen cabinets I am thinking of down cabinets in wenge and high-gloss lacquer upper cabinets but I do not know which color. The entrance door is in wenge. Do you agree with my selections? Thank you in advance".

Our recommendations

The color scheme you are thinking to apply in your space refers to a contemporary decorating style in simple lines.
The white interior doors are a good option, as they give the space purity and brightness combined with the light grey floor tiles. The entrance door matches the wenge kitchen cabinets.

Regarding the kitchen cabinets a dichromatic color scheme is an elegant choice. You can make various combinations of white gloss and wenge. You can also use color gloss on some cabinets, which match the rest of the room elements, ie terracotta, lime green or beige color.
