Maybe it’s because I now get Coastal Living magazine, but I seem to be noticing blue painted cabinets in kitchens.
Typically, I’m not a huge fan of blue – particularly not where I’m preparing food.
Still, I kind of like some of these kitchens.
I like the black countertops with the soft blue color, although the floor seems a bit busy for me.
I think the blue kitchens I like best are the ones that are bluish-gray or a sort of aqua color.
I’m particularly drawn to the quaint kitchen below, which I found at Better Homes and Gardens.
I think the pale aqua cabinets with the yellow walls is so happy, especially in a small kitchen.
And although the kitchen below is a little too country-ish for me, I do think the pale blue on the cabinets is pretty. It’s another kitchen from BHG.
I think the blue may be prettiest – to me – when it’s on the lower cabinets only. The helps keep from the color from becoming too much.
I love the way the kitchen below uses blue cabinets below and white above – but with blue peaking through the glass doors.
Generally, I haven’t been as fond of the darker blue cabinets I’ve seen. But I think the southwestern style kitchen below is kind of cool. I’m not sure that turquoise color would work in any other kitchen but it’s pretty here.
What do you think of blue cabinets? Would you be so bold?
