Pinterest called it: Gray is the next big color trend. The most popular gray paints have a soft blue undertone, casting a slightly moodier and fresher hue than their warmer counterparts.

Blue Hue

Blue lower kitchen cabinets are the most popular right now, according to our readers. We're not surprised; this chic hue casts a colorful spell on a room that's traditionally monochrome. Opt for a navy tone or a beautiful French blue, like Farrow & Ball's Lulworth Blue.

Deep forest green tones are fantastic to create a sexy, moody vibe in the kitchen at night. If you spend more time in the kitchen in the evenings, spice things up with a dark blue-green lick of paint, crisp marble countertops, and brass fixtures.

Greige is the new beige. While the neutral tone has been associated with "boring décor" in recent years, it's experiencing a revival. The new greige tones are cooler and pair well with warm ivory tones and mixed metals.

Rose Quartz was recently Pantone's 2016 Color of the Year, so it comes as no surprise that it's now popping up in kitchens everywhere. While the soft hue is not for everyone, it's a beautiful, bold move for pastel lovers. Pair a cool dusty pink with grays and burnished copper tones to offset the nursery vibe.

Interior designers like Orlando Soria and Emily Henderson are both fans of the minty hues that are increasingly popular in décor these days. Extend the trend to your kitchen cabinets for a cool natural look. The color pairs especially well with neutral tones and leafy plants.

Almost Black

Last but not least, we love a dramatic almost-black kitchen, especially in spaces that lack natural light. The dark tones make a space feel cozier and more inviting.
