Choosing Color Over Neutrals: When to Embrace Colored Cabinetry in Your Home

While neutral cabinetry has long been a staple in home design, part of the GOS ethos is to break free from the monotony and embrace the world of colored cabinetry. Here at GOS we love neutral cabinets in main spaces, paired with color in ancillary spaces like closets, beverage centers, bathrooms, and laundry rooms. We will guide you through the decision-making process, helping you determine the ideal moments to incorporate colored cabinetry into your home for a truly personalized and dynamic space.

Expressing Your Style: Infusing Personality into Your Living Spaces

Colored cabinetry becomes a compelling choice when you're eager to make a personal statement with your home's design. Whether your style is bold and eclectic or subtle and sophisticated, colored cabinets provide a canvas for expressing your unique taste.

Creating a Focal Point: Making a Statement in Key Spaces

Identify key spaces in your home where you want to create a focal point. Colored cabinetry can be strategically placed in kitchens, bathrooms, or entertainment areas, drawing attention with color that becomes a defining element of the room.

Enhancing Natural Light: Brightening Darker Spaces

Colored cabinetry can be an excellent choice in rooms with limited natural light such as closets. We love to use a bold statement in a closet to brighten up darker spaces, creating an inviting space to start your day!

Complementing Architectural Features: Harmonizing with Your Home's Design

If your home boasts unique architectural features or specific design elements, colored cabinetry can be selected to complement and enhance these features. Consider using cabinetry colors that tie into existing design elements for a cohesive and harmonious look.

Saturated Neutrals: Can translate into bold statement as "Color".

Picture grays, beiges, and taupes and the opposite of white taking on a new life as they become saturated with depth and character. This isn't just about adding color; it's about making a statement, turning your living spaces into a canvas for bold expressions.

Breaking up Monotony: Diversifying from a Neutral Palette

Colored cabinetry serves as an excellent tool for breaking away from the monotony of neutral color schemes. If your home predominantly features neutrals, adding colored cabinets can introduce visual interest and create a more dynamic, lively atmosphere.

Knowing when to use colored cabinetry is about understanding your personal style, the unique characteristics of your home, and the atmosphere you want to create. Whether you're aiming for a complete design overhaul or seeking subtle enhancements, colored cabinetry offers a versatile and expressive solution. Trust your instincts, embrace the power of color, and watch as your living spaces come alive with character and personality.
