Why we love it!

We love using navy cabinets as part of our kitchen designs because it adds a feature and statement to the space! Pair them with white or wooden upper cabinets and you have a beautiful combination… For anyone looking to add some color into their kitchen or bathroom but not sure about going too bold – navy blue is a great place to start.

How to use Navy Cabinets 

Navy blue cabinets can be used in both the kitchen and bathroom…

In kitchens, navy blue is a great color to use for the lower cabinets as it helps to ground them in the space. They add a subtle color to the interior all while bringing warmth to the space too. If you have an island, consider doing the kitchen island cabinets in navy blue to create a contrast from the main run of kitchen cabinets behind.

For bathrooms, navy blue is a great color to use for the vanity unit! It’s a sophisticated color that you’ll never get tired of.

What to watch for.

There are some considerations to take into account when thinking of having navy blue cabinets in your kitchen or bathroom.

As with all paint colors or finishes used in home renovation projects, you need to be careful that the navy color you choose isn’t too cold in undertones. Blue itself can be a cold color but ensure that the navy is dark enough or has undertones of red in so that it appears more warm than cold.

We also caution clients who have very closed in kitchens to steer clear when their main goal is to create an open feeling. 

Above all – choose a navy blue that you will absolutely love for years to come!

Ways to make navy cabinets last in your home

Navy cabinets can last many years in your home if chosen correctly alongside your other finishes.

Navy cabinets work really well when paired with neutral finishes like wood, white, light cream, and even black. Use wood floating shelves to add texture and warmth to the space and keep your countertop neutral with a white marble or quartz to really make the navy cabinets pop!

To really make sure the navy cabinets last in your home, make sure to keep it to the lower half of your kitchen with contrasting upper cabinets, or just for the island.
