Best Blues for Your Home

Move over tan...there’s a new color in town: blue!

When it comes to choosing a trendy, yet timeless color, blue is it! There are literally hundreds of shades of blue to choose from. Whether you are looking for a deep moody blue or a lighter shade, these blue hues are sure to please! Which blue is best for your custom cabinet design? We love color at C & C Cabinets, keep reading to see some of the Cabinet Chic's favorite blues!

Feeling the Blues

During many of our design consultations recently, we keep being asked is blue in and will it last for their cabinetry? Blue tones are considered “cool” colors and they can either brighten up a room or create drama. From evoking images of the ocean, or evening skies, you can never go wrong with blue when you want to create the perfect ambiance in your home. When picking out a blue color for your custom cabinetry, we’ll likely recommend 2-3 sample colors. Keep in mind that sunlight, countertops, flooring, and even cabinet pulls can all affect how the paint appears in your space.  

We love BLUE! From muted blue-gray tones to dramatic dark navy,  
This is a shade you can count on to be stunningly chic for a long time!

Best Blue Tones for Cabinetry

Blue Gray Color

As far as neutral shades go, blue-grays are perfection! They can fade into the background for a calming effect, and allow your decor and furniture to shine. These tones can literally fit any room, regardless of size or space. If you want to choose a blue-gray, here are a few of our favorites:

Dark Blue Color  

Dark blues can add dramatic flair to any space. Generally, we would recommend using these darker colors as accent colors because they can tend to take over a room. These shades on a buffet hutch or island make for great haute couture accents. Using a dramatic bright white to accent deep blue is stunning! Be bold! Here are our favorite dramatic dark blues:

This color is a chameleon. Is it blue? Is it black? Green? It’s all of the above! Hague Blue is a moody dark blue color that will add that certain je ne sais quoi to your space!
