Don't Be Afraid to Go Dark: Deep Hues for Your Home

If you're looking to add depth and richness to your home, don't be afraid to go dark. Deep rich hues can create a cozy and inviting atmosphere, and they can also be used to make a bold statement!

Whether you're painting your walls or your cabinetry, there are plenty of dark paint colors to choose from. And if you're not ready to commit to a dark hue, you can always add some accent pieces in a deep color.

Go dark with these chic design tips from C & C Cabinets!  

Design Notes

  • Dark colors on accent walls add drama and depth
  • Dark cabinetry can be very chic - try pairing it with marble countertops or glass backsplashes for a luxe look
  • Infuse your space with dark furnishing and accessories for a cohesive look
  • We love deep colors like Sherwin Williams Inkwell or Benjamin Moore’s Hale Navy -they are seriously stunning on custom cabinetry & compliment many interior design styles

Incorporating Dark Hues Into Your Home

We believe your home should be a reflection of your unique style, and that includes choosing colors that make a statement. Deep hues can make your space cozy and inviting. When used properly, it can also make your room feel larger.  

Lean into a dark palette by using these hues strategically to make the room pop.

With so many beautiful rich dark hues to choose from, there is no need to be afraid to go dark when it comes to inspiring your home’s design!

Go Bold

If you aren’t sure where to start, consider using dark colors for your kitchen, bathroom cabinetry, or on an accent wall.  

Painting accent walls or cabinets in a dark color like rich blue, black, brown, or gray can add visual interest to your space. But if you aren’t ready to commit to a dramatically dark kitchen or bath, painting base and crown moldings in a dark color can create understated drama that can visually increase ceiling height and turn architectural millwork into a highlight for your space.  

Or you can make a subtle yet beautiful change by adding matte black hardware to cabinets, built-ins, and drawers to add a small but impactful touch of darker elements throughout your home.  

Whatever you do, lean into a dark palette by using these hues strategically to make the room pop.  

Balance with Lighter Colors

Get creative and incorporate light neutrals throughout your space to contrast the dark tones.  

Using a dark color palette requires a little balance.

We love the drama that two-tone cabinetry can bring to a kitchen space. You can opt for darker shades on the bottom cabinetry and lighter up top or vice-versa. Nice!

Illuminate It

Lighting is a crucial element that enhances dark color schemes. Try spotlighting dark elements with pendants or chandeliers, so an accent wall or bold cabinetry is illuminated instead of fading into the background.  

Light and color balance is key to mastering dark accents whether they are in a bathroom, kitchen, mudroom, or living space.
