Red cabinets: 3 ways to add warmth to kitchen design

Red kitchen cabinets look great in many styles of kitchens: mix with pine tables and gingham tile countertops for a country kitchen; pair with steel and stone for a modern look; or "go retro" with vintage appliances, a soda fountain and stools.

Whether you prefer red cabinets, or red on your kitchen island, these three kitchen design tips are sure to help you liven up your kitchen with a new look.

Red cabinets: Design advice

  1. Reface kitchen cabinets with red

    Reface old cabinets with red doors and you will see a dramatic shift in the look and feel of your kitchen. Whether you sand and paint, or replace cabinet doors, you can let the color do the talking. Keep hardware simple and sleek, or even non-existent. Modern kitchen cabinet styles feature doors that open with a light pressure--no handles needed.

  2. It's what's on the inside: "almost" red cabinets

    If you prefer to go for a touch of red, and you have glass inserts in your cabinet doors, try painting the walls and shelves inside the cabinetry. This small punch of color is great for folks, who prefer not to splash crimson all over the room: red accents make a big impression without overwhelming a kitchen's design.

  3. Make your kitchen island standout
  4. Another way to spice up your kitchen with smaller changes is to add red kitchen cabinet doors to the
    center island only. You can add kick to the room's perimeter with accents in the form of red kitchen
    appliances, utensils and kitchen towels.

No matter what approach you take, the brightness and energy of red cabinets, accents or appliances allows you to create a warm atmosphere to host family and friends, all year round.
