Choosing a cabinet color for your kitchen is arguably the most important decision you have to make. And it’s something we here at Semihandmade think about often. So much so that we’ve asked the experts for the colors they’re loving now, but what about you? Our customer!
We were curious what the most popular cabinet color is—according to YOU—so we did the math and here are the top five contenders.

White cabinets are classic for a reason. They pair well with many different styles and create a welcoming, neutral base for the most-used room of the home. Inspired? Explore a few of our favorites to get started on your own project and check out our Supermatte White Shaker, Supermatte White Slab, and White Quarterline fronts.
Navy, or as we call it, Night Sky, is a natural second most-popular shade. Blue cabinets, especially navy, tend to act as a more visually interesting neutral that brings a bold, but still soft aesthetic into the kitchen. Shop Supermatte Night Sky Shaker (featured in Kismet House’s kitchen!), Supermatte Night Sky Slab, and Night Sky Quarterline fronts to get the look.
3. Choose Your Own

Our paintable DIY Shaker and Slab fronts are beloved—a top three choice for Semihandmade customers—as you can quite literally choose your own adventure and paint whichever color you’d like. As expected, this takes semi-custom kitchens to a whole new level. And while we respect the super colorfully-inclined, we have to say, green kitchens are gaining on blue as the new “neutral”. You also can’t go wrong with almost-white, but not quite, cream cabinets. Choosing your own grey paint color (though we also offer many front options in various shades!) is a great way to put paintable fronts to use. And just in case you’re considering this option for your space, here are tips on how to paint our fronts yourself!

Turns out the fourth most popular color isn’t a “color” per se, but a functional and beautiful wood-tone front. Our collaboration with designers and bloggers Chris Loves Julia brings us the Cove front, a classic Shaker style in a light, but still warm wood-like textured thermofoil. The design works across styles and rooms, seamlessly fitting into various sizes of both kitchens and bathrooms.

The fifth most popular color is bold, sure. But committing to black cabinets doesn’t have to be a statement—these kitchens prove it. You can go two-tone and let the lowers standout, like you see here in Yellow Brick Home’s kitchen renovation. Or balance the dark hue with a lighter counter surface and backsplash. No matter what vision you pursue, consider our Supermatte Black Shaker, Supermatte Black Slab, and Black Quarterline fronts.
