If you're embarking on a kitchen redesign or installing a new kitchen from scratch—and you want to add a passionate pop of color to your design—red kitchen cabinets could be a great option to explore.
Kitchens are traditionally soothing spaces meant to welcome the morning and gently start the day—but in recent years, bold colors have begun to become more common in kitchen style; it's not uncommon to see vibrant fluorescents, deep oranges and yellows, as well as the occasional red kitchen. In particular, red kitchen cabinets have sprung up as a trend, allowing for a lively and somewhat playful touch in contemporary kitchens.
Red kitchen cabinets can work with just about any kitchen style, but they're particularly popular in modern or "modern retro" designs. Sleek laminate cabinets in red, featuring sharp angles and clean lines, can liven up a modern kitchen by adding color and personality to an otherwise industrial look.
If your kitchen's style is more traditional, red kitchen cabinets can still work just fine—but you may want to consider using the color more judiciously. For example, cabinets on a kitchen island could offer a pop of color, or bottom or top cabinets could be a deep red, with their complementary cousins featuring another color like dark brown or black or gray.
