Kitchen remodeling has embraced a wide range of colors since the turn of the century. A look back through the decades reveals a plethora of colors that were popular in cabinets, décor, and appliances at one time. Colors such as black, crimson, and green were frequently used in kitchens during the 1930s and 1940s. Softer tones of Classic Blue Hues for Your Kitchen, pink, and yellow, as well as candy-colored cabinets accentuated by matching appliances, dominated the 1950s. Moreover, cabinets were built of steel rather than wood.
Southern Belt Pays Tribute to the Past, Present, and Future
Back in the 1960s, wood cabinetry, wood trim, and rustic textures mirrored the suburbanization trend. Remember when Lucy and Ricky moved to the Connecticut countryside in the I Love Lucy episodes? Knotty pine kitchens, exposed brick, stone, and cherry red gingham accents were all the rage back then.
Some trends may never resurface, while others are ready to resurface with a fresh new take. From all-out retro’ to the ’80s and ’90s, a time when dark walnut or piney wood grain cabinets had dark hammered knobs or pulls; some trends may never resurface, while others are ready to resurface with a fresh new take. Southern Belt’s kitchen remodeling experts are seeing a comeback of classic traditional blues, like colonial blue, which is no longer a once-in-a-blue-moon choice, but is now a kitchen remodeling standard.
We’ve compiled a list of some of our best renovation projects that incorporate blue into the design change, and you can see more kitchen remodeling ideas in our Inspiration Gallery.
Creating a New Blue Tradition
This kitchen remodel has Colonial Blue Statesman doors offset by shining bright worktops, as well as lilac accents in the backsplash and multi-colored chairs chosen by the family’s children. The designer used Southern Belt’s distinctive refacing to give a once monotone wood kitchen a new lease on life. For a farmhouse look, classic wood bar stools go well with blue cabinets.
Blue for the Bicentennial
When the homeowners wanted a modern take on a bicentennial appearance, they turned to an old Philadelphia brownstone. Lower cabinets are Colonial Blue, while above cabinets are Satin White. Weybourne countertops and a glass backsplash add to the illusion of space expansion.
The homeowner’s favorite color, blue, had to be in this hybrid kitchen. The peninsula was removed and replaced with Satin White Shaker style doors. Colonial Blue gives the island a timeless, eye-catching appeal.
Blue is The Denim Of Kitchen Design.
Blue goes with practically any design style, much like your favorite pair of blue jeans. When it comes to kitchen colors, blue is a hue that is rising in popularity. Color lends new life to kitchen renovation projects, from light and gray blues to rich, dark navy hues.
