3 Ways To Incorporate Summer’s Hottest Hue In Your Kitchen

This season’s hottest hue actually falls on the cool side of the color wheel. Blue is one of those classic summer colors, with shades that run the gamut from traditional to contemporary. From serene sky blue to Naval, the Sherwin Williams Color of the Year for 2020, blue has a relaxing vibe that makes us feel right at home. Here are a few of our favorite ways to incorporate blue in the kitchen.

Custom Cabinets In Shades Of Light And Dark Blue

Dark blue kitchen cabinets are right on point and are one of the hottest kitchen color trends for summer. Chances are, you’ve noticed blue cabinets popping up in popular home magazines and being featured on your favorite DIY home shows in the TV room. At The RTA Store, we offer a wide selection of kitchen cabinet finishes, including pre-assembled cabinets with custom color.

Choose from a vast selection of Sherwin-Williams paint colors, including many shades of blue, with separate options for wall and base cabinets, as well as your new kitchen island.

Feeling Blue All Over In The Kitchen

There is a reason Sherwin-Williams and the color experts at Pantone both chose a shade of dark blue as their Color of the Year for 2020. Blue is a relaxing hue that creates a soothing, summer vibe when used throughout the home. As a neutral, blue is timeless and suited for every room in the home. It is one of the most dependable, comfortable, and beloved color families.

Because of blue’s ongoing popularity and liveability, it’s easy to accessorize in the kitchen with blue accents — whether it’s a lovely blue paint color for the walls, or blue dinnerware, table linens, and appliances (both large and small), summer’s hottest hue helps to create a tranquil kitchen that will never go out of style!
