3 Ways To Use Urbane Bronze In The Kitchen (The 2021 Sherwin Williams Color Of The Year)

This past September, we looked ahead to the top home color predictions for 2021. Now, several weeks have passed, and as we inch closer to the new year, paint manufacturers are beginning to roll out their picks for 2021 Color of the Year. Benjamin Moore opted for Aegean Teal, a soothing shade of blue-green that would look fantastic when paired with crisp white laundry room or bathroom cabinets. But today, we are going to focus on Urbane Bronze, the Sherwin Williams 2021 Color of the Year. Warm and tranquil, this hue is neutral with a sophisticated, earthy vibe, making it ideal to use throughout the entire home — especially the kitchen! Here are three ways to add a touch of Urbane Bronze to your space.

Did you know TheRTAStore now offers pre-assembled cabinets with custom paint colors by Sherwin Williams? In fact, you’ll find over a thousand choices in our Color Picker, including Urbane Bronze! Simply select from six different door styles, and then customize your wall, base and kitchen island cabinetry with your favorite color (or colors). It could not be more easy.


Look closely at certain natural and engineered stone countertops and you’ll surely see shades of bronze! Scultura Quartz, Custos Quartz, Calacatta Quartzite are all great examples. But granite takes the cake when it comes to matching Urbane Bronze custom cabinets. Granite countertops feature a natural variation in color and tone, with unique designs and patterns. From Pomodoro and Cellini, to Sangallo, Canova and Bianco Antico Granite, there are so many stunning options.

11-3-20 RTA3-Katharine Collection Cabinet Pull in Brushed Oil Rubbed BronzeMetallic Elements

Opportunities to add bronze metallic elements in the kitchen include faucets, light fixtures, and even kitchen hoods to match your Urbane Bronze custom cabinets. Bronze can also be found in kitchen knobs and pulls to match any and all kitchen cabinet finishes. Options include honey bronze, dark bronze, oil-rubbed bronze, distressed oil-rubbed bronze, and brushed oil-rubbed bronze. You can even carry the color scheme to your bathroom cabinets with a bespoke aged or antique bronze vessel sink!

Sherwin Williams describes Urbane Bronze as a down-to-earth color rooted in nature, and we agree! To us, it seems like it’s the perfect shade for a fall kitchen remodel and an ideal choice as we head towards 2021.

“Now more than ever, our homes have become the backdrop to our lives, reminding us that the moments worth cherishing have always been right in front of us. As we’re looking to create the ultimate retreat for reflection and renewal, we’re turning to a hue whose natural simplicity and nature-inspired energy cultivate a sense of calm from the ground up.”
