The Kitchen: Cabinetry Style & Color

February 21, 2017 - Posted by: earthelements

Most people will tell you that the kitchen is one of the most important spaces in their home. This is the place where friends and family gather to share stories and make memories. So, if you are looking for some inspiration for your new kitchen, Earth Elements is here to help. We’d love to assist you in any one of our Design Centers, where our sales professionals can steer you down the path of decisions, until you arrive at the perfect space. 

Starting Line: Cabinetry

Style and color. The style and color of your kitchen cabinets serve as a foundation for the overall look and design. So, it's important to take your time and narrow down the vision for your space.


Earth Elements has partnered with six unique and truly inspiring cabinetry manufacturers. Each collection offers a different approach to construction, style, customization and materials. Our hand-picked manufacturers offer a wide variety of kitchen cabinets styles and colors. Are you more contmporary? Looking for something traditional? Or transitional? No matter what your style, Earth Elements can help you find exactly what you've been looking for.

For a beautifully simplistic look, David Bradley Cabinetry (image below) offers an updated take on the classic style for your kitchen. This team brings clean lines and beautiful craftsmanship to another level. Every piece is custom made and held to the highest of standards. Full construction, soft close doors, dovetail drawers and drawer hardware come standard.

Looking for a high-quality cabinet at a competitive price? Crestwood might be for you. From frameless European designs to more traditional options, your finished product will come from one of the country’s most modern woodworking plants with state of the art technology.

Another great option is the made to order Dakota Cabinet line. Expect top quality construction, exceptional finishes, and old world craftsmanship.

Our talented custom cabinetry professionals here at Earth Elements can also help you create your dream kitchen with our own in-house custom cabinetry shop. No matter how big or small the project, we can truly turn your vision into reality. You imagine, we create. 


Color can be used to create a more engaging space, with endless possibilities. Your kitchen cabinet style and color will ultimately set the tone and can utilize a larger palette than most other areas in your home. Creating a comforting atmosphere where friends and family can gather and enjoy each other's company can be done with just the right amount of color in your space. 

White and Light

You simply can't go wrong here. The brightest color in the palette brings a fresh and clean feel to your kitchen. As one of the top 5 most coveted kitchen designs, white kitchens offer the best of both worlds. Coordinating colors is a breeze because everything looks great when paired with white. And, if you ever decide to sell your home, your new white kitchen will bring the best marketability. Bentwood cabinets offers some wonderfully clean and bright looks, like the transitional look pictured below. 

Gray Sophistication

Gray tones are here to stay. Popularity has been soaring for this hue with no end in sight. The team at Earth Elements can help you design a gorgeous kitchen around this timeless palette. This gorgeous hue is versatile enough to work with any kitchen design including Old World, Modern, and more. If you are working with a smaller space, or limited natural light, you will want to choose a lighter shade to avoid making the space feel smaller. 

Gray also works well with any style of wood tones like the CrestWood collection features. This can be achieved with the perfect shade of gray for your wall cabinets while choosing mahogany cabinetry for your island. If you prefer a more dramatic look, blend a darker shade of gray with ivory within your space. 

Color Pops

Looking for loud? Make a statement with some high gloss bright colors from Northern Contours. Their variety of thermofoils range from glossy to textured grain. Want to know more about the benefits of RTF? Check out our March 2017 Newsletter on Contemporary Kitchen!.

Another way to add interest without a lot of color would be to utilize pattern in veneers. Our custom cabinet shop would love to create something as unique as you. Just ask!
