Mismatched cabinets and kitchen islands have grown popular in Mid-Atlantic home remodels. But is the trend meant to last? Will you still love your colored kitchen cabinets years from now? Or will they look tacky once their popularity fades? Here’s our take on the matter.
The Colored Kitchen Cabinets Trend
While a kitchen island that complements the cabinetry can offer its own appeal, many homeowners find it too “matchy-matchy,” and in some cases maybe even a bit dull, for their tastes. By choosing a mismatched island with colored kitchen cabinets of opposing shades, you can give your space a pop of color that’s unique without going over the top. Whether that means a solid black kitchen island with wooden cabinets or an island in a blue or green shade against white cabinetry, it’s easy to experiment with this trend to find a look that is your own. You can choose to go as contemporary or traditional as you desire!
The examples below show a number of ways you can incorporate mismatched kitchen islands and cabinetry into your room design, in both classic style kitchens and more modern, colorful ones.
As you can see, colored kitchen islands in opposing shades as your cabinets can be used in more ways than one. Whether you want to break up a monochromic room design or give your room contemporary flair with bolder colors, the choice is yours!

Mismatched kitchen islands and cabinetry are still very successful in classic shades of black, white, and wooden tones.
