It's time to embrace beige again, this trend is in full force and not going anywhere.

If you are a fan of neutral spaces, beige or cream kitchen cabinets are a beautiful off-white shade to add to your home’s colour pallet. Cream cabinets are light and warm, welcoming and elegant.

If you’re scared to commit to beige, let us talk you into it, because these ideas for modern cream kitchen cabinets are from some seriously talented designers.

First of all,

Is cream still a good colour for kitchen cabinets?

Cream, beige, taupe, and other off-white shades are good colours for kitchen cabinets if you enjoy warm colour pallets. These shades are not as contrasting as white, nor do they reflect light as much. They can feel contemporary or traditional, and can be just as versatile as white.

And to top it off, cream cabinets don’t show dirt as much as white cabinets do. Sounds good to us!

Still not convinced?

These cream islands contrast the dark cabinetry and compliment the textured ceiling.

Are cream cabinets still in style?

Cream cabinets are a huge trend right now. Don’t picture builder beige, rather envision casual elegance. As the all-white kitchen starts to take a back seat to more transitional kitchens, beige and cream kitchen cabinets are stepping up!

They are a lovely option to add warmth and a calm, spa like vibe to your home. That is why we have been seeing designers choose cream colored kitchens for their clients.

Feature range hoods are another design trend that we love. Large, statement range hoods create a beautiful focal point and modernize cream colored cabinets.

Beige wood cabinets paired with metal and stone finishes feel contemporary.

Try Warm Wood Kitchen Cabinets

If you are looking for a modern warm and inviting atmosphere, check out these flat panel wood kitchen cabinets. They can run cream or beige, depending on the finish and provide an organic look instead of the polished look of painted cabinets.

These versatile cabinets can easily be styled for a mid-century kitchen.

Or pair really well with modern white walls and subway tile backsplash.

Beige walls and white countertops look great with these light tone cabinets for a rustic leaning space. (Check out that triangle window!)

Combine Trends with Brushed Bronze

Gold accents and cream cabinets are both huge trends right now, so why not combine them? Stunning. Cream cabinets were made for marble countertops and brushed bronze finishes: lighting fixtures, cabinet pulls, and faucet.

Both these kitchens feature gold/brushed bronze accents. The warm cabinet colour and the warm bronze compliment each other for a timeless kitchen.

Cream Shaker Cabinets with Black Accents

Just like white, cream cabinets look lovely with black accents. The stark contrast draws the eye and is a modern choice for your kitchen. Shaker style cabinets are a trendy door style that modernize beige and cream kitchen cabinets.

Black window trim adds visual interest to this serene space. Floor to ceiling shaker style cabinets provide ample storage, without adding visual weight.

Accent cabinets are a great way to segment working space in a kitchen. This black accent cabinet is a stunning way to define the sink area from the rest of the room.

Contemporary Wood and Cream Colored Kitchen Cabinets

Wood finished with a light stain feels organic and fresh. You can make wood cabinets the focal point of the kitchen, or opt for a feature island. Creamy wall colours or cream wall cabinets look stunning next to light wood cabinets.

Wood can be stained a variety of beige, taupe, or cream shades.

Paring cream cabinets with a light wood island is a great backdrop for dark woods like this flooring.

Want these designs for your kitchen?

This hot trend emerging in 2023 is moving into 2024 as well. Cream and beige cabinets paired with wood accents, natural minerals, bright white walls, warm tones, and brass finishes create a stunning modern kitchen.
