RED KITCHEN CABINETS
A red wall in the kitchen provides energy and a good mood. In addition, the color red is trendy for kitchen utensils and accessories, so it is not surprising that red kitchen fronts are common. In the following, we will show you the effect of red kitchen cabinets and whether a red kitchen is the right option for you.

SPACE AND MOOD: WHAT EFFECT DO RED TONES CREATE IN KITCHEN CABINETS DESIGN?
Red is not just the color of love. It also stands for fire and everything that wants to draw attention. The “signal color” red has a refreshing and warm effect, promotes concentration, and increases appetite. Using the strongest of all colors undoubtedly requires a bit of courage, while it pays off with skillful usage in the kitchen. But be careful: dark, intense red can be oppressive or cramped in small kitchens without suitable light sources. Bright red or pink tones prove to be an alternative.
In the kitchen, red can be combined in so many different ways: the same shades of color, fading down with other more subtle colors or combining powerfully with black.
Red kitchen cabinets in key points:
- Dominant hue
- Visually reducing
- Country house to modern: Versatile shade suitable for all styles
- Very popular in kitchen appliances
- Combines well with white, neutral tones, and wood
WHICH SHADE OF RED IS SUITABLE FOR WHICH STYLE OF RED KITCHEN CABINET?
Red kitchen cabinets are not tied to one kitchen style. There is a trend that specific red colors are better suitable for certain kitchen styles than others:
Dark shades of red for the country house style: Country house kitchens are often colored incredibly dark red. In the American country kitchen style, lacquered wooden fronts often shine in dark tones such as Bordeaux or wine red. Matching with solid wood floorboards or parquet ensure even more comfort in the kitchen.
Intense red or delicate pink for the retro style: Retro-style kitchens often match bright red kitchen fronts. Pink kitchens are also possible. Floors with a black and white checkerboard pattern highlight the charm of a nostalgic kitchen in red.
Bright and cool red tones for modern kitchens: bright chili red and cherry red or cool tones such as pink and magenta red are almost exclusively found in modern kitchens and match with matte red kitchen fronts and anti-touch coating with high-gloss kitchen fronts. Floors in shades of gray and white, whether tile, laminate, or vinyl, create a neutral contrast.
HOW CAN THE COLOR RED BE COMBINED WELL WITH THE KITCHEN CABINETS?
Since red is very dominant, fewer other colors should be used. Otherwise, a “visual chaos” will quickly develop. However, you can’t do anything wrong if you combine red tones with white and gray tones, as these colors are not visually intrusive. Thanks to the interplay of red kitchen fronts and white or grey fronts, the kitchen looks more discreet, especially if you choose matte kitchen fronts.
Combining with green, the complementary color of red provides exciting but visually harmonious effects, for example, in the form of a toaster or a colored food processor. Red kitchen cabinets can also be complemented perfectly with black kitchen utensils or shelves.
All types of wood, such as oak or beech, can be used as a worktop for red kitchen cabinets. They create a more natural feeling in the kitchen, weakening the signal effect of red. The wood tone should not be too red. Otherwise, the red tones of the kitchen cabinet and worktop will compete with each other. Materials such as stainless steel, natural stone, or ceramics in gray tones, on the other hand, create an excellent balance with red kitchen fronts.
RED KITCHEN CABINETS DESIGN IDEAS: FROM RUST RED TO PINK
In the kitchen with an adjacent dining table, a harmonious combination of colors and good lighting creates a friendly atmosphere. The colored kitchen in matte rust red, combined with the worktop and back wall in oak Sierra imitation, offers enough space and is also suitable as a family kitchen with its fresh, modern look. Highlight: the fronts are anti-fingerprint coated.
Thanks to its successful color combination, the kitchen with a cooking island looks warm, cozy, and youthful. Matte kitchen fronts in henna red are combined with shelves and a worktop in a light holm oak wood surface. A black sink provides modern color contrast.
The melamine resin-coated kitchen with cooking island and cleverly integrated seating shine in modern colors. The wall cupboards and open shelves were designed in the pink shade of lavender, the other fronts in light platinum gray, and the worktop, seat, and wall paneling in light wood decor.
Kitchen island with copper-red glass worktop and kitchen rear wall: The fact that the worktop and rear wall in copper color is combined with black kitchen fronts intensifies the color effect of the red tone. The copper-red comes into focus. The matte satin glass surface is pleasant to the eye.
Red kitchen planning without handles: as the center of modern kitchen cabinets, the cooking island is further emphasized by its color. In bright red, it draws everyone’s attention. The other cabinets in the colored kitchen are white and remain discreet in the background.
Nostalgic American-style country house kitchen: in the kitchen with a cooking island and classic country house style elements, red in the shade of rosehip provides vitality. The tall cupboards and individual drawers are painted in matte lacquer red, and the kitchen island is in a subtle grey shade of lava, all of which create a beautiful visual frame through color.
