We’ve pulled together some of our favorite navy kitchen cabinet looks to inspire your next home remodeling project. See which examples from previous J&J kitchen jobs and contemporary homes spark your enthusiasm!
Got a window with a view? Navy kitchen cabinets are the perfect way to enhance those blue skies just outside! Open shelving near the window ensures that the corner doesn’t feel cramped, while fun inset cabinet hardware adds just the right amount of interest to this tidy room. Check out the special storage areas and cabinet-top drawers – a great way to make the most out of an upgraded kitchen.
This example from Bertch Cabinets has a clean, crisp, airy quality. A center island in Cobalt looks sensational with natural wood finish floors and counter stools. Its furniture baseboard trim elevates the seating area. An abundance of simple Shaker cabinet fronts are the perfect addition to the space. They keep it all organized and sleek – and will never look dated.
A deeper shade of blue wows up a large open kitchen plan. The center work island is clearly where the action takes place, and it’s presented in showcase style. With slightly mismatched pendant lights that complement the glass front cabinets, a big work sink, and a luscious dark navy cabinet base, it’s beautiful both in use – and not.
Mixing up cabinet colors is a great look to try in a renovated kitchen. Case in point: This well-designed space with a number of upgraded details. Check out those extra-large cove crown molding accents over the range! The nautical blue of the island’s cabinets is brought out with coordinating shades. Subway tiles on the backsplash, a splash of cornflower blue on the walls, the sweet accessories on the custom shelf, and matching chair cushions complete the look.
Woodharbor Cabinets presents a different take with their Hale Navy color, used with stainless steel appliances and coordinating hardware. Although the white granite countertops and subway tile make for an open feel, the cabinet colors add a bit of warmth and coziness to this kitchen. Medium-height crown molding helps carry the shade throughout, where it coordinates with the floral print roman shades over the sink.
Playing with different shades created this bit of blue heaven! White is a popular counterpart for navy kitchen cabinets, but leaning into the color is powerful. Swapping out chairs or decor can create a portfolio of looks, while white granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and whitewashed floor treatment add a solid neutral base. Modern kitchen design doesn’t have to be boring!
A long galley-style kitchen becomes elegant with regal blue cabinets on one side. Built-in pantries, a library ladder for reaching upper storage, and posh brass hardware create a memorable room. Airy seating choices, use of island legs, and crown molding help add height and make the narrow space feel much more spacious.
In our cover photo, you saw another view of this custom kitchen. This J&J remodeling project features Woodharbor’s Breeze cabinets with slab front drawers, a number of custom options to increase storage, and cove-style crown molding. The homeowners added a kick of color to the island, using Hale Navy. White subway tiles and glass cabinet fronts maximize the ceiling height.
Speaking of J&J custom kitchens, feast your eyes on this recent remodeling project featuring an oversized island, again in Hale Navy. We love how the subtle hint of blue carries over into the gorgeous, iridescent tile of the backsplash.
Love the rustic furniture and coordinating wall trim in this efficient navy kitchen? This is a look you can easily add to your own kitchen updates. Beyond the charming accents of gauzy window coverings, oversized cabinet hardware, and potted herbs, there’s simply great design. Plenty of well-designed storage in the lower cabinets keeps the light flowing and the work area clear.
A little zoom in on some details lets us see the beauty of navy kitchen cabinets with other surfaces. Here, the gray veining in the marble countertops picks up the cool hue of the surrounding cabinetry and the cabinet pulls. Likewise, a soft robin’s egg blue on the tile backsplash is a light contrast. Who knew blue could be so neutral?
