How To Do Colored Cabinets Right

By Rebecca Wardon, Interior Design Manager

It’s no secret that colored cabinets are very much in. If you’ve read any of our previous blogs, you’ll know that we’re very much on board. (And if you haven’t read any of our previous blogs, what are you waiting for?) Here are some pointers on how to get the most out of this trend.


Can’t make up your mind on a single color? Another great play on the colored cabinet trend is the two-tone style. Our 2020 flagship home is a great example of this look in action.

But be careful. If you want to two-tone, make sure those two tones work together. Sticking to similar colors is a great idea, but if those colors are too similar, the look is lost. Make sure you choose distinct enough colors to really make your cabinets stand out. 


Worried about being too bold? Maybe colored cabinets in the kitchen aren’t right for you. But what about the bathroom? The bathroom is much smaller and removed from other parts of the home, making it the perfect place to try out a unique style. 

It’s a lot easier to be daring with a powder room, a kid’s bathroom, or your own master bath. Plus, when it’s time to update again down the road, it’s a lot easier to change, too.


Colored cabinets can be a striking look, so make sure that they’re the real star of your design. For instance, if you’re going with colored cabinets, tone down the backsplash and counters. Remember, it’s about compliment, not competition.

If you’re looking to get colored cabinets in your kitchen or bathroom, don’t miss out on this month's promotion. Agree to build by April 30 and receive a free design upgrade of painted cabinets. Connect with us to learn more.
  • When we rightsized from our home of 43 years to a Bielinski Condo in Bay Pointe, our New Home Consultant answered all of our questions and communicated with us the entire way. We’re fully enjoying our beautiful new home and the condo community.
    John and Jean Jones
  • I’ve been so impressed and completely satisfied with the entire Bielinski building experience. From the initial sale and throughout the construction process I have appreciated Bielinski’s professionalism, craftsmanship, and follow-through.
    Heidi Hamilton
  • We are extremely happy with our new Bielinski Condo. It’s well-built and full of all the features we wanted in our home.
    Deborah and Brian Blackney
  • We chose Bielinski because they are a family-owned business and have been building in the Pewaukee area for a long time. The Clemont floor plan is just perfect for all of our family events and Packer parties.
    Bob and Darla Landgren
  • We couldn’t be happier with our new home! The entire process was fantastic. Everyone was so responsive and quick to help. Bielinski’s knowledge of the industry was invaluable. We recommend Bielinski to anyone looking for their next home.
    Mike and Kristin Smith
  • We had a really good experience with Bielinski from start to finish. Everyone was responsive and reliable. Now we are enjoying life in our new home.
    Peter Holzwart and Therese Gaynor-Holzwart
  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.

  • We have just purchased our third Bielinski Home in the last 22 years, a Bielinski condo. We have found that Bielinski Homes builds quality homes for fair prices. The craftsmanship of construction and finishing is exceptional, plus they make the buying and building process easy with great customer experience. We would strongly recommend a Bielinski Home.
    Jerald and Jeanne Filut
  • We absolutely loved working with Bielinski Homes — the kindness and knowledge they shared sold us on wanting to move to our new neighborhood. We were worried about moving. But we had no doubts in our minds after speaking with our New Home Consultant about the community and the neighbors. We couldn’t be happier with our new home and new neighborhood.
