Sherwin Williams said they chose Evergreen Fog because it “is a versatile and calming hue, a chameleon color of gorgeous green-meets-gray, with just a bit of blue. It’s a simple but sophisticated wash of beautiful, organic color for spaces that crave a subtle yet stunning statement shade.” Wow! Sounds amazing. But how will you use it in your kitchen, bathroom, laundry, or home office?
Because it is a subtle hue, it complements most colors, whether contrasting darks, or lighter creams. Be careful, though, you don’t want to choose a cabinet color that will look washed out. Here’s some ideas to consider…
First of all, when choosing your cabinet colors, consider your space. Is it a dark space that needs brightening? Does sunlight flood the room so that contrasting darker colors should be used. Of course, you want to think about color, texture, style of cabinets, hardware, lighting and appliances.
While that might sound like a daunting task, it really is very easy if you have a good eye for design and color. If not, you no doubt have friends that do, and, let’s face it, people love to provide their design advice when asked. So, do you research, search for ideas online, and make a scrapbook of the ideas you like. Kitchen design magazines are great because you can cut out the pieces you like and hold them together to see if everything fits.
Remember, when designing your kitchen, it is important to make sure you feel comfortable. The 2022 Color of the Year already checks that box, so now it is up to you to fill in the rest of your kitchen palette.

Here are a couple of cabinet colors we like. But, the choices are many.
There you have it! Be ready for 2022 remodel or new design for your kitchen by searching for cabinet colors, style, and profiles now. You will be way ahead of the game, and have many years of tranquil cooking or other activities.
