Today I’m singing the blues—Benjamin Moore’s Hale Navy blue, to be exact. This beautiful shade of navy continues to be a favorite amongst designers because of its incredible versatility, especially when it comes to kitchen cabinets (seriously, it goes with everything). Let’s take a look at why this color will work for almost any design and explore some different options for hale navy custom cabinetry. 

Warm or Cool? 

One of the biggest reasons Hale navy is so versatile is because it’s a transitional color. This means it has both warm and cool undertones. Additionally, it will look just as at home paired with nickel and Coventry Gray as it will with brass and White Dove, both listed as hale navy coordinating colors by Benjamin Moore. 

Works with Any Design 

No matter what type of design you’re going for, hale navy will fit right in. Its merits for a modern or transitional kitchen are pretty obvious, but it would also look stunning in a traditional design. Hale navy’s deep, rich jewel tone was inspired by the luxury of England’s royalty during the Victorian Era, so it can be used in a more traditional design without looking out of place.

Design Tips 

Now that we understand why hale navy kitchen cabinets will work for almost anyone, let’s talk about some different design options. If you choose to paint all your kitchen cabinets hale navy, I’d recommend contrasting them with a white countertop and backsplash. Continue the contrast with a light paint color for the walls to keep the room feeling open and bright.  

If committing to all navy cabinets seems too overwhelming, a subtler option is a hale navy accent island paired with a neutral color for the rest of your cabinets. Remember to check out the coordinating color list when going over your options!
