Kitchen Cabinets and Color

When you think about kitchen cabinets, do you mostly think about the color of the wood, such as deep mahogany, lighter oak, or medium pine? While these wood-stained cabinets are beautiful, there is a trend catching on in which you may also want to consider – painting your kitchen cabinets! Whether you like light, medium, or dark, distinguishing your kitchen cabinets with your favorite hue opens up a whole realm of possibilities. Let’s take a closer look at kitchen cabinets and color.

 

Benefits of Painting vs. Remodelling

The price of removing and replacing existing cabinetry can be cost prohibitive for many people who just want to give their kitchen a little facelift. Painting kitchen cabinets that may be dated, dark, or dingy could be a fantastic way to accomplish a “redo” without breaking the bank. In addition, there are minimal disruptions when it comes to painting instead of tearing out the cabinets and starting from scratch.

Beyond White

For homeowners considering painting their cabinetry over remodelling the entire space, try to think beyond white. There are so many colors to choose from that can complement your overall design, such as slate grey, green, blue, or even a sunny yellow. While white matches with everything and has a clean, crisp appearance, consider also that it will need to be cleaned periodically due to smudges, dirty fingers, and food messes.

Monochromatic or a Pop of Color

Depending upon your personality and the colors that you hope to use to decorate, you have a choice. You may want to choose one color to paint the cabinets, or go for a pop of color on the top or bottom. If you are looking for clean lines and a look that is more contemporary, monochromatic may be the way to go. On the other hand, if you want something cozier, maybe choose two colors that coordinate and compliment each other for your cabinets.
