Professional Cabinet Painting Colors for Top Results
Kitchen cabinets are the main architectural element in the room. That being said, if they are out of date or suffering from cracks and chips, your room can quickly look dilapidated and old. Kitchen updates are always messy and inconvenient but updating cabinets doesn’t necessarily mean putting in new ones. Having custom made cabinets created for your kitchen can be very pricey. Reduce the costs by having professional cabinet painting done instead.
Changes in the paint manufacturing processes have allowed painters to successfully change the color of cabinets. These high touch, high impact areas are especially hard to paint and keep looking good for a long period of time. With proper preparation, the cabinets can look brand new and last. Here are some color ideas to get you started.
Cool White: Sherwin-Williams Snowbound SW 7004
If your kitchen has a lot of colors in other areas, white cabinets might be in order. Choose this cool white color to add a crisp and clean feeling in the colors. Using white to update wooden colors is a great way to make old wood look new again.
Dark Gray: Sherwin-Williams Web Gray SW 7075
Gray is trendy when it comes to exteriors, interiors and now cabinets. The most common cabinets are black or white, if you are torn, combine the two. This color works well in modern or traditional kitchens. As a mid-range color, it looks neutral and allows you to pick a statement color in another area of the room. Avoid pairing this color with stainless steel appliances, or you could end up with an industrial feeling room.
Navy Blue: Sherwin-Williams Salty Dog SW 9177
Another way to use color as a neutral is to incorporate navy blue on the cabinets. This is a regal and popular choice that exudes style. Use warm toned metals like copper or brass to create a galley worthy of a tall ship. Pair cream and warm in to warm the somewhat cool color.
