10 Best Colors for Kitchen Cabinet Painting in Fort Collins
Is your kitchen looking more and more drab thanks to chipped and dreary cabinets? Approaching a kitchen update means messes, costs and inconveniences. While kitchen updates will always be inconvenient and messy, the costs can be reduced significantly by updating the cabinets with paint. Here are the 10 best colors for kitchen cabinet painting in Fort Collins to consider.
Painting cabinets takes specialized training to ensure the cabinets stand up to repeated touches and slams from the family getting late night snacks. Our teams have remodeled many kitchens in the Fort Collins area. Since the cabinets are a major focal feature in the room, changing the color of them can completely change the room. Adding in new paint on what little wall is left can change the entire room for a fraction of the price. Now let’s pick colors.
Cool White: Sherwin-Williams Snowbound SW 7004
Choose this color for a kitchen that has a lot of color in other areas. For example, with a colorful counter top, appliances or walls, choosing a white color for the cabinets is perfect. This particular shade is a crisp and clean white with cool undertones. It’s great in modern interiors to update old wood.
Dark Gray: Sherwin-Williams Web Gray SW 7075
Gray is making its trendy debut in cabinets with this dark gray color. If you’re torn between the black and white neutrals, mix them. Use this solid neutral that will work in modern or traditional kitchens. Because it’s a mid-range color, it reads as neutral allowing you to choose a statement color to go with it, or allow it to be the statement. Either will work great in a kitchen. The only caveat is to avoid stainless appliances or you could end up with an industrial feeling room.
Navy Blue: Sherwin-Williams Salty Dog SW 9177
While not as often used lately, navy is a popular and regal choice that will never go out of style. Pair the color with warm-toned metals like copper or brass and you’ll have a galley worthy of the best tall ships. Use white and gold to warm the room.
Green: The Spruce Best Home Matcha SPR-07
Nature draws us in and comforts the soul, so why not include it in your kitchen with a bright, natural green? This particular muted green with yellow undertones warms the room while giving you the feeling of picnicking on a plain of daisies. Try adding terracotta floor tile for a Mexico hideaway kitchen.
Sage Green: Farrow & Ball Pigeon No. 25
Again, nature comes indoors with this gray green. It’s a neutral color of gray with a hint of green inspired by light sage tree branches. This color will work across a wide range of styles in the kitchen with any appliance colors you have in place. Pair it with black or silver handles for a crisp, clean feeling.
Warm White: Benjamin Moore Decorator’s White CC-20
Bright white can go all wrong on cabinets. The color is overwhelming, sterile and frankly hurts your eyes. Choose an almost white that’s warm without going overboard with this Benjamin Moore option. This is the perfect way to spruce cabinets up for your use or in preparation for a home sale. The color is clean with a wide appeal for potential homeowners.
Black: The Spruce Best Home Phantom Black SPR-C16
Go for drama with this chic option. This color has been really successful as a backdrop to a different color door, or a two toned look with lighter cabinets on top and this on the bottom. When used for cabinets that include a kitchen island, this color is particularly adept at hiding dings and scuff marks from feisty kids and pets.
Beige: Magnolia Home Gatherings
Beige doesn’t have to be boring. Give your kitchen the chance to shine with warm beige cabinets. The room will take on a jolly glow with this color, yet no one will be able to put their finger on where it’s coming from. It’s equally appealing with loads of natural light or a few halogen bulbs. The color does a wonderful job hiding imperfections within the cabinets as well.
Charcoal Black: PPG Black Flame PPG1043-7
This color will have everyone asking is it blue or is it black. Either choice is right! Use this dark jeans inspired color to incorporate color into a kitchen. As with your jeans, use brighter colors to warm up the base. Try amber or gold handles and pops around the room. Dark colors in cabinetry are making a statement in homes across Fort Collins, so jump on the train now.
True White: Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace OC-65
White cabinets can be illusive. Undertones and lighting in the kitchen all play into white looking pristine. Choose Chantilly Lace to get the best white for our area. It works with the overly sunny days without blinding those in your kitchen. As the perfect white, it’s a fool-proof choice to apply to your cabinets. It’s particularly set off with brights or darks on the counter.
