Choosing paint colors to refinish your cabinets can be a time-consuming and frustrating process when there are so many shades to choose from. The good news is that kitchens are rife with color opportunities
When it comes to kitchens, white, gray, blue, red, yellow, and green really shine. Each of these shades can do something different for the room, but they all help create a warm and welcoming space.
Warmer colors such as red are believed to stimulate the appetite and are an excellent option for kitchens. Red is incredibly versatile and there are multiple shades that would really pop in a kitchen, either on the cabinets or the walls.
White Kitchens Feel Cleaner
Most people start their days in their kitchens, and white can really energize a room. It feels fresh and clean, and an all-white kitchen will really wake you up the minute you step in it. You can also have more fun with your countertops and backsplash in an all-white kitchen and choose brighter colors or designs for those.
The Rising Popularity of Gray
Gray is a neutral that's been taking center stage lately in many homes. It often gets categorized as being too cold, but with the right shade, it can work wonders in a kitchen. Best of all, it pairs beautifully with a wide array of other colors and is the perfect base to paint your cabinets.
Blue is another color that works well on kitchen cabinets. When lighter shades of blue are used, they can create a crisp, clean look. Blue is an invigorating color. Dark blues also work well on kitchen cabinets, but it's important to accent the rest of the room with hints of white, gray or other neutral tones to keep it from feeling too intense and dark.
Classic, Happy Yellow
Like a ray of sunshine, yellow can instantly brighten up a room. Also believed to make people hungry, yellow has a soothing quality and will instantly make people feel calm and happy in your kitchen. A good option for small spaces, yellow can make rooms feel bigger and brighter, and it pairs well with white and gray accents.
Organic, Natural Elements Spells Green
Green is also a smart shade to use on kitchen cabinets. There are many different shades to choose from including mint and apple green, which pair nicely with white and wood accents. If you're willing to be more adventurous, try a rich emerald green. A striking shade, it can add a jolt of energy to the kitchen when used on cabinets.
These days, instead of going the traditional route with plain wood cabinets on the top and bottom, interior designers and homeowners are choosing to use a double dose of paint color with two-tone kitchens.
