Kitchen Cabinets: Picking the Perfect Shade
Accent walls, colorful furniture, and unique art pieces can all make a home feel refreshed and new again—and painted kitchen cabinets are no different. Painting your cabinets a new color can help make your kitchen look new and exciting, like remodeling without the actual need to remodel! While the classic all-white kitchen is iconic, many other colors are often overlooked that could bring bold, brilliant styles to a part of your home. Mike’s Quality Painting in Albuquerque can help you bring a dash of color to your kitchen, and help make your home feel like new again with our professional cabinet painting services.
How to Find the Right Color for Your Cabinets
Figuring out what color to paint your cabinets may seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be! There are many indicators in your kitchen that can determine which colors will work for you. One of the best ways to do this is by looking at your kitchen’s backsplash or countertops. If these have mostly warmer tones like creams, yellows, beiges, browns, and even warm whites, then your kitchen could benefit from painting your cabinets with the same or similar warmer colors. Meanwhile, if your kitchen has predominantly cooler tones, you’ll want to look into a cooler color for your kitchen cabinets. These colors can include blues and greens, purples, greys, and whites of the same underlying colors. Of course a classic white will also do well with a cooler backsplash and countertops. Finally, if you have a mixture of both warm and cool tones in your kitchen, you have more choices with either warmer or cooler colors. If you’ve decided on going with a shade of white, make sure it matches whatever tone is most present in the kitchen, whether that’s warmer or cooler.
Make It Your Own
Even though you may want to match your cabinets in a way that is traditionally pleasing to the eye and matches the tones of your backsplash and countertops, it’s always fun to be bold and choose a color that you enjoy. Kitchens can easily be turned into your home’s eye-catching centerpiece. Choose a bold color like an aqua, red, or other bright color in order to accent your kitchen’s cabinets against more neutral colors like whites. There are also ways to keep your kitchen cabinets more neutral by using a color that catches the eye, like light greys, or greys with blue undertones. These colors pair well with warm and cool tones as well, so it looks good in many kitchens. Why not experiment with multiple colors and choose a two-toned option for your cabinets? You can even make them contrasting colors to add an extra pop! And of course, who can forget classic blues, which make your kitchen feel chic and match not only your countertops, but with the appliances in the kitchen as well!
