Paint Colors for Kitchen Cabinets
The range of paint colors for kitchen cabinets can seem overwhelming at first, but by keeping a few key style tips in mind, you're sure to pick the perfect hue for your kitchen.
Firstly, consider letting the design style of the kitchen be your guide. In general, classic, traditional kitchen designs benefit most from classic, traditional kitchen cabinet paint colors, like creams and whites. Shaker, Arts and Crafts and classic-style kitchen cabinets will all look great with bright whites or subdued creams. These light base tones will allow you to experiment with pops of color and contrast elsewhere in the kitchen, like appliances, hardware and countertops.
For more contemporary or modern designs, bright colors and contrasting tones are much more common. Vibrant reds, gentle greens and even fluorescent yellows turn up in a lot of modern kitchen cabinet designs, with reds and fluorescents particularly popular in retro-style kitchens.
Whether your kitchen style is modern, traditional or something in between, there are some classic paint colors for kitchen cabinets that will likely work great. Black can be a great choice, particularly if you're looking to create a contrast with a primarily light-colored design. Similarly, grays and dark browns for kitchen cabinet paint colors can help create visual contrast with light-colored kitchen designs.
