First up, think about black. There's no color better at creating contrast, especially if your walls, floors or countertops are in lighter shades. Black painted kitchen cabinets can also work for just about any style of kitchen, from midcentury modern to the most tried-and-true traditional.

If black's not in the cards, consider warm browns and beiges for your painted kitchen cabinets. These versatile colors can work with just about any countertops or floors, from dark or light wood to gray and black tile and granite.

Speaking of gray, various shades of gray can add stateliness and sophistication to any style of painted kitchen cabinets.

If a monochromatic look doesn't suit your creative style, think about mixing and matching colors for lower and upper painted kitchen cabinets—blues and yellows work particularly well together.

Finally, add a touch for the artists in the family—use chalkboard paint on one of your lower painted kitchen cabinets, and let the kids draw and color to their hearts' content. And don't be afraid to add the same touch to an upper cabinet so Mom and Dad can keep lists or calendars and post notes. And draw and color, of course.
