The kitchen is an important focal point in the home, it is the area where people gather most for home cooked meals with family members. The kitchen should look like a welcoming place in our home. Choosing what colors to paint your kitchen or kitchen cabinets can be difficult as there are several aspects that have to be taken into account, such as the cohesiveness of the walls, cabinets, countertops, backsplash, and fixtures. When evaluating what colors to paint your kitchen and cabinets, it is important to analyze how open and large the kitchen is or if it is small and more confined. Painting a small kitchen with minimal light, lighter colors will brighten and make it look more spacious. While when painting a larger kitchen with more light, darker color options can be explored.
Contrast is another key design tool when looking at what colors to paint kitchen cabinets. Most countertop designs are lighter than the cabinets, and adding a little contrast will create an aesthetically pleasing look. To tie kitchen cabinet colors together within a kitchen, similar paint colors can be used in the backsplash design to unite the chosen palette together. Another item to keep in mind are countertops. Are they granite, quartz, or marble? If the countertops are not going to be changed after painting the kitchen and cabinets, one should be mindful of its current color and material, and whether it will clash or mesh with the chosen colors.
Painting kitchen cabinets is tedious, detailed work and typically a professional should be hired for this. At City Zen Painting our team is skilled in painting kitchen cabinets with either a spray or brush, and like always they go above and beyond to make sure our customers are more than satisfied.
