Cabinet Painting And Refinishing
Cabinet painting or refinishing is a project that many homeowners take on when they feel like their kitchen needs a facelift. Painter1 in Austin are the expert residential cabinet painters here to provide a simple solution to update your kitchen without breaking the bank. You’ll be impressed with how different your kitchen looks when you update the cabinets!
Choosing A Color
When choosing a color for your kitchen cabinets, the first style element to consider is staining vs. solid paint color. If you have natural wood cabinets, covering them up with paint may not be the best idea. Staining highlights the beauty of the wood grain and protects the natural material.
If you want to stain, there are still various tones you can choose from. Darker stains, in greys and black, make a dramatic statement while still preserving the beauty of the wood. Stains also come in various textures, from matte to gloss. Fitted with new hardware, your cabinets will stand out!
If your cabinets are not solid wood, or you are not so partial to wood grain, solid paint is the way to go. Paint gives you more color options, but there are still a few things to consider before making a choice.
The Size of Your KitchenConsidering how much space you have available can help you decide between lighter or darker palettes. Smaller kitchens do best with lighter color palettes, so choose neutral tones in a small space. Darker color palettes do well in larger kitchens with abundant light, so consider earthy tones or sophisticated blacks and greys for your cabinets.
Your Wall ColorAre you going to paint your walls as well? If not, consider the color your walls currently are, and make sure you don’t choose a cabinet color that clashes. If you have white or neutral walls, your choices for cabinet color are wide open. If you have red walls or another bold color, you’ll have to be more careful with your cabinet color choice.
Creating ContrastDark walls, light cabinets and light walls, dark cabinets are always a safe bet. The contrast between light and dark tones creates a nice balance, establishing a comfortable kitchen space.
Are You Selling?While you may love the idea of bright yellow cabinets, future buyers may not. If kitchen cabinet painting is just an item to check off your pre-sale list of home renovations, go with a neutral palette.
