I feel like I am always telling our customers about painting kitchen cabinets white because I feel that it is just such an easy and economical way to upgrade the look of their home. You would be surprised at just how much switching kitchen cabinet paint colors can transform not only the kitchen, but the rest of the living area. Before we started the remodel project in here, this kitchen was very traditional in style with dark cherry cabinets, travertine floors, and beige granite countertops. Because we knew that the homeowner really wanted a marble island, we told them that painting cabinets white would save a lot of money, but still give them than contemporary look they were looking for.
One of the most popular home interiors trends this year is painting kitchen cabinets white, which is something anyone can do. This is our freshly painted kitchen, which we recently completed. Everything looks clean and shiny, and we just adore it. We added a gray marble top to the kitchen island to offset the white cabinets and ceilings, and pairs well with the dark hardwood flooring. Painting kitchen cabinets is an easier task than you might imagine, and one that our entire family enjoyed. White matches anything, so this simple style change is an affordable way to upgrade any space. In our case, the white kitchen chairs and breakfast bar seating was already white, so we were working within a color palette that was partially in place. And white cabinets add the illusion of space, so even if your kitchen is smaller than ours, it can be a good way to make a small room feel spacious and open.
I am so thrilled with the effect that painting kitchen cabinets white had on the look of our farmhouse kitchen. Before it was definitely a rustic country kitchen, but I wanted to infuse the space with glamour and make it feel more high end (without spending a ton of money of course). We thought that white would be the best paint for cabinets because it would make the space look more modern while still retaining the underlying traditional style that our house innately has. Marble seemed like the perfect accent to the crisp white and we decided to keep the beautiful stained plank flooring and beams. After seeing how the design turned out, I am a huge advocate for painting cabinets. Don't worry about what kind of paint to use on kitchen cabinets, just find the shade that goes with the overall ambience you want to create and make sure to prep the surface of your units very well.
I am a strong believer that painting kitchen cabinets white offers an amazing solution to any style home if you are trying to upgrade your style without spending a ton of money. In my opinion, the best kitchen cabinets are ones that can withstand the changes in trends and popular styles over the years. All-white is one of those looks that never seems to fade away, always remains current and desirable among buyers. So if you are considering painting kitchen cabinets ideas, definitely focus your search on simple white designs like this that you can slightly modify with different decorative accents and fixtures as trends change over the years. Create a fantastic foundation that will appeal to a wide audience and then make it your own with the smaller details.
Well painting kitchen cabinets white has been on my "honey-do list" for ages now, and I finally did it! Although the process was a bit of an ordeal between the sanding and priming and everything, I am truly amazed at the difference that changing the cabinet paint colors had in the room. I feel like we have a brand new home and all I did was throw a coat of paint over our previous wood units (the wood matched the island). I will say that it is very helpful to do you research before starting on a project like this because there is definitely a technique to it. All white kitchen cabinets are not created equal, and they can look very amateur if you don't take the time to sand, prime and prep very well before actually applying your paint.
I had been grappling with the idea of painting kitchen cabinets white for years before I finally took the plunge and went for it last month. Much to my relief, I absolutely love the finish look and wish that I had swapped out our kitchen cabinet colors years and years ago. Just by covering up the dark cherry stain that we used to have, I feel like the kitchen is instantly larger and more open. The space looks like I completely gutted it and added brand new everything (other than the new marble countertops), but all I did was change the paint color. I consulted our local paint specialist to figure out the best paint for kitchen cabinets that would be easy enough to work with for an amateur like me. They suggested Benjamin Moore kitchen paint and, even though the price initially scared me, I am so glad that we went with that formula. It was so easy to apply of the dark stain and has held up well so far.
