I would be so grateful if there are any contractors on here that could weigh in on what kind of paint to use on kitchen cabinets of this style. We have just about the same design, but they are a wood finish instead of paint. I know that there are a lot of nooks and crannies that will need to be painted without bubbling or drips, so I am trying to get the best paint for kitchen cabinets no matter how much is costs. In my opinion, the key to these looks is how high end the kitchen design is. So if I have a crappy paint job what is the point, you know? We have pretty much decided on the same kitchen cabinet paint colors that they did here -- a soft dove grey for the cabinetry and a darker contrasting shade for the island. I have heard a lot of good things about Benjamin Moore, is that would you would recommend as well?
I would love some advice on what kind of paint to use on kitchen cabinets because I would really like to recreate this kitchen in our home. After doing quite a bit of research over the past few weeks, painting kitchen cabinets seems like a pretty easy project in general, I am just not quite sure on the best materials for the job. As with any type of home design project, I assume that the result is often only as good as the materials you use to get there. The last thing I want is for our cabinets to look obviously DIY painted and cheap -- I really want our home to look high end and professionally designed, even if I know that we did it all ourselves. Our cabinets are a natural oak color and basically shaped like these here. With that being said, does anybody have advice on the best paint for cabinets if we are going to be painting them a light blue like this?
Can anybody on here tell me what kind of paint to use on kitchen cabinets if you want to paint them a super dark color like this rich black? I really do think that the home that we just moved into has the best kitchen cabinets as far as all of the detail work on them and the fact that they were custom fit to our home, but I am just not loving the plain white finish. I absolutely love the drama and whimsy of this all black kitchen and would love to recreate it as best I can with our existing units. From what I can tell from my research, repainting kitchen cabinets does not have to be a very hard process. You just have to make sure that the materials you use are high quality and that you leave enough time between coats. Patience is definitely going to be the key to the success of this project, well and the paint of course.
It took me quite some time to figure out what kind of paint to use on kitchen cabinets but, after all of my research and actually going through the painting process myself, I am going to say that Benjamin Moore is definitely the winner. Painting kitchen cabinets white does not seem like a particularly challenging project -- that is until you have dark cherry cabinets that you have decided to strip and paint yourself haha. No matter how much I sanded and primed those things, the yellowish hue from the cherry just kept bleeding through. That is until I bought an oil based paint from Benjamin Moore. A friend of mine used them for her kitchen paint colors and was happy with the shade range so I decided to give it a try. Thank goodness I did, because the expert at their store helped my with my bleeding problem. Now look at this gorgeous space!
I am trying to identify what kind of paint to use on kitchen cabinets in order to achieve this same whitish, greenish, grey color, but I honestly have no ideas where to even begin. It is so hard to tell from a photo what color this is, especially since I assume these have been retouched. I tend to think that these would be considered green kitchen cabinets, albeit super super light ones. I adore how this subtle color looks against the exposed wood beams on the ceiling as well as the cute metallic mini herringbone tile on the backsplash. It is certainly one of the more unique kitchen paint ideas that I have seen on here, but I really think that it would accent the rest of our home decor perfectly.
Does anybody know what kind of paint to use on kitchen cabinets into order get this bright turquoise shade to show up on currently espresso brown units? I have sanded them down but they are still super dark. I feel like I will have to do a million coats of paint to even achieve the same type of blue kitchen cabinets as this photo. The last time that I was at the paint store I saw something called "primer," but I am not sure if that would even be relevant in this situation or if that is just for walls. Can you tell that I am an amateur? haha. If somebody could direct me to a resource that could help me learn, or if you have any painting kitchen cabinets ideas of your own to remedy this situation, I would certainly be all ears.
