Painting Kitchen Cabinets

Here are several ideas for painting kitchen cabinets, which you can easily put to use, without any worry or hassles.

Keeping it Simple

Out of all the kitchen cabinet painting ideas, keeping the kitchen cabinet extremely simple is one of the best available options. The white color that is parallel to the primer is an excellent solution, as the color of this paint blends effectively with any other color. For example, even if your wall behind the cabinet is an extremely bright color, like say yellow, then it is advisable that you use white color to paint the kitchen cabinet. The only draw back of the white color is that you need to wipe and clean it every once in a while, as any stain or accumulation of dust becomes quickly visible on the surface. On the cost aspect, white color is the most economical option.

Painting in Correlation

Paint in correlation! Didn’t get it? Painting in correlation means that you select the color of the paint according to the surrounding colors of the room. For example, if your floor is made of a darker shade of black or brown, then paint the kitchen cabinet in corresponding shade like light brown. You can also try out the inverse color combination such as painting the cabinets lush white if you have a flooring of dark wood.

Choosing a Theme

Another innovative idea is that of using some shapes, themes or colors for painting the cabinets. To do this, you need to select a theme for the kitchen cabinet, such as, fruits. First coat the kitchen cabinet in yellow. Then you can paint miniature fruits on to this coat of paint, like apples or bananas or peaches or pears. You can also draw these fruits on the cabinet with the help of marker pens or felt pens. If you think you cannot draw the small miniature fruits on the cabinet, then it is also possible to use a set of stickers.
