If you have an old kitchen that’s lacking in style, you may think a complete renovation is needed. However, with a simple can of paint, you can completely transform the look of your kitchen. Kitchens with color is one of the most popular design trends of 2021.
Since we’ve all spent so much time at home this past year, the kitchen has likely become an extension of the family room. So, give it some personality by choosing a color for your cabinets that speaks to you.
Painting your cabinets is a completely affordable way to change the look for less. If you choose to, you can also add new hardware -- metallics usually work well - to your old cabinets, to complete the look. Here are five colors we’re completely loving!
Moody and Muted Blue
If you’ve got light or white counters, a blue color can transform your kitchen! Paint that is light and airy, but a slightly deeper, moody shade like this Valspar Deep Twilight Blue adds a feeling of creativity and fun to the space.
Black is Back
This color may surprise you, but black paint, when used properly, will create a sleek and sophisticated look to your kitchen. Pairing nicely with white accents as well as white floors, use a matte black paint for your cabinets like Valspar 2000 Flat Black Interior Paint.
For a kitchen that already has neutral gray shades and stainless steel appliances, a deep, plum shade of purple like Eggshell Expressive Plum will look elegant and not too overpowering.
Robin’s Egg Blue
This more subtle blue tone is vivid yet timeless. It looks gorgeous amongst white and silver tiling, light wooden floors, and any other neutral tones. Paint your cabinets with Benjamin Moore Bird’s Egg 2051-60 to achieve this look.
Your friends will be green with envy when they see your elevated new look at home. An emerald green paint like Enchanted Forest 700 from Benjamin Moore looks great in a home that is more industrial in style, like one with exposed brick and wooden beams.
