Whether it’s a sudden desire for color, the need to start fresh, or a cost-effective way of making one’s kitchen look new again, painted cabinets are all the craze these days. If you’re ready for a kitchen change, here are some painted cabinet trends that might suit your style:
White Kitchens Cabinets
Fresh and clean is still hot hot hot. Whether you go for pure white or a winter white, white painted cabinets create a brilliant and open kitchen effect. Check out these white painted kitchens on houzz.
A newer trend, and a close second to white, gray is sleek and stylish right now. After years of browns and earth tones, our eyes are coveting cooler colors. Consider half gray cabinets and half white, also a trending look. Read more on gray here.
Blue Painted Cabinets
Especially aqua blue. Whether it’s a vintage tone (like robins egg blue) or a brighter, more modern tone (pure aqua), blue is exciting in the kitchen. Houzz features some beautiful blue painted kitchen cabinets here.
Black is hot for 2014 all around. Black cabinets bring contrast and depth to a kitchen. Black cabinets can feel exceptionally modern when paired with silvers and edgy shapes, or traditional and vintage when used with rubbed edges or specialty finishes. Here are some black kitchen cabinet ideas from houzz to get you started.
Two-toned Painted Cabinets
Even more intriguing than one kitchen cabinet color is… two! Painting the top cabinets one color and the lower cabinets another adds interest and depth. Or painting feature pieces (your pantry door, that open cabinetry shelving, the cabinets above your stove) one bright color against the backdrop of the remaining cabinets in a neutral tone is also a compelling way to get this effect. See more examples of the two-toned cabinet trend here.
