There are lots of colors that work well on kitchen cabinets, but it can be tricky to find the right one. Before selecting an unusual hue, take into account the other items and colors in the room. Look at your walls, counters, backsplash, floor and appliances. If you already have a lot of color in the room, it's best to go with white or neutral cabinets. There are many different shades of white to choose from, but all of them will help your room feel bright and fresh. White cabinets can also brighten up a dark room. Some good neutral colors for kitchen cabinets include light gray, dark gray, or greige (a mix of gray and beige). These neutrals will help ground your space and give you freedom to incorporate more playful colors via accessories and appliances.
Before you start painting, remove everything from your cabinets, clear off your counters, and cover your backsplash, appliances and floor. Next, you'll need to remove all of the hinges, hardware, doors and drawers from your cabinets. If you label each door with masking tape, you'll have a much easier time reinstalling all of them when you're finished. If you plan on using the same hardware, keep it all in a plastic bag so you don't lose any pieces or screws. It's much easier to paint cabinet doors if you have a worktable, but 2x4 boards propped on buckets or boxes can work as well. If you're really handy and have a garage, use wire or hangers to hang all the cabinet doors to make painting each side much more manageable.
If you tend to be more adventurous when it comes to color, your cabinets are a great place to have some fun. Yellow is a common go-to kitchen color; on cabinets you can try a light, buttery yellow or a pastel shade more reminiscent of lemonade. Sky blue is another popular kitchen color for walls and cabinets. It can create an airy, ethereal vibe and looks great with white and stainless steel accents. Mint green or bluish greens can look really nice on kitchen cabinets as well.
Cabinets are a focal point in the kitchen, so if you can't stand your current ones, give them a facelift with paint! Painting kitchen cabinets can be exhausting, but if you're up for the challenge, you'll have a kitchen you love soon enough.
When you're ready to get started, clear off your kitchen counters, empty your cabinets, and cover your backsplash and appliances. Remove all of the hinges, hardware, doors and drawers from your cabinets. Label each door with masking tape so you'll remember which one goes where and put all of the hardware in plastic bags so you don't lose anything. If you can fit a worktable in your kitchen, it will be much easier to paint the doors. If you don't have a large worktable, 2x4 boards propped on buckets or boxes will also work. If you don't have those materials, work on top of a drop cloth.
