Whites, beiges and light earth tones work great in most kitchens and with almost any wall color or wallpaper, making them the top choice for those looking to repaint their kitchen cabinets. To achieve this look, paint your upper cabinets a different color than your lower cabinets. While there are millions of color combinations, some of the more popular include black on bottom and white on top, or bold colors on bottom and neutral on top. You could also contrast colors between wall cabinets and island cabinets.
Here is a look your neighbors will not have (but they will surely envy when they see it). In the image below, the kitchen cabinets are galvanized, hot-rolled steel with a clear coat finish — the steel is layered over an MDF base. The finished look is nothing short of spectacular! This clean, minimalist style gives the illusion that this is not even a kitchen — the cupboards become a piece of stylish furniture or art, instead.
You can go about tying your cabinets together in a few ways. In the picture above, for example, both the upper and lower cabinets fit within the same color palette. Consider using two different shades of the same color as your equalizer. However, if you’d rather include two distinct hues, you should think seriously about using the same hardware throughout the space to bring the look together.
