For a contemporary kitchen, forgo traditional cabinets in the darker-stained wood tones and go with color. Color cabinets are a great way to add personality to a kitchen. The best part is that certain painted cabinets can be repainted as needed without having to replace them. The boldest color choices today are not necessarily bright yellow or saturated primary colors. Today’s neutral colors make a big, modern-yet-classic statement like: grey, blue, white, taupe
One of the most common ways for someone to get in on this trend is through choosing one set of cabinets to become a focal point for the space. In this case, a kitchen island is usually chosen because of its central spot in the layout. However, there’s no need to feel limited by that arrangement. Before making your decision, consider using space planning applications to see how a splash of color can draw the eye to various angles of the room.
We love our kitchens. We spend so much time in them, creating meals and memories with people that we love. So it only makes sense that, like the food we cook in them, our kitchens should be a reflection of creativity and happiness. It’s no secret that a kitchen renovation can be a daunting (and expensive) task. If your kitchen cabinets are in good shape, painting them is an inexpensive, eco-friendly way to give your kitchen a major facelift. Below are some painted kitchen cabinet ideas to inspire you.
3. Versatility. Oak is naturally a light colored wood with a strong grain. This makes oak cabinets ideal for customization. Oak looks appealing in a broad range of stains, from light to dark, and therefore can be colored to match any kind of home's decor. Better yet, as kitchen models come and go, oak cupboards can be sanded down and stained a different color, giving oak cabinets an impressive longevity.
These are merely some of the reasons to contemplate an oak cabinet kitchen remodel. So the next time you think about redoing your kitchen, be sure to check out the strength and beauty of oak.
