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.
If you are willing to risk this, then the high-gloss shine of lacquer cabinets may be the choice for your modern kitchen cabinetry, as its sleek aesthetic is unmatched. You can get lacquer cabinets in virtually any color of your choosing, but be aware that in order to maintain that glossy sheen, you must clean them properly.
Skipping the upper kitchen cabinets entirely may seem a bit risky to some, but by doing so you can really achieve quite the open, modern space. Take a look at the kitchen in the image below — its sleek black and white styling, sans upper cabinets, is very appealing. In place of upper cabinetry, you can add an amazing back splash that travels up to the ceiling, or you have room for an ultra-modern stainless steel hood over the stove.
Step 2: Open up the finished surfaces and even by lightly sanding. If you possess any dents or grooves on your cabinet surface, use a good wood filler to fill them up first. After sanding, wipe out the sanding dust with a clean cloth.
