Kitchens with Color

7 Comments

In honor of  National Painting Week, I thought it would be fun to look at some boldly painted kitchen cabinets.

 It seems that only ten years ago, cabinetry options were limited to a wide variety of wood tones and maybe some white.  Color in the kitchen wasn’t for cabinetry, it was for linens or serving ware or walls.  Today,we’re embracing color everywhere…even on our kitchen cabinetry.  It started slow, with a few of us trying edgier neutrals, like black or gray, on our cupboards or maybe an accent island.  Then a brave soul or two showed us how pretty blue cabinetry could be.  Now, more and more designers and homeowners are stepping out of their comfort zones and trying every color of the rainbow.  Love it or hate it, you have to admit there’s something energizing about a kitchen that’s saturated with color.

So, I’m really curious:  how many of you would be willing to try painting your kitchen cabinets with a bold color?  Would you try it out on a single cabinet or island first?  If you could try out a new color on your cabinets for a single day, what color would it be?

    I’m ready to paint all my kitchen cabinets in Pencil Point by Behr (very similar to charcoal gray)! Right now they are natural oak that is yellowing from the finish the builders put on them. The breakfast table will be painted Gothic Amethyst or Amethyst Plox, I haven’t decided which just yet.

    Not everyone can build up the courage to paint their kitchen cabinets purple or lime green – but these were some great examples of what is possible if you have the guts! I think you can still get the same bold feel with more conservative colors without sacrificing your resale value later down the road. White, gray or even mocha colored paint can make a big impact in an average sized kitchen.

    I would like to paint my kitchen with the sky blue u showed. But what material are these cupboards made of?

      You would have to check over to the original sources for more info (linked under each post) but you can paint pretty much any cupboards. We have lots of tutorials — just search for painted cabinets here on our site and you’ll find lots of colors and methods! Thanks!
