Fresh style without the messy, expensive remodel.
Kitchen cabinet painting isn’t new, but it’s exploded in popularity in recent years. This is partly because kitchens are more of a focal point than ever, with open concepts turning what used to be a workstation into a gorgeous feature. As homeowners embrace this fresh focus, many want MORE for their space too. Stained finishes are beautiful, but color offers a deeper opportunity for style, customization, and personality.
Today, let’s take a look at some of the benefits of cabinet painting, and then we’ll check out a beautiful kitchen we just finished in Cranston, RI.
Should you paint your kitchen cabinets?
Asking yourself these questions can help:
- Does your kitchen meet your needs overall? The right size, layout, and functionality?
- Are your cabinets in decent condition?
- Are your cabinets worth investing in? Cabinet painting isn’t as expensive as a remodel, but it isn’t cheap. Painting is really only a good fit if you have nicely made cabinets that will offer value for years to come.
If you answered yes, the chances are good that cabinet painting is a solid choice. And the benefits are huge! The process is much, much faster than a full remodel, letting you get back to enjoying your kitchen in days instead of weeks or months.
If you work with a true professional cabinet painter, they also will have an off-site spray shop for painting your cabinet doors and drawer faces. This keeps the process out of your home, and allows for the highest-quality finishes possible.
A closer look at cabinet painting in Cranston
In this case, our client had a lovely kitchen, but they wanted more than just white cabinets. With the open concept and beautiful island, the potential was huge.
It was decided that we’d go with a darker gray for the lower cabinets, offering a nice neutral style, but with more character and depth. We refreshed the uppers, keeping them light and bright as a point of contrast with the lowers. This is a really popular approach, and it’s not hard to see why!
