Looking to spruce up your kitchen? Consider a fresh coat of paint
Worn cabinets can ruin an otherwise beautiful aesthetic-but a fresh coat of paint will hide a multitude of sins.
Cabinets take up a considerable amount of space in just about any kitchen, so they can make or break a room.
If your cabinets are looking a little tired, it might be time for a makeover. For many years, natural wood stains and whitewashes were the most popular cabinet finishes. And while woodgrains still hold appeal in some markets, painted cabinets are now universally hot.
You see painted cabinets everywhere and with good reason: They provide a clean, sleek look that works well with every decorating style, from Midcentury Modern to industrial chic to cottage, and they're easy to keep clean, especially with technological advancements in today's paints.
The most popular cabinet colours in recent years have been white and off-white, but more colourful options are also emerging. It's becoming common for a homeowner to apply a hue from the home's larger colour scheme to the cabinetry. Grays, slate blues, sage greens, and even muted purples-all popular decorating colours-are becoming common. Because kitchens are often visible from other areas of the house, the trend helps tie rooms together, too.
