Update Your Kitchen Cabinets with Colorful Interiors

Kitchen & Cabinet PaintingHave you ever heard the expression, “What looks in looks out”? If you’ve been looking into a dark, worn, or otherwise lackluster space each time you open your kitchen cabinets, consider giving them a makeover. Homeowners with glass cabinet doors in their kitchens already know how accenting these areas can add interest and a whole different dimension to the kitchen. The same kind of magic happens when the interior shelves, sides, and backs of cabinetry is given a pop of color.

Consider also how many times on any given day that family members reach into the kitchen cabinets for a plate, glass, mug, or snack. Painting the inside woodwork a cheery or contrasting shade can give everyone a little boost as opposed to reaching onto a dreary, beat up, shelf. Another makeover possibility when the inside is painted in a festive shade is that a few or all-cabinet doors can be removed for an updated, yet retro/vintage look.

When choosing an interior cabinet color for the kitchen, it helps to keep a few points in mind:

  • Do you want to have a contrasting accent color that’s much darker or lighter than the outside framework and doors?
  • How will the new interior color compliment your stacks of dishes and glassware?
  • Are you already using a defined accent color elsewhere in your kitchen? That may be the direction to take.
  • In addition to creating a contrasting finish, monochromatic paint jobs are another way to go. These are especially attractive in more formal or contemporary kitchens, where interesting color choices for the cabinets can add sophistication and a little drama!
  • Even if the woodwork on the cabinetry exterior is stained, painting the interior can still make an impact. Choosing the right color to accent the wood finish can create a very subtle design scheme. For example, for an industrial modern feel that makes a bold statement, try oil stained ebony cabinets with red, fuchsia or emerald interiors. Natural oak doors with robin egg blue, mint green or lemon yellow interiors say country fresh.
  • It is also possible to use several colors when redoing cabinet interiors. This tends to either create a stylized contemporary look, or depending on the color palette, it may translate into something more whimsical.

Kitchen Cabinet Makeover

Ideas for Painted CabinetsOver the years, your kitchen cabinets will get a lot of wear and tear. Instead of spending a small fortune to replace them, why not simply refresh their look with a new coat of paint or an attractive faux finish? Colour Solutions offers professional cabinet painting services to give your kitchen a totally new look for a fraction of the cost of replacing them.

With a very wide selection of colors to choose from, including the basic neutrals as well as attractive shades to suit just about any style, Colour Solutions can help you choose a look that works well in your kitchen. Whether you’re going for a more modern look or you want to capture a rustic “shabby chic” motif, Colour Solutions’ design experts can create a custom painting project suited to your tastes and budget.

Need a few ideas to get started?

  • Choose a bright white to create the illusion of a bigger, more open space. This works well in small galley kitchens.
  • Want something more unique? Consider experimenting with deeper shades of colors found throughout your home.
  • Consider the layout of your kitchen and how color will play into it. Does your kitchen open up to the dining/living area? You may want to break up the monotony by choosing a different color that complements the color in those areas. Likewise, you may start out with the idea of painting your kitchen and find that you’d like to have that color flow through the entire space.
  • Two-tone effects are also becoming more popular in kitchens. Choose a lighter color for your upper cabinets such as cream, white or a light shade of green, and choose a darker shade for the lower cabinets. This effect helps draw the eye upward and can make your ceilings appear higher, making the room appear larger.
  • Inspect the design of your cabinets. Depending on the style and texture, a faux finish may work well.

Kitchen and Bathroom Painting

Kitchen & Cabinet PaintingMaking improvements to your home’s kitchen and bathrooms can have a big impact on its resale value, not to mention your own sense of comfort and happiness. One way to easily transform your kitchen or bath into a beautiful space is to add a fresh coat of paint. At Colour Solutions, we offer a range of kitchen and bath painting services in the Wilmington area, from simple applications to luxurious faux finishes, all at a reasonable price.

If you’re planning on putting your home on the market soon, a newly-painted kitchen or bathroom will add value to your home and will likely attract more potential buyers. Just be sure to consult with a Colour Solutions design expert first, to help you choose a color that will appeal to a wide range of tastes. Of course, you can’t please everyone, but when putting your home on the market, it’s important to consider the taste of those who may be interested in buying. If you choose something extreme or something that reflects the current “fad,” the paint job may end up being more of a deterrent. Neutrals are usually the safest bet, but light or muted colors can also be attractive.

Even if you aren’t planning on selling your home any time soon, adding a fresh coat of professionally applied paint can do wonders for your home’s personal appeal. Kitchens are especially important. It is estimated that most people spend the majority of their time at home in the kitchen, as opposed to any other room in the house. It makes sense when you think about it. Kitchens are thought to be the heart of the home, as this is usually where families gather to prepare meals, talk to one another and socialize with friends. Haven’t you ever noticed that people tend to hover around the kitchen at parties? This is probably due to the common link between food and socializing. So why not do something to really improve one of the most important rooms in your home? A professional paint job is a relatively inexpensive way to spiff up any room, but a kitchen will benefit from it the most.

Like kitchens, bathrooms tend to get a lot of traffic. Although they aren’t used for socializing or eating, bathrooms are also very important when it comes to the overall comfort and appearance of your home’s interior. A bathroom with a poor paint job or stained and outdated wallpaper will certainly detract from the home’s resale value, but it can also bring your mood down. Studies have shown that when homeowners are proud of the way their home looks, they tend to enjoy spending time at home more than those who are unsatisfied with their home’s appearance.

If you’d like to explore the possibilities in your home, be sure to contact Colour Solutions for a free painting estimate. Call 910-686-3067 or simply fill out our contact form on our website. We offer high-quality, professional kitchen and bathroom painting services at affordable prices.

Ideas for Painted Cabinets

Giving your kitchen cabinets a fresh coat of paint can improve their look and give your room a completely different appearance.

With just about any color you can imagine to choose from, Colour Solutions can help you find the perfect shade for your home’s cabinets. Choose classic white for a bright, clean look. Or go with something darker, such as deep forest green, to complement wood or copper elements and create a natural feel.

If you’re thinking of doing something a little different, don’t be afraid to experiment with bright colors or maybe even metallic finishes. Stainless steel appliances can look great when complemented by light counter tops and metallic-pained cabinets and compact spaces generally look much larger and more open when bright, light-reflecting colors are used.

Another unique idea is to use two different paint colors to create a two-tone effect in your home. Picture your upper kitchen cabinets in a light color such as white or cream, and the lower cabinets in a darker shade to match the color scheme of your home. This effect draws the eyes upward, making the ceiling appear higher and the room appear larger.
