Interior painting projects can be a fun and easy way to transform your home. But if you take the time to think beyond just wall paint, you will find there are other spaces in your Portland, OR home that deserve a fresh coat of paint, such as your cabinets. We at Bluenote Painting want to give you some inspiration for choosing paint colors for all of the cabinets in your home. Don’t limit yourself just to kitchen cabinets. Bathroom cabinets and living room built-ins can all be transformed with new paint colors.
White paint colors can be considered a safe and easy paint color choice. But once you start thumbing through paint swatches, you may find that choosing just the right white for any room can be a daunting task.
When it comes to your kitchen, steer away from a white that is too bright. A creamy white interior paint will be more welcoming, and better for resale value (want to link to Choosing Paint colors for resale value) in your kitchen.
If crisp white is calling your name, consider painting your built in bookcases in a crisp, fresh white interior paint color. To make a statement, paint the backs of your bookshelves in a dark color.
Muted colors vs Bold colors
While bright and bold paint colors may be trending all over Pinterest these days, that does not mean that your bathroom cabinets should be painted in a bright kelly green. When choosing paint colors for your cabinets, remember that these are colors you want to love for years to come. Softer paint colors may be easier to love in 5 years than bright colors that seem to be all the rage this year.
But, if your interior decorating style is more bold, then your cabinets are a great place to add more adventurous color. So if that bright kelly green is truly calling your name, then let your cabinets be the place where you let your bold side show. Again, painting built-ins in a white paint color with a bright background can be another way to add interest to any room.
Classic paint colors for cabinets are navy, white, and gray. We already talked about choosing the best white paint colors, but the same attention should go into choosing other classics like navy and gray.
Navy paint is rich and adds sophistication to any room. For a twist on this classic paint color, find a navy with purple undertones.
Dark grays are another classic choice for cabinets. Dark gray paint will make a statement while light gray paint may fade into the background a little easier.
Whichever direction you decide to go when you are choosing paint colors for your cabinets, another important choice is the paint company you hire to do the work. Bluenote Painting understands the importance of both choices. Check out our interior painting portfolio to view some of our work and contact us today for a free estimate.
