Benefits of Custom-Painted Cabinets
From modern to antique and textured to distressed, painted cabinets provide many design variations to achieve your desired style. We love that painting gives a smoother and more uniform texture. Plus, natural wood imperfections can be hidden or repaired.
The best benefit for creating your chic space, is with a wide array of color and style options, there's more variety for countertop and appliance colors and styles. Talk about home chic home!
Set the Style Mood
Painted cabinets set the mood of the room. While stained cabinets offer some color selections, painting allows an endless range of shades and styles.
Lighter-colored cabinets can make the room look bigger, brighter, and more open. On the other hand, darker cabinets can pull a space together, make it cozier, and add a stylish edge.
What’s Trending with Painted Cabinets
The most popular colors recently have been whites, off whites, and grays. Navy has been gaining in popularity as well as all shades of blue and some jewel-toned greens.
Next year's hot cabinet colors are predicted to include bright blues, earth greens, citrus hues, and the mixing and matching of dual tones. Many designers are going with a lighter color for perimeter cabinets, contrasting with a darker island.
Think Outside the Kitchen
Adding just a pop of color around your home can liven up your space. Picture it:
- baby blue in the laundry room,
- a deep copper in the office,
- or an emerald green in the powder room,
Let your personality shine through! Adding color will modernize a bar space, create pizzaz with a drop space in the mudroom, or jazzing up your custom, built-in entertainment center are great options.
Painted Cabinet Care
Dings, dents, scrapes, and scratches occur over time regardless of color or finish. To prevent damage to the finish of painted cabinets, wipe up spills and smears while they are fresh.
It's also essential to clean cabinets near the cooktop often to remove any film from cooking grease. And avoid hanging wet dish towels over a cabinet door. Special touchup kits can be created with your custom paint colors.
Because painted cabinetry requires additional production time and labor, they are considered premium. This usually comes with a higher price tag.
Costs will vary depending on paint selection, glazing options, finishing styles, and distressing techniques. The total cost can be as much as 15-20% more than stained cabinets. Up to 75% of home remodels and new construction use painted cabinets to create unique and custom kitchens. This is your chance to build your dream home so this is the time to maximize your investment.
