3 Colors to Consider Painting Your Kitchen Cabinets

Bringing new color into the lives of homeowners across Lexington, Columbia, Irmo, and Chapin since 2017.

If you want to give your kitchen a quick refresh, painting the cabinets is one way to go about it. Kitchen cabinet painting isn’t the hardest thing to do, but the need to make the paint as neat as possible means that you want to have a painting company do this work for you. When you paint the cabinets, you have a number of choices. Here are three specific colors you would do well to consider.

1. Basic White

Basic white might sound boring, but it’s actually the top color choice for people renovating or replacing kitchen cabinets. According to Statista, white was the first choice for close to half of homeowners between 2018 and 2022. In 2022, about 40 percent of homeowners thought white was the best cabinet color choice. Of course, there are different shades of white, so you will still have some variation to consider. Keep in mind that kitchen cabinet painting is really going to affect the look of the entire kitchen. You’ll want to be sure the shade you choose goes very well with the rest of the decor.

2. Medium Wood Stain

Another kitchen cabinet painting option is a little more involved. If the cabinets are made of wood that’s already painted, remove any current paint, and stain the wood a medium shade. If the cabinets have not yet been painted, then obviously there’s no need to remove the paint first. Medium wood stain colors came in second in the Statista survey, light wood came in fifth.

3. Color-of-the-Moment Gray

Of course, if you want your cabinets to match the style of the moment, then gray wins the day. Take a look at any home decor site or magazine, and look through real estate listings at new builds and newly renovated homes. You’ll find gray is everywhere now. It’s light enough not to make rooms seem closed in, but it’s not white and does provide a neutral backdrop for whatever else you want to add. This light gray gives off an air of calm while being very modern and stylish. Gray came in third in that Statista survey.

If you want your kitchen cabinets to be repainted, you can go with one of the three colors mentioned previously or choose another. You’re not limited when it comes to options. Take a look at swatches and ensure that the exact shade you’re getting will not clash with the other decorations and colors you plan to add. Contact Midlands Pro Painters today to learn more.
