We spend a lot of time in our kitchens during the holidays. The design of a kitchen should reflect how you want people to feel when they enter your home. If your kitchen does not appear to have any warmth or happiness, then it’s time for a quick makeover. The most cost-effective and timely way to brighten up your kitchen before the holidays is to paint your cabinets.
A facelift for your cabinets is the perfect solution to spruce up your home for the holidays. The first step is to choose a paint color that pairs well with your holiday decor but also the rest of your home after the holidays are over.
Whites, beiges and light earth tones work great in most kitchens. They pair well with any wall color, texture, or material. These neutral colors are a consistent top choice for homeowners looking to repaint their kitchen cabinets. Choose one from Sherwin Williams’ naturalist palette.
If you want to pick the right sheen for your kitchen cabinets, you must know the look you want to achieve. Is your end-result high-end, rustic, modern, or chic?
It is not recommended to use a flat finish on cabinets. Even though that type of paint will hide most flaws, the cabinets will look dull. They also don’t clean well.
Once you know what color to paint your cabinets, don’t forget about the doorknobs and handles. If you are a minimalist and choose not to have hardware on your cabinets, that’s fine too. Either way, your kitchen is on its way to be the center of attention for your holiday gatherings.
Switching out the hardware on your cabinets can enhance the design of your kitchen.
The use of metallic colors can warm up your home just in time for the holidays. Gold, copper, and brass add a little shine to your kitchen. Include them on the cabinets, drawers, and kitchen fixtures.
In some kitchens, the hardware is no longer necessary. This seems especially true for slab kitchen cabinets. This trend is useful for more modern and sleek kitchen designs.
If you’re not too excited about open-shelving, you can always go with glass doors. You can either opt for fully transparent versions or ones that are opaque or misty white.
