What Color Should I Paint My Kitchen Cabinets?

Whether you’re giving your kitchen a complete overhaul or just giving it a quick refresh, you’ll want to find the best color to paint your kitchen cabinets. Finding the best paint for kitchen cabinets requires taking several key factors into consideration. 

We’re going to discuss the things you want to keep in mind when choosing a paint color for your kitchen cabinets, as well as some other common questions homeowners may have while revamping their kitchen.

Best Paint for Kitchen Cabinets 

Giving your kitchen cabinets a new coat of paint will revitalize the room and make your space feel new again. When you’re choosing your new paint color, you should consider the colors you already have in your kitchen.

Think about the color of your flooring, countertops, walls, and appliances. You’ll want a color that will pair well with the others in your room, but don’t feel too restricted. Sometimes contrasting colors, such as white cabinets with all-black appliances, can create a beautifully modern aesthetic.

Another factor you’ll want to consider is the climate in your area. Homes in colder climates that don’t get a lot of natural sunlight may want to stick to darker and richer colors. Dark colors can help absorb and trap some of the heat in your room, which can be a big blessing during the winter.

Should You Add More Kitchen Cabinets?

Giving your kitchen a makeover presents the perfect opportunity to reassess your storage space. Do you have enough cabinets to meet your needs, or do you frequently find yourself stuffing in the last of the groceries after a shopping trip?

While you’re at it, this is a time‌ to reevaluate the storage space in your pantry, too. Do you need to add some more shelves to your pantry? If you’re running low on storage space in your kitchen or pantry, then you should check out these awesome tips.

#1 Look for Unused Space

The space above your refrigerator is a perfect spot for adding some custom cabinets. It’s a great spot to store items you don’t use frequently, but still want to keep in the kitchen. 

Another idea is to install some corner shelves if you have an unused corner. You should also consider getting a hanging fruit basket. Some hanging fruit baskets can fit underneath the cabinets above your kitchen counter. This will keep your fruit fresh and open up some space in your pantry. 

#2 Always Use Shelf Dividers

This tip can be applied to the shelves in your pantry and your cabinets. Using shelf dividers will help you keep your food and dishware organized, which will ultimately open up more room. 

#3 Get a Magnetic Spice Rack

Spices can take up a ton of room in your pantry or cabinets. Magnetic spice racks will attach to the side of your fridge, and they often have room to hold other things as well. You could put your extra baking powder/soda, sugar, flour, and other baking-related items on the spice rack to open up even more room in the pantry.
