Kitchen Cabinet Color – Ideas & Inspiration
Extending the life of your existing kitchen cabinets is a lot easier than replacing them. Painting kitchen cabinets with Benjamin Moore’s ADVANCE® in any one of 3,500+ colors gives your kitchen bold new character and a smooth, furniture-like finish. It’s time to bring the high impact of color to the heart of your kitchen.
Enrich Cabinets with Color
When considering new color for your cabinets, look to materials like the countertop, backsplash, fixtures, and flooring. Let these color cues inspire new color for your cabinets.
Consider bringing some drama to your cabinetry with a deep color, like Char Brown 2137-20, seen here in Satin finish. A more saturated color on your cabinets in any level of glossy sheen can maximize shine and create an elegant look.
You can select just a portion of your cabinetry to highlight with a deeper color, while balancing the combination with more classic kitchen hues like off-white or putty.
Sheen: A Key Ingredient
Be sure to consider sheen when selecting color for each surface you are painting in your kitchen.
You can create a subtle–yet striking–effect with color by choosing one hue, but using that color in different sheen levels on each surface.
For example, use a low sheen such as matte or eggshell on the walls, then opt for a semi-gloss or high-gloss sheen on the cabinets. The way light reflects off each surface will create understated contrast, even though you are only painting with one color.
