From Woodgrain to White: 2-Tone Kitchen Painting in the Central Valley

From Woodgrain to White: 2-Tone Kitchen Painting in the Central Valley

Jan 15, 2018

These days, many homeowners don’t just let their cabinets sit there. Gone are the days of mere functionality. When it comes to kitchen cabinets, one style choice stands out among the rest: painted, or woodgrain?

Beyond fancy fixtures or glasswork, most people are more concerned with the big picture. They want their cabinets to improve the homey atmosphere of the kitchen, and nothing changes the mood of a home quite like color.

Why Go With Painted Cabinets?

Cabinets take up a good portion of your kitchen wallspace. Like it or not, this means they establish the dominant color scheme of the room. When you’re constantly looking at dark stained wood in your wraparound cabinets and beneath your counters, the space can end up feeling close and neutral.

Painting your cabinets is a great way to transform your kitchen without a costly renovation. These days, painted cabinets (particularly in shades of white or off-white) are becoming super popular. They add a clean look to any kitchen, and can combine with wall and island painting to create a bright, energetic space. Take a look at this article to see some of the freshest color combinations out there!

Kitchen Cabinet Painting Styles: What’s Hot?

Two-tone painting in the kitchen is growing in popularity. It provides a chance to let two harmonizing colors shine out, accenting different areas of the room in just the right ways.

A recent cabinet painting project we completed serves as the perfect example of this. The homeowners had a freestanding island and an extensive array of base and overhead cabinets. But with the dark hardwood flooring, combined with the island and cabinets, there was a lot of woodgrain going on.

They opted for a bone white paint for the cabinetry with a metallic blue for the island, and they never looked back! Each area of the kitchen is now clean, distinct, and uniform.

Hiring Professional Cabinet Painters Can Transform Your Kitchen!

Take a look at our blog about painting versus replacing your kitchen cabinets, and consider whether you’re ready to liven up your kitchen! We often find that homeowners are more than thrilled with a professional paint job over new cabinetry or a full-scale renovation.
