When you have kitchen cabinetry in a wood finish it’s often discussed whether or not to paint the cabinets. I have often had this discussion with clients and many are unhappy with the kitchen but they don’t have the budget to replace the cabinetry. More often the cabinetry is in good condition and the layout works but the finishes make the space feel dated.
If you find yourself in any of these situations, then you should think about getting out your paintbrush.
1. Your layout works and the kitchen is functional but you aren’t happy with the style or colour scheme.
2. You have lived with the same kitchen for several years and you really want to change it without having to deal with a renovation.
3. You are considering selling your house and your kitchen is more than 10 years old.
Painting your cabinets can give your kitchen a great update and it’s the fraction of the cost of new cabinetry. In many kitchens there is more cabinetry than wall space so the colour of the cabinets really sets the tone for the space. If you’ve ever drastically changed the paint colour in a room you can understand the impact that colour has in large doses.
Painting cabinetry is not difficult but it can be time consuming and it requires patience but the payoff is huge. See these examples:
