Re-invent Your Kitchen
If you’re a true DIYer and looking for a fun project to tackle indoors, your kitchen is a great place to start! One of the best things about the kitchen is that you can give it an entirely new look simply by adding fresh paint. We recommend focusing on one of the focal points of your kitchen – the cabinets. Think about it, you and your family see and use them every day, so shouldn’t they help your kitchen’s look come together? A great way to accomplish this is to add two-toned painted cabinetry to your kitchen – whether by painting it yourself or choosing from Wellborn Forest Cabinetry’s extensive line of finishes.
What Are the Benefits of Two-Tone Painted Kitchen Cabinets?
Two-tone painted cabinets can fit any design style out there, which makes it a snap for you to craft the kitchen of your dreams in just a few steps. Plus, the color mixing options are endless, so you have even more design options available. Having two-toned cabinets can also improve your kitchen’s aesthetic, increase your home value, and can create an illusion of more space in a smaller home. So, no matter if you’re staying or selling, two-toned kitchen cabinets are the perfect choice for improving your home!
Choose Your Colors
Painting your kitchen cabinets isn’t the same as painting the walls of your home, so you’ll want to use the right paint for the job. Most household paints are prone to chipping and cracking on surfaces like cabinetry. Instead, look for enamel paints, which will look better over time and can withstand wear and tear. Trusted brands like Benjamin Moore have entire lines of special alkyd enamel paints, like their ADVANCE Paints. These even feature a special self-leveling formula, so when you apply your paint, it will leave a smoother finish!
Additionally, WF Cabinetry can match paint colors from Benjamin Moore. You can even have a sample door made so you can see how your preferred color will look in your kitchen.
Why Are Complementary Colors the Best Choice?
The colors you pick are just as important as the type of paint you use. Whatever color you decide on, make sure it complements your kitchen and appliances. If you have a lot of black appliances in your kitchen, try a rich dark brown to create a flowing, uniform look. Whereas, if you have an abundance of almond appliances, painting the cabinets a similar light sand color will work perfectly. Stainless steel appliances are even more versatile in terms of complementary color options, and the only limit is your imagination!
