If you’re going to be doing the painting yourself, you’ll want to take time to research the right paints and method for painting. Now sure how to get started with such a big DIY project? Take a look at our article How to Paint Your Kitchen Cabinets Like a Pro, and you’ll be ready in no time.
The door style makes the cabinet: When choosing cabinetry the door style is what you’re really choosing for your decoration. To find cabinet doors, bring home samples or pictures from your local cabinetry dealer. Choose minimal lines for modern kitchens, exposed simple lines for Craftsman style, and intricate detailed doors for a traditional look. Many cabinetry companies will have a sales person that can bring samples to your home to compare in your kitchen. This is a great idea if you are wavering on a style!
Accessories for your cabinets: Door pulls; crown molding and wine racks can be added to your cabinets for a finished style. For homes that prefer simplicity, long slender door pulls should be considered. To save money, have your cabinets installed by a professional, and do the door pulls yourself. Home improvement stores have a wide selection, as well as custom hardware can be ordered online and installed by you for a fraction of a professional installer. Accessories can take your cabinets from ordinary to one-of-a-kind!
Colors to suit every design style: Is your design style eclectic or ultra edgy that you don’t want to see your interiors in everyone else’s house? Modern styled cabinetry has color choices from cobalt blue to lemon yellow, and every color in the spectrum you can fathom. For those of you that enjoy a kitchen that will represent your personality, cabinetry that exudes color and definition doesn’t require ornamentation and detail. Minimal décor is required, as your cabinetry sets the stage for the entire space!
While countertops, flooring and cabinets are generally places to keep it simple, the backsplash is a good place to inject some personal style, whether that’s with a mosaic feature or a bold color. And since that wall literally connects the countertops with the cabinets it’s also a place to tie everything together.
The secret is in the contrast. If you want your countertop to stand out, select a countertop color that pops or stands out from the cabinetry.
