Are you looking to update your kitchen? Cabinet paint can give your kitchen the fresh look you are hoping for without a huge price tag. Here are four things to consider when you are choosing a cabinet paint color.

4 Things to Consider When Choosing a Cabinet Paint Color

1.  The Size of Your Kitchen. It is important to consider the amount of space in your kitchen when choosing cabinet paint. Darker paints seem to make a small space feel smaller while soft shades of white, cream, or gray can create a bright, airy feel.

2.  The Existing Color Scheme and Style of Your Kitchen. A color wheel can be useful when picking cabinet paint. It can help you find complementary colors for your walls, countertops, and appliances. If your existing color scheme uses warmer colors, choose cabinet paint that has a warm tone.  If you have mostly cool tones, you will want to look at cooler colors.

3.  Kids and Pets. White cabinets are very popular. However, they are also magnets for dirty fingerprints, food spills, and scuff marks. If you have small children or pets, you may want to consider other colors.  There are many great choices to choose from that will be less time consuming to keep clean. Take a look at a light gray or cream instead.

4.  The Style of Your Kitchen. You also want to take into consideration the style of your cabinets. Classic colors like cream and white will always look great in a more traditional kitchen.  Contrasting colors can be a fun choice for a more modern kitchen style.
