Presumably, you spend a lot of time in your kitchen. Or perhaps you
wish you spent more time in your kitchen. Either way, the kitchen is an
important part of your home. Besides being the place where all the
cooking is done, it is also a place where the family can come together
and just talk; it sometimes doubles as the dining room.
It’s the command center of your home and whether you know it
or not, the look and appeal of your kitchen can completely change the
way you and your family feel about it.
The first thing to keep in mind is that if you are thinking about how Naples cabinet painting can change your kitchen, you’re already thinking about the possibility of painting your cabinets.
And no matter how minimally you’re thinking about it, this means you
probably aren’t digging whatever is going on in your kitchen right now.
That’s fine. Whether you’ve lived in your home for a long time or just
moved in, homeowner’s know that change is inevitable.
And when it comes to change, painting your kitchen cabinets is an easy way to liven up your kitchen and make it a room you’ll love
to be in. We all know redecorating or remodeling can get kind of pricey,
but cabinet painting is the most cost friendly and cost efficient way
to drastically change your kitchen’s appearance. It definitely doesn’t
cost as much to paint your cabinets as it does to redo them completely.
And if your cabinets and their doors are structurally sound then you
don’t have to worry about doing any replacing.
Paint can work wonders on just about anything, especially when done right, and your kitchen cabinets are no exception. So how does painting your kitchen cabinets change your cooking space? Let’s find out.
Your cabinets account for most of the visible space in your
kitchen. This means the first thing you see when you walk in to your
kitchen is the cabinets. They are the first impression you get out of
that entire space. Giving your cabinets a fresh, quality paint job will
change the look of your entire kitchen, not just the cabinets. It’s just
a paintjob; not a full re-haul of all the appliances, not a counter
renewal or anything crazy and expensive like that. So whether you want
the entirety of your kitchen cabinets painted, or
you’re thinking of leaving the doors off of the upper half and painting
just the insides, you’re getting a whole new look, the simplest way.
The number one reason homeowners do most of the redecorating
and updating that we do is for the look. Not only do we want our space
to feel nice, we want it to look nice. So those dark stained cabinets
you’ve hated since moving in? They have to be changed. And that ugly
color the previous owners painted your cabinets that all of your guests
comment on? That’s got to be changed. Make your kitchen beautiful and
make it yours.
Interior designers and interior painters know that light and
color work together to trick how your mind views a room; whether you
see a room as open and airy or dark and heavy could totally depend on
the colors present. So the color a room is painted can easily affect the
way that you view that room. This is typically thought of when choosing
wall and décor color paint schemes, but it applies to your cabinets as
well. Painting your cabinets with bold colors can make a loud statement just as painting them with a
muted color can create a soft backdrop for a gentle space.
Dark colors on cabinets can provide a striking affect and a
stark contrast to the rest of the kitchen; they can add texture and
depth to the space. At the same time dark colors tend to absorb more
light and can create more restrictive spaces. Light colors on cabinets
can let more light in to the room and open the space up, but they might
not be as noticeable. A professional cabinet painting job can make your
kitchen seem bigger or smaller than it is, more homely or more
professional, warmer or colder, just with a few coats of paint. Talking
to professional interior painters beforehand can really help you create a room post-painting that gives off the exact look you want it to.
Having your cabinets professionally painted can completely
change your mood in two ways. The first way kind of ties in to the last
point of how the color of a room can change your perception of it. It
doesn’t stop there. Studies show that the color of a room can also
affect your mood. This isn’t just with a focus on dark colors do this
and light colors do this other completely different thing; each
individual color affects your mood in some way. For example, red can
raise the energy level of a room, it is an intense stimulating color.
Yellow, a great kitchen choice, makes you happy and is expansive and
welcoming. Neutral colors can be steady. So if you don’t like the
current mood in your kitchen, change the color of your cabinets.
The second way it changes your mood is the relief. We all
get tired of looking at the same old, boring cabinets. You want them
changed, but you don’t want to think about all of the time and effort
that goes in to painting them. But the fact is that once they’re done
and updated and you have a kitchen that looks completely new, every time
you look at your cabinets you’ll be pleased. You’ll be happy about how
they look, and happy that you don’t have to feel bad about ignoring
their appearance any longer. You’ll be glad to spend more time in your
kitchen and at that point it’s one project out of the way so you can
move your focus to another.
Change the Role of Your Kitchen
Painting the cabinets of your kitchen does so much for your
kitchen. It gives it new life while keeping a good amount of your money
in your pocket. And the new life of your kitchen doesn’t just end at the
freshly painted cabinets either; another small investment like adding
new door handles and knobs can change the way your cabinets look too.
Seeing the affect that such a small and simple change has on
your kitchen might even inspire you to make small changes in the rest
of your home. When it comes to your kitchen and the rest of your home:
if you’re going to live in it and use it, you should love all of it.
When considering why you should paint your kitchen cabinets and what you will get out of it, consider the fact that small things
done in your kitchen can greatly increase not just the resale value of
your home, but the value and role of the kitchen in your family’s life.
Bottom line, if you don’t already spend a lot of time in
your kitchen, this small little update can help to make your kitchen the
gathering point of your home.
