To faux paint your kitchen cabinets, you will require at least two colors, a crackle paint and a tinted painter's wax. Apply a base color to your cabinets first and then apply a layer of tinted painter's wax. You can now apply another layer of color to the same surface and cover it with another layer of tinted painter's wax. Finally apply the crackling paint over the surface. After this final layer of paint dries, simply brush the surface using a sandpaper to remove any irregularities in the surface.
Black is a color that speaks complete elegance and style. What's more, it is so versatile that it can be used in both, a contemporary as well as a traditional setting. Why not use the charm of this color to create a style statement then, and design your kitchen with black cabinets? Now, as beautiful as it may look, this is the color you have to play safe with. While a little can add the much-needed missing element from your overall design, an excess can ruin the look of your kitchen and make it drab, overpowering, and even claustrophobic. On the positive side, this color can be combined with almost every other one to create a wonderful color combination that speaks for itself.
Painting the Cabinets: Painting the kitchen cabinets is one of the simplest things that you can do to change the way your kitchen cabinets always looked like. Colors make a powerful style statement and they are available in various shades so choose a color of your choice that also suits the overall kitchen decor and get your cabinets painted in that color. For a simple look you can go for matte finish colors but if you want a flashy glamorous look then glossy color paints are ideal for you.
If your kitchen hardware primarily consists of wood work, then scrap the wood using a sandpaper to remove any stains on your hardware. Scrapping is also necessary to remove unwanted wood particles from your kitchen cabinets. However, if you have painted your kitchen cabinets recently, do not proceed with this process. Instead, remove all the drawers from your cabinets and clean and scrap them. Follow the same procedure for your kitchen cabinet pulls and knobs.
The Contemporary Theme, Contemporary kitchen designs are all about sleek lines and solid colors, with no room for unnecessary elements. There is no room for softness when it comes to its design. As such, you have to be careful while choosing the cabinets to suit this theme. Ensure that the ones you install should be sleek and flat, without any molding or the like.
