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.
As mentioned earlier, you can create a combination of colors in cabinets if you find black too overpowering, even within the contemporary design framework. Use colors such as gray and white, perhaps, with a dash of red to create the perfect combination. The combination can also be attained in terms of such black furniture pieces and white flooring, and perhaps, red chairs at your breakfast table. Also, use a bright backsplash to complete this look. As overdone as you may find this color combination, nothing speaks contemporary better than this one.
You have just witnessed how these can be molded to fit within any kitchen design. As such, depending on your personal style and taste, choose from any of the aforementioned designs, or why not create a unique theme for it that reflects your personal style? The variety is immense and the choices, endless. Gift yourself the luxury of working in a well-designed kitchen, and enjoy all that it has to offer.
There are many popular colors used to paint kitchen cabinets with. These are usually neutral shades so that they match with any type of kitchen furniture, like a wooden dining table. These colors can be gray, beige, cream, lemon yellow, wooden brown, steel gray, etc. There are other bright colors which are also very popular and are used on a large-scale, for example; blue, green, red, orange, mustard, pink, yellow, etc. Sometimes, the cabinets have glass doors so as to give them a showcase exterior. A stained glass on the doors of these cabinets would look perfectly classy for a modern kitchen.
If your kitchen cabinets are light colored, you can apply a glaze color to darken them. This can be done through the process of staining. Apply a certain amount of glaze color on a limited area of the kitchen and start rubbing it using a wipe or sponge, until you get the desired color on that portion of your wood work. Once you are done with that particular area, color the remaining portions using the same process. Take care, that the entire cabinet has the same uniform color. One very important factor is that you need to choose a proper color. For antique kitchen cabinets, you should use metallic colors.
