Home design is often personalized by the finish choices we make and the splendor of the decorative objects that adorn our homes. When the budget is on the lower side, it’s natural to have more creative pieces, which brings a new decor to your space. Using colors and creative furniture is always a way to bring a different look to your interior. Using green for the kitchen cabinet doors is one way to bring a fresh feel to the kitchen.
Let’s take a look at the different shades of green used in this kitchen cabinet doors. From dark and gritty stains to a subtle shine and a muted olive shade on the lower cabinet, there’s definitely a fresh flair to these doors.
Of course, there’s always the other way around. Painting the lower cabinet in a bolder hue than the ones above, like this shade of green, will definitely draw the eyes up. Not to mention that a brighter shade of green would have a happy impact as well.
If you decide to go with a painted lower cabinet, there are a few things you can do to make sure it pairs well with the rest of your kitchen. First, check out the cabinets themselves. If the cabinets are properly painted, they should be the same shade. Also, check the drawers underneath the cabinet. Any noticeable deterioration can cause a downsize in the look of your kitchen as soon as a new coat of paint can be applied.
Another thing to consider is the materials. The bottom of the cabinets should be painted in the same color as the countertop. But just painting the lower cabinets will not do the trick. If you’re dealing with difficult stains or imperfections, you should spot-lift the surface. Then, you can’t forget to clean the faces of the cabinets.
It’s also important that you choose the right cleaning products. You need to be careful about what kind of finish you’re using on the cabinets. Stainless steel cabinets are the most durable ones because of their high shine and resistance to fingerprints. However, they need to be sealed regularly in order to avoid deterioration. Wood cabinets, on the other hand, can be damaged very easily because of the grain.
There’s also the cost to consider. If you decide to get the green paint on your cabinets, you should also buy some special cleaners that won’t damage the prim rust color or anything else. Make sure you purchase stainless steel cleaning products that are waterproof, stain-resistant and easy to clean.
