If you have lots of windows and your kitchen is large, black cabinets should work very well and will not darken the room at all. The look will be even more enhancing if your appliances and counter tops are a lighter color, and your floors are a light colored oak. Many cabinet manufacturers offer dozens of specialty finishes in black for maple cabinets. Some have websites where you can design your cabinets online to see what they will look like.
First things first - Now that you've decided on painting black kitchen cabinets, you'll need to prepare your cabinets properly. Make absolutely sure that they are clean of all dirt and grime by using a damp soft scrub or cloth. Taking on that built up grease may need an ammonia based cleaner, so be sure to ventilate the room properly whilst you're working. You'll want to be sure that you ventilate properly during the painting process as well. Should your kitchen cabinets have a glossy finish to them, it will be necessary to do a little bit of sanding, just to rough the surface up a bit. The rougher surface will be more likely to grab hold of the new paint. Also make sure that when you're done sanding you re-clean the cabinets with soap and water. Make sure that they are completely dry before taping and covering any edges where you don't want paint. Cover countertops, the floor, walls... Anything that is not to be painted black.
Black kitchen cabinets are also much more durable. Depending on the wood you choose, some cabinets may be expensive than others. It will not be hard to find the black kitchen cabinets according to your needs. There are many online stores operating which have a wide range of variety of cabinets available. The black cabinets can also be found in combination of other colors too.
Black is a contrasting color that will make the other features of your kitchen stand out. It works extremely well with stainless steel appliances. White or brightly colored window dressings that match the color of the walls will really add to the contemporary look and feel of the room. The hardware you use on the cabinets should also be of a contrasting color so that they stand out. One example is to use white knobs and handles with the black cabinets. The countertop you use should also be a light color. If you have black cabinets and a black or dark countertop, your kitchen will not have an appealing look.
Prior to painting cabinets, they should be properly prepared. Some mild sanding techniques are necessary when the wood finish or old paint is glossy and smooth. The surface should be rough so that the new paint will easily adhere to it. After sanding the cabinet surface, clean them with soap and water. After drying, painting tape should be applied to the edges of the cabinets, on the floor, counter tops, walls and other surfaces to prevent paint from getting into places where you don't want it to go.
