Let's get down to painting - Either a primer or the first coat of your black paint is your next step. The primer should be black or grey in order to save money and time if you're painting your kitchen cabinets black. Ideally, a couple of coats of primer are a good idea, allowing approximately 4 hours drying time. The primer is going to be useful, not only for its adhesive quality to the surface of the cabinet, but it also helps protect your final paint job. The primer step can be skipped if your cabinets are black already, but if the color of your cabinets is going to be changed from anything other than black, you really should stick with priming.
What you need most is patience, some clear thought about what you want and a strategic plan to get the right look for your kitchen. It is a wise investment for the novice kitchen designer to buy one of the many books on the subject of kitchens and colors. Don't be afraid of black and white; just remember that one color opens up a room while the other will close it in. Just let your imagination be your guide to designing that black kitchen cabinets your richly deserve.
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.
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.
Black kitchen cabinets are a great addition to any contemporary home or kitchen. Black has been coming back in a big way when it comes to home decorations and furniture, and cabinets are a prominent enough part of the kitchen to use the color as a basis for the rest of your decor.
