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.
As cabinets play a prominent part in the overall feel of a kitchen, it is advisable that you use black color in smaller portions basically as the contrasting element. This is especially the case with appliances, as quite a number of times appliances capture eye in isolated bits. It is worth mentioning in this regard that appliances are not the dominant visual element in your kitchen. Another good thing about black color is that you will not face any problem in maintenance. Furthermore, black is more economical as compared to other colors as it laminate or painted and not a hardwood cabinet.
While they do not work very well in kitchens that are more conservatively decorated, black cabinets can work well in any contemporary or modern-designed kitchen or home. They are also becoming increasingly easy to find because of their growing popularity, so right now is better than ever to get some black kitchen cabinets installed in your home. The style they provide is something that can't be imitated by any other.
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.
A kitchen is a place where people spend time cooking and relaxing and many times where the family comes together. Using black foreboding kitchen cabinets in a small kitchen can create an uncomfortable atmosphere and people will not want to even walk in there.
