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 work great as the main basis for a contemporary kitchen theme, especially due to the fact that black is rarely found in the kitchen besides in some foods. Setting up a matching lamp or two or having a black and white tiled floor can really wow your guests and family members.
While buying the cabinets off the shelf, you need to focus on the paint of these cabinets. You should thoroughly check the paint and make sure that the paint is oil based. The latex based paint is cheaper and it also feels sticky. For the black kitchen cabinets it's even possible that the black color fades away. So, it is very much important to check the quality of paint of the cabinets. The oil based paints are always better than others so make sure that you choose cabinets painted from this material. So, you should always purchase a cabinet which has the best paint and would last for a longer period of time.
Black dishes and accessories always look fabulous on a white table in one of these black and white kitchens. Scandinavian design uses many of black kitchen cabinets as well, but the rest of the kitchen is very light with a great deal of white and a lot of lighting. Sometimes the black kitchen cabinets have glass fronts and are lit on the inside, which will really brighten up a kitchen.
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.
