If you are planning to remodel, upgrade or add a kitchen in a contemporary style, especially if you are considering the "high-tech" look, consider black kitchen cabinets. Use black for accent or for background. It is perfect in combination with stainless steel appliances, sinks and lighting or with light colors. By providing plenty of light, you can create a spectacular and unique kitchen design.
When getting black kitchen cabinets for your home, you should think about a few things ahead of time to make sure that they are really the right fit for your kitchen. There are all kinds of different materials and styles of cabinets, so don't think that black cupboards are the best option. In recent years, black metal or wood cabinets have really become a common thing found in all kinds of kitchens all over the country. Let's take a look at some of the characteristics of them so you can make a better buying decision.
Using upper or lower halves of cabinets is normally the way to go when you are looking for contrasting elements in black cabinets. You also have a choice of using a granite countertop with black highlights. The granite countertop with black highlights offers you continuity. Granite countertop works brilliantly in a bigger space. Too much black in a smaller kitchen will create uninviting ambience.
Just because the cabinets are painted a color as strong as black does not mean that they must be made of plywood or other cheap materials. It is possible to find black kitchen cabinets that are made out of as high quality wood as unpainted cabinets would be. Some manufacturers even offer them in cherry, which is the hardest and most expensive type of wood you can purchase for home use.
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.
