When choosing your cabinets, you need to decide whether you want a matte or glossy finish to the color. Both styles leave very distinct impressions, especially if you are getting cabinets that are black. A matte finish is significantly more subdued than one that is glossy, but that lack of shine can make the cabinets work better simply as a part of the decor and not as the main attraction. In the same vein, kitchen cabinets that are the color black as well as glossy can really stand out against the rest of your kitchen. It can also make the cabinets serve as the basis for the rest of your decor, which may be what you are looking for.
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.
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.

Combining black cabinets with a black floor will make the room look small and cramped. 11). Black cabinets will work best in a kitchen with a large amount of natural light - large windows, etc. 12). If a kitchen using black cabinets does not have natural light, you will need several lighting fixtures and over-counter sources that supply bright artificial light. 13). A light-colored tile floor is perfect with black cabinets. 14). Use of darker colors for walls, floor or ceiling will make the room too dark. 15). Light and bright-colored small appliances (blender, toaster, coffee maker) provide spots of color that break the dark cabinets and offer focal points in your kitchen.
