More and more homes are choosing for the open floor plan where the kitchen is a part of the open area. Many of the open floor plans are designed in a high tech or contemporary style. It is this style of kitchen that you will find black kitchen cabinets.
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.
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.
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.
Be sure when shopping for these color of cabinets that the paint is oil-based. Latex-based paint is cheaper, but after some time the paint itself can feel strange or sticky to the touch. It is even possible for the black to fade to a dark gray after some time with latex paint. Oil paint dries much harder than latex, so it will always feel as good as the day you purchased the cabinets. The color will also stay for a much longer period of time, if not forever.
