Black kitchen cabinets are a great addition to any contemporary home or kitchen. Black has been coming back in a big way when it comes to home decorations and furniture, and cabinets are a prominent enough part of the kitchen to use the color as a basis for the rest of your decor.
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.
Be sure that the primer has completely dried and you're ready to lay down the final coat of black paint. Steady and easy strokes will give you the most even coverage. Do not overload the brush because this can cause drips. Nobody wants drips on their kitchen cabinets... You'll get enough of that with the food. It's best if you can manage at least three coats, if not four, of your choice of black paint with a drying time of no less than 24 hour.
Prior to painting cabinets, they should be properly prepared. Some mild sanding techniques are necessary when the wood finish or old paint is glossy and smooth. The surface should be rough so that the new paint will easily adhere to it. After sanding the cabinet surface, clean them with soap and water. After drying, painting tape should be applied to the edges of the cabinets, on the floor, counter tops, walls and other surfaces to prevent paint from getting into places where you don't want it to go.
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.
