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.
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.
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.
A kitchen is a place where people spend time cooking and relaxing and many times where the family comes together. Using black foreboding kitchen cabinets in a small kitchen can create an uncomfortable atmosphere and people will not want to even walk in there.
Kitchen cabinets take up 75% of the space in a kitchen by themselves and you must really think about what you are doing before you decide on the color of your kitchen. An open floor plan has a lot of space and normally many windows with lots of light, so having black kitchen cabinets in there will not be the focal point.
