ASAP- need help on kitchen cabinet colors
September 3, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are having our oak and kitchen cabinets painted tomorrow and still can't decide on the color. We know we want white but not sure if they need to match. We are deciding between pure white and snowbound by BM. Is pure white a stark white? We were told not o use a stark white. Our windows have white aluminum frames so we can't choose the color. We don't want the trim to look yellow against the window frames but will the pure white be too bright in our kitchen? Also our painter said the grab on the cabinets will show. How will that look? Should we do a glaze? He keeps telling us we should buy we don't like an antique look and would a glaze do that? Please help!!

A very light glaze will only soften the cabinets.

Check out the blog by Maria Killam for some great advice on picking colors and whites. She says you should go with a creamy white if you have earth tones in your tile or counter and white for blacks and brighter colors. You need to take fixed elements like counters, floors etc. into consideration.

If you are concerned about the window white why not match that whit for your cabinets. You can play with your backsplash once the cabinets are painted.

Wow, from the "19 hours ago" note on your post, "tomorrow" is already today. I second the advice to check out Maria Killam's posts on white ktichens (her favorite) and choosing white (maybe get your painter to take a look with you). She is a Color Expert and gives great advice with lots of examples. GOOD LUCK!
