Avoid the builder-grade cabinet look by getting creative with your cabinet choices. Go with a two-tone effect in your kitchen by selecting one of two approaches to get the look:High and low two-tone effect. Use one color on your lower cabinets and a different color on your upper cabinets. To create a fresh, lasting look, stick to complementary colors. If you find that you are color-challenged, use a deeper, richer shade on the lower cabinets, and a much lighter shade of the same color or white for the top cabinets.Actual two-tone. Instead of mixing and matching color cabinets, select cabinets that have a two-tone look to them.
If a surface has already been painted and the paint is in good, clean condition, it likely will not need priming. Unpainted drywall, bare wood, and painted surfaces in poor condition should be primed. Apply the primer with the roller on large areas and with the brush on areas too small to accommodate the width of the roller. Roll the Large Areas.
If you are unsure which choice would best suit your kitchen, ask for numerous different paint swatches or cabinet door options before you install your new cabinets. Watch the light play on the different cupboards until you find the shade which suits your kitchen.
