Considering that not all the spaces should be vivid and bright, you have perfect options for formal cabinets.
And if your kitchen cabinets are already painted (instead of being natural wood), then you have an additional reason to use latex paint. If you do not know what type of paint is already on your cabinets, then water-based latex formulas are the safest option—since oil-based paint wont adhere well over latex paint, but latex paint can bind to a surface treated with either type of paint.
Most cabinet doors still use a form of contoured design, in which frames and panels are constructed so that the cabinet faces are dimensional rather than flat. This raised panel design, such as is found in Shaker-style cabinets, gives a very traditional look. However, flat-panel doors, otherwise known as slab cabinet doors, are increasing in popularity, largely because they lend a modern look to any kitchen or bathroom.
A mistake many people make once they get black cabinets is that they don't have the correct lighting in their kitchen. If your lights aren't very bright or you prefer to have a darker kitchen, black cabinets aren't the best fit. This is because, coupled with dark lighting, dark cabinets will only make the whole space look a lot blander.
