What’s the most popular look in cabinets right now?
“The most popular look right now is cabinetry that matches the trim in the rest of the house—most often white. We’re also being asked to create faux finishes with a ‘tea stain’ of green or chocolate on top of cream.”
What one mistake do homeowners make when painting cabinets?
“We’re often asked to create complicated finishes using a combination of several colors to create a marbling effect. This is a bad idea because kitchen cabinets take a beating and, as life happens to them, those custom finishes are going to be impossible to touch up.”
What advice do you have for homeowners who want to wake up old cabinets?
“Hire professionals to give you a professional-looking finish you can maintain yourself. Ask them for a simple, single-color finish then change out the hardware yourself.”
