The pros of painting cabinets

Here are some of the benefits of painted cabinets:

Offers a clean aesthetic

Homeowners with blue kitchen cabinets can paint their cabinets instead of buying new ones. The result of the painting is a crisp look. It might not be as good as a new set of cabinets but it will bring a sleek finish that you will be happy about.

The paint needs to be done perfectly for it to give a clean aesthetic. You should avoid DIY if you don’t know how to do it perfectly.

More colorful

 If you are looking for the excitement that comes with color, then you should opt for painted cabinets. You can always make the surfaces fresh and exciting with new colors. You can transform your blue kitchen cabinets into exciting attractions.

Paint sticks well on wood and gives a good look. It is a perfect opportunity to customize your kitchen’s look.

Different shades

You can change the shades of the main color that you have chosen for your cabinetry. This is an option that you cannot explore when you are buying new cabinets. But you must be careful to find the perfect mix to get the best look. You can check out ideas on Pinterest to get the best look.

Cons of painted cabinets

A bit expensive than stained cabinets

When you compare painted cabinets and stained cabinets, painting becomes expensive. It is not necessarily a cheap option that you are imagining. You should only choose painted cabinets if you love their final look.

A lot of work

You will spend a lot of time researching and getting the work done. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that you will get it right if you go the DIY way. You can find that it is easy to buy ready-made blue kitchen cabinets than trying to paint yours.

Good morning Rono. I like blue but have never had blue cabinets. Never had the space where blue would work. Like the kitchen in your photo. Enjoy your day.
