How to Choose Colors for Your Cabinet Refacing

If the color or exterior look of your cabinets doesn’t quite resonate with your design dreams, the idea of kitchen cabinet refacing might be catching your attention. This creative process involves the strategic removal and replacement of cabinet faces and doors. Unlike the more extensive replacement of the entire cabinet structure, refacing offers a budget-friendly approach while delivering a fresh, rejuvenated ambiance. Pivotal to this process is the selection of the right color scheme to revamp your refaced cabinets. Here are some tips to help you select a color.

Consider the Overall Design of the Kitchen

Take the time to consider the overall design or aesthetic of your kitchen. One of the most common mistakes people make is selecting a color they like, but not considering how that color will work with the other materials in the space, such as the flooring, countertops, and lighting. You need to keep in mind that you are trying to design your kitchen as a unit, to ensure that everything is cohesive and complements each other.

Take Into Account the Size and Lighting in Your Space

It’s also important to take into account the size of your kitchen and the lighting in the space when selecting a color for kitchen cabinet refacing. Lighter-colored cabinets are perfect in smaller kitchens or kitchens without a lot of natural light. Light colors make a space feel larger and brighter. Dark colors are a fantastic choice if your space feels spacious and you would rather it feel more intimate. You can affect the way your kitchen looks by selecting the right color for your cabinets.

Think About Cleaning and Care

As you go about selecting a color for your cabinets, consider how the cabinets will hold up in your space. One of the biggest misconceptions is that white cabinets get dirty faster. In reality, dark colors can often show things like fingerprints, dust, or food residue. A recent study found that about 47% of millennials are likely to choose white kitchen cabinets. And, according to Remodeling by JLC, only about 41% of baby boomers will. Make sure to do your research and select a color that is easy for you to care for and clean.

Kitchen cabinet refacing allows you to alter the appearance of your cabinets, without completely replacing them. This helps to keep your remodeling or renovation budget under control.
