Kitchen Refresh: Repaint or Renovate?

Found yourself stuck with a dingy, out of date kitchen? Renovations can be pricey, and can take a lot of time. With the magic of paint, a new color and a few touch ups, your kitchen will be looking new in no time! A fresh coat of paint can save homeowners a lot of time and money, by giving a space a fresh, updated look without the hassle and cost of a complete remodel. 

The cost to repaint a kitchen is typically one half or one third of the price it would be to renovate it. This is a huge savings! But, where is that paint best used? Start with your kitchen cabinets. These are one of the most common items that individuals want to change in their kitchen, as cabinet trends go out of style quickly. They’re also one of the first things you see when you look at a kitchen. Go classic with crisp white, or modern with a matte black. If you want your cabinets to look more like natural wood, talk to your contractor about the type of stain that can help you achieve that look. For something more unique, you could choose a muted color such as sea foam green or blue-grey, as a subtle but strong introduction of color.

Next, the walls. Besides just changing the color, many people don’t notice how dirty their walls get overtime. The paint on trim and baseboards begin to chip, and the color starts to look dull. For kitchens, we typically recommend choosing a light, neutral color that will reflect light and help with visibility. White, cream, tan, gray, as well as light yellow, blues, and greens are all great choices. Talk to your contractor for advice on choosing a color palette that will work well together! 

Once the hard decision making is over, it’s time for you to sit back and relax while the professionals get to work. In the matter of a few weeks, your kitchen will be looking bright and refreshed, for a fraction of the cost!
