Painting your cupboards is about creating your own space

Planning your paint scheme

There are no set rules when it comes to painting your cupboards, but there are several different techniques you might like to try to create different ‘looks’ in your space:

Monochrome 

A Monochrome colour scheme is one in which the walls, woodwork and cupboards are all painted in the same colour.  Most cupboards are painted in an eggshell paint but other finishes can add interest too; gloss can add a contemporary edge creating an interesting contrast with our traditional cupboards. 


Monochrome schemes create a clean, contemporary effect

Tonal 

Another way of bringing unity to your kitchen is to create a tonal colour scheme by choosing two or three colours that work harmoniously together in your space. You might choose to use your main colour on the exterior of your cupboards with a complementary colour on the inside, or to highlight wall cupboards in a lighter accent colour to give the illusion of space.

Colour block

For the more adventurous, a colour block technique is a simple way to add interest to an otherwise plain room, colour blocking is when you split the whole room with a horizontal line with one colour above and another below.

Most paint suppliers offer sample pots and we’d recommend testing the colours you have chosen in your space before taking the plunge and buying your paint. Colour can look different throughout the day as the natural light changes, and into the evenings artificial lighting can create a different ambience entirely. Take a look at our Choosing your perfect kitchen colour guide for more advice on making the right colour choice for you.
