If you have big dreams of a kitchen renovation, but the budget for it is nowhere to be found, we have a trendy trick for you. Paint your kitchen cabinets! And no, we're not talking a new shade of stain or a coat of classic white (though nothing's wrong with that), we're talking bright, bold and whimsical hues that are sure to put a smile on your face every time you load the dishwasher. Painting your cabinets is an affordable DIY upgrade that will give your space an entirely new look and requires minimal investment. Depending on the size of your kitchen, you could even complete the revamp in a single day.

This pale mint shade is subtle enough to use on every cabinet and even the walls for a nearly monochromatic look, without feeling heavy or overdone.


Buttery Yellow 2

Soft, buttery yellow is the perfect shade for a cheerful farmhouse style kitchen. I love the contrast achieved with the dark knobs, handles and rods.


Sleek Charcoal 3

These dark grey cabinets matched with white countertops and backsplash offer a pop of color while still being classic--perfect, if you're not planning another redo in the near future.

Crisp Navy 4

If you want traditional without being predictable, navy cabinets paired with stainless steel or brass hardware is an excellent option. I love how crisp and clean this looks without being all over white.

If you love the look of painted cabinets, but don't want to make a huge commitment--or don't have the time or energy for it--painting the interiors of your open or glass-doored cabinets is a great way to add a splash of color.
