Do you love the layout of your kitchen but are a little bored with your current cabinets? There’s no need to replace them when you can give them a whole new look with a fresh coat of paint! With so many great colors to choose from though, deciding on a color can be overwhelming. Will you still love the color in a few years? If you decide to sell your home in the near future, will someone else appreciate your color choice?

To help you settle on the perfect paint color for your kitchen cabinets we’ll look at three great options that will look just as good now as they will five years from now and won’t scare away potential home buyers.

Who doesn’t love a white kitchen? It is a clean, classic look for cabinetry that has already stood the test of time. White cabinets coordinate well with almost any wall color and look fantastic with a variety of countertops. The only disadvantage to white cabinets is that their pristine surface shows off every smudges and drip. This color choice might not be for you if cleaning up after spills on a daily basis will leave you frustrated.

There is something truly sophisticated about kitchen cabinets painted gray. This color is a more recent trend in kitchens, but we think it will soon be as classic as white cabinets. Select a medium or dark gray paint for a dramatic finish, especially when paired with bronze or brass hardware. Paint your cabinets a lighter gray for all the bright and airy qualities of a white kitchen but with the added perk of greater stain forgiveness.

Almost as popular as white, black painted cabinets are a dramatic look for any kitchen. Paint them in a semi- or high-gloss finish if your kitchen lacks natural light and be sure to incorporate multiple light sources.
