Adding splashes of color to your home can make it feel bright and cheery and make it seem more personal. Vibrantly patterned furniture paired with outstanding accent pieces can help lift the vibe of any room. Also, there’s no better way to set the tone of a room than by selecting paint to impress. So if you choose to express yourself through your home decor and wall paint, why not carry that over to your cabinetry?
It can be easy to play it safe when it comes to painting the color of your kitchen cabinets white or even sticking with a light-toned stained wood; there’s no rule stating that you can’t be bold with your choices of color. Although, it can also depend on your housing situation. If you are looking to flip a home or just put your house on the market, then it could make more sense to keep your palette to neutral shades, as this can be more pleasing to potential homebuyers, according to HGTV. However, if you are purchasing or already living in your forever home, then there are no limits to how creative you can get with your personal style. Bring out those lemon yellows, luscious lavenders, or outrageous oranges if it’s what brings you joy. For some colorful advice when deciding on a kitchen cabinet paint for your next cooking space, the host of the HGTV series “My Lottery Dream Home,” David Bromstad has a reason as to why you should tickle it pink.
Why you should choose pink for your next kitchen cabinets
While hosting “My Lottery Dream Home,” host David Bromstad has the fortunate job of helping those who have just struck it big find their fantasy forever homes. Although he does a great job of aiding the lottery winners in choosing sensible homes within their budget, that doesn’t mean that they have to be boring, and there’s no easier way to make a room pop than with a vibrant paint color. In an interview with Apartment Therapy, Bromstad says, “Personally, I love to add color to my kitchen by painting the cabinets.” But we’re not talking about beige or some subtle shade of blue. Instead, he suggests that pink can be a bold and beautiful choice for your cabinetry.
By balancing a blush pink color with some neutral backsplash, you’re able to bring out your personality in your kitchen, which according to Bromstad, is “not gonna cost you an arm and a leg, and it’s definitely going to make a huge impact.” If you feel like hot pink isn’t your cup of tea, you can choose a more mellow pinkish hue without it going over the top. Pink can be the perfect color when going for a retro kitschy kitchen vibe and would play well with subway tile backsplash or floors. Even if you are leaning into an industrial contemporary style that focuses on gray or black, introducing a soft pink tone can bring warmth and balance, as per Real Homes.
