Redecorating your kitchen does not have to be a daunting or expensive project, contrary to popular belief. In fact, with just a few simple changes you can breath new life into an old, outdated kitchen. One of the best ways to do this is to paint the kitchen cabinets. If the cabinets are in good condition, then painting them is an effective and easy way to make the whole kitchen look completely different. Many people prefer a neutral color for the cabinets, especially if you plan on selling your home and want to attract the most number of buyers, so I have compiled a list of 5 great neutral paint colors for kitchen cabinets. With these neutral colors, you can thing bring in pops of color in other areas of the kitchen such as on the walls and in the accessories.

We love the cabinets with the antique white on them. Can you tell us who’s Antique White paint that is like porter paints or sherwin Williams etc.
The website where that particular photo came from did not list the paint color, but Sherwin Williams does have a beautiful antique white called SW 6119 Antique White. If you plan on painting your cabinets, I highly suggest getting samples of a few different antique whites and sampling them in patches on the cabinets to see which one looks best with the lighting in your kitchen before committing to one. Good luck!
I love the light gray cabinets & want to paint my kitchen cabinets the same color. Any idea of the name of the color or who makes it?
Those cabinets are so beautiful! Unfortunately, I’m not sure what the exact color is and couldn’t find it at the source, but it looks like Light French Gray by Sherwin Williams is very close: https://www.sherwin-williams.com/homeowners/color/find-and-explore-colors/paint-colors-by-family/SW0055-light-french-gray/#/0055/?s=coordinatingColors&p=PS0
I’d suggest going to a local paint store and getting some small cans of a few shades to try on tester boards, so you can see how they look when dry and how they react to the lighting in your kitchen.
Best of luck to you!
