3 Trendy Kitchen Cabinet Color Ideas | Bay Area Kitchen Painting

Are you longing to cook up a new look in your kitchen? Maybe the cabinets are hungry for a new flavor! Painting your kitchen cabinets is a fantastic way to bring a fresh taste to the kitchen, transforming this central space so that it radiates energy, style, and class. White kitchen cabinets have become a standard, and they certainly do give a classy, clean, airy appearance. But are there other color ideas for painting your kitchen cabinets? Absolutely!

Designers and homeowners alike are trying out all kinds of creative colors for kitchen cabinets in the San Francisco Bay area. Some of them are overwhelming or outlandish and never catch on (hot pink, for example…), but a few colors are really taking off! Without further introduction, here are three of the most popular colors for painting kitchen cabinets here in the San Francisco Bay area.

Black Kitchen Cabinets

Undoubtedly, this is a bold move. It is unexpected and arresting, yet it has an undeniable appeal. With a glossy finish, and paired with a light-colored marble or granite, black kitchen cabinets make a fantastic impression.

Sage or Cedar Cabinets

One of the most sought-after colors in discerning homes now is sage green (some call it cedar green), a beautiful shade of green that leans towards neutral. It is a natural, pleasing color, easy to match with a wide variety of options. It looks fantastic when paired with butcher-block or other wood-based countertops, or with stone surfaces (either black or white).

Painting Cabinets Gray

Some people love a middle option. White is perhaps too common, but black too bold; why not go halfway with gray? There are countless shades to choose from, whether you want light or dark, leaning towards blue or towards charcoal. Don’t think this in-between option is a compromise in style; it is sharp, trendy, and definitely a winner!

Customer Reviews

“I had my wooden kitchen cabinets painted white. Anabal and Danielle were doing the job. I have nothing but praise for them. They came on time, cleaned up every day, were respective, friendly and helpful. If the rest of Jessee's crew are as great as Anabal and Danielle, this company will go far.”

“Julie,Just to let you know I am very appreciative of your crew catching the plumbing/mold problem. It was very astute of them. I wanted to let you know that again your crew has done excellent work here, please pass this along to Mr. Jessee. There are some bumps in the road here, but the painting and your crew has not been one of them. Their work is the only thing going right currently, and this crew is very nice and respectful. It is much appreciated. Thank you again.”

“High quality work from a pleasant and qualified staff. Thank you!”

— Paul Markovich

“I just wanted to send you an email to say that John did such a great job over here today. He is truly a hard worker. He has the perfect balance of friendliness, honesty, and professionalism. I trust him. He takes the time to do the job to the best of his ability and that is what sets him (and your company) apart from the competition. He didn't make me feel rushed. He really made me feel like our job was the most important thing in the world. Thanks again!”

— Jo

“I can't say enough about how courteous and professional my foreman was. He was on time every morning and arrived cheerful and ready to go. He is highly organized and very thoughtful. He was extremely careful and respectful when moving my belongings - a mature professional.”

— Nora Robinson

“In all the years I've worked with MB Jessee, I'm always so impressed by your crews. They are so respectful of everything--you never even know they're there! Except that the paint looks amazing when they're gone. We've had one showing of our home and already have an offer. I'm sure it is because the paint looks so beautiful.”

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

“MB Jessee just finished our exterior and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The foreman (Pedro) and lead painter (Ricardo) were incredible to work with: they communicated scheduling clearly, Ricardo was a joy to be around every day, the showed up early every day, were incredibly tidy and did great paint work. The final walkthrough experience was incredible. Pedro pointed out items I missed demonstrating a clear desire to complete another quality project. I highly recommend them. As others have noted they definitely aren't the cheapest but you quickly realize that you're getting what you pay for. The 3-year guarantee is also a nice touch since there are likely touch-up items that will show up after the job is done.”

“The kitchen looks NEW! You guys are amazing.”

“The entire MB Jessee team is courteous, efficient and professional. From scheduling and estimating to the crew managers and crew, they all did an excellent job on a small (but complicated) two room project in my house. I'm already thinking about getting them scheduled for the next project in the spring.”

— Cari Cheney

“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”
