What is the best paint to use on kitchen cabinets? Popular Kitchen Cabinet Paint Colors in the Bay Area

Ready to give your kitchen a new look?

If your cabinets are in good condition overall, quality construction, and just need an updated style, cabinet painting could be the perfect solution. Plus, you can skip the messy, expensive, aggravating remodeling process. You need to get the heart of your home back in action as quickly as possible, right?

This leaves just one question…

What Color Should You Paint Your Kitchen Cabinets?

You Can’t Go Wrong with White

White still reigns supreme. And you might think it’s just a trend, but white kitchen cabinets have actually been around a long, long time. Sure, different stained finishes have been in and out of vogue too, but white is like subway tile: it’s always a safe choice.

But don’t worry! You aren’t stuck with just ONE white. You can choose a warmer option, if you prefer, with notes of beige or greige.

Have You Considered Gray Kitchen Cabinets?

Another solid choice, gray offers a lot of the versatility of white but without such a stark look. If you’re worried about keeping them clean, especially if you love cooking or have a busy kitchen, gray can offer a little extra peace of mind. It’s forgiving - no judgement.

Bold Cabinet Colors

We’ve seen deeper, bolder choices as well, like blues and greens. Solid candidates, but just be warned that some of these more vibrant options start to tip over into the “trendy” category. The paint could last longer than the style, depending on what you choose.

Neutral Cabinet Colors with a Bolder Accent

This is an option that we LOVE. Go white (or gray, if you prefer), but add a bolder accent color. It might be your kitchen island, lower cabinets, or maybe a kitchen wall. Take a look here for a real-life example of cabinets we painted in Alameda that are a perfect example of this palette done right.

Talk To a Painting Color Consultant

Honestly. Getting help from a professional colorist can make a huge difference, eliminating the guesswork and pointing you down the right path for your home. It’s worth getting some guidance if you aren’t positive about what you want (and even if you are!), just to make sure you see the project clearly from all perspectives.

Customer Reviews

“MB Jessee painters are stellar! As a designer I've worked with numerous companies over the years, and MB Jessee is a top-notch firm. From the first phone call to the final clean up, every person is courteous, professional, and hard working. The owner, Matt, is a charitable leader who has instilled his team with integrity and honesty providing the customer with a first class experience at a fair price with a paint job that is guaranteed to last. I highly recommend MB Jessee. Thank you Matt and your STAR crew-Daniel, Rigoberto, Vicente, Edy, Pedro, and Mario, for a job well executed! Cynthia Brian, ASID, Starstyle® Productions, llc”

“M.B. Jessee painted the exterior of my Spanish house over 9 years ago, and they did such an incredible job that they are still getting referrals from me today. The paint is holding up perfectly -- there is absolutely no peeling chipping or any other deterioration. I still remember that my final walk-through list consisted of items written on one side of a 3x5 index card (and I'm REAL picky about my house!) However, when Matt and I did that walk-through over HALF the items were no longer an issue, as his team had noticed them first and they had already been resolved.”

— JoAnn Newcomb

“Matt, Julie & Ricardo, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the three of you for the wonderful job you did in hosting the SFBA NARI Chapter Meeting on Wednesday evening. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Members and guests alike walked away with a truly positive experience. The "painter for a day" and the cookies in the paint cans were an absolute brilliant touch and received rave reviews. What a wonderful way to do such positive marketing. Thanks again for a truly memorable experience for our members and guests. You are valued as a NARI member.”

— Judy Tufo, SFBA NARI Executive Director

“Dear Matt,You must be so proud of your men! They were fantastic to have around. Polite, courteous and hardworking. I am so pleased with the outcome of our home--in fact, I couldn't be any more pleased than I am!”

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

“Our paint crew did a great job and the foreman, Gersson was exceptionally great to work with. He was always available to answer questions, good at problem-solving, very patient, kind, and highly professional with great customer service. We definitely recommend this company, and Gersson and his crew.”

“Just wanted to let you know that the crew was great to have around the house for the past two weeks. All three of them were professional, courteous, and attentive to my thoughts/concerns and were extremely knowledgeable. They paid great attention to the detail and it shows.”

— Mark & Roberta Gross

“Awesome work by highly experienced, professional painters. They were: Conscious about the amount of time it would take. Ours had a lot of pre-work and took 3 weeks. Accommodating when we added a few last-minute changes Understanding when a heatwave hit and we remove some of the plastic sheeting over windows, which they had to put back up the next day. Accessible, especially the on-site crew (Hi Jose & Victor!) -- always answering questions and checking in. The end result is a perfect paint job that makes our 94-year-old house look brand new. I would definitely hire MBJ again”

“The finish on my kitchen cabinets had failed, becoming tacky and grimy around the handles. M B Jessee gave me a reasonable quote, far below some others, and did an outstanding job, striping the original varnish and refinishing with a new lacquer finish. The cabinets look like new. Work was done 1 day faster than estimated. The crew was extremely hard-working, considerate, and neat. Highly recommend M B Jessee.”

“Edy and crew are hard at work. They are doing a great job. Very professional outfit you have. Your crew is a delight. You may use me for a reference!”

“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

“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.”
