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

“Today I received a beautiful bouquet from your company. It was totally unexpected and very much appreciated--a lovely surprise. Also today, your crew finished my job. I am so pleased with all their fine work. Richard is absolutely amazing and a total delight to work with. He was also extremely helpful during the paint color process. The interior work in my home far exceeded my expectations. A big thank you to you and the crew for an outstanding job. Thank you, thank you for a terrific job!”

“Richard and crew have been great, for sure. As much as I look forward to having the job done and my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them around. You should feel really good about how they represent your company.”

— Jessica Dodson

“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”

“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.”

“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 walk through 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.”

“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.”

“I want to express my thanks for a job well done. The rooms look great and there is no problem with any marks on the all the trim, floor, carpet, etc. The paint job is lovely. I also want to express my thanks for the level of professionalism the foreman showed in running the job. He was very attentive to any changes I needed to make, was extremely careful in getting the faux paint color and effect correct. Thanks so much for a job well done.”

“Hello Matt,Just another notice of thanks to your wonderful crew, Rigoberto, Javier and John. They did fantastic work, with Rigo providing meticulous and conscientious attention to the details and excellent woodwork finishing, as evidenced by the beautiful fireplace. Javier did a fantastic job in the bathroom especially, it looks "brand new," and John always does quality work, both with the interior and exterior. I can tell they care about what they do. Rigo's "punch out" was very thorough, too. I will call again when I need some more work and will definitely recommend your company and fine crew. I also felt as a homeowner, I could leave my house in their good hands during the day and that took a lot of worry from me, they were honest, prompt and reliable. They were also very kind, respectful and clean in their work, very professional. Thank you.”

“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.”

“Charles finished yesterday and did a fantastic job. We really enjoyed meeting Charles and having him in our home. He is a great guy in addition to his attention to detail in his work, the protection of our floors, walls and furnishings, and his overall interaction with us both. I would be pleased to recommend him to any of my clients.”
