Popular Kitchen Cabinet Paint Colors in the Bay Area

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”

“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

“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!”

“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

“I just wanted to thank you all for doing such a phenomenal job on our recent house painting. We are very happy with the outcome and can't say enough good things about the crew. Everyone working on the project was outstanding and made it a great experience. Thanks to everyone.”

— Daylan

“My entire experience with MB Jesse was very professional. The crew were very friendly and super accommodating of my ridiculous schedule and geriatric pets in the house. The finished product, which was pretty much my entire house, far exceeds my expectations. Would definitely work with them again!”

— Heather Jordan

“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!”

“I loved working with M.B. Jessee from start to finish on a relatively small paint job that grew a bit. I felt in very good hands from the moment Matt Jessee came out to give me the estimate and talk about my job. He was very easy to talk to and he handled my changes very well. Then the actual work done by Rigoberto and Mario was impeccable. They were neat and meticulous and the paint job looks beautiful. I could not have asked for more and when I did, they accommodated me 100%. I will not hesitate to call M.B. Jessee again and to refer them to friends.”

— Nancy Kurkjian

“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!”

“The completed 'Client Satisfaction Survey' we sent in only modestly reflects our total satisfaction with the work. As a retired small business owner, I compliment you on setting 'best practices' that are consistently followed. Everything described in your marketing materials was a reality! The crew is a super bowl team and our neighbors commented on how quiet they were. We are very happy to be a client of MB Jessee.”

— Richard

“We just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the work of MB Jessee Painting and your employees. Everything turned out beautiful. Our foreman was great! He was punctual, professional, neat and very accommodating ... and went the extra mile. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family.”

— Michelle & Rivers Gee

“In September, MBJessee finished painting two sides of our 3-story condominium building (six owners). We were impressed by the professionalism of the company and every one of its workers, Matt Jessee couldn't have been more helpful in planning the project. His painters were well-trained, easy to communicate with and eager to please. In addition to painting the stucco, they made extensive repairs on windows and frames, which will save us considerable money in the future. They finished earlier than anticipated, with as many as five men working on the job, and the scaffolding came down the next day. All of us were delighted with the results. Now my husband and I are looking forward to having MB Jessee paint our own apartment later this month. Matt and Gustavo (who will be our crew leader again) have explained how they will work to make the painting proceed smoothly while we're living here, and they have been endlessly patient with our protracted decision-making process. If you look at their website, you'll learn that MB Jessee is an exemplary company that takes good care of its workers as well as its customers, and contributes public service projects to the community. All in all, we can't recommend MB Jessee highly enough.”
