This stunning remodel by Haven Design and Construction was the second-most saved kitchen on Houzz in 2018! Perimeter cabinets are Sherwin Williams SW 7005 “Pure White”, and the black island and range hood are Benjamin Moore BM 2133-10 “Onyx”. A perfect two-tone kitchen!
East Austin style, done to perfection! We painted these IKEA cabinets in Benjamin Moore’s “Backwoods”. Notice how the homeowner removed the extra upper cabinets and tile backsplash, to make this kitchen that much lighter and brighter.
A gorgeous, “updated traditional” kitchen, done in black and white. Notice how the homeowner tiled all the way up the wall! We painted the upper cabinets in a custom white, and the lowers in Benjamin Moore’s “Onyx”. The homeowner’s father hand-made the leaded-glass cabinet doors on the right!
Another stunning example of what an incredible difference cabinet painting (and walls!) can make. Here our Austin branch painted the upper cabinets in Sherwin Williams 6252 “Ice Cube”, and the lowers in SW 7602 “Indigo Batik”. And we love the blue glass subway tile backsplash!
One of the most dramatic transformations by Abode Interior Design! This hacienda-style Spanish kitchen was oversaturated with dated colors. Gina Roth of Abode brought us in to help update the whole space, cabinets and all, in this fresh, lovely white. Love the hammered copper sink and the two island countertops!
An excellent kitchen remodel by Troy Jessee Construction and Kate Kingman Interiors. We painted these cabinets in a lovely custom white lacquer. Furthermore, the brick floors and handmade tile backsplash give this kitchen a sense of history and authenticity we love!
Green and white cabinets! Our Austin color consultant Carlie Williamson helped this Hyde Park homeowner select Sherwin Williams’ “Alabaster” for the upper cabinets, and Benjamin Moore’s “Greenwich Village” for the lower cabinets, including the adorable island (an estate sale find). What a great example of what paint can do!
This entire house was painted in dark, outdated greens and burgundies. Also, it didn’t help matters that the cabinets were this heavy golden oak. We painted the walls in Benjamin Moore BM “Ballet White” and the cabinets in BM OC-45 “Swiss Coffee” – the perfect soft white for kitchens with a natural stone backsplash like this travertine.
This homeowner had already updated the counters and backsplash beforehand, but the new marble countertops and subway tile weren’t enough to give this kitchen the fresh, white look our client wanted. We painted the cabinets in Sherwin Williams SW 7005 “Pure White” – perfection! There’s another view of the cabinets on our San Antonio Cabinet gallery page.
This Lakeway home near Austin screamed “outdated Tuscan” style – especially the red stained cabinets. We painted them in Benjamin Moore HC-166 “Kendall Charcoal”, in a flat sheen (most cabinets are done in satin or semi-gloss). This deep, rich color looks stunning in a high gloss, but we love how the softness of the flat sheen gives this kitchen a custom, sophisticated style.
These cabinets were a very strong red tone that didn’t go at all with the homeowner’s light, fresh aesthetic. Austin interior design firm Triple Heart Design selected the Sherwin Williams color SW 9171 “Felted Wool”, which we painted on the cabinets in a soft, satin lacquer.
We love the visual impact of updating a backsplash like this homeowner did – it occupies so much vertical space, it’s the second-most impactful change you can make after painting your cabinets. For those, designer Julie Risman of the Inside Story Design selected Benjamin Moore’s BM OC-117 “Simply White”, which is just soft and warm enough to coordinate with the backsplash and countertops.
The new hexagonal backsplash tile in this kitchen, along with the classic white we painted on the cabinets, honor this historic home’s “fresh vintage” vibe. Carrying the tile all the way to the ceiling and casing out the window is a nice design touch.
Removing the heavy overhanging light fixture/overhead storage made a huge difference in this kitchen! So did painting the dark stained cabinets in Benjamin Moore’s BM OC-117 “Simply White” – a popular color with our kitchens!
These yellow pine cabinets were painted in Benjamin Moore BM OC-117 “Simply White”, the island in BM 1586 “Silver Mink”, and the walls in BM HC-172 “Revere Pewter”. In this case, the backsplash was also the original pine, so we painted that as well.
Rarely have we seen a kitchen look so completely orange! We painted the cabinets in Benjamin Moore’s BM OC-130 “Cloud White”, the island in BM CSP-85 “Tweed Coat”, and the homeowner installed a white subway tile backsplash (and carried it all the way to the ceiling above the sink, on our recommendation!).
These dated cabinets sure put the “gold” in “golden oak”. The homeowner wanted to retain the stained wood look. So rather than paint them a solid color, we toned the cabinets with sheer layers of dark tinted lacquer, to achieve the look of darker stained wood without the lengthy mess of having to strip the cabinets. Much better!
This homeowner wanted her cabinets glazed in a soft white, to soften the hard look of the wall of cabinets. The kitchen felt truly cave-like before, but painting the cabinets in an off-white (lighter than the desired final look), then glazing them with a soft gray-brown glaze, made it feel welcoming and open.
