Cabinet Painting and Kitchen Makeovers in Springdale, Ohio
Is your kitchen overdue for an update? Cabinet painting is an easy way to give your outdated kitchen a whole new look at a fraction of the cost of a full kitchen remodel!
The Typical Springdale Home
Many residents of Springdale live in brick one-story ranch homes. The ranch is characterized by an open floor plan, low-pitched roof, large windows, and a minimalist aesthetic.
Associated with simplicity, comfort, and a casual lifestyle, the ranch was innovative in it's heyday, and remains one of America's signature architectural home designs.
Pros and Cons of a Ranch Kitchen
On the plus side, your classic ranch kitchen opens into the living room.
The uninterrupted sightline is helpful for families, and welcoming to guests.
Generally, a ranch kitchen receives abundant light from windows, as well as from the open living room.
And there's usually easy access from the kitchen to the back yard through sliding glass doors.
But, the open floor plan isn't so enjoyable if your kitchen cabinets, countertops, and island aren't in the best condition. You might even hesitate to invite friends and family to visit.
Easy Updates for Ranch Kitchens
Interior Kitchen Painting
The first fast and affordable update to consider is painting the walls and ceiling. Choose two colors and you can make the space look larger by how the paint is applied.
A lighter color on the ceiling creates the feeling that the ceiling is higher.
A lighter color paint on the lower half of walls, or wainscoting, makes a room feel wider.
The room will look deeper if you paint the ceiling and back wall in a darker color.
Paint Colors for Ranch Kitchens
Neutrals: It's easy to add a pop of color when your kitchen wall backdrop is a neutral color.
For a recent ranch kitchen painting project in Indian Hill, the homeowners chose Canvas Tan for the living room and kitchen walls, and Virtual Taupe for the kitchen cabinets. The island was painted in deep brown Black Fox. With the addition of dark blue gray Waterloo in the front door entry, the results were stunning!
Appreciated for their sophisticated understatement, white, greige and gray are appropriate if you're putting a house up for sale.
Warm Colors: Favorites of food establishments, restaurants often feature the colors red and yellow. These warm shades stimulate appetite and nurture conversation. Tip: If you'd like to add a warm dash but stay close to neutral, try Frosted Café, a light pink-tinged neutral on walls, Atrium White on upper cabinets, and Smokestack Gray a deep green-gray for lower cabinets and the island.
Cool Colors: Greens and blues are trending in modern kitchens. A distinguishing feature of the ranch home is it's integration with nature. The environment is brought indoors through windows and sliding glass doors. And the house's simple horizontal layout allows for more yard space, with privacy in the back yard. Particularly suited to ranch style kitchens, blues and greens make a lovely segue to the natural world just outside your sliding glass door.
If your ranch kitchen is typical, you get good lighting, which means you can go bold with your kitchen interior painting. Because the kitchen probably opens to the living room, you'll want to coordinate the paint in both rooms for a cohesive look. Don't worry; while we're painting your kitchen, we're happy to paint the living room, or all the rooms in your house.
The ranch style is identified with simplicity, but it's easy to express your personal flair with your paint choices. Our cabinet painters will paint your kitchen any color scheme you desire, without limitations!
Another popular upgrade is glass cabinet door inserts.
Other Kitchen Upgrades
While we're painting your walls and cabinets, is there anything else you'd like?
What would you think about replacing the laminate countertop with stone? Take a trip to our local slab yard, and personally select the unique quartz countertop crown for your kitchen. We'll handle the fabrication and installation of the countertop while we're on your painting project.
Another natural material that works beautifully in a ranch kitchen is hardwood flooring. It connects the kitchen with the yard beyond the windows. Hardwood floor installation is one of our many services.
Many homeowners use the tile backsplash as a focal point that ties together the colors of the kitchen. Color, shape, size, and application options are endless. We're happy to help you make decisions about a kitchen backsplash.
How about adding soft-close cabinet hinges? They don't show from the outside like mid-century hinges. Plus they're whisper quiet and prevent pinching of fingers. This is also a perfect opportunity to swap out your kitchen drawer and cabinet hardware with new pulls, knobs or bars. Updating the kitchen sink or adding the functionality of a high-tech faucet might be the detail that delights you the most!
