Tired cupboard doors have the power to turn you away from the kitchen and go out to eat instead. Luckily, the reverse is also true. Repainting kitchen cabinets is a fast track to a sparkling kitchen revamp with a contemporary feel. When you use Dulux Cupboard Paint you won’t need to prime them before painting, so the process is fuss-free. Plus, the durable, hard wearing finish is up to the task of combatting wear and tear.
Now that you know how easy they’ll be to paint, let’s talk colour schemes! A cool white will freshen things up in an instant, while warm neutrals or pretty pastels introduce a cosy, traditional feel. To make a statement, go bold with blocks of different shades in the same colour family, like Sumptuous Plum, Berry Smoothie and Mulberry Burst. Simply painting two or three cupboard fronts could make a difference and greys bring a large dose of sophistication, while working with most other colours.
For any glass-fronted cupboards, try painting the inside in a different colour to the outside, transforming it into a cabinet of curiosities. If your cupboard fronts really are beyond salvaging, go ahead and rip them off. Use the same technique and paint the inside for an open-shelving look that adds to your overall design.

A few small tweaks are often all that’s needed for a kitchen revamp that’s worthy of its role as the hub of your home.
