Now that we are officially over a month into 2019, the design trends for the year are really starting to solidify. One that continues to come up everywhere - from websites to magazines to Pinterest boards - is dark kitchen cabinetry. According to Real Simple, all the experts agree that dark colors are making a big comeback this year. The whites and grays that dominated the kitchen design scene are taking a back seat to these bold, beautiful hues. Everything from matte black to navy to forest green will be huge this year, and as predictions note, well beyond 2019. Just because something is “on trend” does not mean it isn’t timeless, and when you take a closer look at these rich colors popping up in kitchens big and small, it is easy to see why.
While going dark in the kitchen color palette might seem like an intimidating or extreme choice, in practice it makes a statement without being outlandish. You can ease your way into the darker color options by only going dark on the island - still making a statement, but not applying that color throughout. Additionally, there are design decisions that make the dark color cohesive with its surroundings - including flooring choices, backsplash changes, countertop selections, and wall and trim colors. An incredible asset we offer at The Coatings Authority is a partnership with our sister company, The Home Authority. When additional remodel decisions start to feel overwhelming or confusing, we are able to offer the expertise of over 2 decades in renovation experience through THA, ensuring that the process does not take a turn into stress-overload.
Another absolutely critical factor in putting a dark custom coating on your cabinets is ensuring that coating is applied correctly. When applying dark paint, the surface absolutely must be prepped properly so that the finish is smooth. Brush marks can make or break the look of a dark cabinet color, and be the difference between beautifully done and DIY gone wrong. Our AUTHORICOAT process is multi-faceted, including the best in surface preparation, a proprietary paint blend and coatings application method, and an end result that will stand up to daily wear and tear. When you are in the kitchen, or anywhere in your house for that matter, you want to be able to focus on what you are doing and the tasks you are trying to accomplish without concerning yourself with gently navigating around your cabinetry. A truly quality coating can hold up to constant use, and stand the test of time. This is the fundamental reason behind our developing the AUTHORICOAT process - to provide a product that not only looks great on day one, it looks just as beautiful years down the road.
When you work with The Coatings Authority, you can rest assured we will not only provide quality, we will complete your project within an incredibly efficient timeframe that will allow you to enjoy your transformed space as quickly as possible. We have a step-by-step process that we share with you right from the start, allowing you to understand and follow along with what we are doing throughout.
