Cabinets and Color


Getting creative with color is the best way to find new ways to liven up a space to fit your style. If your style is more monochromatic, you can always minimally incorporate Viva Magenta and its accent colors in several ways. Painting your cabinets is a great way to add some color, as wood, wood-laminate and metal cabinets usually can be repainted without difficulty. We also offer cabinets in a variety of colors that can brighten up a space. Utilizing two tone cabinets is an option when it comes to remodeling that allows you to have pops of color in your cabinets shown below. Also shown below are a few ideas of cabinet accent colors to utilize with Viva Magenta.



You might also add color to a kitchen or closet space by painting the island cabinets an accent color like Viva Magenta to create a beautiful focal point in the room.
