Sherwin Williams Retreat

Cream is classic, timeless, and always a favorite for kitchens that recieve a good amount of natural light. Soft and inviting , this one comes highly requested. Bejamin Moore’s Natural Cream is a beautiful creamy beige paint color. Compared to other “cream” paint colors, Natural Cream is on the warmer side of the scale, leaning more towards khaki or light brown. Natural Cream pairs beautifully with wood accents, gold hardware, and olive or dark green.

One of the very few shades you can truly say “use it anywhere!” is Sherwin-Williams Repose Gray. From cabinets to walls to the exterior of your house, Repose gray is truly versatile in use. If you are comparing this color to other shades of gray, you will notice that it is not a full-on true gray. Repose Gray actually has a taupe-ish base to it, making it a medium gray with  brown, greige and a little bit of blue to cool it down. Whether your kitchen sees a lot of sun, or not, this color is perfect for any kitchen – large or small.

When you ask a Professional Painting Contractor what their favorite blue to paint cabinets is, 9 times out of 10 they will say Sherwin-Williams Slate Tile. This beautiful blue/gray cabinet paint color has so much depth and is one of the most versatile darker colors in the deck. The most common place you will see this gorgeous hue is on kitchen islands and bathroom vanities – but we love when our clients go all out and paint all of their cabinets blue!

Be Dramatic with Benjamin Moore’s Midnight Oil! Believe it or not, this cabinet paint color is considered a deep blue-black according to Benjamin Moore. Although it reads black to the average eye, it has strong blue undertones that come out of hiding when used in rooms that receive a lot of daylight (or natural light).

Midnight Oil is a great choice for those who do not want to fully commit to painting their cabinets, island, or vanity black.

A MacFarland Painting classic. Sherwin-Williams Alabaster is probably the most common color to get your cabinets painted. From professional cabinet painters everywhere, we can all admit that Alabaster is the highest requested cabinet paint color. This is because it is a safe choice. It is not a stark white, and it is not a heavy cream. Perfectly simple, and perfectly white.

A vintage vibe. Next time you think of painted green kitchen cabinets, think Backwoods by Benjamin Moore. This masculine shade of green is sure to strike the eyes of anyone who walks in the room.

Green cabinets can be fun and quirky, but also serious and sophisticated; and Backwoods is a great example of what sophisticated looks like.

“I want white kitchen cabinets – not cream or ivory, just white.” As professional cabinet painters, we hear this a lot for clients who are selling their home, or looking to make their kitchen feel bigger and brighter. This is when we recommend Sherwin-Williams Pure White. Pure White is best described as a simple white with little to no undertones. It is not a blinding white, and not a creamy white either – perfectly balanced between bright and soft.

As one of our 7 stock colors, you can view pure white painted cabinets in our showroom located in Livonia, MI.

It is hard to go wrong with blue! Do you love the look of Sherwin-William’s Waterloo? Stop in our showroom to see it for yourself! Waterloo is one of 7 cabinet paint colors that we have in our showroom for clients to see, because we love it so much!

Similar to Slate Tile, but without the hints of gray, Waterloo is a blue-green paint color that leans strongly towards blue than green, depending on the light. The more natural light that you have, the more green will show through. Many choose this shade for an accent piece – such as a kitchen island – but if you feel bold, go all the way!

Sherwin-Williams Amazing Gray is a warm, neutral greige cabinet paint color that is perfect for kitchens that see a lot of natural light. With the warmth of beige, and the cool side of gray, Amazing gray is a great choice to pair with any color. For a bold pop of color, try pairing it with deep greens and browns. For a more neutral, sophisticated look, pair with white, medium to deep blues, or gold accents.
