Cabinet painting

Hi, I want to paint my kitchen cabinets. I like the monochromatic look. I have my walls painted in harvest brown and I want to paint my cabinets in a slightly darker color. Can you recommend a color.? With my lighting, the harvest brown has a greenish brown color.

Kare,

 

You can simply increase the formula of the Harvest Brown. Your HD Associate can increase it at 25% increments. I would start at +25% and increase it slowly. I am not sure that only 25% will give you enough definition. You don't want it to just look like a mismatch. Of course, the inreased gloss of the cabinets, as opposed to the walls,  will make it more promenant too.

 

Increaseing the colorant will make it somewhat more green looking. If it gets too green, a little dab of red will brown it up. There is actually no green in the  formula. The green occurs whenever lamp black is combined with one of the yellow family.

 

Hope this has helped.
