They say the kitchen is the heart of the home. My kitchen was a big part of the reason I bought my house. I love the miles of counter space, the huge two-section sink, the dishwasher. I do not love my cabinets. The previous owner redesigned the house and did a wonderful job, except with the kitchen cabinets. I’ve got drawers that won’t open, cabinets that are useless because of their size and depth and the wood looks cheap. There’s little I can do about the drawers and cabinet size, but I’ve decided to paint the cabinets.
Right now my kitchen is almost overwhelmingly black. Black tile on the floors and counters, black appliances, black sink. I’ve used touches of red in my kitchen, but painting all my cabinets that color would be overwhelming. Instead I think I’ll take inspiration from my barstools and paint the cabinets a soft cream color. I’ll accent it with nice hardware and my kitchen should have an entirely new look! I think the cream will really brighten the room and I can add detail in black and possibly red.
I went to Lowe’s the other night for paint cards. Any advice?
