  • Help needed!, I purchased this home recently, but the kitchen is not my personal taste. Although the oak cabinets are really nice, I think they are dated. I am considering painting them an antique white or staining them a much darker color.
This is my first home and money is tight at times, but a couple thousand is doable. Is it a sin to mess with perfectly good cabinets? Should I focus my efforts elsewhere?  I also want to paint the walls and replace the countertops. Whatever I do, I would like any alterations to be as "timeless" as possible. Thanks in advance for any pointers! , Kitchens Design

  • 80's Oak Kitchen Comes Into This Century, My kitchen was originally built in 1988.  The only thing that had been updated when we purchased it a year ago was the white tile countertops (which a previous owner replaced with granite.)  

I updated the lighting, fixtures, hardware, cabinets, and backsplash and appliances.  I did 100% of the work myself (all while holding down the job of stay-at-home-mom with 2 kids under 6)

The total cost of the project (including the appliances) was $3500.  More detailed information about the transformation can be found at, Kitchens  Design

  • Help! What Color Should I Paint My Cabinets???, I'd like to paint my builder grade oak cabinets but I have no idea what color.  I wanted to do off-white but my appliances and trim are white and I want some contrast.  I thought about black but I'm afraid that's too dark.  I'm open to color but I want to keep the resale appeal high and not too taste-specific.  I'm open to glazing one color over another but I don't know what colors to chose.  The hardware floor and countertops are new; I'd like to keep these!, Kitchens Design

  • From Boring to Brilliant, The old kitchen was a standard L-shaped layout with oak veneer cabinets and laminate countertops.  The entire kitchen (and adjacent dining/living areas) was gutted.  The old laundry closet was demoed to make space for the large open concept kitchen.  New flooring, cabinets, countertops, backsplash, and lighting were installed.  The finishing touch was the design of the new stair rail - now book case - that matches the kitchen cabinets and feels like a piece of furniture now.  Makes the whole open concept first floor feel like home.    Did I mention that I did most of this from Afghanistan?  Ha! Doing a remodel from half a world away was quite the experience!  , Kitchens Design

  • Should we paint the cabinets?, UPDATE! Sooo glad we did not paint the cabinets!!

The cabinets are in good shape but are in need of an update. We've changed the hardware but they still need something. We're thinking about painting the cabinets a creamy beige color and use a dark glaze to fill in the grooves in the cabinet. The same kind of finish you see in high end cabinetry. I thought about painting the vent hood black to match the island. We've looked at pictures of kitchens with black cabinets on the bottom and a different color on the top cabinets, but my husband didn't like it., Kitchens Design

  • 23 year-old Kitchen Ready for surface update!, Great large Kitchen with 20 cabinets and 14 drawers. skuffed Oak floor, white washed cabinets (sigh) and tile counters and no backsplash and very little wall space. Want to restain or paint cabinets and put undermounted stainless sink, and new surface for countertops. Windows face east. Want to put in 2 ovens and micro and new cook top. Current cooktop in island is Jenn Air down draft. 5 yrs ago we ran the gas line so it is stubbed off below our cook top.  I would like the Island cabinets stained or painted very dark and then I am not sure what to do color wise on the rest in the kitchen. My husband and I would like a solid surface counter and on the lighter side than a black or dark brown. We both enjoy earth colors., Kitchens Design

  • Painted and Glazed Cabinets .. How to Step by Step, If you love painted cabinets with that "Old World" feel see how I achieved the look in my kitchen.  I can't however  take all of the credit for this remodel.  Without my sister-in-law I could not have achieved all of this in 1 week.  Thank You could never convey how grateful I am for her help and how much fun I had with her that week.  Take a look I have tried to break it down day by day I hope this will inspire you to try this on your own.  If you don't have a sister-in-law I rent mine., Kitchens Design

  • 80's kitchen needs an update, The finish on the solid oak kitchen cabinets is 26 years old and is looking pretty sad.  Since I am going to go to all the effort to refinish them, I am also thinking of changing the stain color and repainting the walls.  I will also close in the soffit grids, add recessed canned lights with under-counter LED lights, and dress up the soffits with crown molding.  I would like to tear out the soffits, but that would mean I have to redo the ceiling and I don't want to deal with all of the plaster dust--so that is off the "to do" list. I have to keep the appliances, counter top, back splash and floor.  DH has threatened to tear out the cabinets and replace them with cheap contractor grade cabinets if I even think of painting the oak. So, no paint on the cabinets! I was leaning towards a reddish cherry or mahogany stain, but it is a galley kitchen with no windows and, with the black appliances, I thought it might be too dark.  (Original window is now a pass through to the family room addition.)  Any suggestions for stain and paint colors?  Back splash is a natural tile; floor is a pale terra cotta tile.  Counter is a neutral Corian., Kitchens Design
