Sometimes all it
takes is freshening up your kitchen cabinets with a new coat
of paint to give the entire kitchen a redecorated look. Don't
be afraid to play up a different color, you don't need to
stick with white or darker wood-color.
If you choose to
go with a bolder color, be sure it can be coordinated with
the room, whether it coordinates with a colored stripe in
the floor or is in the same color theme as the kitchen counter
top. And don't forget it is easier to start lighter and go
darker than it is to go lighter from darker.
If it is within
your budget, don't forget to spruce up the cabinets and drawers
with new handles, or see if the old ones can be repainted
If you are renting,
be sure you check with the landlord before repainting. You
don't want to paint them only to discover your fabulous blue
cabinets must be repainted white before you move out.
