Are Your Kitchen Cabinets Dated but You Don’t Have Thousands of Dollars for New?
Home Staging and Redesign Minneapolis, MN.
As a Designer and Home Stager I come across many kitchens that need updating. Many homeowners want to update their kitchens, either for gaining top dollar when selling or for their own enjoyment.
I can’t say it enough, “KITCHENS SELL HOMES”. Period.
A total kitchen update costs tens of thousands of dollars and if you are staying in your home it is okay, do that and spend the money. If you are selling you may be wondering the best place to spend your money to update the kitchen to receive the greatest return on your investment. Or you may be staying in your home and want to update but have limited funds and are wondering what you can.
I have a suggestion. Paint those dated cabinets! Yes it is okay to paint wood……trust me.
It’s an easy update that will cost fractions of what new cabinets would cost and is especially the way to go if the insides of your cabinets are in good shape.
Take a look at this kitchen. Nothing has been updated for at least 20 years. The homeowner did not want to invest the money for new cabinets or counter tops but wanted an updated look.
My suggestion? Paint the cabinets, change the hardward and buy stainless steel appliances.
As you can see I suggested a two tone look for the cabinets. Dark on the bottom, light on top that is fresh and modern.
The wall color was also selected to enhance the color of the cabinets and counter top. Darker than the tops cabinets and lighter than the lower cabinets. A new faucet also added an instant update and the entire kitchen looks new and fresh.
So if you are asking my opinion “Is it okay to Paint Your Kitchen Cabinets?”
