98.627% Finished Kitchen - Transitional White Inset w/ glass tile

posted by: theanimala on 01.02.2010 at 03:00 pm in Kitchens Forum

After reading this site daily for 6 months now and getting tons of great advice it's time for us to post our finished kitchen. In keeping with the style of the house we needed to go more modern than traditional, but we didn't want something too contemporary. Also, we couldn't decide on painted or stained cabinets, so we decided to do both by painting the perimeter while having the island stained.

Although we moved no walls, it ended up being a bigger project then we expected as the old tile floor went through our foyer, powder room and laundry room. Also didn't have correct sub-flooring, and we wanted to move some of the appliances around, etc. The reason the it is only 98.627% completed, is we still have 1.373% left to do, such as glass shelves in glass front doors so in cabinet lighting can shine all the way through, etc.

RE: need help figuring out cabinet/wall colors for this old kitch (Follow-Up #1)

This is one of my favorite kitchen makeovers. You could paint the cabinets a gray green color(She used mouse's back from Farrow and ball) and the backsplash and walls white. Then do your door trim and window trim in the gray green. It gets a little tricky since the brick backsplash runs into the wall. I would have to see a full shot of the kitchen. Maybe two different shades would work.

In this kitchen she used white or the wall color.

Or you could do something like layla at lettered cottage did. Paint them black. I think this looks fantastic.
