A few months ago, we asked readers to send us their design/decor questions and over the next few weeks, we will be bringing you answers to many of those questions! In part 1, we answered your Flooring questions and today, designer Evelyn Eshun is answering your kitchen design questions!
Budget Friendly Updates
We have 80's style white European kitchen cabinets. Is there an inexpensive way to modernize them without spending a small fortune?
The easiest way to update dated kitchen cabinets is to paint them and change the hardware. With a plain white kitchen, how about painting the base cabinets in a deeper colour which is found somewhere else in the house. If you wish to keep the kitchen white, paint some of the cabinets in a high gloss white to offset the existing sheen levels for added interest. Brushed nickel or polished chrome pulls installed horizontally will give you an added modern touch.
