80's Kitchen - Is This Doable?
I have been lurking for months. I enjoy reading all the posts and some of the kitchens I've seen here are amazing. I live in a 1400 sf ranch home that my late husband and I had built 30 years ago. It is a very modest home in a modest neighborhood.
In 1985, we had our kitchen redone and chose laminate "Eurostyle" cabinets that were very popular at the time. Almond color cabinets with oak trim. We had been considering a kitchen redo for quite a while, but real life (college tuition, etc. got in the way). My husband passed away last year and now I'm trying to figure out a way to have this kitchen updated a little, without spending major cash.
I was thinking that I (not really me, but someone who knows what he's doing) could paint the oak trim the same color as the cabinets. Do you think this would work? I know it wouldn't look great, but it might look better than the outdated kitchen I have now. I could have a nice pull added to the cabinets (vertically). I would also purchase a new countertop, backsplash and new SS appliances. The floor is oak. I would post a picture, but I don't know how.
Any suggestions or your thoughts on this idea would be greatly appreciated.
