I have been lurking on this site for the past year and half when I was looking for a solution to my kitchen color mistake. I finally had the opportunity to design my dream kitchen. I looked at hundreds of kitchens. I chose antique white cabinets with antique brown granite. My house is a craftsman home with tradition red brick accents. All the trims are white. I spent what is a fortune to my family on this kitchen. The problem is all day long my cabinets look yellow. I hate it. Love my layout, appliances, tile, and granite but hate the yellow in my cupboards. I tried adding accents, changing the lighting and living with it.
My cabinets are worth about 30k alone. I cannot in this lifetime afford to replace them. I am worried about in a couple years I am going to be retired and looking at them all day. I am thinking of painting them. I have been looking getting a professional lacquer job. The doors go offsite and a painter comes in and does all the trim. What should I know about painting cabinets? Will the non-factory finish make my house look cheaper? It is the only solution I can think of.
