Paint Kitchen Cabinets?

Posted by kira5817 (My Page) on

Should I paint my silver/grey cabinets cream to match the rest of my adjoining great room. I will be installing a solid surface countertop regardless, but if I keep them I will go a lighter quartz, if I change to cream cabinets the counters with be a gold/cream granite.

What should I do? Planning on selling the house in about 7 years, so resale is important.

Thanks!

It looks just fine now. Worry about doing anything else in 7 years.

I agree with live. Do it closer to sale so it looks fresh.

Not to mention... but grey is very "in" right now. Maybe change the wall color in the great room/dining area to a more "greige" color.

leave them, they look fine as is. As you get closer to a sale you can re-evaluate. If you paint now you will likely need to re-paint them anyway so wait for now!

what color is the wall paint in the living/dining rooms? I really like it!

Thanks for the feedback! I think we will keep them and buy a countertop that will work with cream cabinets if we decide to paint in the future.

The colour in my great room is BM Dijon btw.

Was thinking of doing BM Linen White on the cabs when we decide to paint them.

i actually like your grey cabinets. It really is a nice change from white cabinets even though I love white cabinets. I think a white marble with grey veining would look beautiful and update your look. It is so pretty now and I would keep it!

The cabinets are very attractive and a unique color. My vote is to keep them this color and find a counter that works with both. Good luck!
