Get Inspired- Painted Kitchen Cabinets

An excellent way to improve your kitchens appearance without spending a fortune on replacing the cabinets is to paint them! Here are some great inspiring painted kitchen cabinets...

I love the idea of adding the colour to the cabinets in a pantry closet.

A popular thing in kitchens is to have the island a different colour than the perimeter cabinets. In this kitchen they did that but painted the island and the oven vent a light green. It really adds a pop of colour to the space and breaks up all of the white.

I love this colour! The charcoal gray looks so good on kitchen cabinets....I think I want to do that in my next house.

Another common thing you see in kitchens is to paint the top cabinets one colour and the bottom in another colour.... In this kitchen they did white ontop and a nice vibrant red on the bottom. Only doing the bottom cabinets is a great way to add some interest to your cabinets with out going over board with red.

I love how this kitchen has the painted cabinets on the perimeter and they left the island in a nice wood finish instead of painting it the same or different colour.

All a kitchen needs sometimes is a new paint colour and add some new knobs and you have a whole new looking kitchen!

Finishing the House Tour

Sorry it has been one busy month and I haven't had much time to blog. It's not easy living in a house that constantly needs to look like it is staged! Our house is still for sale but we have had a lot of people come and look so hopefully an offer will come soon!

I thought I would finish off the house tour from last time. (Kitchen, Bathroom, House tour)

Here are the before pictures of the basement powder room.



After ....You can read all about the bathroom Reno here


This next picture is of the office and I didn't have a before of J's room but it pretty much looks the same. We didn't really change anything in the office just filled it with furniture.
