1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Ugliest kitchen of them all. Severe help needed... on: March 25, 2008 05:11:27 AM
Hi guys! long time lurker! first time poster!  Kiss

So, I am  buying this house. Its a fixer upper (obviously) and I need help with the kitchen. I planned on painting the horrible wood panel cabinets ASAP. The rest of my house is going chocolate brown, a biege peach and deep red or blue. I want my kitchen to look "clean" and pretty. I would like to tie in a bright blue glass as my back spalsh. The counters are a darker grey, and they are new. (Why they didnt replace the cabinets from the 60's when they replaced the countertops is beyond me...)

So i was thinking i wanted to do them white, or maybe a cottage white so its not so  Shocked when you walk into the kitchen. Its an open floor plan into the family room, dining room and bar area. so i can't get too crazy with it. Also, one wall of the cabinets are built in....  Sad so refacing them is just not an option now...

Any ideas? i was thinking a cottage white, with deep sea blue backsplah, and a deep sea blue inside to the cabinets... get some pretty blue contact paper, so when you open them, they pop a smidge... i dunno. i hate the kitchen and it will be first re model... but for right now, i just need to be able to walk in there and cook without vomiting.

Any help is DEEPLY appreciated!

Thank you everyone! im excited to hear some of the ideas your creative minds come up with!
