Paint our kitchen cabinets---- good idea or worst ever?

We just moved in and are hoping to remodel and expand our space in 5 years. In the meantime, I can not look at the old, peeling linoleum floor for one more day!!! Any suggestions for updating the space in an inexpensive way? Should we paint the cabinets white? Buy new linoleum floors? We are planning to get all new appliances that we could use in the new space. Help please!!

I would paint as well. You kitchen will look much fresher. Also do a simple valance across the window above the sink to coordinate with everything.

First, replace the floor and see if you can live with the cabinets. They are nice. But the floor is ruining the aesthetic. I think if you paint the cabinets white, the room will look washed out. Backsplash, countertops, wall color, etc, will be mono chromatic. this will lead to a cold feeling. Leaving the warm wood cabinets will allow you to create chic with warmth. IMHO.

I'd change the floors first. Your cabinets appear to be in good condition and are a nice color.

Floating vinyl flooring is easy to install and relatively inexpensive until you are ready to renovate. You can get it in wood planking or tile styles. It is called Allure I believe.
