Cabinet redesign
September 22, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We're looking for an affordable way to redo our kitchen cabinets. The orange color was not painted well, and it doesn't go well with the green wall color.

The orange is painted on a pressed board, so stripping and restaining isn't an option. We were thinking about replacing some with glass windows.

Any ideas or color schemes?

Are you keeping the green walls? You could just remove the doors to the uppers, paint the inside and consider them open shelving.

Not committed to the green walls. We thought about doing open shelving, but would need to do something with the lower doors and side panels. Thanks for the input!

Something I have always loved is weathered green cabinets. If you make the walls a gray-beige and put some glass in for cabinets, it would look beautiful. Try this:

Casa Loma Art Glass

If you're on a budget, you can replace with textured glass, otherwise, can go with designed art glass. See attached.

Best Regards!

Since those are a shaker style cabinets you can put panels over the orange that inset into the frames, you could do them on the sides of the uppers and glass the fronts, same with the lower cabinets- use your imagination, you could use patterned or solid laminate- that would give you hundreds of options, or resin panels or stainless steel..... Have them cut to fit snugly and glue them in.. Wow, I just impressed myself! lol! Good luck!
