Time to update my 15
year old ginger wash maple cabinets. Recently painted my center island black. Should I sand and re-stain or paint a color, like cream?

I had my 13 year old maple cabinets sanded and restained- big mistake. They just don't look up to date. So I am having them painted next week. I think paint is a much fresher and modern look. Cream sounds nice but you can chose any color. I am going with a taupe. For inspiration, go to a place that sells high end new cabinets and look at some of the colors .

Your painted island really elevates your kitchen that it looks very nice and modern. Compared to it, the maple cabinets are no bueno. Provided you have good luck and materials with paint, I would paint the maple cabinets a warm mushroom grey or for a more dramatic look, a higher contrast creamy white (not yellow).

Look for better pulls and knobs for your cabinets. That would change the look.

I suggest sanding then painting the cabinets a white or a shade of white. Benjamin Moore has good paint options, you can also upload your picture and change the colour of the cabinets yo get an idea on how it works
