please need advice for my kitchen!
November 16, 2013
Will be moving into a 6 year old house soon. The kitchen needs help, the cabinets are 42 in long and the ones on the wall of the stove are 27 in wide. Since the are not full overlay doors, I feel like they look too narrow. Any ideas to make them look wider? I was thinking of buying full overlay glass doors, but maybe full overlay solid doors would give a wider appearance? Thanks for all advice! P.S. Should I paint or reface them white?

I actually like the paint, backsplash and all stainless appliances would make the whole kitchen feel more contemporary

I actually LOVE the long, narrow look of the cabinets! And I'm not at all bothered by the doors not being full overlay since the cabinet doors have simple, clean lines (though I prefer full overlay when ordering new cabinets). I would simply update the appliances so they match each other (which they do in one pic and don't in the other) and possibly update the backsplash (no hurry, just as a future project).

thanks, I am used to full overlay doors so it just seems off to me. I am going with all stainless and will be changing the backsplash to maybe white subway and a white type counter. Any other ideas would be appreciated!

I think a long horizontal on the splash will offset the vertical of the cabinets nicely.

I like your cabinets! I would change out your appliances for stainless when you can. I would paint the walls and add a cute sign or clock over the doorway. And live in the house a little while before any big changes.

Agree, change everything to ss. Also, living in the space is a very good idea. Like the idea of a more modern backsplash. Change knobs to modern bar type pulls. Maybe change one cabinet to glass.
