upgrade 60's galley kitchen

maryfeb18February 2, 2014
Plan to paint the cabinets and install new backsplash and countertop.
My thoughts: paint cabinets grey, paint walls off white, with black/grey countertop and off white subway tile backsplash. What to do with the stair rails?? Need advise!

If you're going with a contemporary look, you might want to stain the stair rails a darker color or replace them with an industrial style, something metal.

lighten up the counter, it really cuts the room in half in a dark color. Looks like a nice place for bookcase in the landing at the top of the stairs. Looks for some softer angles to add into the tunnel view. Change from the single picture to a collage of smaller frames/pictures, it will make the room look wider, instead of drawing your eye only straight ahead. Good luck!

Not sure I'd touch those cabinets. From what I can see, they are already pretty contemporary and fit right in with today's styles.
