Unlock the entire Houzz
February 27, 2012
I need help with my kitchen. Every time I seem to have it figured out, I think about it for a few weeks/months and don't like the decisions I have made. Mainly I need to choose a colour to paint the walls and cabinets. The countertop will be changed in the future but not right away and everything has to be done with a strick eye to cost. I am planning to change out the sink to a single big one with built in drainboard, there is one at Ikea I like, and a new high arch faucet with pull down spout. The windows and door has framing that has been taken down in preparation for the painting and the door will be painted when it warms up enough for it to be able to stay open and not have all our heat escape to the very cold outdoors. The floor I still like, we refinished it a few years ago and it looks nice. Although these photos show lots of light in the kitchen, this is not the norm so I think I have to stay in the light tones to prevent feeling cavelike especially during gloomy days and the short days of winter. The gold colour on the walls of the dining room adjacent to the kitchen are probably not going to be around long either.
