They were here when we moved in, so I have no idea! They are just basic laminate. (We hope to replace them soon.)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Vintage Style With a Fresh Twist
The kitchen is still a work in progress, and the surfaces, cabinetry, and appliances are the same as when they initially purchased the home. The pair has freshened up the space with new paint, beautiful white and green dishes, and well-placed accents. "We're learning to love our house, even when it feels like it's falling apart," says Heather. "We realize that it's been here this long and just needs some TLC. We still have plans for improvements, but we're pacing ourselves."
Heather Freeman Design Co. added this to Modernize Your Old Kitchen Without Remodeling
This is my own kitchen. I loved the look of open shelving but wasn't ready to commit to a full kitchen remodel until I knew it would work for our home. For a quick fix, I took the cabinet doors off the frames and caulked the holes for instant open shelving. I would suggest this to anyone who wants to try out open shelving for a spell and see if it's a fit. This would also be a great option if you are renting. I love to collect white dishes, so I had a consistent color palette to display. I added touches of color here and there. Thankfully, I have another wall of cabinets to hide all of my mismatched Tupperware and random souvenir coffee mugs.Now that we've had faux open shelving, we've come to love it. We're considering a kitchen remodel in the next year that will make our open shelves a permanent fixture. Who knows ... maybe I'll get a gas range out of the deal.
12. Remove upper cabinet doors. If glass door fronts are out of the budget but you want to open up a bit of space, try simply removing the doors to your upper kitchen cabinets. It's an easy change to make (just unscrew the doors and fill and paint the holes) that can add a sense of spaciousness to a small kitchen.
