I'm happy with the results and very psyched with my cabinets and tiles. If I were going to stay I'd have chosen a different floor, a gray or pure white countertop, and a lighter, brighter wall color. But hopefully it will attract buyers with the colors chosen by the real estate agents.

Wow, it looks amazing!

Now, I'm not sure whether you considered this before --- and what the market is like in your area, but if there's a way to add lower cabs next to the range, it might be worthwhile to find something. It may be hard to find matching lowers; alternatively maybe open shelves?

IKEA also has lower open shelves that re now full depth.

Wow, those side by side pictures really show what a difference you've made!! Your kitchen looks so fresh and updated now. Thank you for sharing your project; your end result will give encouragement to those with the same dilemma.

Good luck on your listing, and may you have multiple offers. :)

I am so appreciative of this article right now! I have a 1923 Craftsman that apparently got a kitchen update in the 1980's. The tile was tan with dark brown grout and took up the bottom half of the wall, as well as the countertop and backsplash. I like the utility of tile and did not have the money to pay someone to renovate my kitchen, so I decided to try and paint it along with my wood cabinets. It has turned out great!! I now have a shiny white tile/grout throughout my kitchen and white cabinets. It was a lot of work, but I'm very proud of the results and now that I'm putting my house on the market, I hope all that work will pay off. IMO the tile looks great and with a new countertop, my kitchen is completely different. You can read about it here: https://www.houzz.com/discussions/5538366/painting-kitchen-tile-and-grout#23650137

Love every last one of these—but it’s not a hard sell, I cry whenever people rip beautiful old tile from bathrooms and kitchens (or yell at the TV).
