Kitchen cabinets--paint or reface?

Beth Hommes

I have just moved to a home with a long, narrow kitchen. The cabinets are pickled oak. The floor is engineered wood. The counters are a tan/white/dark brown granite. The paint is brick/barn red (definitely want to change) There is no backsplash (I'd like to put in glass or tile--maybe smoked quartz subway tile???). I don't love the granite but there is a lot of it so I'd like to keep it. I don't want to change the footprint so I'd like to reface or paint the cabinets. I like white or off white with a dark glaze. I also like maple or ash. The room tends to be dark. Where do I start? I'm not tackling this myself. Between drawers and cabinets there are 54 doors/fronts.. I don't know the pros/cons of refacing v. painting.
