  • I am a big HGTV watcher!!! Check it out for ideas. But you have white couners. If you do white cabinets, what will your accent color be? I too hate my kitchen, but we are military and temp renting so nothing I can do about my rotting cupboards LOL But I love simple kitchens with a splash of color. Paint away!!! And you could change your yellow wall to a more neutral shade or a lighter shade, like a light yellow, not so bright. But that's all opinion.

  • The gold is nice if you paint your cabinets a cream color.

  • That is the same color of my kitchen, I think our was called "Nacho". I like it, but maybe you should paint your cabinets a nice bright white and get black or silver hardware to match your stove. I like the red curtains, it makes the yellow pop!

  • Yes, go ahead and paint those cabinets. And change the curtains to something not red.

  • I have white cabinets with silver nickle handles. My walls are a neutral beige color and my floors are a dark mahogany hardwood. It can look great depending on how everything else ties in together.

  • Frankly, I don't think anything you could do could make them look worse. Those are really UGLY cabinets. Definitely replace the hardware when you paint, and they'll look much better.

  • I would call the cabinets and drawer faces distinctive. Have never seen any like them. Overall do you feel your kitchen is dark or closed in feeling? At first I wondered if the cabinets had chalkboard paint on them. I don't think I would go white though. Try holding up a sheet of paper and find out if you like the look (color). Also, with the gold - how do you like it? Maybe lightening it up a bit would not hurt. For me, I would maybe choose a patterned drape instead of such a stark contrast, or even a wide striped curtain. Find something you can live with and not always be the main attraction.

  • I'd DEFINITELY lighten it up. Dark cabinets are not pretty in my opinion.
