The stained cabinets in this Fairview home were ho-hum and outdated. As part of a larger kitchen remodel, the cabinets needed attention. Knowing that cabinets would be costly to replace, we decided that paint and some modifications would give us the updated look we were after.
The base cabinet was modified and the two doors were shortened so that we could install a farm sink.
Shorter doors were made for an upper corner cabinet in order to create a plate rack underneath. We brightened this upper corner by installing glass fronts in these same two cabinet doors and adding a puck light inside.
On the other kitchen wall we broke up the upper linear profile by building up the cabinet height over the refrigerator installing a new taller cabinet over the cooktop. This gave out cabinets a focal point. All of the upper cabinets got dentil molding and a beefier crown.
The cabinets were painted Sherwin Williams Antique White, a slightly lighter shade than the SW Ivoire selected for the walls. To switch island was painted black.
