Dear All,

Due to very tight budget, I'm trying to not tear down kitchen cabinets and top but only re-laminate. The kitchen top is of sandy /grey / redish color that I'm totally lost at what color for cabinet laminate to update the look of the kitchen, to make it more modern and appealing. Appreciate any advice..many thanks in advance!

    How about a metal look? There are some really nice looking metal finishes available in the Wilsonart line. Something with a minimal patterning such as a brushed look. Then you can add shiny chrome accessories such as your kitchen tools and caddy, soap dispenser, etc. You can also use black appliances to connect with the black in the counters. For back splash you could also use a sheet of metal cut to size and attached with rivets. Cuts way down on the cost of tile installation and product. The wall color could potentially be a deeper version of the rust color in the counters or maybe your ceiling could become this color if you have issues with light.

    I'm not sure I'd be brave enough for this one, but here's a combination of contemporary laminate cabinets that draws on all of your colors. But maybe, in your case, a combination of white and gray cabinets?

    Nice ideas from Chelan Home Center. I also think the answer lies more with accessorizing and adding some colour, as opposed to changing out all the cabinet doors (which I think are very attractive and contemporary in style.) Love the idea of a metallic backsplash, losing some of the starkness of the white tile. I'd also change out the faucet for something more eye-catching and change just a few of the upper cabinet doors, perhaps using smoked or milky glass. Something like this :

    That did it ! ... Those are actually metallic tiles and I'd seen the pic before reading Chelan Home Center's idea of using sheet material ... which is a much better, less messy and less expensive option. I'd go for the partial backsplash, rather than using it around the entire area. I think it's the current uniformity (and emptiness) of the kitchen that's making it look a bit bland at the moment and that once you add a few attention grabbing details, it will look great !

    @Chelan, Nice website ! ... Not the right venue, I know, but "Sneak Peek" .. not 'peak'.
    I proofread websites for a family member, and couldn't help but spot it. :-)

    Sounds like you are really only interested in having the cabinets refaced. If so, I recommend (strongly) that you avoid the plastic/thermafoil laminate - it will bubble and crack eventually. I suggest you look at wood refacing and you could go with a cherry or walnut shaker style cabinet with new hardware (and yes, I agree a new faucet is needed to complete the look). The wood refacing is not that much more than the thermafoil and worth every dime.

    Thank you all for your advice. I was thinking of gray / metallic too. One combi is dark grey lower cabinets with metallic top cabinets.

    My other problem is the rubbish chute on the wall. Appreciate any ideas to "beatify" it.
    Many thanks again.

    Hi,


    We suggest that you g⁠⁠⁠⁠o for grey (safer) or black (more "loud" and daring) laminate colours as it matches really well with the granite you have. These colours will definitely give a touch of elegance and express a modern look theme! You may also do polishing for your Granite to give it back its shine thus you will look like you have a new kitchen! Please do contact us in jojo@stoneamperor.com.sg and we may provide you more information and feedbacks about countertops!


    Cheers,

    I would suggest medium grey shade for cabinets with all S.S. hardware(garbage shoot door to match same colour too). The walls including back splash within this space can be back painted white glass. Add few S.S. accessories on counter top and remove the wooden look to modernise it. This is with respect to not changing the granite top.

    to save money. Cabinets can be totally black. Leave the tiles as is. It looks clean and well kept. When you have the budget, change everything. Now minimal changes,less is more here.

    Two months had passed and still at it. What is keeping you from giving it a new look? Budget can be sorted out beautifully if you think on this lines. First major look, cabinet change, than details. In this way, easier to get things done.
