Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone might be able to recolor my kitchen cabinets white. I am thinking of replacing them with a lighter wood, but I was also thinking of going with white. I was going to start this week, but decided white may look better.

As far as the color, just a basic bright white. I'm not real picky on how exact it is. I tried it myself in PS and screwed it all up. I'd just like an idea of how a drastic color change would look.

I've included 2 pics since I didn't know how the lighting would affect it.

Thanks a ton, and excuse the mess.

Yeah the white looks really good. But I'd be curious to see what a light maple or ash would do for that kitchen. :wink
That's our other choice is light maple. Both are about the same price, so that's why we were trying to see what it looks like.

Thanks a ton Seth!

ash-ish, Hahaha I like that word. Umm, ok I like the white better. The "ash-ish" brings out the floor, but the white really makes the room pop!

Thanks btw!

yes, i too like the white better. especially given the diminutive size of the kitchen. the white really opens it up and makes it more inviting. adding to the "inviting" sentiment, i think the white looks cleaner. and who doesn't appreciate a cleaner kitchen?

the white matches the appliances therefore giving the room a more complete feel. The as-ish looks like an afterthought

Redoing your cabinets in a lighter color is a no brainer.
- cleaner looking
- looks bigger
- looks more up to date

We're getting ready to reface our cabinets here at Luna-Land. Remodeling on the cheap so we can flip this house over and put the profit into something bigger.

oh I thought you meant "your" as in everyone, in general. Like a blanket statement, and I was thinking that lighter cabinets just wouldn't look right in my kitchen. Didn't think you meant me, 'cause only one of you has seen my house.

Damn, thanks Seth. My wife was having a hard time deciding on which color to go with. That will really help out.

I owe you an e-beer.

:lol
