When I was assigned the task of rounding up ten kitchen cabinet makeovers, I decided to give myself some parameters. Actually, one parameter: No bright white kitchen cabinets. It’s not that I don’t love white kitchen cabinets, it’s just that they’re everywhere these days, aren’t they? So here they are; some of the best not-all-white kitchen cabinet makeovers on the intertubes.
Melissa when with a two-tone makeover in her kitchen…
with white uppers and black lower cabinets. See more at AT.
Holly re-did her kitchen a few years back and chose two-tone as well.
She decided to go with white on tope and turquoise on the bottom.
For the ‘just say no to white crowd,’ check out Mandy’s makeover. The cabinets might look black, but they’re really dark gray.
Lauren and her husband lightened up their kitchen by removing the upper cabinets.
They painted the remaining lower Witch Hazel (aka dark sage green).
Next, we have another Lauren, but she had an entirely different vision for her kitchen.
Black seems to be gaining in popularity. Will it overtake white someday??
Speaking of white, Jason wasn’t exactly keen on his white kitchen.
He chose to go decidedly darker and redder for his makeover. He removed the upper cabinet doors and painted the lower. (The SS stove doesn’t hurt either.)
Josette and Peter had a straight-out-of-the-70’s kitchen.
They cleverly added strips of wood to the fronts of their cabinets before they painted them. Again, a shiny new stove (and microwave) is a nice addition too.
Kara’s hatred of her yellow oak cabinets was mounting.
So she decided to paint them charcoal gray. (Maybe I meant to say GRAY was becoming increasingly popular?)
In this kitchen, the choice to paint the cabinet doors turquoise and the cabinet boxes black make the mismatched appliances work. Cute vintage-y feel, no?
And for our final kitchen makeover, artist Jonathan Fong’s creation. Before it was what a lot of people are going for these days: bright and white. After?
Well…it’s still bright!
