To Paint or Not To Paint Cabinets

Paint Dark Cabinets White

My realtor friend with a million dollar listing called me with this problem:

“I have a client who loves this house but she really wanted a white kitchen and the cabinets are oak with a dark espresso stain. Can you help her visualize the kitchen with white cabinets and subway tile?”

My response? “Absolutely!”

I took a photo of the kitchen and with my computer software I changed the color of the cabinets to Ivory White by Benjamin Moore to go with the sage green/gray walls that were staying and added white subway tile. I left the original granite because they wanted to see what it would look like with the white. I dropped in some new clear glass pendants and new stools to update the look.

Here is the original photo:
