5 ways to transform kitchen cabinets l Taubmans Paint

Is your kitchen looking tired or dull? Give it a quick and easy makeover that will give it a new lease of life

Create contrast between tones

Sometimes, all your kitchen needs to look brand new is a coat or two of paint. Update the cabinets by painting them bright white, giving the room a clean and contemporary feel. Experiment with contrasts by choosing a sophisticated color for the walls. Dark blue will give your kitchen a sense of depth, while brushed stainless steel handles, countertops and splash-back keep this look up-to-date. Decorate your fresh new space with small pot plants that will pop against the cabinets.
