We’re now building our Hacienda Hideaway kitchen, and over the past year, I’ve been collecting all the romantic ideas I could find to really elevate my design. I almost always used all of the greatest suggestions I discovered, so I thought it would be amusing to share them with you.
A new coat of paint is always the best investment; this is not a discovery. With a high-quality primer and specialist paint, the majority of cabinet surfaces can be refinished. Both Benjamin Moore Advance and Sherwin Williams Urethane Enamel, which are intended for cabinetry and come highly recommended by professionals and do-it-yourselfers, have produced excellent results for me.
Try painting just the top, lower, or island cabinets if you don’t want to commit to a full colour makeover. Adding a second colour will increase visual interest and prevent the room from feeling too flat. Your kitchen will feel more personalised if you use colours that are even slightly lighter or darker than your current cabinetry.
