White Kitchen Reveal

kitchen 09.06.15
I have been dreaming of a white kitchen for years. Our previous kitchen was over 20 years old and definitely in need of some updating. With some fresh paint, new countertops and a few minor updates, we have a brand new, modern kitchen that I love!
We had our cabinets painted with Simply White by Benajamin Moore. The cabinets were taken out to be sprayed and had a total of 6 coats with the primer and paint. You can no longer see the wood grain and they are super easy to wipe clean.
There was a lot of debate as to what surface we were going to go with for our kitchen countertops, but we finally decided on quartz due to its durability and look. After a bit of a mix-up in the colors, we ended up with Stone Grey quartz from Caesarstone. It ties in nicely with the grey in the marble subway tile backsplash that we chose.
For a little comparison, here is a photo of the kitchen BEFORE.
We are definitely happy with the end result!

    I love the white, and always have. Some kitchens are so dark and depressing, but yours makes me smile and says 'welcome'.

    Did you spray the cabinets yourself or hire it out? If hired out, how did you locate a company that sprays?
    • Jennifer Lifford
      Mary Davis - We definitely hired out to have the cabinets sprayed! Many of the kitchen cabinet stores {that supply new cabinets} also do re-finishing of older cabinets. They are so smooth and wipe down way easier than the old cabinets did.

    Looks good just the floors should have been updated too with maybe ceramic tile.

      Lisa - The floor probably wouldn't be my first choice if I could pick out a new one; however, it will be YEARS before replacing the floor would ever be in the budget. :) It's all solid hard wood and extends through most of our house.

    Beautiful! I am about half way done painting our old oak cabinets with Annie Sloane chalk paint, painting and waxing and polishing all the hardware! I love it.
    • Jennifer Lifford
      Joanne Menke - Wow!! Good for you for doing that! I have used the chalk paint before too and I am sure your result will be beautiful!

      Wendy - They are actually much easier to wipe down than my old cabinets and I haven't noticed any extra cleaning. :)
