White Kitchen Reveal

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!
