Small Condo Kitchen Makeover
My condo kitchen was very standard: wood cabinets, dark green laminate countertops, no hardware, no backsplash. I haven't looked at those before pictures in a while. I really hate those countertops.
At first, the plan was to paint the cabinets white and add Subway tile, thinking I could always update the countertops later. I was lucky to find some great granite on sale and I was sold. I had to update the sink as well, choosing an undermount option that fit within my setup and gave me more depth, even though it was slightly less wide.
I did this work when I first closed on my condo, before I moved in. I had someone who was painting the whole condo. He also painted the cabinets and installed the Subway tile.
It's so much lighter now. I love the white.
I have a back door that leads to the back building hallway (back exits, storage, laundry room, etc.). It was ugly and looked almost as though it belonged in an industrial building vs. a home. I gave it a fresh coat of Behr Cool Jazz and love the color.
