Hate my kitchen...and need it a house make over, we bough my inlaws house and their kitchen was white and I hate it, white cabites, white floor, black and white tiles.....white white white.....
My would like to retouch the touch the house to make a little our, my inlaws still think that is theirs because I think it looks the same....Please help meeeeeee...
You bought it, it's yours. Do what you want and can afford. Could be just adding some color - accent wall, paint cabinets even artwork could tone down both the white and the in-law memories.
Never invite the in-laws over again and you can keep everything as is [save money] and be done with it...
On your color scheme, whatever you do [if you do], make sure the kitchen changes transitions to the adjacent rooms colors, or colors to be.
Some low cost changes are paint [DIY], tile backsplash [semi-DIY if you have done before] and flooring [DIY based on type].
If the floor is tile, you can purchase a laminate and install a floating floor as long as the tile is pretty evenly installed and the laminate comes in double-sheets. Make sure you get a laminate that does good with water droplets...
go 4 complete makeover and erase in-laws memory
then invite them to lunch
that will be cool
re painting the walls feels like you are in a new house too! If the in-laws painted them white, you can have beige, cream, light colors.. dark colors, whatever suits you. After all, its yours
I'm a drywaller not a plumber. Leave it to me, most kitchen repair jobs should be left to the pros.
Where are the black and white tiles? On the floor, or a backsplash? I think those might be your biggest concern re: coordinating with new colors. It could get busy. Seeing you don't like the black and white theme maybe get rid of those first. The rest is easy - paint. Also think about putting in some new window coverings, they can make a big difference to a room and don't have to be expensive.
It's your house, you can change as you like
Or better still, invite them over to a "make-over" party. That would be really cool. Whatever color you like the best, re-paint the kitchen in that color with the floor being a darker shade of that.
