Dramatic Update - from Dated Cherry to Classic White Enamel

Our clients were ready to update their cherry cabinetry. Instead of replacing their cabinets, they chose to paint them with a beautiful white enamel. The result is a perfect balance of warm wood, clean white and a stunning kitchen island color that matches the accent wall in their updated family room. Bookcase cabinets were updated with the same white enamel and a former TV cabinet gets new life as a stone fireplace. The beam color was selected to compliment the stone and creates fantastic visual interest. Our team worked with the homeowners to come up with the best color matches for the customers wants as well as working with elements from the existing space. We wanted to open the space up and make the kitchen appear larger which is why we opted for a lighter cabinet color like white enamel. This helped brighten the space, we opted to use a navy blue color for the kitchen island as it fits current trends and acts as a focal point for the kitchen. We wanted to make sure the entire space had a cohesive design without being too "matchy." The homeowner's wanted the two spaces to flow effortlessly into one another which is why we carried the white enamel into the living room ceilings and matched the fireplace stone color to the newly painted ceiling beams. white kitchen, paint, enamel, refresh, remodel, update, cherry makeover BEFORE:
