Q: We recently purchased a house where everything is brown. The brownest room is the kitchen. We plan on painting the walls and replacing the vinyl flooring with an engineered hardwood, but we are conflicted on how to handle the cabinets. We don't want to replace the backsplash or the countertops, as they are fairly new, but the cabinets have seen better days. My question is, what color would we be best off painting the cabinets? -Sent by Kati
Editor: What color do you think Kati should paint the cupboards? Any other decorating/brown-balancing advice? And remember—the countertops and backsplash are here to stay for the foreseeable future.
