Q: Hi! I hope you can help me with my kitchen dilemma. My husband and I are expecting our first child in 8 weeks and we plan to move into our new townhouse in just 4 short weeks. There’s just no way I can update the entire place in time before the baby arrives, but I would like to tackle the kitchen [see photos below]

I know our life will revolve around this part of our home and I want it to feel like our kitchen and not the previous owners’. Do you have any suggestions for quick fixes to make the space look more modern and clean? I’m open to painting the cabinets, walls, and replacing the floor tiles. I figure these would be the easiest updates, but I’m stuck on what color combinations would even work. Help! Thank you in advance! -Sent by Nina

Editor: How exciting—a new house, a new kitchen, and a new baby, all on the way! Readers, what would you do if this were your kitchen? What would your top-priority, pre-baby renovations be?
