Moved in 4 months ago, trying to update our home working with the oak trim not painting it. This house isnt't modern, so trying to update without a complete overhaul.
Here is the plan so far to get the full picture:
1- remove fluorescent lighting, changing out for drop pendents
2- using a gel stain to darken cabinets to match
trim color around window or just slightly darker
3- adding hardware after staining
4-leaving counters and back-splash as is for now (budget)
So the paint colors I have been looking at are greige: Edgecomb gray, Pale Oak, Balboa mist, Abalone. The previous owners had valances over each kitchen window. The kitchen gets tons of natural light with 3 windows and 2 skylights.
Ok so to the questions:
A- what paint color to work with the cabinets, trim and backsplash
B- curtains yes or no
