Before you start, spend some time planning what you want your kitchen to look like. Consider refinishing cabinets and either applying a new shade of stain or painting them. Updating dark cabinets to a lighter, brighter color can lighten your kitchen and give the illusion of more space.
To create a modern look, consider combining a solid color palette of light blue, bright red and other brilliant hues to complement your stainless steel appliances. You can pair this color scheme with a neutral accent color like white, brown, black or metallic as a finishing touch to your kitchen's décor.
