Updating outdated wood trim

And of course you can hire a cabinet company to do this for you, but with a bottle of wine and a saw you might be AMAZED at what you can accomplish (it’s how I trim my toenails…) Seriously though, want to know how Confessions of a Serial DIY’er has a great ‘how-to’ as does my gal Tamara over at Provident Home Design.Using unified decor with a consistent colour palette can really help to update a kitchen or bathroom with oak cabinets.

Without getting into too much detail (as there will be another blog post about this in the future), you need other high contrast items in your room that mimic the look of your trim/walls.While this isn’t the traditional 1970’s look, the dark wood flooring and door help to show you how a soft, light gray paint colour can look beautiful with darker wood tones. Keep in mind that an off-white or light colour would be more noticeable with clean white trim.Dark trim tends to make light colours look LIGHTER than they would with white trim.You can also check out and backsplash can lighten, brighten and update oak cabinets – make them look rich and stunning, rather than heavy and old.And while they still have a bit more finishing work to do, you can already see how fabulous this kitchen is going to turn out!
