Smile Need Cabinet Color Advice

Hello all,

I need help choosing a color to paint my laminate cabinets. Do you guys think I should paint them? When I ask friends and family, some tell me I shouldn’t paint them.

What do you think? If so, please recommend me a color. I’m terrible at this.

Thank you for your suggestions.

Personally I wouldn't paint them. Your current finish doesn't show dirt/grime easily and is easy to clean. Whatever paint you use will show dirt more and will need recoating at some point. But many do prefer painted cabinets. If you go that route, be sure to clean, scuff sand and use a solvent based primer prior to applying your choice of enamel [latex, waterborne or oil]

I have to agree with Marksr. What don't you like about the cabinets or finish as they are?
