Bright brass hardware time to change?


I like the back splash. I bet you recently added it. I think the corian counter tops can stay. I agree with quagmire, that you need to paint the cabinets. I would take down the soffits and use brushed nickel pulls. Your oak cabinets made me think of the cabinets on this blog:

I know I am behind the times with a lot of things and I am willing to change, but not my wood.
Wood has such character, it is homey and warm. It just has such a personality.
I have seen some very beautiful designer kitchens done with white, just I am not willing to go there with mine, not in this house.

Just as a FYI --- I think the bright brass is more than just out of style. I did a short search and found that Brass plating is normally done in a cyanide chemical solution. Apparently, this process is not allowed in most jurisdictions. There seem to be alternative processes, but don't work quite as well.
I figured as much. I remember the difficulty our company had (way back) getting a permit to do black-oxide and anodizing in-house.

Nothing wrong with your cabs, change off the hardware...and paint the
walls. Remove the brass hanging light in the kitchen, and paint the fan.
Put a high hat where you have the brass light.
You have high hats in the soffit, right ?

You'll be surprised how up-lifting that will be.

I don't think you need to paint your cabinets. You just need to tone down the amount of wood. Right now you just have nothing to draw your eye away from all the wood.

The recessed light cans are Air-tite Halo 4" in the soffits.

Tone down is what I'm looking for. I am online shopping this morning.
