Tongue and groove kitchen


Okay so basically my entire house is tongue and groove wood. I don't mind it for the most part but I feel like it could use something different to break up the tone. We just put up new cabinets in the kitchen, but I feel like it needs something else to brighten it up or something. I was thinking about a backsplash or something, but I'm wondering if we should just paint the whole room, or replace with sheetrock and then paint? Any ideas or suggestions welcome

Re: Tongue and groove kitchen


I'm assuming you mean that your walls are T&G.

We have no idea of your budget or tastes.

But, I note that paint is cheap and probably the easiest way to quickly change decor.

Don't really have a set budget, but yes the walls in the entire house are tongue and groove. Here's a picture of the kitchen, pardon the mess

Re: Tongue and groove kitchen


I might just do a whitewash of the ceiling T&G to brighten it up a bit. It's cheap and quick, and if you don't like it, go ahead and paint it full white.

Re: Tongue and groove kitchen


CAUTION..... I'm no decorator... and don't even pretend to know anything.

But, personally, I agree with you and think it may be that you have a monotone to everything.... and maybe some contrast (paint) will dramatically change things.

I really wish we had some pro decorators on here.... how could we solicit them.

Best

Re: Tongue and groove kitchen


You have the right idea.. I'd consider painting the T&G on the sides and do a backsplash... some people have a stroke if you suggest painting over wood like that but sometimes you just need to do it...

Another idea, which may make no sense in your situation, would be to drywall over the T&G in that area... that will really make it a defined space vs the rest of the house...

I asked my boyfriend about painting any he doesn't seem to like the idea and doesn't think it will look good. I'm thinking we may try it and if it looks horrible just do drywall instead. Just hard to envision what it's going to look like

Re: Tongue and groove kitchen


in your case drywall on that left side wall would most likely require you to remove the T&G and maybe even those upper cabinets at least to have it look even remotely good.. as you said start with paint.. then live with it for a while and see how it works out...

Painted T&G looks like in these pics.. at least that's how they look on my ceilings

Re: Tongue and groove kitchen


I would rip out the wall t n g and install drywall for the best results. This would require removing cabinets as well but would be worth it.
