Painted Kitchens

Sometimes you encounter a kitchen that is so ugly, no amount of accessorizing is going to cut it. However, often a fresh coat of paint in a pretty colour is all you need to breath new life into a drab space. Paint is affordable and relatively easy to apply. Simply pick a colour that co-ordinates with the other elements of the kitchen, prep and paint and you’ll have a kitchen that feels brand new.
A creamy bisque colour is a safe alternative to an all white kitchen.



Soft grey is pretty paired with the white farmhouse sink and beautiful cararra marble counters. A white laminate countertop would also work if budget is a concern.

Black and white is a classic palette. This look is sophisticated and never gets old.


Green is always refreshing. Paired with cream, it provides the perfect backdrop for the culinary masterpieces you would expect to be created in this kitchen.

Colleen McClure Administrator & Proud owner of PRES Staging® - Expert Home Stager. When I was very young I began drawing interiors, it just came naturally. When I work with a client now, I see the finished project completed in my minds-eye as they explain how they would love to see their space created. I am able to provide sketches on the spot of their vision so this invokes client confidence and excitement for the project from the inception through to the brilliant manifestation – How Fun! When the economy did not support the luxury of home improvements, other passions led me to full-time work as a career counsellor. I very much enjoyed assisting people one-on-one to discover their own talents but this was an arena where I would develop effective techniques in workshop design and group facilitation as well. This would lead to a ‘happy marriage’ as I would apply these skills and passions when I purchased PRES Staging® - The Professional Real Estate Staging Centre. It’s truly the greatest joy to inspire others to discover and hone their innate talents – To witness their emerging confidence while coaching them on design principals and providing them the tools to start and run their own Home Décor businesses for Redesign and Staging. If you’ve ever thought you might enjoy this line of work, or even to do it for yourself and friends, get in touch – Let’s chat!
