I have some typical golden oak cabinets that I want to update, maybe with some glass panel doors, painting white? Any ideas

I have similar cabinets and am planning a remodel. I like white cabinets as well. I'm also planning to highlight a section of cabinets by painting it a different color, removing cabinet doors to make shelves and adding some decorative touches.

You can incorporate a glass shutter in a few of them with an in built spotlight.

It will give a good look
Also Look for some better knobs and handles if you can

You can also add a tile or glass backsplash to add more colour if it is within ur budget instead of the regular cream wall

I think your cabinets are great-not too much grain, full overlay, good condition. If you go for some glass inserts, go with reeded or seeded or with wire embedded so you can't necessarily see everything in the cupboard. New dark knobs and maybe a backs plash, too. Forget about paint-unless you have it done professionally, and then I would do a putty or gray instead of white.

You can have the glass in the wall corner or the double door cabinets on either side of the wall corner, leaving the wall corner same.

If you like shabby chic - this is quite a nice option.... It would go with your counter tops and fridge but I think it would be a pity to go this direction with such good quality cabinets

Arches on a cabinet can covey a 'dated' look. If your base cabinets do not have arches, you might consider refacing the upper cabinets in white paint but take Carolyn Hennes' advice, don't paint yourself.

I have the same cabinets as does everyone in my neighborhood. Mine are great quality too. Deep aqua and copper go very well with them as accents and I just saved a page with a great backslpash in these two colors in my Gem's Nest ideabook. painting cabinets is best left to the professionals and still I have seen some that didn't look so great afterwards. White is beautiful, but wood is coming back in as it always will.

Thank you everyone for the ideas. I was looking at new hardware yesterday. I find it is hard to find someone who will just do partial cabinet remodels. Anybody out there in the metropolitan Phoenix area that you know of? (Chandler)
