Kitchen - refinish, reface, replace? And What about those Soffits?
Just bought a home. Do not like the cabinets at all. Pink Washed, salmon(?) granite countertops, salmon backsplash - and those darn soffits. Ceilings are 8 foot, kitchen is square. The cabinets are in great shape and I think the layout is the best choice (unless you disagree). What is everyone's experience with refacing/refinishing? The soffits make the room look smaller, I realize, but are there any alternatives that would allow me to keep the soffits? (to save on the huge mess and expense)? The soffit also extends into the breakfast room area. Or if I remove soffits, any solution other than buying longer cabinets? Any help, comments, very much welcomed. If it's total redo - you won't hurt my feelings
