Toning Down 1980s Cabinets

By Roger Hazard

Roger,

I have a kitchen that was remodeled in the 1980s. The cabinets are European style (no hardware) almond laminate with an oak strip on the bottom of each. The stove and fridge are almond as well. What would be a good wall color to make the room look more modern? Painting the cabinets is not an option.

John,

I remember when that cabinet style was so popular. I would try a sage green. It's strong enough to take some attention away from the cabinets and goes well with almond.
