So this is a picture of my soon to be new kitchen... (We just bought our second house).
I am not fond of the colour but I love the layout.
Anyway it backs on to an open plan lounge room which is going to be quite modern looking.
What colours would you accessorise it with to make it look a bit more modern?
I have been thinking emerald green, wood and maybe some black or chrome? ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1376859125.499612.jpg

These are terrible pictures of my current messy kitchen, so it kinda has a modern retro kind of feel.ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1376859249.410910.jpgImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1376859288.544446.jpg
I don't mind if the new kitchen feels modern or modern retro or whatever, I would just like to try to tie it in a bit with the modern lounge room.

So this is my thinking.... Dark wood cabinets with white bench tops and either ligggght grey or stainless steel splash back. Super modern
Obviously ignore the island unless you want one.
Stainless steel appliances.

We have just signed up for a new kitchen. And are doing an off white cabinetry with a smoked charcoal 'wood grain' look laminate... We will be going a neutral glass splash back, but you could go neural/earthy colours for bench/cabinetry and then like a red or magenta glass splashback (or anything bold). Or obviously the stainless steel. I'll keep thinking...

What's your budget?
My suggestion is to replace the blinds and paint the walls. If your budget is bigger then replace the door handles with something more modern like some stainless steel handles (something that matches the size so it's a quick and easy job). If you've got any more money in the budget then replace the bench tops. Maybe look at the Ikea kitchen pages for some inspiration on colour schemes and any accessories to help modernise it.
Hang on, DD is on my lap and wants to say something

I think she has a good point.

Another idea is if you want to open it up a bit you could get rid of those over head cupboards near the oven... And put up a chalk board! I had even considered a chalkboard splashback for something different, but wouldn't work in our style of house or our space.
