This is a great tool. Even just looking through the website and styles gives tremendous help in choosing materials that go well together, without having to actually buy the bag.

Our best move:
1. painting the existing wood cabinets dove-white, but hiring a pro to do it. totally worth the extra cost.
2. replacing old ugly countertop with white marble
3. buying a ready-made island (crate & barrel) but replacing the butcher block top with the same white marble as the rest of the kitchen. looks unified and bright.

These 3 things transformed our kitchen completely.

I'd leave the cabinets, rip out the carpet asap, and put down black & white checkered vinyl tiles. Cheap and cheery!

Elephants Breath by Farrow & Ball. It's a warm neutral, and with al those windows and white trim, would look fresh but mellow.

I have ceiling height wood cabinets in my kitchen, and hated the light wood colour. Though I really wanted to tear them down & replace with steel shelves, I opted to paint them white & add great hardware, to appease my husband and any future buyers. They're not as cool, but they store a ton and look way better than before.

I would find a comfortable outdoor wicker couch, with bright & happy cushions. Lounging is so much more fun than sitting on patio chairs!
