Budget kitchen remodel

I started my kitchen remodel more than a month ago, but I’m still in the middle of renovation. I just can’t decide on colours!

Well, let’s start from the beginning. My kitchen cabinets are quite old (80’s probably). When I moved into this apartment nearly seven years ago, I didn’t have the money to change the entire kitchen. I could only update it with some paint and accessories. After another two or three years I invested into new floor, worktop, sink, integrated hob and oven, but the majority of cabinets remained the same. This year I decided finally to change the wall cabinets, the old ones were quite small and there was always a mess on the top of them. I bought only three units, but they are high up to the ceiling. I finally have more storage now.

My initial thoughts were to paint all cabinets, including the new ones with a new colour, but I decided to leave the top ones white and paint just the bottom ones. That combination is quite trendy right now and I like it. Well, the decision has been made, but I still don’t know what colour I’d like on my cabinets and weather to paint the wall or maybe wallpaper it (the one which is opposite to the cabinets).

This is how my kitchen looked from the beginning till recently, just before I changed the top cabinets.
