Due to flood in kitchen, I needed to replace my laminate floor. It was beautiful. The new floor I chose from Shaw flooring was a new vinyl that looks like wood. It is very beautiful. My problem is it makes my kitchen look shabby. I have white cabinets, but now they look dull. The color of my flooring is Rainforest Teak. How do I brighten up my kitchen now that the flooring is in?

Use some light effect to brighten your kitchen. You can either use the carpet for your flooring to make your cabinet look brighten or change the ply of your white Kitchen Cabinets according to flooring color.

Something new sometimes makes something older look not so new. I call this the ripple effect, one project leading to another. A picture would help...but in the meantime, would you consider painting the cabs with fresh coat of white paint? Otherwise, a good cleaning using those mr. eraser pads to remove stubborn marks.

What color are your walls? Adding a rich wall color can do wonders. What color are your countertops and appliances? Evaluate the lighting in this space too. Posting a pic would help with suggestions.

Started to post and then noticed it's another old thread reopened (twice, actually) for advertising.
