Replace countertops or paint cabinets?
We are going to be selling our home in the next year due to expanding family and not enough room. Our kitchen has black appliances, wood laminate countertop, and 1980's standard wood cabinets (the wood color on the laminate and cabinets are very different and clash together). I want to get the most bang for the buck. I am tempted to leave the countertops that goes up the wall and paint the cabinets. I repainted the whole house with a bright white trim and thought the cabinets would be nice this color, but don't know if that works with black appliances. My other option is to just revarnish the cabinets and do countertops and backsplash. I just don't want to drop a lot of money and not get it in resale. I don't know if I should do granite countertops or formica. Any ideas or what is the best for the market? I am so confused. Thank you.
