Kitchen cabinet redo... Opinions/advice needed!
July 16, 2014 in Design Dilemma
My DH and I have been slowly working on updating in our house, esp. the kitchen. Last fall/winter we ripped up all of our old flooring & put in (all by ourselves, first time ever) wood floors. They turned out beautifully! Then in the spring we put in granite countertops. We updated the island by adding bead board and I painted the whole thing an off white. I love the way it turned out! (You can still see wood grain on doors but I don't mind.) Now comes my dilemma... Do I paint the rest of the cabinets the same or leave the island as a focal point & stain the cabinets dark? My DH loves dark cabinets but I am worried it will be too much dark with the floors. (Btw... We are going to be changing out the other appliances for SS and will add moulding to the top of the cabinets.) Please help! Thank you!
