White cabinets or Dark/Merlot Cherry?
August 7, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We were thinking of doing merlot cherry with a lighter granite counter top. We live in a 1979 colonial that I can touch the cieling. We have a lighter wood laminate floor and have SS appliances. I am not a fan of the flooring and thinking of going with a darker plank vinyl. My wife and I were suprisingly attracted to a white kitchen we saw as well as I see a lot of colonials use white cabinets. Also I am wondering if using a white cabinet with a dark counter top would be okay. I used the merlot cherry and lighter granet in the bathrooms I redid, but I notice water can leave a shadow from standing water on the granite. I like functionality the most, then following traditionalism, then style. Resell is important and I don't want to make the room feel smaller. What do you guys think?
