Hi - this is an unrelated question.....What kind of built in micro is that? We're thinking of these, but just found out that there's a "kit" that goes around the unit. I was wondering, is there a wood option that can be applied to this or is the microwave kit the only option? Thanks and good job with the cabs.

What colors and accents do you have in your adjacent spaces? Look at these from SW or go to the cool neutrals link. The way to test is to paint a foamboard and move it around in your space at different times of day and night to see it in the light. So much depends on the light that will bounce off of those warm cherry cabinets (gorgeous!) so I selected some options that should "keep their cool." http://www.sherwin-williams.com/homeowners/color/find-and-explore-colors/paint-colors-by-family/SW7660-earl-grey/ http://www.sherwin-williams.com/homeowners/color/find-and-explore-colors/paint-colors-by-family/SW7650-ellie-gray/ http://www.sherwin-williams.com/homeowners/color/find-and-explore-colors/paint-colors-by-family/SW7664-steely-gray/

However, I think you would ultimately be happier to let these be the neutrals and take the accent color from your main living spaces and work it in here in some form, even if it is a graytone of that shade. Tell us more and I'll give you some that might help your whole space work.

Along with Summit Grey, I think that 2 shades lighter, SW7667 Zircon, would be worth a try also.

Thank you all for the great suggestions! This helps so much. Someone asked about my oven. It's a Thermador Professional Micro / Oven combo. PODM301J 30"
