Need help with mantel and kitchen cabinet colors
May 29, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are gutting the kitchen and removing a wall between family and kitchen this fall. since the family room and kitchen will all be one, what cabinet colors would you suggest based on my new family room furniture, I only have 10 foot ceilings, and that damn mantel. (I think it's ugly but the Previous owners drilled big screws into tile so unless I want to rip the whole fireplace down (really dont want to add that cost) I need to leave it or paint/restain it. One idea is to take the two base kitchen cabinets and re-use those on either side of fireplace and add shelving and trim to make "built ins". however Ill need to make both rooms flow so I'm back to the cabinet colors! The kitchen design is t completed yet but plan on having an island made and want it to be a different color than other cabinets preferably distressed black to flow with my black hard goods in family room. Ugh so many questions. I appreciate any and all input!
