Kitchen remodel
June 18, 2013
My kitchen planner is suggesting that I keep the original cabinets which are Kraftmaid and the color is Butterscotch. The cabinets are only 10 years old and are a great product, except for the color. She suggested changing the crown to darkish brown/black and using black appliances. Would this be something anyone else has heard of?

Do you have photos of the kitchen ?

If you post pics, you will get better advice. Take one of the drawers to a specialty granite store or 2. New granite can really take cabinets to a whole new level. I would look for some that is cream with veining that is similar to your cabinets. I got some with maple cabinets and it looks sensational. Mine have cream, gray, a little rust and are wow!

I can't comment on the re-use of your cabinets. However on using all black appliances just be aware that they tend to pull a lot of the light from the space, especially refrigerators which consume a large amount of vertical space. If you have a very bright kitchen you can possibly get away with it, but if its a dark kitchen be wary. There is no rule that says you must have all appliances match. Maybe do a stainless refrigerator mixed with other black appliances. Also the black trim can be pulled out in other ways, such as in the countertop or splash material.
