Kitchen Cabinets and Countertop- Modern or Beach house?

Bre AnnaJuly 24, 2013
So, I have attached a picture of the kitchen space in our new house- wood walls, wood floors and wood ceilings! We are doing a total kitchen reno! At first, we wanted a beach house feel because we live close to the beach. As you can see in the photo, we are in the middle of assembling a white bead board island, and will be putting Corian mint ice countertop on it! (I love anything white and turquoise). We had planned on doing all-white kitchen cabinets (not bead board because we were told that would be too much bead board), and then a nice butcher block countertop, mint-coloured backsplash to match the island countertop and a nice white sink! However, I have been thinking about something more modern- I was thinking about doing dark-brown cabinets on the bottom and white uppers, with maybe a white Quartz countertop, however, how would this look with the white bead board island and mint ice countertop? Thoughts?? I don't want it to be too out there, but I also thought the dark brown would look nice with the mint ice countertop on the island?

I like your original idea, all white kitchen with mint and butcher block. For some reason I can't see a dark brown in your space. Perhaps it is because it doesn't say 'beach house' to me. But how would you feel about a turquoise and white kitchen?

I was just in IKEA last night and they are featuring some fun white and turquoise concepts in their kitchen sale
