Kitchen addition help. Island lighting, backsplash and paint color
October 15, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I'll have medium colored cherry cabinets and yellow river granite. Stainless on appliances. Probably a light colored tile or lux vinyl floor. Floors can still be changed if any suggestions. Don't like the real modern look. Can't decide on stainless or darker metal pendent lights on 5x3 island. Color on backsplash that won't compete with granite. Thinking maybe tumbled travertine. Then wall coloring still not sure. Does cabinet hardware need to match app. Any suggestions

That granite is beautiful.
If you don't like the real modern look, when it comes to putting pendants over your island, you should go more for darker finishes like bronze or copper. Here are a few examples of pendants you might like:
That's just a tiny sampling, but hopefully it gives you an idea or inspiration.

Cabinets To Go
Cabinets do not necessarily need to match appliances, as you mentioned you want to use stainless appliances, those typically go with almost anything you would chose for your cabinets. It sounds like you have it all planned out, if you have any questions or need ideas feel free to check us out! We would love to help in any way.

I like your choice of granite. It will go very nicely with your cabinet wood choice. I think both would be lovely with SS appliances. How about something in this vein for the backsplash? or match the (my idea for) appliances--ignore the cabts, just the backsplash material. Happy Houzzing.

I'd be interested to hear about the 3 x 5 island--how will it be used? It seems a bit small, but may be maximum for the area? TY!
