Chose white paint or thermofoil cabinet door for clean contemporary look? - We are remodeling our kitchen. Our overall style is contemporary to modern-ish (but short of minimalist or industrial look). Going with White cabinets (stainless steel contemporary pulls and some frosted glass doors), white quartz counters, and stainless steel appliances. Do not want the high gloss/European cabinets; but are now stuck on the decision as to which is the better cabinet door (1) style and (2) finish - for the most clean contemporary look. Choose white paint or white thermofoil ? On wood center recessed door style or solid/plain front door? Aesthetics and durability &ease of maintenance are the primary considerations (not resale value or cost). Thanks in advance for your input!

Cover just part of a kitchen island's side to get the look and make room for extra storage at the same time.

Waterfall counters (also known as risers) have been popping up in kitchens all over the place, and I for one couldn't be happier with the trend. When extended to the floor, almost any countertop material instantly looks more modern and sleek. Take some tips from these rooms and keep the style in mind for your next kitchen or bathroom update.
