What color to paint cabinets? - I am buying a house that has light Santa Cecilia granite in the kitchen. Right now the kitchen cabinets are older oak and I plan to paint them just not sure if I should go white or black. I wanted to paint the kitchen gray but the granite also has a lot of honey color to it. Thoughts? Trying to go for a more modern look and finding it hard w/ this shade of granite.

Thanks Jim! Good light in the kitchen... it is open to the living room and back of the house which is all windows.

@ tiffouz1 - Jim made some good points about the light and such. I'm glad you have plenty of light in the space. Santa Cecilia is one of those granites that people think is going to be really flexible, but it's not. It really looks great with dark, warmer brown tones, but with every other color it can be washed out. I like the idea of black and did a Google image search of this granite and found one kitchen in black. It looked great. I would get some paint samples of really deep browns (almost black) on the warmer side and maybe a black and see how they look with the granite. It would be a real show stopper if it worked out. Report back with final results - I want to see how it all comes together
