White Kitchen

Dark wood cabinetry and paneling were banished! This ranch kitchen required lots of paint and updated features to transform the space. The round table was added and the existing peninsula was widened so that breakfast and snacks can be actually be eaten in the kitchen!

Depending on the situation, you could go either way. If the pieces you are referring to are wood tones, I'd probably try to match the table.

Kristie Barnett, The Decorologist added this to Mood Makers: 5 Easy Ways to Put Your Home On Trend
1. Paint those cabinets. If your wood kitchen or bathroom cabinets are stained in hues of orange, yellow or red, they may look dated. Maybe it's time for a little painting intervention? Light-colored cabinets make a kitchen appear bigger and fresher. Just check out any major design magazine — all you'll see is painted wood kitchen cabinetry. The kitchen above was previously a dated, 1970s wooden cave. We painted everything in this space — the cabinets, the wood paneling and the oak hutch on the left. Forty years were shaved off this kitchen with a few gallons of paint. Just make sure you hire a pro or do your homework when tackling this kind of labor-intensive project.
