I love them all. I have remodeled 3 homes in my lifetime and the first thing I do with the kitchens is make them all white. Nothing says clean to me like a white kitchen. I am a clean person so keeping a white kitchen clean is easy. Dark kitchen especially around my food does not remind me of clean food. Where you prepare your food should be clean and clinical.

I have used this concept in several kitchens which have a similar layout: take the range and move it to the adjacent wall, then open the end wall to the dining room, using 2-door glass cabinets above. This provides a bit of visual division, plus the cabinets can be pretty when lit. Either remove the lower wall all together and finish the backs of the cabinets, or leave the wall - but whichever way you go, run the countertop front to back (i.e. over the top of the half wall) This gives you a nice staging area for dinner plates, serving bowls, etc.

You will have to take an actual cabinet finish sample and look at it with specific granite slabs. There is no other way to really judge how it will look.

We recently moved to a house with one glass corner cabinet above the counter visible to all as it is an open concept space. After moving around and adding a shelf to the cabinet to make the best use of the display area for special pieces, I found the shelves did not line up with the horizontal trim around the glass panes. Solution? Painted all the shelf edges with a flat black so the shelves disappear and don't distract the eye from the cabinet doors. Fast and easy fix if anyone else has this problem.

We like to do a mix of glass and wood front panels. That way you have the option of displaying some of your prettier dishes and making the kitchen feel more open, and it saves some money.
In this particular kitchen we did a mix of glass, open shelving, and wood panel doors. You can see other pictures here: http://columbiaredevelopment.com/contemporary-home-beaumont-wilshire/

I don't like them together at all. They are working against each other. Both are very nice, but together is a fight. I's go for a single color backsplash and highlight the granite.

Since the kitchen has some vintage charm, I would go one of two ways. You could use a simple nickel pull, similar to this: http://www.lowes.com/pd_247228-29780-RL060827_0__?productId=3680944&Ntt=cabinet+pull+nickel&pl=1¤tURL=%3FNtt%3Dcabinet%2Bpull%2Bnickel&facetInfo=

Lowes also has one that is a utility style pull with the (faux) exposed screwheads. I can't remember the name of it, but they run about $6 so if you're interested, you can narrow the search that way (they're a polished nickel finish)

If you want to play up the vintage look, how about going with a milk glass knob, which would bring some accent color into the room. You could use these in conjunction with one of the pulls I suggested. There are a great price http://www.dlawlesshardware.com/antique-glass-knobs.html

I would opt for the lighter tile. The dark tile will end up giving you too many visual changes - dark lower cabinets, light granite, dark tile, light upper cabinets. Re the glass door cabinet above the peninsula - one idea is to have your tile installer do a "step" design - angled from the corner of the cabinet to the edge of the peninsula. Hope this helps. Good luck!

If you are leaving the colour of your kitchen cabinets as is, then choose black backsplash.

Thanks for some new color ideas! We love yellow too, especially in the kitchen! In this photo we painted an accent wall yellow in an office that's attached to the kitchen. Looks great next to a chalkboard wall!

If white kitchen appliances bother you a bit, you can "hide" them under larger kitchen cabinets, which are an excellent design tool that makes your kitchen blend with the rest of the living space more seamlessly. Some homeowners prefer to save money on stainless steel appliances and hide less sophisticated ones under the same line of sleek cabinetry.

You can cover it with large abstract original art. Wait------that's another poster's line.

Decopauge rice paper on the fridge. Copper leaf it. Paint a mural on it. If yu don't like white, nothing says to keep it white--except underneath whatever treatment you devise for it.

My favourite is the metal flat-bottomed bowl my dad used to knead chappati dough in every night. My mum had rheumatoid arthritis, and so he, an orthopaedic surgeon with a busy practice, would come home, wash his hands, and get down to it. The bowl is completely unremarkable - probably worth only a few cents but they brought it with them from India and kept using it even when they could finally afford better. The bowl is evocative of them, their regard for each other and my childhood. It also reminds me how far they travelled to better their lives and, ultimately, mine.

Mise en Place Design
chookchook2, I totally agree that designing for passive solar heating is an important aspect of design but not everyone has the option. House orientation, how many windows, do you have geothermal heat in your area, what is your foundation, does it rain a lot...? There are a lot of other questions that need to be answered and solved before assuming thermal mass is always going to work in the most efficient way to justify the expense of implementing said design. And as tile has thermal mass, don't forget the importance of good insulation and insulating properties that other materials will have (ie. cork, wood, marmoleum...)

Just catching up here and got a good laugh.
@Rredpenn and mers_2 we need to start a support group of wives of handy but hardheaded husbands. I know my SIL would join us. I too have gone years without ,much needed shelves because hubby designs some wonderful wood ones then balks at the price or time to build them. Then I catch flak for building wire or laminate shelves. Some how we can afford the big boy toys but not shelves for my art supplies.
Honey oak and honey do projects and hard head hubbies- got to love them!

Painting all of your kitchen cabinets, except for the two black accent ones, in creamy white would make the counter top, the floor and walls look great together. You kitchen would seem a bit larger as well.

Both antico bianco and viscount white will look good, but from a design perspective viscount white will look better with stainless steel appliances. Good luck!

Thanks everyone! Great response! Keep them coming please. I had a feeling the viscount white might look better with the ss. I can barely find any photos of kitchens with viscount white but there are hundreds with the bianco? Is there a reason for this? I haven't seen a slab of viscount for over a year but remember it had a marble look to it and I fell in love with it. Everyone seems to be getting bianco maybe why so many pictures.

Hi Ryan, I am really considering to knock down the wall, although I might spend more if I so that too :p I will speak to a contractor/designer soon. And will post the photos of the outcome.
Thank you everyone for the help :)
