We updated our kitchen when we purchased our 1980s house about 7 years ago. The kitchen had a tile floor (in perfect condition) that would have been expensive to replace. I painted the everything in the kitchen to match the cream tile floor to make the kitchen seem larger and less busy. Black counters and appliances provided contrast. I've been happy with the result. Black appliances have their place!

Painted cabinets especially white, look cheap, childish and remind me of someone's laundry room. Nice to see the Medium warm browns with black appliances or countertops.- classy. Charcoal countertops would do as well.

LOLOL, someone got up on the wrong side of bed. Painted cabinets do not make a room look childish or cheap. Say that to some of the $500,000 to multi-million dollar homes in the county I live. Cabinets of any color, painted or stained wood are nice and are chosen for the style of the owner.
