Personally, i think my builder-provided kitchen is anything but dull and depressing.

I have golden yellow walls in the kitchen and honey colored cabinets. What color can I do my cabinets to match this? My floor is a light brick color. I want to keep an airy, light feeling!

Is having sink in the island a trend? In the house we bought, the sink is in the island which I am totally against as we have the dining table next to it. We don’t have a separate formal dining room or area. when entertaining guests, i prefer the island to be clean and cleared and avoid having to place used dishes. We do have a butler’s pantry area where I prefer to relocate the sink and dishwasher. My realtor is against my idea as it might devalue the house.
