@ sls decorator i agree with Sharonna misha designs..i had a similar situation where there was a wall oven where a counter should be to the right of the stove. We did white uppers, and a soft blue green on the lowers. When we got to that weird oven cabinet, i decided to cut the oven "cabinet" out then used wood prestained flooring i had leftover to use as the counter. All the rest of the counter tops i did with a matte marble ( yep self stick tile...miniscule budget it needed to b e cleaned up for $25 new "counter". only had $800 to do the entire kitchen including an island.) then the that entire upper cabinet, wood counter we added, then drawers below...the upper cabinet was 24 inches DEEP so it was really odd & weird, i decided in that corner cabinet and drawer below painted it all in white. it looks great still trying to stretch time out until i have enough $ to gut to studs. If that never happens, i am continually freshing up insides of these 60 yo solid wood cabinets.

I was considering a way to liven up my white “tired” kitchen and the suggestion of adding navy did the trick. I hired a company called NHance to repaint the cupboards white and change the island to navy. Totally changes the look of the room and I couldn’t be happier.
