What Houzz contributors are saying:
You can also paint the backs of your cabinets. For a nice professional finish, remove the shelves if possible, and apply painter’s tape to the frames and other surfaces you do not wish to paint. As I have an unsteady hand, I tend to opt for a wide tape — that way even if my brush slips a bit, my cabinets are still protected.This kitchen scheme goes the extra mile, with a painted panel of sunny yellow above a white-tiled backsplash. This simple DIY trick really adds dimension to the kitchen.
Open shelves are excellent accent color candidates. These cabinets pick up the wall color, creating an interesting play between the two.
“Anyone can do this — just remove the doors from your upper cabinets and paint the backs a bright hue.” — Laura GaskillFor those considering open shelving, this is an easy way to get the look and add color to the kitchen, all for the cost of a small can of paint. The best part is, if you try it out and it doesn’t work for you, you can simply reattach the cabinet doors.Full story: 12 Ideas for a Knockout Kitchen
The couple limited the upper cabinetry to a small built-in above the fridge and open shelving around the stove. The open shelves cut costs and show off their collection of jadeite and Franciscan ceramic plates. Cabinets: Creative Custom Cabinetry; countertops: Andreas Marble

Ah ha!!! I discovered Blue Star ranges at a local appliance store yesterday (July 6). Search this morning has been for Blue Star ranges only. This is the first 30” I have found on Houzz. Only comes in stainless but knobs are available in any color. Search on Blue Star website notes Ferguson’s in Bozeman is both a dealer and provides servicing. Leah, are they a good store? Until and unless a better option is presented to me, I am stuck on having a Blue Star. Has to do with the grates and overall performance. I will even embrace the gas oven. Lead time appears to be at least three months. Made in Pennsylvania. Considering 30” instead of 36” only because of cost. Would prefer 36”.
