Kitchen Help Needed!!! What color cabinets to do???

gmangiaApril 11, 2011

I need help... on what color kitchen cabinet to do. I love deep contrasts weather it's light/dark....dark/light. I'm torn between going with a antique-y white or go with a med/dark wood color. I am breaking the wall between the kitchen and dining room to make way for a peninsula (have 3 kids and the formal dining room and small eat in kitchen just isn't cutting it when we have lots of guests. Trying to achieve a family friendly but traditional/transitional look (house is side hall colonial). The dining room is attached to a large living room with built in cabinetry painted white. My fear is if I go with white kitchen, then the house will be too white....another fear is if I go with a med/dark wood tone, will it close up the kitchen? On the other side of the kitchen is a large den. I'll try to post pictures but need help...thanks

What color wood do u have currently in surrounding rooms?
What i am thinking of doing is carmel colored maple for main cabinets and cream colored island and hutch for he DR. We r doing something very similar..opening up the space..just an opinion..dark wood needs a lot of dusting ..I have it in our MB and would never get it again...i have kids also.
See if you can post some pics of current space.
