Countertop choices with natural maple cabinets ?
I'm on the search for countertop choices for my Shaker style natural (unstained) maple cabinets. I have white appliances (they're nearly new). I'm not in love with how most of the kitchens that have my style & wood color cabinets are mostly contemporary- I'm a little more traditional. I'm searching for ideas. I have looked at FKB and I've seen a few kitchens that are nice but not exactly what I was looking for.
We are currently redoing our kitchen island. I think we've decided to stain the island a dark mahogany and do Zodiaq Cygnus Pearl (or something similar) for the countertop. We won't redo the rest of the cabinets though.
I kind of like the look of soapstone but dh is opposed to it (maintenance). Has anyone done natural maple cabinets with wood countertops? I was wondering what it would look like with deep mahogany wood countertops.
Thanks for any input.
