Kitchen Countertops for Island
Dh is currently working on revamping our multi-level kitchen island and making it one level with seating.
I'm at a loss as to what color the countertop should be. I'm either thinking of gray (as in slate-type with slate tile backsplash) or brown. The cabinets are natural maple and currently they read YELLOW to me. Most of the kitchens I've seen with my cabinet style and color are modern but I'm not a super modern sort of person.
I'm thinking of going with a solid surface countertop (I think granite is too expensive) and we will with in a year replace the other kitchen countertops (either with laminate or solid surface).
Like I said, the kitchen cabinets are natural maple (they have to stay), the wall color is SW Latte (I'm thinking of changing this...maybe to a rust color?), the hardware can change but the tile flooring and appliances have to stay.
Before kitchen was painted Latte:
The room currently is open to the LR which is painted SW Svelte Sage. Dh and I are giving heavy consideration to making a partial wall between the DR and LR.
Thanks for any input!
