Dark Cabinets in a really truly tiny kitchen
My current kitchen in my new (to me) NYC coop is 6'x5'7". I cannot function in it to say the least. All my kitchen stuff from my old place are still in boxes and I've been living here since Sept 07. I am going to knock down a wall between the kitchen and a closet but that is all the space I can expand into. My new BIG kitchen will then be a whooping 9'3" x 5'7". I've look online at all the advice about cabinet color being light in small spaces. I've also looked on this site and agree with many of you that some small kitchens look great with dark cabinets despite conventional wisdom. I don't want white cabinets, I don't know why, I just don't. I guess my question is this - Is this kitchen just too small for really dark cabinets? Should I stay with lighter woods? I'm also stuck on door style. I was thinking of a shaker style with wide stiles (I think that's what they're called) but now I don't know. I have too many things I regret and I don't want this to be one of them. Thank you for any suggestions.
