Help with finishes! Too white?
I am trying to pick all of my kitchen finishes and this is much harder than I thought! The home is craftsman style and an open floorplan. I have spent many hours on houzz trying to pull finishes together and I'm having trouble picturing the end result! We have decided on polished nickel pendants and faucet.
I am drawn to 2x8 white subway tiles with crackle glaze, white granite or quartzite countertops and white cabinets with a light glaze. Then, I started thinking this was all getting too white! The floors and island will be a medium brown stained wood, but is that enough contrast? I thought about doing the back countertops a matte black, but the horrors of obsessing over cleaning fingerprints non-stop scared me off. The countertops we found with more color seem to be too thin at 2cm. So, what do you think? Too sterile looking or stunning?
