Color/wood and door style of cabinets dilemma? Please help

dkotovFebruary 25, 2013

I am lost - my floors are golden oak hardwood original for 1952 house.
My first pick was off white dark glazed cabinets with maybe darker stain on the floors later but now looking at the painted cabinets pricing, I probably should stay with some type of wood stain finish ( budget is tight). I have trouble picking the color - my dining table is more rustic dark brown stain and the house is not modern ( transitional ). Which color of cabinets should I go with so they don't fight with the golden color hardwood and dark table and chairs. I don't like really dark kitchens, I want something warmer but which will be in the same color palette and not too red or orange.
I am not a big fan of shaker style �" like more sleek door but not too modern - thank you!

Which lines have you looked at painted cabnets in? Some are more affordable than others. And you may not need painted. There are some laminates that can work. I just did a whole kitchen with hutch and V groove peninsula back, glass doors, drawers, and roll out trays in Aristokraft Durham door for a couple and the total was only 6K.

There are plenty of affordable choices available! Are you up for DIY painting and glazing yourself?

No, I am not DYI - need to order the cabinets and hire a contractor - here are some pics of the space. Thank you for your advice!

It was just ordered, so no pics yet, but here is one from the Aristokraft website. Full disclosure: I'm a KD who sells Aristokraft for ProSource, but any local company that handles the same product can help you. I'd encourage you to explore local custom cabinet makers as well.

This is a rendering, so it has it's limitations. The kitchen is U shaped, 107"x84", and the fridge run is 93".
