What to do with maple cabinets
I just had some beautiful White Springs granite installed. I picked a slab that featured more gold, but when it was installed, the gold didn't really show up enough to tie in the maple cabinets. The granite looks taupe compared to the maple, although it's creamier than appears in my photos. I thought about staining, but I have 46 drawers and doors plus maple molding at the ceiling and the bid to refinish was $2800. The contractor recommended not painting because these are premium solid maple.
I know this is very subjective, but I would like to hear opinions: Would you paint, stain or find a way to tie it all in with decor? I also need to replace the knobs. Thanks!
