Help me choose some colors here (granite, backsplash, cabinets)
We're starting to plan a kitchen remodel... and I'm a complete dork when it comes to design. We would like to take out the old white tiles, put on granite, paint the room, add a backsplash and refinish the cabinets.
Cabinets are not be replaced (due to cost) -- only to be recolored (refinished). Flooring was put in by the previous owner recently, so it stays. Appliances are new, except the fridge, which may or may not be changed depending on the overall remodel cost.
So my questions:
1. What color for granite (golds or blacks)?
2. What color for cabinets (white or dark walnut)?
3. What backsplash?
I'm trying to decide between:
a) White cabinets, black granite and a gray mosaic backsplash, or
b) Dark walnut cabinets, Gold granite and a rust/maroon mosaic backsplash.
Any opinions? Any tips? THANKS!
