Basement kitchenette - White or Stained??

likewhatyoudoMay 28, 2013

I am planning a basement kitchenette. I do in home child care and use my basement kitchen every day. I want to put in white cabinets but DH wants stained cabinets . Most basement bar pictures I look at have stained cabinetry.
This basement is a view/walk out and gets lots of light from 2 large windows and a sliding glass door so I am not concerned about it being too dark.

This is the current basement wet bar. We are basically putting in a u shaped kitchen with a 2 burner induction cook top, microwave, toaster oven, dishwasher and raised bar.

Would you put in white or stained?

I think stained would be more compatible with the overall look of what's already going on with the furniture and flooring.
