Paint color for kitchen cabs and island?
You might recall this earlier thread about DH and I buying a new house and wondering if it makes sense to paint the kitchen cabinets. http://ths.gardenweb.com/forums/load/decor/msg0711480217288.html?64
The votes were unanimous and, after talking it over, we decided to hire a professional painting contractor to take on that project since (1) we're going to be far too busy with moving and other projects between this house and our rental property; and (2) we have a painting contractor in the family and he has the equipment to spray them. He's also going to paint a bathroom vanity I posted about in a separate thread. I'll be doing lots of other painting throughout the house.
Now I need help choosing paint colors! Pretty please. :) We want a soft white or antique white for the main cabinets but nothing too yellow. The island will be painted a different color and I think the advice from the previous thread was to avoid grey and possibly also blue because of the granite color. So perhaps something in the soft green family? What would you do?
Here's a closer photo of the granite, though it's not great lighting. This is of the desk area in the kitchen but it's the same as the rest.
- I'm thinking simple ORB knobs for cabs and cup pulls for the drawers. Does that sound like the way to go?
- The perimeter of the island needs work so should we go with more beadboard, or board and batten, or...?
- Should I talk DH into removing the existing counter supports under the island granite and replacing them with furniture legs?
Thank you all again for all the help! I'd be so overwhelmed and anxious without all of you available to lend your design expertise.
