island - paint or stain?
We're remodeling our kitchen. Our cabinets will be stained a dark walnut. We have gray Silestone countertop with flecks of cream, black, & orangey-tan/brown. The island is new wood. I bought paint for the island - a cream color & planned to highlight with taupe in the crevises. Now my thinking is: to have a finish that is different from the cabinets is really trendy now. That's means it is not a classic look, and trendy now means out of style in a few years. This remodel is going to have to last us. What's your opinion? Stain the island to match the cabinets or paint cream color? Thanks for your help!
