Help Kitchen Ideas for St. Charles Cabinets
Hi, I am new to this forum, but have read many posts in trying to make decisions for my kitchen.
We recently purchased some St. Charles cabinets from I believe 1964 (the picture is from the Craigslist posting, the cabinets are currently in storage. My kitchen is smaller and has a different configuration). They are yellow steel with maple doors on the upper cabinets.
I am trying desperately to decide on countertops and flooring. Retrorenovation.com was going to feature my cabinets as a design dilemma but the date has passed and they have not done so. The reset date was today but it looks like it's not happening, and I will be purchasing countertops fairly soon.
I can't make up my mind at all, other than the countertops will be laminate. Can't decide on colors, and edges. Maybe a flat edge then do the aluminum edging? Maybe not? The countertops place told me the "classic edge" would double the cost of the countertops, and that's the only way to do the aluminum edging). I originally thought black countertops and a black and white checkerboard floor. But I got some great flooring samples from Azrock, and not I can't decide at all.
I would appreciate any opinions. I have more pictures from the Craigslist ad, and I do have pictures of my current kitchen configuration, although it is under construction at this time.
Thanks so much!
