Kitchen Cabinet Dilemma - White or Brown?
We have just closed on an open floor plan ranch-style house with a really poorly laid out kitchen which we will be gutting. We also will be ripping out the dated-looking white tile with black grout line flooring and replacing it with travertine-like porcelain tile.
When I look at kitchen pictures on Houzz, I tend to gravitate towards white shaker kitchens. The problem is, our great room furniture consists of med. brown leather seating, Stickley mission-style coffee & end tables and a vintage oak dining room table & chairs.
When I try to envision a white kitchen with the browns of our furniture and flooring, I just can't see how it would look good. The only thing that might help would be using a darker wood for the bar which would serve as a transition into the rest of the living area. Should I just forget about white kitchens and start concentrating on finding a natural wood color?
Looking for thoughts from the GW community on this!
