I know the counters.. what cabs to go with?
Hi everyone! We are building a rustic/ scandinavian modern mashup and I thought choosing my kitchen cabinets would be so simple but it's not! Just to give you an idea of the overall vibe: the walls will be BM White Dove, wide white oak floors (probably euro character grade), black doors (except for the barn sliders), black windows with drywall returns, Montauk blue slate flooring anywhere that isn't wood (entry, mudroom, pantry).
Our kitchen has one long working wall with refrigerator, sink, and stove. In front of that is a 10'6" island with a small prep sink to one side, otherwise just a big expanse with 5 stools on the other side.In front of that, the dining table (vintage danish modern) and 12' black patio sliders looking outside to the someday patio.
So, I've chosen my countertops based on function: Black soapstone on the working wall and white macaubas quartzite on the island. Now to choose the cabinets?!
The won't be any uppers. Most of the working wall is eaten up by 9' window over the sink and the range hood which will be white dove with 2X6 matte soft-white subway tile behind.
I originally thought I would do white cabinets with the soapstone and wood with the quartzite, but the more I think about it, it seems too Southern Living for what we are doing (Not that there is ANYTHING wrong with a Southern Living vibe!)
So now I'm thinking danish style wood cabinets (maybe a natural walnut tone) with the soapstone and ebonized oak or some other black for the island with the quartzite.
Any thoughts? I'm fighting decision fatigue! And when I get to that point I talk too much and I see my GC's face take on that heroic patience expression. Awful.
