Cab guy suggested, But, what do you think?
Perimeter cabinets are white, island is alder, range hood and range are black with a reclaimed wood edging around bottom of hood.
There will be two spice pullouts next to the range. He thinks it would look nice to go with the alder for the spice racks to tie in the island to the perimeter. I had planned on the white.
After many conversations here, I am second guessing the alder island with walnut top, and may actually go white island with walnut top. Just can't decide, I've always been set on the alder. So, as you can see, I'm second guessing a lot of things. Actual construction of cabinets are three weeks away so I can change materials up to then, however, I need to decide.
Perimeter counters will be soapstone, would a marble top on the alder look better? Or white cabinet with walnut top? I think I would like it either way, just concerned about going with the marble in a very informal, rustic looking kitchen.
