Kitchen Renovation - Right color countertops
My wife and I are purchasing a fixer upper. The kitchen cabinets are currently light maple but my wife wants to repaint the cabinets white/or off white with dark glazing outline. We plan to re-stain the hardwood dark walnut. I'm currently in debate on what color granite to use for the countertops (including the island). We will be painting the walls light gray (almost taupe color) and the appliances will be stainless steel.
I was thinking about using Maroon Cahiba (Brown Antique) but read on this board that white cabinets and black/or too dark countertops is dated. I'm also worried that the dark walnut will take away from the brown antique countertops.
Any thoughts on what would be a good granite color match for the countertops? Open to hardware colors as well.
