What wood for modern slab cabs/ and floor color
Kitchen will be modern, sort of MCM-lite.
House is 1951. Meeting with cab maker tomorrow and need to finalize decision.
Slab cabs, finger pulls. Dark bases, white uppers, of which there are only 4 , including fridge box and one of those has no doors (for cookbooks). Open shelves around hood.
Would like something that has a visible horizontal grain like walnut, but pretty sure I can't afford walnut. He wants to do maple, but I don't think that will be same look I'm going for. Will kitchen still look modern/mid century with dark maple cabinets? Or poplar?
Is there a poor man walnut? Or other idea?
Finally, need to order floor tile. 24" tile in white or grey. This brick is one one wall in kitchen counters will be white quartz. (Door is just a sample to approximate color ideas)
