Assistance with kitchen cabinet/floor pairings

Posted by mpk18 (My Page) on

Hi everyone! I would love some help brainstorming appropriate options for our new home. My style is more "contemporary glamour", and I was hoping to stain the floors a dark color (brown or dark gray). However, I feel that the cabinets and granite would not quite go with that look. What are your thoughts on painting the cabinets ivory, or staining them a dark color (maybe ebony?) I would also paint the walls a white or very light neutral color.

Thank you so much for your help!! It is really appreciated.

I think you can do a dark floor if you paint the cabs cream. Your granite and BS (same granite?) are dark so staining the cabs dark will just be overpowering and too much dark. Beware of a dark floor...It will show everything.
