Black? Like Gwenie Paltrow's kitchen...
Or white like this gorgeous kitchen...
That is the question my friends. Our counter top is a Corian and appears to be relatively new. It is tan with flecks of white, gray, and black. The flooring we are putting in is a dark, real wood that will be carried in from the living room to the kitchen and into the family room. The wood color is similar to the flooring in the picture of the white kitchen above.
Here is the kitchen in all its glory with the original owner's belongings.
What was your first thought? Those kitchen cabinets on the right have to go??? Well that's what we thought too... Day 1 we ripped out the cabinets. Excuse the 2 big boxes we used those to help us hold the cabinets in place while removing all the screws, nails, and whatever else had been holding those things up since 1986.
So what's the consensus....black or white?
We have purchased fixtures for over the kitchen table and the sink, those are brushed nickel and were cheap at Lowe's so the new cabinet hardware will be brushed nickel. We are also set on removing the top portion of the Corian that is used as a backsplash. These pieces are glued on and not a portion of the countertop. This will be replaced with white subway tile with white or a gray/black grout.
So do we go black or white?
* Sorry I do not have links for the 2 kitchen pictures, if you do, please advise and I will give appropriate credit.
** FYI - All the appliances will be replaced. All trim work will be white and all doors are getting replaced with new, white doors.
