I'm completely remodeling the kitchen in a fixer upper I just bought. My main inspiration was this glass tile backsplash that I fell in love with. Then I found a great quartz countertop to go with it that Is a very light cream color. The countertop has a slight sparkle to it but nothing to much pattern wise. The floors are a medium tone wood.
So the guy at home depot when I was discussing cabinets told me I should go with a dark cabinet color like a chocolate to create contrast with the cabinets. I know that most people do that either light cabinets/dark counters or dark cabinets/light counters. I do like the chocolate colored cabinets but I really like the look of these cream colored cabinets I saw in a sample design.
I realize it's my house and technically I can do whatever I want but I am very afraid of making a horrible choice and having an ugly kitchen since this isn't the sort of thing you redo every 5 years. Plus I want to create something that will sell well when I'm ready to move on.
My question is, Is it a bad idea to have light cabinets and a light countertop together? Does anyone here have something like that, do you think it looks good?
There will be a dark color on the wall and there is color in the backsplash as well as wood floors so the whole thing won't be light and washed out. The house was built in the 20s so I'm trying to go with a traditional feel overall.
Thanks for any input
