I know I've mentioned before that one of the projects I'd like to tackle in 2012 (are we project-crazy or what??) is my kitchen. While there's nothing totally wrong with it, I would like to transform it from standard updated kitchen to reflect a little more of 'me' and my style (err… OUR style, sorry hubs). I'm happy with the layout so it's just a matter of zhushing - back splash, painting lower cabinets, new uppers with glass-paned fronts and hanging the three pendants that have been sitting in my shed for months.
In keeping with my inspiration board, I aim to paint the bottom cabinets dark, like an inky navy or obsidian, and replace the top cabinets with crisp white uppers that have glass panes. Some people like the look of wood cabinets, some like the same color on the top and the bottom. Some like to mix it up; I think I fall into this category! The other option would be to paint them all white (top and bottom) for uniformity. But I like how the dark anchors the room versus a floatier feel with all white.
What do YOU think?
How do you feel about this trend of light on top, dark on bottom? Do you think it's here to stay? Do you prefer all one color?
