Need help choosing color for cabinets ASAP!!


Sorry for the frantic nature of the title, but I have professional painters at my house starting the prep work to paint my kitchen cabinets. I don't have time to do it my self, and they did a great job on my brother's house.

I recently installed ceramic tile on my counter tops, and have a picture enclosed. The tile is a tan/neutral color. I will eventually redo the floors, probably wood, or a wood like laminate.

I am totally baffled as to a color that will go well with the new countertops, and then also look good with wood floors. I hope someone out has some good suggestions. I need to pick the paint by Sunday.

And just so you don't think I am a total idiot, I had a color picked out, but today when I saw it in daylight with my counter tops, I realized it would not work.

Thanks a lot in advance!!!

Thanks Daryl. I have thought about white, but my appliances and sink and faucet are white. Maybe I should be looking at a beige or off white color. My initial instinct was to do a darker, almost chocolate brown.

Here are some links to better photos of my kitchen:

My vote is for very light Beigh but if you have time maybe you can get some large poster paper and do a few samples to get a idea what you mght like.

I would go light also. That burn from the exhaust fan bothers me. Was that a short when they took the hood out?

I think I would go with white. If you went with a darker color, I think the white appliances would stand out. I prefer a stainless color appliance with darker cabinets.

If the painters could pull it off, a nice off white antiqued look would look really nice.

Whatever you decide, please post up some pictures after the painting is complete. The counter-tops looks great!
