I've been thinking about painting the lower halves of my kitchen cabinets a darker gray or putty color...here are a couple of examples of what I'm thinking:
I love the gray of this kitchen island. If we had an island, I'd do that, but since we don't, I was thinking about just the bottoms of our cabinets. What do you guys think? I can't decide if it would drive me nuts or not. Or maybe I should just paint all the cabinets? Hm.
Here is a look similar to what I'm thinking, though this kitchen is a little "airier" than my personal taste:
I love the hardware on those, too!
I saved this image because I thought the charcoal cabinets were so pretty! I could perhaps go for a super-dark color like that, too, but my living room walls are similar, and I'm not sure if that might annoy me.
here is another two-toned kitchen - not necessarily a fan of that green, though. I do love green cabinetry, but I like greens that read as browny-putty-khaki greens, rather than bluey ones.
love this kitchen below! I also need to get with the program and re-tile our backsplash, which I painted white a long time ago. It could be cool to tile our entire back wall to our kitchen, but I doubt that will happen...most likely just the backsplash. Dad, are you reading this? let's do it! :)
