The title of my original post didn't make sense… sorry

Finalizing my choices for our kitchen redo.

We decided to paint the "bar" black. This will have a light colored Vicostone counter in "Carrara" and backsplash in a blueish/gray subway. We are switching out the door of the double cabinet on the right for glass fronts. There will be a wine fridge in place of the bar sink cabinet, lower right; and a microwave hung below the right cabinet. It will be trimmed to look "built in". We are donating the fish tank.

Cabinet color:


The island will also be painted ebony with the same top.

Other cabinetry in the kitchen will be painted Simply White

I should mention that the cabinet will not be lit on the inside. But there are two recessed halogen lights in the ceiling area of the bar.

This is the only example I've found:

What do you think?
