Painting oak kitchen cabinets, two tone or all same?

We are going to have our oak kitchen cabinets painted to help update the space. Deciding between painting lowers Benjamin Moore Knoxville Gray and uppers Sherwin Williams Pure White OR painting all the cabinets Benjamin Moore Knoxville Gray. We will changing out the counter to something light, probably white with a veining or variation to it and also adding a back splash. We also plan to update the wall color to something fresh and light, possibly Sherwin Williams Crushed Ice. The most important question I have is will my kitchen support uppers and lowers painted the same color, or will it feel too dark? It's so hard to envision. I have a rendering from Benjamin Moore's website to help show my vision.
