I have bought an home built in the 70’s. The woman that I purchased it from updated the kitchen 5 years ago. Cabinets and appliances all in great shape. We did make structural changes but kept exiting cabinets and appliances. Put in an island and new countertops, Mont Blanc quartzite. Contractor said once everything is done the cabinets will tie in. Even though the floor is not stained yet I cannot see it happening. I still need to do my back splash and floors. My dilemma is do I paint or stain the cabinets. My island is stained coffee and love the look with the Mont Blanc countertop. I know white cabinets is the trend and has been for awhile. If I stain them they would be the same as the island. Would this be too dark. I do have a lot of natural light. Any suggestions or pictures would be appreciated
