How Do You Like Your Kitchens??

My favorite look is an all white kitchen... white cabinets, some sort of white stone for the counters and some sort of white tile backsplash. {Or, the same white stone carried up as the backsplash... dreamy!!} But as our design tastes tend to change over time, I have also recently had my eye on the look of painted cabinetry in soft, muted colors. Taupe/gray cabinets with that same white stone lends depth and charm. Here is a round up of some great kitchens, where they have done just that!

Mix it up with bold contrast...


Black and white...


Now, one might argue that these kitchens are gorgeous already. I mean, look at them??? Is that really how mine would look if I painted my cabinets? So, I thought it would be fun to also include an amazing before and after of a kitchen that changed their builder grade cabinets from a stained finish to a wow gray! Julia, from the blog Hooked on Houses, showed us this...

I will always love an all white kitchen but I too am loving the gray look on cabinets lately. In this year's DC design house the butlers pantry cabinetry is a dark gray/ almost navy color and I instantly fell in love! Whether or not I would be brave enough to do this in my own kitchen I don't know, but I love the look.
