    Default Kitchen colours, your thoughts

    Just wanting some opinions on two kitchen colour features. We are supposed to be choosing them on Wednesday, we already had one chosen but are now doubting our choice.

    We have copied these colours. Option 1:

    But we also really like this one. Option 2:

    So, which do you prefer? Option 1 or Option 2?

    I like 1 better but depending on the amount of natural light in the kitchen it might be worthwhile thinking about a lighter splash back - similar to no 2.

    Both are nice choices, but I think I prefer number 2.

    As for natural light, we will have plenty. There is sliding door access to the kitchen from the alfresco, we will also be having a splash back window too, like in this photo:

    I actually prefer the colours in the pic above (pic no 3 I guess), I think they will date better and serve you well longer term.

    Then number one for sure - I like the texture in the finish.

    The main reason why we are doubting our first option is because we will have a similar wood grain in the bathrooms and ensuite, so we don't want to over do it, with the wood grain, you know?
    I much prefer the wood grain though.

    It's too white for us, we have similar colours to that in our current house and we hate it.

    If the rooms aren't close together I don't think it should be an issue. Just call it cohesive

    I've just realised the grain is similar to our main bathroom vanity so maybe that is why I am drawn to it!
