In terms of white cupboards though, they are relatively easy to keep clean. We have a temp kitchen and the sink unit has white cupboard doors and back. I rarely notice marks on it even when they are there.
A grey and white scheme is very classic and neutral. Plus you can jazz it up with pretty much any colour you want.
We did a 'Kitchen Refresher'
SO painted the old laminate cupboards and benchtop n a white industrial paint...added some new handles etc.
Was originally going to go for beige/neutral tones - but after finding some marble mosiacs on sale for the splash back- grey seemed to be a better option. I went with a Taubmans colour 'sheer hose'.
I do love the Dulux whit range though.
..still a bit of a work in progress - but here is a pic
It was a nightmare working out what to do with the fireplace, a really odd shaped room. DH did it all, made the benchtops and island.
Looks gorgeous FITB
The paint/sealer/primer etc cost me about $500 - and I still have half of it left
Just more "time and effort" in prep and painting - it was pretty stinky.
(you should be able to see what it looked like previously if you scroll through that album).
In hindsight - I would get Granite transformations or a similar company to do the bench top (as it has small chips in places from a rough DP and kids) - but the cupboard doors look fine!
..I don't know how to post the pic any other way sorry babyla (so not techy) - your island is awesome!
