    I love both pics you've posted!

    Same!

    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.

    Your splash back Is amazing! I adore it. How much did it cost to do your own bench top and cupboards yourself (if you don't mind me asking) it looks great!

    Thanks
    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!
