    I think if you go much darker than what they already are, you are going to make the room appear much to dark. I like the lighter cabinets much better!

    Is there any grey in your countertop?If so,I would go with grey.It will give you a clean,crisp look with the white appliances and not be too harsh a contrast with the cooktop.

    Or,do the uppers white and the lower cabinets grey or dark brown.

    Honestly, I don’t think the color of the cabinets looks dated, but I love natural wood and it breaks my heart to think of covering it up with paint! You’ve got such a neutral color on the walls, have you thought about painting them a really bold color to spice it up? Walls are way easier to paint over when you don’t want the color anymore than wood is.

    By far the second picture. The first picture is a NO. The white appliances look great with the color cabinets in pic 2. I’d definitely go that route.

    I don’t know if you’re going to have kids in the future or have them now…. but my brother&SIL just got all stainless appliances and my SIL wants to scream every day.  There are fingerprints on everything and it’s just a basic P.I.T.A. to clean them up everyday (she readily admits to being a little anal).  Just a thought about the stainless 😀

    Generally I really like dark cabinets but I think the lighter ones looks better!

    What about gray cabinets? I’ve been seeing those more lately and they’re kind of growing on me. I think it would look nice with white appliances!

    I would just go two-tone with your cabinetry.  The run of cabinets on the left side of the picture, with the double oven, paint those white, and the other cabinets, whatever shade you like, but probably a “greige” colour to tie in your countertops.  Then, you can update your fridge, microwave and dishwasher in whichever you prefer, but personally I’d go stainless because it contrasts less with colour scheme.

    @pinkshoes:  If you pick a grey with brown undertone, it will coordinate with the counter. It’s hard to know what the color of the island is from an online pic, but there is no reason it couldn’t be a different color as it is a separate piece of furniture.
