Despite the current trend of using white painted cabinets many people still love the warmth of natural wood and this project is a great example of how to balance a stained finish and dark granite but still keep bright in a small area. The original kitchen had inadequate lighting, builder grade oak cabinets, white appliances, dated green wallpaper and mossy green granite. There was also an open space aka dust collection area above the wall cabinets instead of taking cabinets to ceiling. The layers of flooring created a transition height change from the wood flooring in adjacent rooms by about 1 1/2″. The original footprint for cabinets wasted what could have been a lot of storage area and counter space. The owners had fit a hutch in for storage since the cabinets were lacking.
