White kitchen cabinets or dark?

December 16, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I have a small space but its very light and will be open to a small den. It will be an L shaped kitchen with a large island with hardwood floors Having a time trying to decide if I want the white cabinets for a classic bright space or dark for a warm sophisticated space. The cabinets will also be the built ins on the den wall.

How about dark base cabinets and white/light wall and tall cabinets?

I have been looking through the "Basement" section of Houzz, trying to find the best colour combinations for making a basement apartment not look low and ... basementy.

Something I've discovered is that dark colours often make a room look bigger, taller, and I think contrast helps a lot. White walls, with dark columns/dressed posts, and/or dark floor-to-ceiling cabinetry can look elegant and heighten the appearance of one's space.

I'd go for a combination of dark island and light wall cabinets, or the reverse.
