We are on a tight budget and would like to paint or restain cabinets. We have black appliances and new ones are out of the question. What would be the best color to go with on the cabinets and walls?

There are also more cabinets on the other side where I was standing to take the picture. Any input about a backsplash, counter top, wall color, cabinet color would be greatly appreciated!

I would paint the cabinets white and use a medium dark or black countertop. Alternately you could paint all the bottom cabinets black with a white countertop and paint the uppers white. See examples of both below.

I would think about replacing the slate tile on the bar area with painted beadboard.
