Happy holidays! I sure could use some help from the experts on how to visually balance out our kitchen. We just remodeled and added open shelving on the top since we expanded the kitchen counter out to gain more space. The drawers to the right of the stove are made out of reclaim wood, but seem to be a bit out of balance with the other white cabinets. I thought the reclaim wood on the outsides of the counter would balance this out, but I am not sure if I should white wash the wood on the drawers or not. The size difference between the right and left of the stove also seems to be throwing things off. Should I paint the reclaim wood white? Any other suggestions for staging that would trick the eye?
I also plan to add corner shelves to the end of the upper cabinet.
