Just purchased a house and want to update the kitchen as we do not like the colour of the cupboards. We are thinking of having dark brown overhead cupboards and gloss white cupboards below. Or having dark brown cupboards everywhere and replacing the back board to the island bench.
We preferred to keep the splashback because of cost but yet to decide.
Also we are thinking of installing pendant light from the island bench.
We wanted a contemporary look that feels very warm. At the moment all the white is making it feel very plain.
