Can't decide if I should change the color of these cabinets to white or leave their original color. What do you think?
White
Original color

I think if you can't decide you should not paint the wood-no going back from that decision. I would leave the wood and add some color in accessories or back splash.

underedenx is so right - the cabinets are beautiful and impressive. The range is such a great focal point. Some color in a backsplash would really help. For interest, you might have one of those tile installations above the range - Houzz kitchens have some wonderful ones pictured.

99% of the time, painting cabinets is the right way to go, but your case is the 1% exception. They are absolutely beautiful - don't paint.

Don't paint, change the counter tops and have a tile designer give you a focal point

I would do a granite with a lot of movement, then do a full splash with movement coming up behind the range.

Paint the upper cabinets only. Choose a color that is muddied (has black mixed in) and you love. Not black (way too dark, defeats the purpose of painting). Have a professional do the work. Choose your backsplash at the same time - first might be easier, find a few you really like and then pick the paint color. And the backsplash does not have to have black in it! In fact, I would say it shouldn't because then the stove and vent will really pop. The upper cabinets to the left are distracting - off center. I would remove them and build something to balance the window on the right, or just keep the smaller cabinet. You can do anything there since you're going to paint it!

Those are gorgeous cabinets! Maybe look into re-staining them a lighter color for a different look. IMO, high quality cabinets like those shouldn't be painted. Good luck....

Keep the range and cabinets! New flooring...look at French limestone to go with that French range, in a large Ashlar format. New counter tops (maybe a quartz with a marble look) and limestone backsplash. Add some pot racks either side of the range and hang some nice copper pots and pans.. Or even a U-shaped rack to keep the cookware within easy reach. Play up that

I almost always vote to paint, but not this time. I agree backsplash would enhance and Ironwood's floor suggestion is perfect. Travertine in the versailles pattern (maybe that is similar to Ironwood's idea) would also work.

I would paint the window trim white and leave cabinets alone.

Paint the window trim and put in a back spash, and you will love it.

No paint, and yes to new tile floor and new backspash. So much right with that room. True to period, functional, great sink and awesome stove .Cabinets are lovely.
