Our house has beautiful walnut woodwork that we could never reproduce, so my thought is go with painted cabinets. The space is small and we are getting rid of a window, so we do not want anything dark. I am thinking that the white will flow with the house, where a light pine might not...but white is 15% more. Crazy. Never would have guessed that. So here is our current inspirations found here and at This Old House. Let me know what you think. Also thoughts on glass doors?
