Help Me Design My Kitchen!!


My previous post about staining my island cabinets has gotten the creative juices flowing! In the past I have shown you some of my other kitchen inspiration but it is time to make some hard and fast decisions.

Here is what my room looks like now:
  I already know I am going to change the color of the rest of the cabinets, but exactly HOW I am going to do that is a tougher decision. Thank goodness Benjamin Moore has a great "Paint your room" online tool.  You can upload your photo, and select different color schemes.  Here are the three options I am considering:

ONE: I could paint them ALL light.


It would look a lot like this:

I have more examples of this color scheme on this previous post.

 TWO: I could stain them all to match the island.  
 I really like this look.  In fact I LOVE it, but there is only one small window in the kitchen, and that is a LOT of uninterrupted cabinets. I think it would feel like a cave. Although, maybe not. These examples are beautiful:

THREE: Light upper cabinets, dark lowers.  
 The mis-matched cabinet thing is pretty popular right now.  Here are some examples of this look:

So now you understand my dilemma.  They are all beautiful, but  I need to figure out which would work best in my space.
Which one do you like?  
One, two or three?
