Initially, I loved the look of the crisp white cabinets but over time they've become a bit of a pain. It's hard enough to keep the countertops a bright white (bleach is the best remedy), but because I'm a bit of a sloppy cook and Alan is a bit of a sloppy dishwasher, the bottom cabinets have become stained and chipped and all around unsightly. You can't tell from far away, but close up it's actually kind of disgusting. I'll spare you the photographic evidence. We don't have the wherewithal to change the flooring at this point, but I think we could do something about the bottom cabinets with a gallon of paint and some elbow grease.
So, I'm kind of thinking black bottom cabinets and white uppers. Some inspiration pics:
