So want to get peoples opinion on something. I just recently bought a house in Kansas. I loved the house because of all the original woodwork, which I plan to keep and restore. The kitchen however is horrible so I plan on gutting it and starting over.
My question is in regards to the cabinet color. I really like the dark Java or Merlot colored cabinets. The woodwork in the house is more of a chestnut color. I want to keep the look of the house, which was built in 1910. Do you think the colors would clash too much? Would the darker cabinets come out too modern vs the rest of the house? Anyone have any ideas or pics on how to use the darker cabinet but still keep the old timey feel of the house. Sorry I don't have any pics yet, I don't close for another week
