For contemporary looks, white is often the best. If you want light and bright, white is good also. It’s clean-looking. Then you have the option to punch it up with accessories in hot colours like cobalt blue, or paprika or whatever. And you can change the look quickly and easily with just the accessories, incl. drawer handles etc.

so i live in a good size apartment but everything is dated. the manager doesnt have the money to replace it so i was thinking of painting the wood kitchen cabinets instead. i chose orange for the cabinets and grey for the wall (i heard that combination is really nice and goes with the contemporary style) and painting high gloss on the cabinets. our countertop is light wood.

would it look good? oh i dont have wooden floors or stainless steel appliance but the living room has a contemporary style (open floor plan)

those colors sound great. you go w/ high gloss because that is a more modern feel but also because high gloss is easier to clean in a high traffic area like a kitchen. grease spatters are more easily wiped up.

BTW: while stainless steel is totally modern and cool, the new trend that’s making stainless steel look dated if for black appliances. Just last week I saw a black stainless steel refrigerator honing in on the black appliance trend.

if you can’t do anything w/ the floor but you want the feel of wood, look for a bamboo area rug/mat to put in your kitchen. they are available in a variety of colors. and you should be able to find something for under $50.
