Due to us having to change kitchen supplier and cabinet colour rather late in the day in our renovation, I am having trouble working with what I've got to pull together a cohesive scheme, help please!

Floor tiles are already down, these

Kitchen cabinet fronts will be IKEA Savedal which are white shaker.

Handles are already bought these and these

We have some exposed brick wall that we were going to leave exposed. Will it go with white cabinets?

Worktops - not committed yet. Seen some lovely granite called Silver Forest but will it work? here.
The other option, maybe a grey Ceasarstone from IKEA which is a mid/light grey without the movement and variation of granite.

Am thinking farmhouse sink. Looking for a sort of modern country look (we are in the the country) that would appeal to others if we sell in the future.

Can anyone help sort me out and tell me what will work?

The exposed brick wall, floor tiles and cabinet front (leaning against washing machine)

It does sound like it’s going to work.

The only thing I’m not sure is the exposed brick wall as the other stuff looks more polished to me.

Yes and it's the colour of the brick wall being warm and the rest cool I'm not sure on

I really like it and I like the difference between the exposed brickwork and the polished look of everything else!

What about an oak worktop?

With the brickwork, and the floor there's quite alone of 'stone'.

‘Modern farmhouse’ is my most searched topic on Pinterest! I love that style. What about keeping the brick work but painting it white? That way you get an interesting texture but it looks more polished.

Love the exposed brickwork, it adds warmth and texture. Agree a wooden work surface would work well.

I agree wooden worktops would look the best with the units and against the brick.

I like the contrast between the brick and the units and floorsmile

Thanks everyone. Well DH vetoed the white cupboard fronts, grrr, as being too pale with the pale floor.

So we have gone for:
Keeping the exposed brick
Walnut wood tops round the L-shaped part of the kitchen. The granite on the island.
And, feeling very daring here... black cupboards!! Eek.

Aiming for the kind of look in the picture. Please tell me it will all be ok!!!!

I think that looks lovely smile

Me too! I'm jealous!

I genuinely think that looks gorgeous, and much warmer than white cupboards. The brick is stunning.

Thank you all!

I still need to find a solution for 2 window sills and the 5cm bit of wall between the worktop and window sills. They were going to be granite but the worktop will now be wood and it doesn't seem right to do an upstand and window sills in wooden worktop material.

SecretSquirreller Sat 02-Dec-17 23:19:56

Any ideas?

SecretSquirreller Sat 02-Dec-17 23:29:03

Oh, according to Pinterest wooden upstand is a thing. Could just put normal window sills on I guess

Just do that bit same colour as window frame? Love the kitchen idea

cremedelashite Sun 03-Dec-17 07:41:46

I means sills as window frame. You might need an upstand of wood worktop or plaster painted the colour of the brick to tone in
