What color should I paint my kitchen cabinets?

When I bought my condo they came with typical 90's kitchen cabinets, which are very blah. They are not real wood and have no molding on them. I have tried painting them white, but due to my black and stainless steal appliances the white paint just doesn't work. I would like to paint them black. I have Olive green paint on my walls for your info. Do you think its a good idea to paint the cabinets in such a dark color?

I think black would look cool or else that textured aluminum paint that has the hammered finish. Although I think that might only be available in a spray which could be rather inconvenient for cabinets. If you do them black be sure to splurge on some eye-catching stainless steel hardware (or stainless steel-look). I bet black would look pretty nice with your walls providing your countertops and/or your flooring isn't too dark. Post some pix when your done. (09/19/2006)
