What color should I paint my kitchen cabinets? I have black granite countertops, stainless backsplash and a butcherblock built in table/bar?

If you want color and depending on your floor and wall colors, a pale sage green would look nice. It's not too dark, would give you color but not too much, and would blend with the black and stainless. Then you could choose accent colors in your decorations. (08/20/2009)
I know this is not a "conventional" kitchen cabinet color, but I had the opportunity to help paint a kitchen (not cabinets) this color and was amazed at how beautiful it turned out. The color? Red, with granite counter tops and stainless steel accents. I think this would really be pretty. Good luck. (08/20/2009)
Honestly, I'd just paint them white and change out your cabinet knobs to a brushed nickel finish to coordinate with your stainless backsplash. You could add interest by removing some cabinet doors for open shelving, or cutting out the centers of a few cabinet doors and adding glass. If you want to add color in your kitchen, I'd suggest using colorful canisters, small appliances (toaster, coffee maker, etc), or curtains, because these things are easier to replace than repainting an entire kitchen full of cabinetry would be.
