Cabinet Colors to Brighten Up a Kitchen

I have dark brown cabinets in my kitchen and I need a color to brighten it up. I also need suggestions for a floor color. I'm going with a wood laminate.

I would go with pastel shades to soften the dark cabinets and bring a little light into the room.

You can always add brighter colors with accessories.

I would stay with a light color of wood laminate flooring as dark shows so much. I'm going to be using the mottled stone look laminate flooring for our kitchen that won't show everything so much.

I have laminate in my kitchen and I love it and it looks great, but if I could do it over again, I would go with a light color of laminate. The dark shows every speck of dust and streaks if not washed correctly. Stick with a lighter color and when you wash it wash the length of the laminate not across the short side.
