Dear AT,

I have a typical NYC apartment kitchen - a bit dingy (no natural light to speak of), a bit cramped, and with really ugly cabinets.

I rent, and can't paint the walls, but I am allowed to change the cabinets.

What color should I paint them?

I'd like to go white, but am worried it will look washed out against the odd off-white color of the walls.

Any suggestions?

I'm open to pretty much anything.

I'm also thinking about covering the floor in cheap, but durable Flor tiles, so don't let the horrifying fake-wood linoleum stop you. Thanks! Meg
