This AK kitchen from years back is the epitome of a kitchen with "great bones" and a totally neutral palette. If you were updating this space, what would you add or do to this kitchen?
Would you include some bold accents, or new paint? Or do you like it just the way it is?

I'd add a dark glaze to the paneled cabinets, change out the doors to the left of the sink
with glass, use a dramatic island light over the bar and add a small, very furniture-esque island to the center of the room with an oversized drum shade light. Some type of roller shade on the window. A bigger pull down faucet and a hammered, copper apron sink. Maybe even add some accent, copper or metallic tiles to the backsplash.
So, I was lucky to have Yamini skillfully and beautifully rebuild and recover my dining chairs only to decide that I would rather have abaca weave chairs instead. After living with my new
chairs for a couple weeks, I now want to go with a different color scheme in my kitchen. If anyone's interested in 4 custom upholstered dining chairs at a fair price, let me know! (The picture may not show the colors correctly, but it's a paisley print with sage green, hints of yellow and some grey undertones. I hear the yellow and grey combo is all the rage now! Hmmm...)

What is your asking price? (Like I don't have enough chairs already, but still).
This is my kitchen; it is about the size of two port-a-potties fused together. I recently primed the cabinets because they were a dark stained wood color. I will upload more pictures, if there are responses. I am looking for thoughts on how to make my kitchen more open feeling. Feel free to ask questions and leave comments/offer suggestions--thanks!

Take out those upper cabinets above the sink and expand the countertops to make a huge
breakfast bar out towards the door and add that cabinet space under the expanded counter top.
I place some hot food on a paper plate and placed it on the table. Now the table has white marks where the hot food was. How to I remove the stain without ruining the table. The table is dark cherry wood. (I think it is wood).

I just read on pinterest a home remedy. Take a hot iron and rub it over some cloth over the stain.
