Another thing I should've asked originally. Are the cabinets painted or stained wood? Or polyurethane (not sure that's the right word)?

I have a galley kitchen
Although it’s narrow, think long hallway, with only a sliding door on one end and no windows
it’s light and airy
White cabinets high gloss, grey granite, backsplash the same as counter top
I love my kitchen

It would be a good idea to research thermofoil cabinets from reliable stores like Ikea, Home depot, or Lowes. I have thermofoil white cabinets from Home Depot that are over 20 years old and the door/drawer fronts still look great. The inner fiberboard is not holding up as well but still functional. The down side is that thermofoil is usually used on lower quality cabinets but the upside is that they are inexpensive and easy to clean.

Before you buy, please research thermofoil with people you know who have it because frum families use and have different wear and tear on their kitchen then the average American family.

Here is more info:
"What Is a Thermofoil Cabinet? Thermofoil is a deceptive name as it has no metal content. Instead, it is a thin layer of vinyl that is vacuum-pressed onto cabinet doors and drawer fronts, which are typically constructed of medium-density fiberboard (MDF).

Moisture Resistance: Known for its superior moisture resistance, Thermofoil cabinets are perfect for both kitchen and bathroom use. However, they are not entirely waterproof, so be aware of damage to avoid water seeping into the core MDF and causing irreversible damage."

Thanks again for all the responses, I wasn't seriously considering white or a light color when I started the thread but now I am.

My mother has a tiny kitchen that she redid a little over 20 years ago with white high gloss cabinets. She used a white tile for the backsplash and has dark countertops. She has a white tiles floor. Her kitchen still looks nice and modern because the cabinets still shine and she used high quality material for everything so it would last. Although in general I do like dark countertops I think that’s the only thing she should have not done. A light grey would give the room a more airy look but the truth is the white high gloss cabinets is the real secret for a tiny kitchen.
