I'm pretty entertained by those defending the knotty pine. I've always considered it a " Why do you want your hose to have chicken pox ?" kind of thing. The new kitchen is just beautiful. And a white kitchen is vision friendly. As people get older those dark cabinets and dark granite surfaces cause eyestrain in the evening. I am interested to read the comments about induction cooktops. I've actually never been in a house with one. And I do understand that you need all new pots. I'm not ready to parcel out the Le Crueset yet ! But the gas stove is still a bear to clean. And the repairman told me ( after the 3rd failure of the Jenn Air which had to be junked ) that the self cleaning feature is often way too hot and has killed a number of appliances.

While I agree with you regarding dark surfaces and aging eyes, the knotty pine can be painted so it’s no longer dark. No different than bead board treatment on ceiling unless that was a sheet of bead board rather than individual boards. But having two different types of bead board treatments wouldn’t work.m

Depends on your pots. If a refrigerator magnet sticks to your existing pots there is no need to buy new ones.
