Best Paint Colors For Kitchens With White Cabinets


White cabinets are the easiest cabinet color to work with when choosing a wall color because it’s such a blank canvas color, and brings a classic look to any kitchen.

Repose gray is my go-to paint color for every room in the house! If you’re looking for a whole house paint color, this is one of the most popular choices.

Sherwin Williams Repose Gray

Agreeable Gray by Sherwin Williams is another great choice to pair with a warm toned white kitchen cabinet. It is quite similar to Repose Gray however leans slightly more warm so may be more suited to a room that needs an injection of warmth such as a north-facing kitchen.

White Paint Colors That Work With White Cabinets

To make the most of white on white, choose the same shade for cabinets and walls, then break it up and provide contrast by choosing brass, black elements or gold elements, depending on your preference.

Blue and Green Paint Colors

Blue and green can look really nice when paired with white cabinets. With neutral white cabinets you are very lucky that you can really choose any wall color to compliment your kitchen. The world is really your oyster!

Adding Striking Contrast

This is probably not a fantastic choice for a smaller kitchen but if you have adequate space and plenty of natural and artificial lighting – this can be a really trendy and eye catching look for your space.
