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.

If your cabinets are a cool white, you can opt for a cooler wall color or something slightly warmer to offset some of the coldness in the cabinets

Determine The Undertone of Your White Cabinets

If your kitchen is north facing, a color such as a cool white will make your walls look a bit gray and dull. In this case, you’ll want to pick a color with some warmth to offset the dullness that comes with north-facing light.

Consider the Direction the Windows Face and the Amount of Natural Light

Warm Shades of Gray and Greige to Consider

The warm tones inherent in greige paint colors serve as the perfect color to add life to a white kitchen. There are many different shades of to choose from, but these are some of the most popular to narrow down the perfect choice for your kitchen.

Benjamin Moore Classic Gray

It’s considerably warmer than my favorite Repose Gray, but it’s another really really great choice that looks amazing against white kitchen cabinets.

Benjamin Moore Worldly Gray

I would describe BM Worldly Gray as being a little bit darker than SW Agreeable Gray. It leans a little more into its green undertones, and in a well lit space, the slight purple undertone may become more apparent.

Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray

It is a really popular choice for a paint color that leans more beige than the rest. It just have just enough gray to stop it being overly warm, but it’s definitely warmer than the other colors we have discussed.
