Kitchen cabinet color selection

Kitchen has white appliances, streaks of cream in white tile and khaki walls. Need help selecting a cabinet color. Kitchen is dark so need a light up-lifting color.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions.-Frances Brown,

Hello Frances,

Thank you for your kitchen photo! I'd love to suggest a few colors to sample for your cabinets. Can you please tell me what type of color you had in mind? Are you looking for a neutral colo, perhaps blue or green? I see that you have lighthouse-themed accessories on your counter -- is there a style you'd like to create with the color?

Looking forward to your reply,

Diana Timmons

Yes, I do have hues of blue in kitchen. However, I do not wish to use a blue for cabinets. I prefer more of a neutral color. Would a B2 white or something with a hint of beige or creamwork? Thanks so much for your expertise.

Hello again,

Thank you for your prompt reply. Looking at your kitchen with white appliances and that nice neutral color on the wall, you could go with a creamy white that is between the white of the appliances, and your wall color. Just enough color to stand out from the white appliances and trim, but not too dark as to match the wall color, unless you decide to go with the all-white kitchen look. I am going to suggest a few colors to sample in your kitchen, as you'll need to see them next to the other colors in the room to get just the right look.
