If you are considering painting your kitchen cabinets, think outside of the box. The lower and upper cabinets do not need to match. In fact, sometimes painting the lower cabinets in a darker tone and the upper cabinets in a white/off white can visually add height to your room. This may even be a solution if your cabinets are already painted white and you are looking for a change.
Another way to change things up is to have an island painted in a darker tone such as expresso or a bold colour like yellow (shown below).
For a dark expresso brown like the island above, we suggest 2114-10 Bittersweet Chocolate by Benjamin Moore.
This fun yellow painted island above is un-expected and easy to repaint over time. We suggest 2024-40 Yellow Finch by Benjamin Moore.
