Designing a beautiful kitchen is an art which needs creativity and unique ideas. The most important aspect of a kitchen is the cabinet, as it not only includes storage, but it also helps in enhancing the entire look of the room. Depending on the color of the cabinet, the entire room is designed and painted. A number of people like to have neutral cabinet colors, so they can paint the walls whenever and however they want. When you have white cabinets, you can color your kitchen in absolutely any paint color and make it look traditional as well as modern. To give you a slight idea, as to how you can complement kitchen colors with white cabinets, we have put together some unique patterns.
Paint Colors for Walls

White cabinets are very Victorian in origin and they leave an extremely traditional effect on your kitchen. But they are a great combination to mix and match various colors so that you won't have to bother with remodeling your home every time you feel like changing the interiors.
  • The first thing you can choose to complement with these kitchen cabinets are the wall colors. Depending on the shade of white (cream, beige, ivory, glossy, etc.), you can choose light or dark shades. After cabinets, walls have the maximum visual effect in the room, and thus, you can decorate them in beautiful color schemes.
  • You can choose shades such as lemon, purple, bright yellow, blue, mauve, violet, orange, red, pink, olive green, blue, gray, and golden, for the walls. To give a slight versatility, you can use monochromatic shades.
Kitchen Countertop and Backsplash Colors

Countertops are used in at least three to four places around the kitchen, therefore should be color coordinated as well.
  • Granite countertops are the most popularly used as they look fresh, classy, and very elegant with any type of cabinets. Depending on the wall colors that you have chosen for your kitchen, you can pick matching countertops as well.
  • However, countertops are directly in contact with the cabinets and thus, make sure you pick the right combination. Darker colors like olive green, black, dark brown, gray, red, etc., are a few colors which would match perfectly with white cabinets.
  • Along with the countertops, you can also color coordinate the backsplash colors. For these however, choosing bold colors like red, blue, orange, yellow, green, black, etc., can be great combinations. Make sure the backsplash colors also match the wall colors in the kitchen.
Kitchen Appliances and Accessories

After the walls and the countertops, color coordinating other things in the kitchen is very essential. Even though most of the visual appeal of the kitchen is created by the interior walls, cabinets and the countertops, using furniture and accents that complement these could be very helpful.
  • Therefore, let's start with picking out the seating arrangements around the kitchen, which include chairs, dining tables, bar stools, bar chairs, etc. You can choose either wooden or wrought iron chairs with colored seats, so they match the desired color scheme.
  • In case of kitchen appliances, you will surely find products such as ovens, coffee machines, blenders, and refrigerators in vibrant colors. You can either pick the exact colors that go with your color scheme of neutral shades like black, gray, steel, etc.
  • In case of kitchen accessories, these are the simplest to color coordinate, because you don't have limitations to use any specific accessories. Thus, you can make choosing kitchen colors easy with accessories like vases, plates, dinner sets, casseroles, plants, flowers, picture frames, paintings, candles, etc.
The key is to set the color palette for your kitchen. You can play around with different hues and shades of the same color, or you can go for absolute contrasts. If by chance you think that the wall color you have chosen is too gaudy, use accessories in neutral colors to balance it out well.
