What white?

frmrsdghtrMarch 22, 2011

The current trim color in my house is BM White Dove. I'm hoping to paint my old oak cabinets white. Should I match the trim and paint them White Dove as well? Or do they need to contrast? I hope to also install white tile backsplash. Does White Dove go well with that? Would love to hear from someone who has a white kitchen. What colors do you recommend? Thanks!

I would try Simply White.

What color are your appliances? I would love to paint my cabinets white, but getting that to look good with my 10 yr. old white appliances is tricky. I'm thinking of painting them a light gray instead. White dove has alot of yellow in it so make sure it doesn't make your tile or appliances look "off". :)

Thanks! Um, yes - I went to Lowe's and bought a white tile brought it home and held it up to my trim. Not so good! I'm not stuck on white tile or white dove, but I'm so indecisive. This is a DIY project on a budget. I have also considered gray cabinets or a light sage greenish color. I so wish I had some decorating abilities. I know what looks good in other people's kitchens but I can't apply it to my own. :( Our appliances are bisque - at least 10 years old, probably 20+ except for our stove and microwave which is black. But our fridge really needs to be replaced and it will probably end up being black and stainless. to blend with the stove.

DecoFan - I love these gray cabinets - and the bead board. Maybe I just changed my mind. :)
