Wanted sink wall base cabs to be a different finish, but....

Hello here is my kitchen-to-be. IRL the flooring is old fir, cabs whitish. Sink wall countertop = stainless, remainder countertop = soapstone. Not pictured is a wood plate rack above the DW. Hood is stainless and range color is undecided.

I would like the sink wall cabs to be stained rather than painted, but the corner base makes this less straightforward. Should I just make everything whitish instead?

Previously I had planned to make the base cabs on the range wall different (stained), but then I realized that the sink wall was a better candidate because it has no uppers and has the "accent" countertop.

Would it be possible to just have the sink base in a stain instead of the whole run? Are you planning on getting anew DW? If so, you could get one that is panel ready and have the panel match the cabs that flank the sink? Maybe someone else on here will have a great idea, though! Try to search for pics of sink bases in a different finish... they are out there and it looks nice.

T've seen sink cabs done in a different stain/color and it can look really great. Maybe these pictures can give you some ideas.

I love this one but think it would have looked so much better if they had paneled the DW.
