WARM WHITE: A COZIER SPIN ON WHITE
Warm colors help create inviting spaces. If comfortable and welcoming is the vibe you’re going for in your next kitchen, then check out Warm White for your cabinets. It has an ivory undertone that enhances the warmth of natural materials, like stained hardwoods and stone countertops that feature sandy, golden, and tan coloration. (If you don’t mind a little more color, then consider Canvas and Cottage. Compared to Warm White, these light, creamy neutrals each have a bit more tone and character, yet both offer a soft, off-white feel in the context of other colors.)

Think of it as an ideal midpoint between timeless white and today’s trending demand for grey tones. It’s a sophisticated look on its own and used in color schemes featuring cool blues or decadent blacks.
