I have been asked this question a few times. Whenever someone has read “A Light Colour will Never come to Life in a Dark Room.”
Can you have white cabinets in a dark kitchen? Yes. Here’s where I totally break that rule. Your cabinets are like furniture and I would put white furniture anywhere regardless of how dark or light the room was.
It’s also the reason why I would not paint the walls the same colour as the cabinets.
Also the lights in a kitchen are usually brighter. You might have puck lighting underneath the cabinets to illuminate the countertops and track lighting or recessed lighting overhead. Just make sure you add some colour to the walls in the kitchen and soft window coverings wherever possible since there is so little softness in a kitchen unlike a living room or bedroom.
Have you figured out that there are few exceptions for ever having a kitchen other than white?
That’s right. White reigns for a timeless kitchen. Period.
