White paint is timeless, but not all white paint is created equal. There's just something special about Sherwin Williams Alabaster White that looks great anywhere you paint it.

Repose Gray on cabinetry by Finding Lovely

We've shared Jackie's, from Finding Lovely, breathtaking kitchen before in our Sherwin Williams Repose Gray post.

When you choose a neutral paint color like repose gray SW7015, it is easy to add accents that take center stage.

The chunky beams and rustic floating shelves add great character to Jackie's kitchen.

Sherwin Williams Mindful Gray Cabinet

Another popular trendy color for kitchen cabinets is Mindful Gray SW 7016. This color is a little darker and richer than Repose gray so if you want more depth of grey tones then Mindful gray is your color.

Favorite Cabinet Paint Colors

While doing our research to find the most sold and popular cabinet paint colors we found a few personal favorites to share too.


Sensible Hue painted Cabinets by Unapologetic Home

Sensible Hue SW 6198 is a tricky color. Depending on the lighting, this color can look gray, green, or blue.

It looks amazing in Krystal's, from Unapologetic Home, kitchen.

She has a rustic look going on with her wood island, so this gray-green color looks great.


Sherwin Williams gray custom color painted cabinetry by Mrs. DIY

Allie, from Mrs. DIY, gave her kitchen a makeover by painting her kitchen cabinets with a custom gray color from Sherwin Williams.

The blend for the custom color is in the picture above, so if you love Allie's cabinets, you can take this into your local Sherwin Williams and they will mix it up for you.

You might remember, not to long ago, we shared Allie's fireplace in our fireplace makeover post.

We're pretty smitten with her home.


Sherwin Williams Peppercorn on a kitchen island by Sarah Williams Home

At Sarah Williams Home, she has a beautiful kitchen island that's painted a striking Peppercorn SW 7674 color.

It's great if you're looking for an accent color to add a darker color to the island if you have light-colored cabinets. Some trending Sherwin Williams accent colors are Smoky Blue and Pewter Green.


Kitchen cabinets painted Olive Grove by Ashley Beseda

Ashley Beseda has painted her cabinetry since we last featured her in our farmhouse backsplash post.

She went from white cabinets to this beautiful rustic Olive Grove color, SW 7734, and it's stunning.


Benjamin Moore Oxford White on cabinets by House of Douglas

Did you know that if you find a color by another paint brand Sherwin Williams can mix it for you too? Yes, if you love a particular color like we love Rebecca's white kitchen all you have to do is tell Sherwin William staff and they will mix it up.

Our friend Rebecca, from House of Douglas, has her cabinets in a popular white color by Benjamin Moore. She has used Oxford White CC-30.

It makes her kitchen look dreamy. And speaking of dreamy you have to check out her Instagram which is so much fun to follow.

Another great white paint by Benjamin Moore is their Chantilly Lace. We featured cabinets that we painted for a client called, Best White Paint For Interior Walls For That Fresh Farmhouse Look.

After you pick out your cabinet paint color you might be thinking about all the other details that will polish your kitchen design look. For example cabinet hardware and new faucet.

These two things can update a kitchen makeover. I share how to choose the best faucet for your kitchen in another post that will help you pick on that will fit your design and serve your kitchen needs.

Thank you for this great article. My new home has wood cabinets that were poorly stained. I am getting them painted white. Most people have stainless or black appliances, but mine are white and I can't afford to replace them for a while. What's the best Sherwin Williams white for white appliances?

This is a good question. I have white appliances and white cabinets. I actually prefer white appliances and I have new ones coming this year. When I painted my cabinets I choose a slightly gray-white color called First Star. My appliance and my countertop are white so I felt like I needed a little color to my white cabinets. If you like a warmer tone consider something like alabaster which is a white-white with a warm undertone. Last, colors read differently in each room. I would get some sample cans and test them out on the wall or on a piece of foam board in your room. Hold it up next to your appliances and countertop to see if you like it. I hope this help and good luck on your painting project.

Good Morning… I have painted my kitchen walls with Repose Grey (white trim)and now want my kitchen cabinets painted and kitchen island. My granite is Caledonia with a white subtile Backsplash with grey grout. Any thoughts on what color cabinets and darker color island?

Hi Kim! I've been thinking about your questions. What came to my mind first were white cabinets in Pure White or Alabaster. Then an island in Peppercorn or a very dark gray color. Another idea is white cabinets, and if your island is solid wood, strip the finish off and bleach the wood. This look is popular right now and might look great on your island. But this also depends on what is going on in the rest of the room. I hope this helps. And good luck!!

Hello, I just finished painting my kitchen with accessible beige walls and alabaster trim. I've decided the cabinets now have to be painted too. I wanted to do an off white (without yellow undertones). I have black countertops which color would you think is best for cabinets.

Have you considered using Alabaster for your cabinets? I recommend looking at Alabaster first.

Good morning. We gutted a 1950 abandoned farmhouse and in the process of finalizing inside . We have a cloud white interior paint all over the house with different sheens on walls and trims. We want to paint the upper cabinet white and black island . We have good natural light in the area . We hood will be white with some natural wood tone the same with our open shelvings in the bar/coffee area. Wood flooring . Subway tile backsplash and Calcutta classic on our countertop . Please help, I am not sure if I have to choose the same white paint for the cabinet or what would you suggest ? I would really appreciate all the input. More power to you . Thank you so much .

Your home sounds very pretty and I love that you are bringing back to life an abandoned farmhouse. If you want a seamless look I would go with the same color white on the cabinets as the walls. To make sure - is this Cloud White a Benjamin Moore color? If so it looks like it is a warm off white. If you want a tiny bit of contract with Cloud White then I would look at a white white like Pure White by Sherwin Williams for the cabinets. I hope this helps! Good luck with your renovation.

Hi! Thank you for the wonderful article. Have you or anyone you know ever used any of the off-white/creamier hues for painting their kitchen cabinets? We have a painter scheduled next month to paint/update our cabinets and he recommended alabaster or snowbound but we really feel like a creamier hue would match our flooring, granite countertops and backsplash tile much better. We don’t like stark white cabinets. But we don’t want it to look strange. We were looking at the cream and sugar color. He’s using the emerald line paint from Sherwin-Williams. Thanks a ton and hope your day is full of joy! :)

You're welcome! I have used a warmer tone white on kitchen cabinets. Here are a few colors to look at. Sherwin Williams Creamy and Navajo White. and Dover White. I hope this helps and good luck!
