A Touch of Darkness
In the exact opposite vein, sometimes adding just a few notes of a darker shade helps to ground a kitchen color scheme and add gravitas to the room. Here, a deep gray upper cabinet unit anchors the space and draws in the color from the adjacent accent wall. Credit: Behr
Boost Color With Texture
Bold color and rich texture create a one-two visual punch that's hard to resist. Here, a vivid turquoise island is dressed in beaded board that calls attention to its color and gives the kitchen another layer of depth. Credit: Plain and Fancy
Blend Natural Woods With Painted Surfaces
Torn between the beauty of wood grain and the power of paint? Use both. As in this kitchen, try staining or varnishing your wall cabinets and choosing a complementary paint color to make the island stand out. Or, if your cabinets have furniture-style details, try painting just one section to create the look of a freestanding piece of furniture. Credit: KraftMaid
A New Take on Neutrals
This is my favorite!! There's a reason neutral hues are perennial favorites: Not only do they work with all design styles, they're the ultimate in versatility. But think beyond classic white and ivory for kitchen cabinets. Stronger neutrals such as this steely gray shade offer the advantages of their color cousins, they yet have a more pronounced presence.

Subtle Two-Tone Effects
When combining different hues in a kitchen, you don't always have to go for high drama. In this kitchen, the upper shelves wear an ever-so-slightly paler version of the citron yellow hue that cloaks the base cabinets. The lighter color on top helps to open up the space and prevent the shelves from feeling too weighty, and the overall look is cohesive and gentle. Credit: Dennis Vert
