How to pick a cool white paint for cabinets...

Does anyone have advice on how to choose a cool white paint for cabinets that won't look too stark or cheap?
We're building a house, and the wall color is BM Metallic Silver 2132-60. The ceiling color is a 1/16th formula of the wall color...basically white. The floors are a natural finished hickory. Trim/Doors will be white L-8. The Island will be a very dark stained maple with Carrara marble. The perimeter cabinets, I want to paint white...and it will have Caesarstone Raven quartz countertops. The Raven is a dark Charcoal color...
The L8 would be a safe choice for the cabinets too, but I am worried that it will look too stark and make them look cheap? The painted cabinets are maple with shaker door fronts.
Thank you for your comments!

Sherwin Williams - Alabaster would be my suggestion.

You don't want a cool white at all - you want a warmer tone to balance the gray and black. Even an off-white. Back to whites - BM shows white opulence with metallic silver and days end - so that is a proven option http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/paint-color/whiteopulence#ce_s=8
you can also test bm gardenia and bm sand dollar . .
