White English Style Kitchen

This classic white kitchen features plenty of traditional design details such as inset cabinet doors, cup pulls, a bridge faucet and a white apron sink. Black quartz countertops contrast the white cabinets and white subway backsplash tile, which gets a contemporary twist with vertical rather than horizontal tile placement. The island reverses the look with its dark brown alder cabinets and white, slightly marbled quartz counters. A built-in butcher-block cutting board made from maple and walnut adds a checkerboard pattern and ties in with the maple hardwood flooring. The custom alder hood matches the dark stain of the island and caps off a pleasant cooking wall that features a gas cooktop with built-in shelves and two windows instead of upper cabinets. Copyright

What color paint is on the ceiling? - The paint on the ceiling looks grey; is it? I have the Cambria Torquay Quartz on my countertops and the white subway tile backsplash. I'm looking for a paint color for the walls. I was thinking an off white with grey undertones. Does anyone know the color used in this picture? Or better yet, does anyone know of a lighter/whiter color in this color family?

Hi ljroberts77, You can find all the available product information here: This is a rendered kitchen, not a built kitchen, so some of the products are custom-designed.
