I'm not actually doing it myself, but trying to give some guidance to the cabinet finisher. What sort of tint would you add? A bit of white? Or gray?

I'd get them to do some samples. It's a bit about personal preference, and each cut of wood will be a little different. I like a bit of Burnt Umber as a tint. But definitely approve a sample before getting them to spray everything. If you're paying decent money for custom cabinets, it's a pretty routine thing to have done (We do that for all our clients). :-)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Splashes of Red
She adds an unexpected bit of red in the kitchen.
Here's an idea for a quick kitchen fix: Take off a few cabinet doors, then paint the inside with an eye-catching shade. Instant update!
Lily Gahagan added this to Change Up Your Tiles
See what I mean? With a twist these subway tiles look totally fresh.
Scheer & Co. added this to Classic Subway Tiles Go Uptown
Don't be afraid to experiment with the orientation of your tile. The vertical application of the backsplash is fresh and unexpected.
Jamie Gold, CKD, CAPS added this to 2012 Color Trends: Using Red in Your Kitchen and Bath
You've heard (and perhaps tired) of accent walls, right? How about accent interiors instead? The deep red back of an open maple or birch cabinet can really warm up their cool blonde tones. It also serves as a surprising color punch in an otherwise neutral space.
