    what color are the upper cabinets and large cabinet on right? In picture it looks off white, can you be more specific?

    Every kitchen manufacturer has their versions of 'off white' paint colours, unless the company offers custom paint colours.

    Normally, as is true with paint chips, you would choose a white that either has warm tones (more yellows) or cold tones (more blues). You may also select whites that have a warm tone with tinge of red. Although you don't see this in kitchen cabinet colours as much as in paint chips/on walls.

    If you are having your cabinets custom painted, then perhaps stand in front of a paint chip display in a paint store and see which colour spectrum is influencing the whites you like!!!

    So the yellow spectrum whites will be warm, and blue spectrum whites will be cool.

    I prefer a slightly warm white as they look fresh and also soft as my design philosophy is to 'go a bit sunny' - but some clients really want a cooler experience-

    I have had cabinets painted in Benjamin Moore Cloud White - CC-40 for a project that turned out beautifully but I do believe the client who's kitchen is in this photo selected a white that is on the cool side.

    Hope this helps in your cabinet colour selection. Selecting a white is simple if the cabinetry company only offers a selection of 2-3. If they offer custom painted cabinets, the colour selection may take longer- and normally the designer offers advise to suit your needs.

    Otherwise, here are the most popular whites from Benjamin Moore (but not necessarily for cabinets only!):
