Dark with Detail Add warmth to dark wood cabinets by using warm wall colors and details. Pale golden walls and oak flooring add that warmth while a touch of black (on the island) is a nice balance to the wood.
Color-Coordinated Cabinetry- Selecting a different hue for upper and lower cabinets is a great way to help a small kitchen break out of its boxy mold. A sunny yellow keeps the wall cabinets in this kitchen feeling light and airy, while blue base cabinets anchor the room. A yellow island helps balance the color-blocking scheme. Painted crown molding takes the color scheme right up to the ceiling.
