Wood Colour

Should we go with white or cream?

March 10, 2011

Reta from Ipoh, Perak asks...
We currently have inexpensive white cabinets in our kitchen which we would like to replace. Our problem is most of our house has oak moldings, casings and very large cabinets on either side of our fireplace in the family room which is all open to the kitchen. We don’t really like oak but can’t afford to replace or paint out all the existing oak. Is there a wood which would blend with it or should we go with white or cream cabinets?

NECD responds...
If your house is over-run with oak and you don’t really like it, don’t add more! If you need to work with the oak, go for painted cabinets in white or cream, or even a light watery blue/green. The look is very current, it will keep your kitchen feeling bright, and won’t compete with the oak.
