A light wood and white kitchen cabinet is just what your kitchen might need for a soft and inviting vibe. Light wooden flooring would be perfect with the cabinets’ white and light wood color. Ensure that the flooring is not the same shade as the cabinets. You don’t want them both blending. A patterned white marble countertop adds some fun to the solid color scheme.
Choose a dark contrasting color for the handles, you can go for a dark grey, but I would suggest you keep the handles a classic black. This is a look that is unlikely to go out of vogue.
