What colour white paint for kitchen?

Good morning,

We are in the process of decorating our house and need to pick the paint for our kitchen.

Do you have any recommendations of shades of white to use? Our units are ivory, worktop is wood and woodwork and doors are white.

We have used Dulux almond white throughout the rest of the house but think this will clash with the Ivory units in the kitchen so looking for possibly an off white type of shade. We have 3 windows but not a huge amount of light comes in.
Thank you

Visit b and q and goto paint section

Look at samples , pick ones that you think would match and either buy the tester pots and paint them on something to see if they go with your units or take the tester cards home and do the same

When decided buy enough paint to paint your kitchen

Job done

P.s. no one can really recommend a certain shade of white when it's all down to personal preference
i have been musing on changing our brilliant white bedroom paint colour to a slightly grey shade..
to look cleaner in my opinion thant a brilliant white and set off the ceiling and coving which i stick with brilliant white for...you can imaging my room is a bit boxy in perspective

i use dulux trade vinyl matt..from the dulux trade centre

the choice as they say is yours...

good luck...
