I think it depends on the colour of your floor and furnishings, and what kind of natural light you have. Can you post a pic or give a description?

Hi all,
We are shortly going to be repainting the exterior of our house. The details:

What white paint colour on kitchen cabinets

I think the most important aspect is that the white you choose is totally neutral or leans cool, rather than having any antiquey warmth whatsoever.
Personally I would probably go with…

URGENT splashback colour dilemma, help!!!

crazyk - I'm sure you will be fine - especially since you have white shimmer benchtops, so there's really not any "warm" or "cool" reflecting on your splashback. We wanted…

Help please with vanity choice

I can't comment on endurance or durability over time, but we've just had a 900mm 2-drawer ADP wall-hung vanity installed in our bathroom and it looks and feels terrific.

I should add - Grey Pebble looks "properly grey" against the Vivid White. Or at least, when I put an A4 (paper) swatch up against the splashback wall, it looks…

Hi all,
Would appreciate some help if anyone is good with colours!
Our kitchen benchtop choice yesterday abruptly changed from CS Urban to CS Oyster, due to non-availability of Urban.
