Kitchen - Too White?

The colour is Wattyl Romaine but if you're after a slightly stronger colour, there's Wattyl Alphalpha (which we originally selected).

Under floor heating??

We also have undertile heating for the bathrooms and tiled living area/kitchen. Unfortunately for me, I'm not allowed to turn on the bathroom heating on a normal basis
