White's alright. But OFF-white is currently where it's at. And more specifically, shades of cream. And even MORE specifically, in your kitchen. Everyone went all white for their kitchens for years. That was stunning, of course, but using cream tones does something special. It adds a little warmth, dimension, and sophistication. Trust us, you'll want to take a look at these dreamy kitchens below if you're thinking of forgoing that same old white feeling.

Here are eight cream-colored kitchens that will have you reaching for more coffee.
1. Work with Textures
Get the look: Behr Marquee Collection in Creme de la Creme MQ3-33
2. Modularly Modern
3. Minimal Farmhouse
While the farmhouse look is on everyone's minds, this approach from deVOL is unique in its use of mixed wood surfaces and painted brick walls. We love the clean, open feel that feels super modern yet from another era entirely.
4. Stainless But Softer
This stainless kitchen look is cool and mod. Perfect for your late '60s motif. But doing something as simple as picking a cream-colored tone for your wall takes the edge off a bit and leaves us wanting to hang out a lot.
5. Go Cozy
Got a small kitchen? Embrace it. Panel the ceilings and walls in paint. Can't you just picture enjoying a spot of tea in this charmer? Painted woodwork in Farrow-Ball tones and vintage touches bring old world charm to a cozy space.
6. Traditional, But Not
For that 'house in the country' feel, the shiplap walls and floors here are painted an off-white. The cabinets are yet another shade of cream. We love how mixing shades of the same or similar shade from Benjamin Moore add dimension to a kitchen.

7. New Meets Old

8. Glow Up
Choose a lighter look for your overhead cabinetry to complement what's below. This look combines matching washed wood flooring and cabinets with off-white above to soothe us into starting a soup stock pronto.
