Many homeowners choose to introduce a bold color by painting a feature wall, choosing colored appliances and accessories, or even by installing a colored countertop. With white kitchens you need not worry about the cabinetry clashing with a colored counter so much. The great thing is that if you get bored with the color that you have chosen, you can simply repaint your feature wall or replace your accessories since white is such a versatile base color.
