Here are five versions of off-white plumbing fixture colors that can work well in an otherwise-white kitchen.
Q: We’re remodeling our kitchen with a very light color theme. We were planning to go with a pure-white kitchen sink, but I want to break it up a bit and go off-white for the color. I want to go to the gray side of the scale, not toward the almond side. What off-white color choices can I look into and compare for my final decision?
A: I’ve always said making an exact color match when repairing a white wall usually fails. That’s why so many people end up painting the entire wall.
In your case, though, this is good news because it gives you a lot of color choices. Here are five versions of off-white plumbing fixture colors that I have worked with and all go toward the gray side as they get slightly shaded. Remember, this is just my version. There are many different off-white color names and shades out there to choose from.
Dune. A close alternative to pure white.
