    It would depend on what cabinets, tiles and worktops you have, surely? It might look good as part of one colour scheme, but awful as part of another.

    There's some folk here discussing it, if it helps:

    OP, you really need to go to a store and compare there, or get some tester pots and try them at home. Your colour preference and that of a bunch of random weirdos is unlikely to concur!

    Earlier threads by OP:
    Dulux jasmine white
    dulux colours
    new kitchen colours
    Colour for a new kitchen

    There are several others on the kitchen installation, and white-colour choices there, as well.

    OP - if you stick to one thread, posters will know what has been suggested, and be able to actually help! Changing thread each time just confuses the responses.

    My suggestion... suggested in at least one of your other threads, is a repeat of the above advice.

    Go to a DIY shed, or a specialist paint supplier. Get some tester paints, and try them at home. Only you can really choose, and there are so many variables, it's difficult to advise. As Penitent points out, the substrate will alter the effect, as will the colour of lighting you are using (tungsten, halogen, LED - but what colour...?), the floor colour, the furniture, worktops... the list is endless.

    For a second opinion, get a friend round to your place, and see what they think.

    All I would add is that all the whites you have meandered through are quite pale, and a stronger non-white colour would always be my choice for a kitchen. They also hide the dirt better!

    I found cotton on the yellow side, if you want an off white then I would recommend white chiffon, not yellow, which I hate in a white paint.

    Ah, yeah, combining all those little threads into one would have made things easier. With white/grey units and worktop, I would have thought a pure white or a greyish off-white would work better than a yellow off-white.

    Personally, I think blue or green goes well with white and grey.

    Google images is great if you're struggling to picture things, by the way. So search for, say, "white kitchen grey wall" and have a look through the images to see if anything catches your fancy.
