Ivory is an off-white colour that derives from the material from which teeth and tusks of certain animals is made- it also has a very slight tint of yellow. Ivory is relatively neutral, and its soft shade can be paired with nearly any colour. However certain other tones bring out Ivory’s fruitfulness and warmth better than most. At Kitchen Warehouse we have many years of experience in providing a range of ivory kitchen units and cabinets to homes all over the country from our Ripon base. We are experts when it comes to the design and supply of ivory kitchens.


Bright coloured walls are perfect to give a fun, contemporary touch to your Ivory cabinets. The neutral units coupled with a modern design twist (such as an island) will allow the incorporation of bold colours to brighten up your kitchen. Leaning your preferences toward the cooler end of the spectrum, brighter colours perfectly complement the warmer tones of ivory. Be careful not to overpower your kitchen units with bright walls, floor and ceiling, but using bold colour for your walls could certainly bring out its strengths.

Painting your walls with neutral colours is also a great way to coordinate your space with ivory kitchen cabinets. As neutrals are easy on the eye, they won’t be conflicting with your cabinets, much like the modern bright colours in their contrasting style. Neutral shades that compliment ivory nicely are beiges and browns.

Fittingly it is beige and browns that we recommend you choose for your ivory unit kitchen worktops. Similar to the colour of your walls, this will not contrast and complement your cabinets well. The common undertones form both colours will provide a warm homely feeling to your kitchen and will likely become the family hub of your household.


Before we leave you pondering between the decision of using modern bright colours alongside your kitchen cabinets or to stick with the traditional wooden colours – we would like to throw one more option into the mix.

An increasingly popular choice to complement ivory kitchen units is the incorporation of grey. Grey looks unbelievable with ivory and provides a timeless and trendy sensation to your kitchen. Maybe the strongest advice we can give when it comes to pairing your walls, flooring and worktops to your ivory kitchens is that your personal preference will be the best for you. The neutral origin of ivory allows for such scope for a design you really can accompany with a variety of shades and tones.

We have a range of ivory painted solid wood designs that can match and complement a variety of kitchen styles. Each unit can be delivered to you flat packed along with all the necessary kitchen components in order for your kitchen to be correctly installed in your home.
