8 Off-White PANTONE Colors To Inspire Your Kitchen Design

Anybody can ‘wow’ you with articles about wild color palettes and outside-the-box design schemes. But you ALWAYS need an anchor color for your kitchen design palette. And that’s why we’re here.

You have your base color scheme and design palette for your kitchen design. But where do you go from there? How do you tie everything in with that one perfect neutral tone? Often, off-white colors are the answer. If white is a little too pedestrian, but you need to keep your neutral tone light, off-white is key to your kitchen’s color scheme.

But when you visit the paint aisle, it’s swatches as far as the eye can see. How in the world are you going to narrow down what seems like thousands of off-white options to that single, perfect color for your kitchen?

As always, we turn to the experts at PANTONE, the world’s foremost authority on color, for guidance. Using their one-of-a-kind Color Matching System, recent color trend guides and some of the most awe-inspiring kitchen designs from Peter Salerno Inc., we’ve tuned our focus on 8 fantastic off-white PANTONE colors to perfectly complete your kitchen’s color palette.

Which of these 8 off-white PANTONE shades is your favorite? Let us know in the comments section below!

8 Off-White PANTONE Colors To Inspire Your Kitchen Design

1. Brilliant White

Pantone 11-4001

Color Influence: Blue

The quiet blue undertone of Brilliant White makes it our top choice as an off-white PANTONE kitchen design color. Blue is the “it” kitchen design color of the moment, and Brilliant White allows you to set a neutral white base that still blends beautifully with your design choices.

2. Tofu

Pantone 11-4801

Color Influence: Bronze

Tofu is a muted off-white that plays well against wood tones and metallic colors. You don’t have to worry about Tofu dominating the color palette of your kitchen; it’s certainly not an “out front” design color. It does work quite nicely with a variety of stronger tones as a complementary shade.

3. Vanilla Custard

Pantone 12-0815

Color Influence: Orange

In contrast to Tofu, Vanilla Custard definitely brings a little more ‘punch’ to the table. The orange undertone isn’t exactly subtle, and you’ll need to choose a warm kitchen design palette to pair with it. However, in the right setting, Vanilla Custard is certainly a winning selection.

4. Sweet Corn

Pantone 11-0106

Color Influence: Yellow/Gold

This is a great choice for a traditional or country kitchen. Sweet Corn brings a charming golden undertone to your kitchen design’s color palette that works well against cozy, familiar options like Dutch blue, wood, and natural greens and browns.

5. White Smoke

Pantone 12-0704

Color Influence: Orange

White Smoke strays a bit further from “white” than most on the list, but its ability to counter-balance strong metallics and dark wood tones lands it a spot on our list. White Smoke isn’t for every kitchen, but it’s a strong enough off-white to hold its own against powerful colors.

6. White Alyssum

Pantone 11-1001

Color Influence: Beige

Even though White Alyssum falls faintly within the yellow color family, we can’t really “tie it in” to the color itself – it’s simply too delicate. White Alyssum feels like the ivory on a vintage piano – delicate, elegant and charming.

7. Bright White

Pantone 11-0601

Color Influence: Green

Bright White provides a really unique green hue which allows it to play in a totally different color palette than every other entry on this list. A kitchen design full of leafy greens, natural tones, earthy colors and plant life will benefit greatly by using Bright White as its off-white neutral.

8. Coconut Milk

Pantone 11-0608

Color Influence: Beige

Much like White Alyssum, Coconut Milk offers the slightest hint of yellow/beige, adding a ‘vintage’ feel to your color palette. Coconut Milk, perhaps unsurprisingly based on its name, also does quite well against hot tropical colors and pastels.
