Cream kitchens are sometimes overlooked as being the colour scheme for a country or farmhouse style kitchen, but we think that even the most modern and contemporary kitchens can look wonderful with cream cupboards and units. This kitchen pantry from Wayfair is a great example of this. The modern kitchen cabinets with a glossy cream finish create a contemporary cooking space without looking like a cottage kitchen. 

8. Country cream kitchen

Furthermore, the cream cupboards and units can be modernised and styled in so many ways to make your kitchen unique to you. We love the styling of inky blue walls against this kitchen design to bring in a modern look that freshens up the cream so that it isn’t lost against dull walls.
