    Decorative hardware?

    I personally would add decorative handles just to make the doors pop, love the new look🥂

    What about some lighter colored knobs/door handles? Even if the doors have a finger groove to open them, handles could be added just for the visual emphasis, and added even in the center of the door. Try putting a piece of tape or a small sticky note where a handle might go, and look at it during the day as you go about the room. Move it around/change size or shape until it pleases you. This is a 'fun' kind of project since you can take your time with it.

    Live with your new design for one month. If you still think it needs something you'll probably know what it is. Personally, I think it looks great as is.

    I agree with hardware. Otherwise I love the look. It's great!

    maybe a highlight color, either silver/white or a matte black, in the routed trim. Can be combined with coordinated color hardware, too. Looks great.

    I think they match with the wall and it's good color
    you can use some decorative stuff in a third color in harmony with white and blue , eg gold!🌟

    Let it be for a bit to see if you get used to it. If you still feel it needs something, how about stenciling a subtle design on the doors or even using an image transfer technique to add an accent? There are a lot of options but I do think it looks nice and clean.

    If this were my room I would have also painted around the doors. I think what is bothering you is all the white lines making the piece look patchy. If it was all one colour it would more pleasing, not so " in your face" .

    Leave it alone --- it is perfect as it is.

    , I have been studying interiors and art for many years....what you leave out is often more important visually as what you add....go with your gut..it's perfect. Leave it be! :)

    I would paint a thin pinstripe of silver in the cupboard door panel indent.

    Good luck, with whatever idea you choose. 🙂

    Nothing wrong with what have you completed so far......you just need some accent pieces to give it some "pop". Just sit back and study it, and it will come to you about some other pieces you can add. Only the best to you.
