    I had bisque appliances and white cabinets and they went well together. I couldn't afford at the time countertops so I used particular board,but I painted it red and then sealed it real well. Since I used cutting mats I had no problem.

    Hi Donna - they won't match but it won't necessarily look bad. I would make sure that the color is different enough that it doesn't look like you tried to match!

    Appliances will need replacement before cabinets and the most likely replacement appliances will NOT be bisque.

    We have cabinets that have an original neutral (chalK) white laminate finish. Everything goes with them. We've had white, beige and stainless appliances, chromed, and painted small appliances. However, our kitchen has been lit for +25 years by "warm-white" linear fluorescents (recently converted to 3400K iinear leds.)

    The cabinets color has a greater influence on the emotional "feel" of a room than appliances because they reflect and refract most of the light of the ceiling lights. The countertops and floor colors need to complement everything else. We chose a sand finish for the countertops and a honey oak for the floor plank vinyl and the cabinet trim. Without that added color the room looked took bare and cold.

    BTW, "white" paint isn't colorless or one color; it always has some kind of tint, and it looks different depending on the lighting of the kitchen. That nearly invisible tint added to "white" needs to be a compatible color or black (chalk-white).
