First, consider pairing a yellow cabinet tone with deep, rich earth-toned accents, like black, deep brown or dark bronze hardware. Countertops will also be especially appealing in darker tones, to add some weight to the breezy yellow cabinets.

Next up, remember that there's yellow, and then there are the literally hundreds of related shades you can choose from. Many yellow tones cross over the edge into green or even brownish hues, so be sure to explore as much of the range as possible before settling on the color that's right for your kitchen.

Finally, don't be afraid to be bold. Particularly in modern kitchens, brilliantly bright or even fluorescent yellows are becoming more common. They can add a bold stroke of eye-opening color to a room that'll surely be witnessing wake-ups for years to come.
