I had a colour selection few weeks back but now not sure of my colours
wall: grey pebble half
ceaserstone: wild rice
floor: manhattan coffee oak
overhead cabinets: marni lini sheen
splashback: mocha magic
tiles:milano nero gloss
cabinets:cavia lini sheen
I now feel wild rice benchtop in the kitchen may be too dark or will it look good with all the colours together? I am thinking of changing to latte. if it is latte can I have same cabinet colours to go with it? may I have your suggestion please

Hi it seems like you have lots of brown in cabinets etc. and so think will be too much and too dark. Maybe others can provide their ideas. You mightv like to look at the ceasrstone website as they have a photo gallery and online visaliser. Your going with grey walls so also need to consider this. Good luck!!

I like the colour of your bench top and your cupboards, the only one that concerns me is the splashback, and I'm not even certain what colour to suggest that would work.

I googled the colours and cut and pasted them together so people can see:
The mocha magic seems to blend with the wild rice, which gives a very different look to the Latte. I don't like the Latte in there to be honest - but wild rice is one of my favourites so I may be biased.
You could step right down in darkness and go for something like Buttermilk or Linen for the benchtop, or if you want to keep the character of Wild Rice, maybe the new Sh---ke? (it's below - the board doesn't like that word!) Here's the screencaps of Caesarstaone's pdf brochure:
I would be considering a different splashback though - the mocha magic is very definitely brown, and the grey pebble walls are grey and they seems to fight a bit with each other to my mind.

Of the options you've shown, I'd pick Heifer.

Hi jang25, yes the splash is way too dark.
To complement everything in the kitchen and to try and keep the kitchen light, I'd look at a white splash back - or off white.

You want something cool enough not to clash with the walls but not so stark it fights with the Malt and the Wild Rice. Maybe dulux "Natural White"? It has always seemed a nice soft-white to me. I would like to play up the grey more but I think that would be hard with the Malt in there.

You have paid for a new kitchen, not a touched up one. Ask them to re do the damaged panels and correct their poor workmanship. This should not be too hard for them.

Sorry, answered based on the title, and missed the "Birch". "Birch White" looks like it might best be complemented by standard heritage colours, manor red and forest…
