I think the cabinets, counter and flooring will be OK.

With dark cabinets and flooring, I think the wall paint should be very light. I'd try to match the walls to the white counter granite. photo.


Wall paint is often chosen last. You have to see how the wall paint looks with the cabinets, flooring, counters, & knobs. Here's a good article on how to choose wall paint. click. http://www.lindaholtinteriors.com/2011/07/testing-wall-color-101/

If you R disappointed and really like the wall paint color, use that color as an accent for towels, decorative items etc.

Try posing that question on Ikeafans.com They are all lovers of Ikea (like me) and are very happy to help out. They are not professional designers but their heart is in the right place. I get the feeling Ikea is a dirty word on this site for some reason. Too do it yourself maybe.

Houzz has many IKEA photos & we're asked many questions about IKEA here. I'm not sure what you mean, Marilyn Wilkie. I certainly don't feel that way. http://www.houzz.com/photos/kitchen/IKEA-
