White kitchen cabinets are among the most popular cabinet colors chosen in kitchen design and in kitchen renovations. Due to the classic, stylish and simple look, they are extremely versatile and can be used for traditional or contemporary kitchen designs.
To many homeowners white kitchens are a timeless classic and the crisp look and classic lines are an ideal choice if you wanted a contemporary kitchen to complement your modern home. White colored cabinets create a feeling of spaciousness, freshness and airiness and the accent is on functionality, practicality and efficiency.
White colored cabinets work with any other color in the kitchen color scheme and with any counter top – dark or light, back splash or flooring. The style opportunities are numerous – modern, contemporary, traditional, Mediterranean, or even country – these cabinets blend beautifully in the kitchen design and you can have a fancy yet comfortable appearance or a comfortable, cozy yet elegant and sophisticated appearance.
When choosing white for the color of your cabinets, you need to be aware of the daily practicalities like maintenance. White cabinets need care as dirt, dust and food particles are easily visible. For families with young children it may be challenging to maintain a spotless look. Scratches or dents are also more visible on a white surface. When not designed properly a white kitchen may seem too sterile and cold so you have to consider complimentary accessories and accents.
