White Kitchen Cabinets that Accentuate Your Space

White cabinets make any kitchen look roomier. Darker colors tend to make spaces look smaller, so white cabinetry is definitely a must-have for smaller kitchens.

White cabinets work with any type of wood. You can choose to pair them with darker woods for a deep contrast that really adds a dramatic edge to your kitchen, or you can create a warm and inviting space when you pair white kitchen cabinets with a lighter wood.

White kitchen cabinets can make your kitchen seem clean and organized, even if it isn’t. A simple, neutral color pallet leaves the room looking less cluttered overall.

White cabinetry is extremely versatile and can be used with pops of color for added emphasis. When you combine too many colors, your kitchen may look crowded and messy, so we suggest white cabinets for anyone who plans to install an intricate mural or intense splashes of color.

Your white kitchen cabinetry can help express the style of your space. Choose elaborate carvings and hardware for a traditional kitchen, and stick with simple, streamlined hardware for a more modern look. Because white cabinets complement any design element, if your style changes in the coming years, you can change your accents instead of having to go through a full kitchen remodel.

White cabinets are the quintessential type for cottage kitchens. Using scalloped edges, off-white glazing, and soft hardware will add to the feeling of a cozy cottage kitchen. Another way to accomplish old-world charm is to choose traditional window dressings in light, warmer colors. You can transform your kitchen into a sunny escape with white cabinets and the right window dressings alone.

On the other end of the spectrum, when white cabinets are used with rich materials like natural stone and darker woods, they give off a look of elegance and glamour. White is simple and classic and lets the attention be drawn to features like grand chandeliers or marble countertops. Streamlined wood cabinets in an off-white or cream color add style and grace to any kitchen.

For a modern or contemporary style kitchen, choose white with a high gloss or in a reflective material like laminate or thermofoil. Paired with sleek countertops and bright glaze-tiled walls,  white cabinets can make your entire kitchen look as new as the day we designed it.

If you’re concerned about your kitchen looking like a blank space, don’t worry! Our award-winning designers have plenty of experience dressing up kitchens with white cabinetry. Adding features like glass cabinet fronts and pops of color in the counters or seating work incredibly well to give your kitchen depth and character.

You can even use white cabinetry to add flare and class to any room in your house. White cabinets look great as entertainment centers and wet bars and can be used as custom cabinetry in the dining room, den, or basement.
