Design Trend: White Kitchen Cabinets

Happy Friday! Today, House Beautiful did a feature on white kitchen cabinets to which I was completely drawn. White kitchens always seem so fresh, clean and crisp to me and would be my first choice should I have the opportunity to choose for myself. Like a little black dress, white cabinets are appropriate almost anywhere, whether your kitchen is sleek and modern or warm and traditional. However, anyone who has ever tried to choose a shade of white, knows that not all white is the same! There are a plethora of choices!

For a contemporary look, use a minimalist profile on the cabinets and use a similar style sleek hardware to complete the look.

 

 

A super modern look will use high gloss cabinetry as the focal point of the kitchen.

 

 

For a more traditional look, use an off-white glazed or distressed technique to create a more rustic appearance.

 

 

 


The glazing and relief to the cabinets will give them a worn patina look that adds a richness to your design.

 

 

 

You can also break up an all white kitchen by using darker floors, countertops and back splash or even some bright color if you dare!

 

 

 

 

Thanks for reading!

  1. ‘A super modern look will use high gloss cabinetry as the focal point of the kitchen.’ Agreed, but don’t forget matt kitchens too!…A super modern and fresh look is also achievable in a matt white finish: http://bit.ly/168TKcG It’s a different look that’s created but equally stunning in appearance!
