Beyond Basic: Why White Kitchens Are Always In Style

White kitchens are classic. From country to modern, white cabinets are a perennial favorite. White kitchens bring a light and bright feel to the kitchen and allow for other accents to shine, like backsplash and paint colors.

There are many good reasons why white kitchens are so enduringly popular: white is calm, neat, minimal, and light-enhancing – all must-have qualities in a space that’s increasingly busy (and sometimes somewhat chaotic).

White is also a good base, so when you decide you want to change the look of your kitchen up, your white cabinets will support whatever color scheme or style you want to take on.

  • Want a farmhouse look? Add in black and wood-grain accents with rustic decor items, like lanterns.
  • Want to go sleek and modern? Switch out cabinet pulls to brushed gold or matte black with clean lines, and add in some standout art or rugs.
  • Want to go boho chic? White looks great with green! Add in lots of plants, throw down a vintage-looking Persian rug, and invest in some cute pottery.

The options are truly endless!

Popular options for white kitchens are:

  • Aristokraft white painted cabinets.
  • Backsplash options are really endless–subway tile is always popular, either in white with contrasting grout or a glass tile in a complimentary color.
  • Countertops can be white quartz or laminate with a marble look to continue that all-white look. Or, go for a bolder contrasting look with dark granite, quartz, or even butcher block.
  • Paint colors should be light, but not necessarily white in a white kitchen. You can try an off-white with some pink or brown tones, or go for a mint green, bronze, or a neutral like the ever-popular Agreeable Gray.

All of these reasons support getting a white kitchen, but the best reason might be because it will remain in style today and if and when you ever sell your home. White kitchens are the most likely to please potential buyers should you decide it’s time to move on, making a white kitchen a smart investment.
