White cabinets have long enjoyed a timeless reputation, but they have become more fashionable the last few years thanks to the farmhouse decor style most prominently popularized by HGTV’s show Fixer Upper. The look is a return to simplicity in design, a type of nostalgia that evokes a tranquil life. It can be eclectic and vintage or more modern and industrial depending on your tastes.
Shaker style cabinets with a painted white finish are a simple, clean look that goes with anything. White also does a great job of making a space feel bigger than it actually is. The white reflects light, making the room feel bigger. As the kitchen is the hub of the home, and modern floor plans have evolved to treat it as such, it makes sense that light, welcoming spaces have become the trend.
Being a neutral color, white cabinets lend themselves to a wide variety of countertops. White goes with almost everything. Following the farmhouse trend, Carrara Marble and similar colors have been particularly popular. Granite, wood, tile, and cement tops are other suitable choices. If you’re looking for something other than the ubiquitous white, but still want the clean, uniform look of a neutral color, grey cabinets are a more modern twist.
White cabinets lend themselves to changing styles down the road without changing cabinets, which makes white a good investment in your remodel.
