Popularity of the White Kitchens

A white kitchen is clean, cheerful and timeless space that provides a feeling of warmth and comfort. White kitchens are lighter, simpler, and can be traditional and modern at the same time.  It is no wonder that white continues to be the most popular among painted cabinetry recently specified by 59% of NKBA member kitchen designers, while other colors were specified by only 38% of designers according to the 2012 Kitchen & Bath Style Report.

Another design advantage of white cabinetry is the ability to blend or pop with the addition of other colors. It’s easy to change the whole look of a kitchen by adding new color combinations and white cabinets complement them all.  A white kitchen has unlimited design possibilities, serving as a ready canvas for affordable tweaks.
