Cabinets painted in exuberant hues may be all the rage right now, but the popularity of white kitchen cabinets continues. Whether it’s Shaker-style white cabinetry paired with classic white subway tiles or white lacquered handleless cabinetry paired with sleek white quartz countertops, white cabinets have won over legions of homeowners and designers. .
White cabinetry has played a particularly prominent role in the signature “pallet cleaner” kitchen of the past decade. Defined by pigment-free countertops, backsplashes, and cabinetry, white-on-white kitchens are loved by homeowners who dream of white sofas and white rugs, but not necessarily the crisp families needed to make them practical. They are also heralded by designers seeking to create tranquil kitchens that counteract the hectic and stimuli-rich lifestyles of their customers. Whatever your personal style inclinations, white-on-white kitchens – and by association, white cabinetry – are a sure-fire way to achieve sophistication in a space.
Increasingly, however, designers and DIY enthusiasts are pulling white cabinets out of their colorless comfort zone. Rather than pairing them with achromatic finishes, they accentuate white cabinetry with dark butcher block counters, tropical-colored appliances, and armored kitchen islands in cabinet doors painted in high contrast hues. While it’s true that white cabinets attract less attention than colored cabinets, opting for white cabinets doesn’t necessarily mean a stark or boring kitchen, by far. To show you exactly how white kitchen cabinets can invigorate a room, we’ve rounded up 27 stunning kitchens that make white cabinetry look perfect.
