White Kitchen Cabinets
White cabinets brighten your kitchen and bring clean quality to any style. White isn’t just a beautiful color choice, it’s also incredibly functional. Bright white spaces make rooms seem larger, especially in small kitchens, bathrooms, or laundry rooms. White also reflects more light than other colors, so kitchens with white cabinetry feel light and never dim.
Looking to add white cabinets to your farmhouse kitchen? Classic white with a Shaker door frame is an ideal choice for a bright, pure, farmhouse feel. Cabinets with decorative details in off-white colors, such as antique white or dove, add an elegant refinement to your kitchen for traditional or cottage style kitchens.

White Kitchen Cabinet Benefits
There are numerous advantages to white kitchen cabinets, one of the most popular color choices for kitchen remodels. White cabinets make kitchens feel larger, cleaner, lighter, and provide a blank creative slate for decorating.
Make Small Kitchens Feel Bigger
If your kitchen is tiny, choose white kitchen cabinets to make it feel bigger. White reflects more light which makes small rooms feel larger. Darker colors absorb light so avoid overwhelmingly dark colors in tiny rooms. By adding light, white kitchen cupboards make your room feel larger, airier, and brighter.
In addition to adding light, white cabinets are ideal for the minimalist aesthetic, which also makes small rooms feel bigger by cutting down on extra objects which can feel messy. White cabinets also eliminate the visual clutter of different colors, wood grains, or busy textures. A smooth, bright surface makes a room feel larger than a textured, varied surface. Smooth surfaces create depth and open spaces.
Combining darker accents with white is another good idea to open up your cooking space. The contrast between the color and your white cabinets provides the impression of depth. Choosing hardware, flooring, and décor as part of a larger color palette is a fun way to add personality and harmony to your home. Even an all-white kitchen might still feel too small, so use your space wisely. Smart cabinet organization can make small kitchens feel larger as well.
Cabinets Feel Clean
Since the color white feels spotless, fresh, and sterile it’s ideal for inherently messy spaces like kitchens or bathrooms. Daily cooking and other activities can make your kitchen feel cluttered and messy. White cabinets help mitigate the feeling of uncleanliness. Traditionally the psychology of the color white indicates purity and spotlessness, specifically in hospitals or other medical fields. White is especially popular in minimalist designs such as Scandinavian or modern room plans, which emphasize clean layouts.
Many websites and graphics use white space to highlight and draw attention to text or images, making them easier to read. White kitchen cupboards do the same in your kitchen, acting as a blank space, highlighting more interesting focal points. White allows the eye to glide over the surface of your cabinets and focus on beautiful dishes or decorative appliances instead.
Along with white cabinets, choose light colors for countertops, floors, and backsplash to continue the feeling of cleanliness. A white subway tile is large, easy to clean, and continues the fresh appeal of your new, clean white cabinets.
Neutral Color Palette
White is the easiest color to match with other colors and textures. Starting with such a neutral color gives you greater flexibility in the style, design, and décor in your kitchen. The versatile nature of white looks great in any size kitchen, and on both modern slab-style or traditional framed and beveled cabinetry.
White outlasts popular trends, so you save money by not replacing your cabinets with changing fashions. To stylize your cabinets with today’s current trends: create a farmhouse kitchen with a farmhouse sink and subway tile backsplash, or a modern kitchen with black hardware pulls and a waterfall countertop. White cabinets are also universally popular, which makes selling your home easier. Potential buyers love neutral colors because they can envision their own style and preferences on a clean slate.
Easy to pair with any color palette, white cabinets play well with almost any color of flooring, lighting, backsplash, countertops, hardware, wall colors, and décor. Choose contrasting colors such as black or navy to add bold drama and interest, whereas off-whites, creams, or tans create a calm, simple kitchen.
Light-filled kitchens are more comfortable to cook in because it’s easier to see your working areas. White cabinets don’t absorb colors and reflect more light, making white cabinets appear brighter than other popular cabinetry colors. Natural wood, blue, or grey kitchen cabinets absorb light, reflecting their colors respectively, making dim kitchens seem darker. Since cabinets take up so much surface space in your kitchen, choosing white reflects more light than a white floor, white countertop, or in some cases even white wall paint.
In addition to more light fixtures, try installing white cabinets to reflect more light. Bright kitchens that take advantage of natural lighting also save money on energy costs. If you prefer to add color to your space but still to increase the room’s brightness, try white upper cabinets and a color on your base cabinets. Glass-front cabinets are another option to add in more light, as they look especially stunning with inside-cabinet lighting.
