This isn’t the first time I have written about white kitchens, but since we are asked to design kitchens with white cabinets so often, I thought they merited another review.
First, to be perfectly accurate, the title of this article should be 10 Kitchens with White Cabinets, but that title didn’t quite roll off the tongue.
Now to be fair, we love the natural finish cabinets that our favorite cabinet makers build as well as the many cabinets which are painted all sorts of colors. It seems our clients always bring us back to white. As I have said before, my kitchen cabinets are white(really off white) and even though we have changed the color of the walls, we keep the cabinet color the same.
In my last post about white kitchens I talked about their connection to 20th century butler’s pantries: ‘White kitchen cabinets always remind me of the beautiful butlers’ pantries in turn of the century great estates. Tall cabinet doors, glass panes, and solid hardware made a functional yet stunning place to work. White kitchen cabinets never seem to go out of style-and if they do, it is easy to change the color.’
The only other suggestion I have regarding kitchens, be they white or any other color, is that they match the style of the home. Remember that the kitchen is really a place to have fun and at the same time get some cooking done.
