White Kitchen Overall

White kitchen cabinets always remind me of the beautiful butlers’ pantries in turn of the century great estates.  Tall cabinet doors and 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.  In my own kitchen, we have changed the wall colors several times, but never changed the white cabinets.  Almost any counter and floor material work well with neutral cabinet colors.  With a mixture of solid and glass doors, we have the option to display our crystal and hide our canned peas.  In this picture, the only thing missing is some friends and family giving advice on how to cook dinner.

    Good morning
    I am happy to see that you added a few additional photos of this lovely white kitchen. We are getting ready to install white shaker cabinets in our kitchen and I am working on the details now. I noticed that you have the soap dispenser on the left, and the single faucet lever is also on the left. I am a leftie, but have found that all levers are on the right. Where can I find one that is on the left? Is it selfish of me to set up my kitchen as a leftie when my spouse and most everyone is right handed?
    Thank you.

    You only go around once. Make those righties work for it.

    I also love this kitchen!
    How long is the center island? The lights are gorgeous.
    I’m starting to plan a kitchen remodel with a 9 or 10 foot island.
