White Painted Cabinets Lend Style & Versatility
If you’ve been to a real estate showing of a home over 10 years old, you know even the most fashionable design trends rarely last long. Passage of a decade can relegate kitchen color palettes, materials and appliances to the “must update” category in minds of potential buyers. One exception to this rule is a kitchen with timeless, white painted cabinets. A classic look since the early 1900s, white cabinets continue to dominate kitchen design—taking their place among “Top Three Kitchen Looks,” year after year.
Why Do White Cabinets Stay Popular?
White cabinets are a kitchen design choice that fits easily with most home styles: contemporary, farmhouse, Mediterranean, traditional, modern and more.
White painted cabinets are easy to freshen up, and their enduring look offers many other advantages, too.
- Infinite hues & finishes. White cabinets can be painted to match any design style. You can find shades of white that add contrast to metal and stone architectural features or choose a version that complements organic elements like wood or rattan.
- Easy style updates. Without replacing or refacing white cabinets, you can transform your home’s look by simply changing accessories. Introducing color through window treatments, upholstery and decor refreshes and updates a dated kitchen—without the cost and inconvenience of a tear-out and redo.
- Expanded space. White painted cabinets add to the sense of space in your kitchen, creating an atmosphere of airiness, cleanliness and calm.
- Resale value. When it’s time to sell your home, you’ll have a head start attracting buyers. The classic aesthetics, popularity and decorating versatility of white cabinets appeal to a broad range of potential homeowners.
Cabinets Built to Suit Your Lifestyle
Your kitchen is a high-traffic area, and you may have concerns about keeping the clean, unblemished look of white cabinets. Choosing a glazed or distressed finish helps hide minor smudges and increases the design interest of your cabinets (especially those with decorative door styles). If you prefer white cabinets with a smooth look, uninterrupted by seams or touch-up spots, have them professionally installed and painted on-site.
