A classic kitchen design that should not be overlooked: white kitchens. Opting for white cabinets over a kitchen cabinet stain in your new construction kitchen or kitchen remodel can fullfill a variety of needs.

White naturally reflects light, having a kitchen that has white will make the space seem brighter and more open, even if you don’t have windows within the immediate room. Another way to further achieve this effect is to have white glass kitchen cabinets

If you are lucky enough to have a kitchen with windows, white is a great complement to the natural light.  A white kitchen with windows really pops!

Whether your kitchen is totally white or simply has white kitchen cabinets, white is a timeless color that meshes with many interior kitchen design schemes. 

Gibson design group recently did a kitchen design with white cabinets and black granite countertops. A classic kitchen design combination.

Even if traditional kitchen design is not your style. White works with modern kitchen design as well.

White is also a great way to accent a specific characteristic of your kitchen. In the picture below the highlighted beamed ceiling kitchen doesn’t compete with the white/light colors of the rest of the kitchen.

Above all, white is not a trendy color. If your kitchen is traditionally designed in white it will never go out of style.
