The Benefits of Having White Kitchen Cabinets

kitchen remodel ideas

When it comes to decorating a kitchen, color is everything. But have you ever considered going with white cabinets instead of the standard cream, tan or wood-colored ones? White kitchen cabinets actually offer a number of benefits, including:

The classic look – white represents cleanliness and purity – two things that definitely apply to your kitchen! White cabinets can complement virtually any other type of color in your kitchen. For example, you could paint red walls above them for a bright country style. In contrast, black countertops and trim would provide an edgy contrast to white cabinetry. Of course, if you decide that you’d rather go all-white with your flooring as well as appliances and accessories, the possibilities are endless!

Here are three benefits of white kitchen cabinets:

They brighten up any space

If you’re looking to add some instant brightness to the room, white kitchen cabinets are definitely what you should aim for. These will instantly make your space look bigger, brighter, and lighter. Whether you have an open concept in the kitchen or a cozy corner in your dining room that can be easily transformed into a galley-style one, white cabinets will work well in either case.

They’re easy to clean

Who wouldn’t want something that’s not just safe for family members but also makes clean up easier? What woman doesn’t want to spend less time scrubbing and more time sipping coffee while watching her favorite morning show on TV? With white kitchen cabinets, you don’t need to worry about dirt and stains at all. Simply wipe them with a damp cloth regularly and they’ll look as good as new. No matter how dirty or greasy your hands get (think of busy mornings, when you’ve just run out of time to wash your hands).

They never go out of style

Last but not least, if you invest in white kitchen cabinets, they’ll be timeless. No matter how much the fashion industry changes over the years, these cabinets will always look as modern and chic as they did a decade ago. Also, if you have a huge collection of cookbooks or your china set is something that’s been passed on from one generation to another, fret not – white fixtures will complement their subtle hues beautifully.

They’re easily accessible

If you aren’t as sold on the idea as we are and refuse to believe that white kitchen cabinets can be beneficial, think about this – they’re easily accessible! You don’t have to know how to pick paint colors or wallpapers; you simply need to take out a cloth and wipe. Also, if there’s one thing that almost every household needs (apart from furniture and cooking stuff), it’s more storage space.

They’re flexible

Last but not least, if you feel that your kitchen needs some work, all you need is a fresh coat of paint and there you have it – an instantly refurbished room! No matter how fabulous and spacious your corner cabinet looks now, with white cabinets, it will look even more chic and modern. They also match well with almost anything so if you want to rearrange the room or simply add more space, you can always do so without worrying about mismatched colors ruining the entire look.


Kitchen cabinets are one of the most important investments in your home. So, it’s only fair that you take your time choosing the right ones for your house. Although painting your existing cabinets is easier and less expensive than getting new ones, you can’t deny that white kitchen cabinets offer an array of benefits over traditional colored countertops. If you’re on a budget but need extra storage space or if you simply want to add some charm to your humble abode, think about going with white (or even off-white) cabinetry today.
