The Classic White Kitchen

A short time ago a friend of mine asked for advice on what color to refinish/repaint her kitchen cabinets.

My immediate response… paint it white.

White kitchens are a quintessential favorite. They are bright, airy and fresh. Wood grains can begin to date themselves as well as trend specific colors (i.e. 70s avocado); however, white cabinets never seem to go out of style.

If you’re not a fan of stark white kitchens there are always alternatives. Creamy antique white is another timeless color option or applying an antique glaze can soften existing white cabinets.

Alternatively, selecting a contrast wall color or backsplash can be another way to infuse color.
