Kitchen fads may come and go, but white kitchens trends seem to never go away. A timeless look and universal appeal, that is great for homes of all ages, sizes and styles. Here are the 3 top reasons why white cabinets are a popular choice.
1. DESIGN FLEXIBILITY
White kitchens can act as a blank canvas for any other color. Any color would look great paired with white, even sharp, bright or very dark colors. This makes it the ultimate neutral. White cabinets can be combined with your favorite colors on the walls, floor tiles, counter-tops and accessories. This makes it versatile for change as well; adapting to any style or ease change of future remodels. They also create the ideal backdrop to show off a spectacular piece of furniture or favorite piece of art. White cabinetry can compliment any style perfectly.

White cabinets are by no means more sanitary than any other color or tone, but they do give that perception. Fresh and clean are the words most people want to associate with meal preparation and cooking.
3. LARGER APPEARANCE
