Today, the most popular type of home improvement that homeowners want and do is kitchen remodeling. Kitchens are the main attraction and social hub of your home for preparing meals for your family and friends, a comfortable place to socialize and get together. Kitchen design and planning is the most important step in achieving personal appearance, practical and personalized use to meet your family's lifestyle and needs. One of the most popular colors kitchen designers choose is white. White kitchen cabinets can be used to make a subtle design statement or to represent a very dramatic distinctive look. The white color speaks for itself, and depending on the style of the kitchen cabinets and the style of the door, you can create a look that suits your personality. White kitchen cabinets are used for many different decorations such as contemporary, traditional, country, French, English, shaker, and many more. There are also many options of material used for kitchen cabinets such as; plastic laminate, white painted wood, high gloss lacquer, vinyl sheet, white stain and white finish, all with our design statement. Each of these styles has a distinctive look and can reflect your own personality.

White kitchen cabinets make countertop and accessory color options a little easier to choose from with accent color throughout the kitchen and surrounding rooms. Using white cabinets in any of the above styles can achieve a design that is timeless and elegant for years to come. Contemporary glossy white finishes give it a very sleek modern look, while raised panel door styles in white painted wood can give a warm traditional feel in a kitchen. Floor and counter colors are the main accent areas and can drastically give different moods with different colors. A traditional style white cabinet with hardwood floors is very popular and makes the kitchen feel very cozy and warm. Adding granite counter tops to this combination again can totally change the mood of the kitchen depending on color and texture.

The choice of color for household appliances is also very important and contributes to the overall design statement. I suggest that if you are planning a traditional style kitchen, use matching white wood front decorator panels on the dishwasher and refrigerator fronts as they will best match the overall look and use your choice for ovens, countertops and sinks like stainless steel or black. In a contemporary kitchen, many designers choose to accentuate all appliances with contrasting colors to create a more dramatic look. In the past, many people felt that white kitchen cabinets were for showrooms only and thought that white was too much work to maintain. With today's new wood finishes and synthetic materials, white kitchen cabinets are as easy to maintain as any other stained color. White kitchen cabinets have been in fashion for the past 20 years and show no signs of breaking out of style trends to date. It's much easier to change color themes from time to time by changing window treatments, mats, and countertop accessories with new accent colors if you like.
