Is White alright in YOUR Kitchen?
Popular white kitchen cabinets gleam with pizzazz, do you agree? If you are considering white to reface your existing kitchen cabinets, or for new cabinetry altogether, you are not alone in your colour choice.
From traditional to contemporary, rustic farmhouse, shaker, or sleek and streamlined transitional looks, a kitchen anchored with versatile white cabinetry brings a crisp, fresh appeal to a range of design styles. Additionally, white enlarges the appearance of a space and helps reflect available light — all a plus in prep areas. Plus, aging eyes will appreciate the extra boost of brightness, especially in a kitchen workspace.
Countertop Choices for White Kitchen Cabinetry
Deciding on warm or cool tones in your colour palette is an essential first step. However, equally important is the overall look and feel that you want to achieve, as well as the functional preferences of your household, i.e., countertop maintenance, eco-friendly materials, seamless finishes, textural elements, heat and scratch-resistance, etc.
Not surprisingly, budgets play a significant role in the type of countertop a homeowner chooses too. Granite, quartz and laminate are all excellent countertop choices. But, here is a simple style overview of how to choose the best countertop for your white kitchen cabinets:
1. Decide on an overall design theme and choose you design and colour, whether refacing, getting new cabinetry or going custom.
2. Select a countertop colour and thoughtfully complement or contrast your design.
Then finalise your options, and choose a countertop material based on the performance that best suits your personal use and needs. A mix of countertops is also a sought after design option to consider.
