Pros and Cons of White Kitchen Cabinets

Pros and Cons of White Kitchen Cabinets

On the fence about whether to install white kitchen cabinets? Here are the pros and cons.

Choosing your kitchen’s color scheme can be a fun part of the kitchen renovation process. You may have considered this aspect for a long time, imagining the right flooring, cabinet, and countertop colors. If you intend to play it safe, your first go-to choice might be a mainly while kitchen, with classic white kitchen cabinets. As this is a common sight in the kitchen design world, one must ask, “What are the pros and cons of white kitchen cabinets?”



White kitchen cabinets are indeed classic, which is what makes them such a great choice. White never goes out of style, unlike all possible shades in the rainbow, which come and go as trends dominate the decades. 


White is also a flexible color in kitchen design, as it matches with practically any other color. Should you change the window treatments, the flooring, or the decor, your alterations won’t clash with the cabinetry, especially if it is a brighter white.


Lighter colors make a space feel brighter, lighter, and larger. White cabinets give a sense of cleanliness and airiness, which can be a huge plus for smaller kitchens. Even so, white kitchen cabinets will significantly cheer up your kitchen, no matter what size.


Shows Dirt

A downside of white cabinetry is that dirt, grease, and wear and tear will show much more clearly. Wear and tear can be an eyesore, and grime simply builds up faster than many families can clean up. However, if you are keen to clean, seeing the dirt could be a benefit to you.

Difficult to Match

The number of color shades is infinite, but finding the right shade of white is one of the most challenging tasks known to home design. With so many shades and tones from which to choose, it can be difficult to find the right one for your kitchen’s conditions without testing several options.

Too Common?

White kitchens are very common. Could they be too common in today’s designs? A white kitchen is classic and beautiful on its own; however, if you want something different from many other homes, white may be one choice you pass over.
