Follow the light to a bigger kitchen!
A popular reason people often have for choosing white cabinet doors is the space that comes with them. When remodeling a kitchen, this is something to think about. Does your kitchen look or feel small? How much natural light is there? A darker stained or painted kitchen will always appear smaller than a brighter and lighter one. A smaller kitchen with dark cabinets feels like a cave, dark and cramped. If you take the same size room and paint its cabinets white, you are left with what appears to be a much larger room. If you want to create the illusion of more space, white is your best bet.
White Cabinet Doors: So fresh and so clean!
Simply put, white cabinet doors are clean. The light that it puts off helps to give any room a crisp, clean look. People looking for a more modern, minimalistic kitchen will look to white to achieve this. Do you have a big party coming up? Luckily, decorating around white cabinets is easy. White goes with anything. If you are worried about your kitchen being too white, there are certainly alternatives. White can be bright but it can also be soft. Colors like Ivory and Cotton offer a warmer alternative to a standard white. There are even colors available that offer the slightest hint of grey. Another thing you can decide to do is to add glaze. This adds a level of custom, to any door that looks amazing. It also helps to darken the doors a bit, if you are worried about going all white.
