Choosing the Perfect Shade of White for Your Kitchen
The white kitchen cabinet is one of the few colors that will never go out of fashion. It is consistently rated as one of the top three cabinet colors in numerous surveys. White cabinets make kitchens appear larger and inspire feelings of cleanliness and positivity, both of which are appreciated by many. There are many shades of white available to suit different tastes and styles.
Here are some questions and tips that you can ask yourself to help you through the process.
Know That Many Undertones Exist
Isolate any white color and you might not notice the subtle differences. However, comparing it with other whites will show you how versatile this color can be. The color white can have hints of green, yellow, or even pink, which can change the way your cabinets blend with their environment. To choose your favorite shade more easily, compare a variety of samples in your kitchen and become accustomed to spotting the differences.
What Colors Appear in Your Other Elements?
Examine all the elements surrounding your cabinets, including countertops, flooring, wall paint, backsplashes, and appliances, and pay attention to their colors and interactions. Your cabinetry will either complement or clash with its surrounding elements depending on which white you select.
How Bright Is Your Kitchen?
White is especially affected by light, and some people prefer brighter, warmer spaces with low lighting while others prefer radiant bursts of light. In spaces with ample natural light, whiter shades like snow can enhance the brightness of the room.
