The more things change the more they stay the same. It is time to embrace the white kitchen, as it is here to stay. I remember back in the early 1990’s when white cabinets were more popular than ever. But, something happened and the majority of builders began offering primarily maple cabinets. Most were honey in color. This forced you into a warm color palette for that portion of your home. Fast forward to today and the cabinet color of choice is resoundingly white. But, why are white cabinets and kitchens so popular again? One word: information. As in, it is readily available. Whether you scour over Houzz.com or merely flip the pages of Architectural Digest each month, you will be certain to find a white kitchen in every price point across the spectrum.
