3 Types of White Kitchen Cabinets Explained

Many people, when choosing different kitchen cabinets, only think of two choices, white or wood.  What most people do not realize is that each category comes with a number of different styles, each with its own unique look.  A white kitchen can come in many differing styles, but here we are going to cover three of the major style themes of white kitchens.

White Shaker

Ivory Is White

Classic White

They Are All Great

Whichever white kitchen you choose, you really can’t go wrong.  Sticking to the theme of your home is easy to do, especially with all the choices available, and with the right cabinet hardware you can make a kitchen theme which will really stand out.  Lots of light and the feel of being roomy and spacious—you can’t go wrong with a white kitchen!
