All-white kitchens have been extremely popular, but to keep them from feeling like sterile boxes, beautiful millwork is key. Sticking with straightforward yet traditional elements such as raised-panel cabinet doors, recessed-panel drawers, and architecturally correct use of moldings ensures timeless good looks. Here the paneling and molding create highlights and shadows that add texture to the room.
This look can be achieved via numerous finishes such as paint, glossy lacquer, melamine, or veneer. No matter what your budget, a clean, modern white kitchen can be yours. White kitchen cabinets also pair very well with numerous styles of drawer pulls. If this clean, easy option sounds appealing, then maybe a white kitchen is in your future. Just keep a cleaning rag on hand to wipe away all those dirty finger prints.
It is important to note that finish color and wood selection are sometimes (and erroneously) used interchangeably. For example, "cherry" is sometimes used to describe the color of a certain type of kitchen cabinet. Cherry is actually the type of wood, and we will discuss this later. To confuse matters more, wood stains take on different colors when applied to different types of woods. So, it is necessary to look at wood types and stains in conjunction with each other, similar to the Keidel Cabinet Wood Finish chart above (see link below for the Keidel site).
