Spacious design

While dark cabinets are ideal for larger, spacious kitchens, white kitchen cabinets are perfect for any size of kitchen, and especially if you have a smaller space to work with, as they can brighten up the space. White kitchen cabinets can make your kitchen feel welcoming, warm and airy, as they will reflect light and make the room look larger.

Modern white kitchen cabinet ideas

There are many different styles of white kitchen cabinets that you can choose from, which will influence the kitchen’s overall look. From an antique style to the combination of a black countertop with white cabinets, we have some intriguing ideas that you can check out.

All-white kitchens

All-white kitchens create a modern, luxury kitchen look, and we are not surprised by the enduring popularity. Many celebrities, for example, create a contemporary all-white kitchen purely because of how bright, modern and striking it looks. A few carefully positioned accessories, such as silver accents and maybe a colourful vase or two, will complete the all-white kitchen look in your home and prevent the aesthetic from appearing clinical.

Accent walls

Even though we love the idea of an all-white kitchen, we understand that not every homeowner does, which is why we want to introduce you to another idea – an accent wall. By combining an accent wall with white cabinets, you will create an eye-catching kitchen that showcases your personality and style. The contrast will create a timeless, unique appearance which you will enjoy for years to come.

Two-tone kitchen cabinets

Whilst an all-white kitchen or an accent wall are both stunning design options, there is another way to incorporate white cabinets into your kitchen design. A two-tone effect involves blending modern white kitchen cabinets with a different colour for your wall cupboards. This two-tone design is especially beneficial if you have a small space, as you can opt for a darker shade on the bottom cabinets, with white cabinets on the walls; this balances the look and creates an illusion of more space.

Kitchen Island

One key feature that will always make your white kitchen cabinets stand out is incorporating a distinctive kitchen island. A kitchen island will break up the uniformity of the kitchen colour, especially if it is an all-white kitchen, and will be the focal point of your room. 

Kitchen islands are usually in almost any type of kitchen with a large floor plan, as their versatile nature makes them perfect for prepping food, eating, working or chatting.  


Modern white kitchen cabinets will be a popular option for stylish homeowners for years to come, but how you incorporate them into your kitchen is entirely up to you.
