Browse through Pinterest or Houzz, my go to websites for design ideas, and you'll notice an overwhelming trend of all white kitchens. Even Influencers on Instagram and Twitter from fitness to lifestyle bloggers and plenty of television programs show us homes with white kitchens.
One thing is for sure, today's buyers from Gen Y and Zennials, prefer the look of all white to the dark wood or honey oak that was so popular when we were growing up which is why we're all on the lookout for something different. Often that something different is something old we just kind of dusted off to use again. Check out how many times white kitchens were considered in over the last 100 years.
While I love the look of all white kitchens sometimes white just isn't practical for maintenance. Read: white is a lot of work to keep clean. If you're like me and wondering what other non-honey oak or cherry options are out there, then take a look at these refreshing spins on all white.
A word of caution for sellers...if you're thinking of updating your kitchen cabinet colors for resale, I recommend consulting a professional stager, designer, or me before choosing a color other than white. I have seen updated cabinet colors work very successfully in some of the less energetic greens, blues, and grays in our area. Any Cape Cod themed blues - also not super vibrant - are sure to be successful if done properly and professionally. When updating for selling your goal is to appeal to the broadest pool of buyers. When updating for living you can literally do anything you want on trend - just realize you may need to neutralize when it comes time to sell.
Long story short: all white kitchens are still selling homes.
