White kitchen cabinets are a very affordable option for kitchen remodeling, which is why they are so popular. However, it’s easy to get stuck on designing the rest of the kitchen with all that white.

Our professionals at Affordable Kitchens understand how hard this can be. In fact, we only stock white cabinets, so many of our customers have gone through the same thing. We thought we would put together a few ideas to help you work with those beautiful, but stark, white cabinets.
To Contrast Or Blend In With The White Cabinets?
What do you want your kitchen to be? If you want it to be the showpiece of your home, make the kitchen stand out by choosing contrasting color instead of blending the white cabinets into the background.
There’s no telling where you are getting your cabinets from, but if they are modern white like ours -it will be easy to create a new kitchen design. Think about going with a modern red, blue, or green wall paint. Let the cabinets be the backdrop to showcase the countertops, and use color on the wall for accent.
Or if going bold is too much for you, consider designing the kitchen the easy way. Use a monochrome color scheme. Your white cabinets can be coupled with varying shades that range from white to darker gray.
If you really want the cabinets to blend into the background, install white floors and paint the walls in a pretty cream color. Choose white appliances and you’re all set!
