White Kitchen Cabinets Still Most Popular Color
Custom Kitchen by Nova Homes of South Florida
It’s hard to believe that white kitchens could get any more popular. But the preference for white cabinets continues to soar. Sixty-seven percent of National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) members said that white is their top choice for cabinets, a 20% climb from two years ago. And layering white on white — white backsplashes beneath white cabinets on white countertops — was spotlighted in the Best in American Living Awards presented by the National Association of Home Builders. Whirlpool’s White Ice collection, with its glass-like glossy sheen, is being hailed as the first appliance exterior to rival stainless steel. White appliances are so much easier to keep clean than stainless, which smudges if you as much as look at it. Plus, the new icy look is simple, cool, and able to blend into transitional and contemporary styles. And since stainless has filtered down to the masses, it no longer has that expensive and exclusive cache it once had. But white will always have staying power.
Never the less, stainless steel is still reigning supreme. It seems stainless-steel wont go out of style any time soon, as 72% of respondents listed the standard silver finish as the top color choice for appliances. Black stainless steel also had a solid showing.
