Everywhere you look online, white kitchen cabinets are all the rage. Actually white kitchens have been around forever, we just have more opportunity to look into people’s homes thanks to the internet and Pinterest. Anyway, I am in the middle of painting my cabinets white and I thought I’d share some great (and popular) white paint colors for kitchen cabinets.
5 Popular White Paint Colors
1. BM White Dove – a soft warm white with a touch of gray.
2. BM Chantilly Lace – a true white that is not too gray or creamy.
3. BM Swiss Coffee – a creamy white.
4. SW Alabaster – a warm but crisp white. It’s often compared with BM White Dove.
5. SW Pure White – a crisp white
These are just a few of the whites I considered when I was trying to choose a color for my own kitchen cabinets. It took me several tries to pick “the one” for my cabinets but I finally found the perfect color.
If I could give you one good tip on choosing paint for your cabinets it is to try it in your room (not just with the paint chip). I bought a few pieces of poster board and painted them with the samples I picked out. Use painter’s tape to put your sample on your cabinet and keep it there for several days, look at it in daylight and at night. Try it all around your room, even near your appliances and backsplash material, and you’ll find your white. Picking a paint color for your kitchen cabinets doesn’t have to be stressful.
Which one of these white paint colors did I go with?
We went with Benjamin Moore White Dove, and it was the perfect choice. I also used it on the trim, doors and 4 of the ceilings throughout our house. It’s safe to say that it’s one of my favorite paint colors.
