A little over a year ago I attended a designer event and met the editor of New England Home Magazine. She was making the rounds asking all the designers if they had a kitchen project that was NOT white because she was so bored of publishing white kitchens. She felt they were all looking alike (white cabinets, marble counters and subway tiles) and was desperate to get something different to her audience.

Fast forward to last week. While having a conversation with one of the cabinetry showrooms at the Boston Design Center I asked what percentage of their business comprised white cabinets. The showroom manager told me white cabinets make up a full 70-75% of their business.

While attending the 2016 Kitchen and Bath Show with Modenus as part of BlogTourVegas, I shared HERE how I saw very few white cabinets in the booth displays. Is this a sign that white cabinets might be waning?  One of our sponsors, WoodMode, had a booth filled with beautiful cabinet options other than white. Take a look and see if you still think white is the only option for you.

The WoodMode booth was very crowded making taking photos a little challenging.

The above cabinets are quarter sawn white oak and the color is shale with a pewter glaze. I love the brick red accent cabinetry and matching hood.

This cabinet above is sandblasted rift-cut white oak with distressing and stainless steel drawers. Gorgeous…right?

As was this ribbon Mahogany cigar bar cabinet display.

Wood Mode also has painted cabinetry and being a custom cabinetry line you can have any color you can dream of.

If you still think you want white though, Wood Mode has you covered for that as well.

So what are your thoughts on white cabinets. Do you think white will remain as popular as it has been or are you ready for a change?
