25 kitchens with white cabinets to be inspired by – COCO LAPINE DESIGN
Choosing white cabinets for the design of your kitchen is probably the safest bet you can make when you want a kitchen that is timeless. When you pick out a high-quality kitchen and opt for a white color palette, it can last for years to come. You can always update the faucet and the hardware to give it a slightly updated look over time when needed.
While it’s probably the safest choice, it doesn’t mean a white kitchen design has to be boring. Below you can find my top picks of kitchens in white, ranging from a traditional to a more modern kitchen design, from custom cabinets to Ikea models and many different layouts to be inspired by.
My top 25 favorite white kitchen cabinet ideas
Minimal white cabinets with black hardware and marble countertops
This well-designed, minimal white kitchen is built inside a turn-of-the-century apartment with intricated details in the architecture. The crown moldings, curved windows, and herringbone hardwood flooring are toned down by the subtle interior design of the kitchen.
The white marble on the countertops and on the impressive kitchen island with the built-in gas stove is a true show-stopper in this large kitchen.
No upper cabinetry is used throughout the design, yet a large module has been placed on the wall opposing the windows. The black hardware and faucet contrast with the white cabinetry, which also comes back in the ceiling lamp and the ceramic vases on the counter.
Off-white shaker kitchen with a limestone countertop and a breakfast bar
Rather than going for a crisp white, off-white cabinetry can often have a softer effect on the interior design of a kitchen. The white wall color combined with the dark wood flooring and the beige limestone countertop has a very warm effect in the kitchen that has been toned down by the chrome hardware and the stainless steel hood.
The corner layout of the kitchen offers a lot of storage space on a small surface, while the kitchen island offers the possibility of a breakfast bar.
Minimal white cabinets with wall-to-wall upper cabinets
This modern kitchen features minimal white cabinets that are built into a niche-like space up onto the adjacent wall. The white wall color, white cabinets, and light oak hardwood flooring are warmed up by the limestone countertops and the impressive black marble dining table by the window brings some contrast to the palette.

The beautiful white cabinetry in this kitchen with off-white walls has been enhanced with white marble on the counter and backsplash, small brass hardware, and a black wall lamp. The exhaust has been hidden in a cabinet as well for a minimal look.
The real contrasting piece in this beautiful white kitchen is the beautiful vintage wood dining table, which adds so a different texture to the space.

White cabinets and floating marble shelving underneath a sloped ceiling
The minimal white cabinetry in this kitchen by interior designer WTP studios with sloped ceilings has been enhanced by grey marble on the countertops, and on the sloped wall for such an impressive effect. The grey marble has also been used as floating shelves above the sink.

Minimal white cabinets with wall-to-wall floating shelving
I love the way the hood has been built into the layout of this small kitchen with white floors, walls, and ceilings. The hood has been built into a cabinet and has been matched with floating shelves on each side for an integrated effect.
The limestone countertops and the black wall lamp add just the right amount of warmth and contrast to this otherwise white space, while the dark palette of the small round dining table and chairs also adds visual interest to all the white surfaces.

Minimal white kitchen with a zellige tile backsplash and wood finishes
The design of these kitchen cabinets might be minimal, yet the addition of the zellige tiles as a backsplash going all the way up to the ceiling makes this kitchen so interesting. The tiles provide a textured yet neutral backdrop to the limestone counters and the round marble dining table combined with the J39 dining chairs complete the look nicely.

White cabinetry without hardware for a minimal look
The minimal kitchen cabinetry has the same off-white color as the wall for a tone-on-tone look contrasted by the black faucet and wall lamps. The limestone countertops and the beige full-width curtains add a lot of warmth to the setting with mostly lower cabinets and the black HAY loop dining table combined with the oak J39 chairs match the minimal look and color palette of the space.

Minimal white shaker cabinet doors without hardware for a minimal yet classy
The classic cabinetry in this off-white kitchen designed by Lotta Agaton doesn’t have any cabinet hardware, which makes this sleek design minimal yet classic. The layout consists mostly of lower cabinetry, which is enhanced by a minimal floating shelf above the sink.
The closed cabinets of the minimal kitchen are joined by a cabinet with a glass front and oak wood inlay which goes perfectly with the large oak dining table and benches by the window. I love that the color scheme of the kitchen cabinets matches that of the walls and ceiling, while the wood tones in the dining area match the color of the hardwood flooring.

The all-white kitchen cabinets, white marble on the backsplash and countertop, and the white floating shelf give this space a clean and bright appearance which has been brought out even more by the chrome faucet and cabinet hardware.

Off-white cabinets for a warm yet minimal effect
The natural light in this beautiful kitchen is just off the charts and the off-white wall color is matched by the kitchen cabinets for a beautiful tone-on-tone look. The layout of the kitchen consists of low cabinets mostly, with the exception of the single higher module that holds the fridge, and the vitrine cabinet with the oak wood inlay you can spot in the dining room section of the kitchen.

White cabinets with integrated handles and stainless steel appliances

A cream-white shaker kitchen with chrome cabinet handles and oak inlays
The warm tone of the cream-white kitchen cabinets in this shaker kitchen has been accentuated by the oak inlays in the open kitchen components and behind the glass cabinet doors. These wood tones are matched by the different wood species on the dining table and the dining chairs and the shaker kitchen has been finished off with chrome details and a limestone countertop.
Minimal white kitchen with white marble tiles and a stainless steel exhaust
The most impressive element in this minimal white kitchen is the beautiful grain in the white marble backsplash that goes high up towards where the stainless steel hood ends.
