White, while always considered a timeless color, has really made a comeback in kitchen design in recent years. It's bright and crisp which makes it a showstopper in the kitchen. The color works exceptionally well as both a cabinet and countertop color. So why not have both in the kitchen?

Having such a cool color scheme requires a balance of the other kitchen features, so this look certainly isn't for everyone. But if you can strike the right balance and overall feel, you'll have a classy looking space on your hands. If you want this look but aren't quite sure how to achieve it, you're in the right place. We put together a photo guide of 18 white cabinets with white countertops for your convenience. Without further ado, let's check them out!
1. Sleek Modern White
If you want all white countertops and cabinets, why not go all-in with a completely white kitchen? Floors, curtains, and appliances share the bright white hue. The kitchen looks extremely modern. The best way to incorporate color in your all-white kitchen is with a fruit bowl and some live (or faux!) plants.
2. Classic Contemporary
This kitchen is washed in a contemporary aesthetic. It's sleek, minimalistic, and eye-catching. Brushed silver hardware and pendant lines bring in the right amount of metallic accents.
3. Brightening Features
In a kitchen that lacks a lot of natural light, bright features are key to promoting an open feeling. White is hands down the best option for making this happen.
4. Floating Shelves
Break up your walls of plain cabinets with a couple of floating shelves. Then, fill the empty space with organic textiles and color in order to add valuable interest.
5. Natural Wood Trim
If you're afraid that your white countertops and cabinets will look undefined in the kitchen, use a different color for the trim. The natural wood trim in this kitchen brings a welcoming organic feeling into the room. It helps soften the bright white features and appliances, too. And if you ever get tired of the natural wood trim, you can always paint it.
6. Sage Green Accents
Accent walls are quite the trend these days, even in the kitchen. A color like this mossy sage green is the perfect color companion for a kitchen, as it's soft yet inviting.
7. Marbled Accents
To mix things up with your white cabinets and countertops, bring in a second color as the accent. A smokey marbled gray color serves as a great accent to the otherwise white features.
8. Country Kitchen
Did you know you could create a country kitchen with all white features? From glossy subway tile walls to luxurious marble countertops to satin white cabinets, this kitchen looks dreamy. Weathered wood floors add effortless rustic charm to the space. Natural light flows in through the sheer-covered windows.
9. Details In The Trim
The smooth finish of the cabinets basks the kitchen in a look of crispness. Small detailed trim on each cabinet door elevates its aesthetic.
If you want perfectly smooth cabinets like these, it's all about the painting technique. Read this guide for more information: How To Get A Smooth Finish When Painting Kitchen Cabinets.
10. A Glossy Sheen
Glossy cabinets make for a brighter, more modern look than their matte counterparts. Minimalism is all about restraint in design. However, the pieces that are in the room are meaningful and can stand on their own.
11. Whites And Grays
White and gray meshes with a wide variety of styles. Churn in accent colors around these two primary neutrals in order to design a timeless, classic kitchen. The hardware stands out against the soft white cabinets.
12. Modern Black And White
Black and white is one of the most classic, timeless color combinations. The dark and light features just work together as they contrast each other in the best ways.
13. Monochromatic Scheme
Picking colors in a kitchen can be overwhelming, so don't shy away from utilizing a nearly monochromatic color scheme. The look is effortless yet deliberate.
14. Trending Geometric Patterns
Geometric patterns are an excellent way to infuse your kitchen space with more intrigue, especially when used as backsplashes that turn into accent walls.
15. An Eclectic Collection
An eclectic kitchen is all about cohesiveness in unexpected ways. Black features, such as the hardware, tiles, and pendant lighting, throughout the space marry it together.
16. A Hint Of Blue
Cabinets don't have to have only one color covering them. Why not opt for two? Initiate a color blocking scheme by using white for one half of the cabinets and an accent color for the other half of the cabinets, such as this dark navy blue. The color adds some valuable depth without taking up too much real estate in the kitchen.
17. Countryside Kitchen
Transport yourself into the European countryside with a kitchen like this one. The white cabinets and countertops are accompanied by royal blue trim and a colorful mosaic backsplash. Vibrantly colored accents are the spotlight in this kitchen.
18. Baby Blue Accents
One way to add subtle color to your white kitchen is with a soft accent color. A baby blue glossy tile backsplash may be just what the room needs. As you can see, the backsplash color also pulls from the wall color and accents in the connected living room. Having a sharded color throughout the rooms helps tie the home's overall aesthetic together.
