What You Need for White Cabinets

Before you get to work, you'll need to make sure you have the right equipment to hand. You will, of course, need some white paint! Choosing the color can seem like a challenge, with off-white, eggshell white, and bone white being the most popular choices. Once you've picked out your perfect color, make sure you have both a brush and a paint roller for your surfaces. Put down plenty of coverings, as white paint can be tricky to get out.

The Best White Kitchen Cabinets

As Sara has shown here, painting kitchen cabinets white can make your kitchen look both country and modern at the same time. The best white kitchen cabinet ideas are typically wooden cabinets in the shaker style (more on that later!), as these are best suited to creating that versatile look you should be aiming for. They're also the easiest to paint. Plastic and metal cabinets can also look great in white.  Get tutorial here

The Best White Storage Cabinets

As this Hometalker has shown, opting for a white storage cabinet is a great chance to flex your creative muscles. Giving rustic and aged storage cabinets a new breath of life with white paint is a hugely popular emerging trend, one that fits nicely into the recent upcycling craze. Doing as the above person has done and choosing an old storage cabinet, ideally mixing the tones of the wood, is a great way to achieve maximum effect. Get tutorial here

Choosing a White Bathroom Cabinet

White is all the rage with bathrooms in 2019. Creating a consistently bright color scheme in your bathroom can transform it into a place for relaxation and contemplation. Choosing the right white cabinet doors for your bathroom units can seem like a challenge. It's important to select a look that complements the rest of your bathroom and doesn't clash. Minimalist cabinet designs work best and are easiest to paint in a confined space. Get tutorial here

Painting Antique Cabinets White

Revitalizing your old antique cabinets with white paint can feel hugely rewarding and is a great opportunity to flex your creative muscles. It's important to remember to tread carefully when creating your antique white cabinets. The wood may be fragile, so you'll need to choose a paint that won't damage the surface. Make sure to add varnish at the end to keep your antique cabinet looking fresh. Get tutorial here

The White Bathroom Wall Cabinet

Going for a white bathroom wall cabinet is a great way to make a statement or add a clear decorative theme to your bathroom. As this Hometalker has shown, one creative option is to repurpose an old medicine cabinet, giving it a new look and a new role as a stylish decorative item. All you need is a screwdriver, some ornaments or antiques, and, of course, plenty of white paint. Get tutorial here

Brightening Your Backsplash with White Cabinets

Your kitchen backsplash is more than just a functional space. A big emerging trend in design right now involves using a backsplash to add charm and character to your kitchen. If you're crafty with your backsplash, then you'll want to try combining it with white cabinets. This will allow you to frame your backsplash, creating the effect of a feature wall for your kitchen.

Creating a White China Cabinet

A white china cabinet can give your home an almost magical, Disney-like effect. We'd recommend using tones such as duck-egg or a similar kind of soft white that will complement the china within. Make sure to leave plenty of drying time before you put the china into your newly painted cabinet, as you don't want to damage it! Get tutorial here

Painting Corner Cabinets White

A white corner cabinet will reinforce the soothing and Hygge ambience you might be aiming for, especially if you opt for the rustic-chic look like this Hometalker has done. One of the best ways to achieve this effect is with white chalk paint, which will leave the kind of soft, faded finish that will make your corner cabinet look older and more valuable. Make sure to paint the entirety of the cabinet before placing it in the corner, rather than just the visible sides.  Get tutorial here

White Shaker Kitchen - From the TV Show Flipp

It goes without saying that wood cabinets are the best surface to paint, as laminates can be a little bit tricky. But that doesn't mean you can't do it. Preparation is key; remove any knobs and hinges before you start painting to avoid any unpleasant splash marks. Tape off any parts you wish to remain paint-free, and always use a decent primer before you get going. Also, remember that the harder the finish, the longer it will last. Get tutorial here

The Best White Filing Cabinet Look

Filing cabinets are no longer purely functional pieces of furniture in 2019. Homes across America are repainting filing cabinets and transforming them into chic decorative items. As you can see, one way to do this is by opting for a pattern. The Art Deco lines work well here, but there are limitless options. Going for a two-color scheme works well, particularly when a white filing cabinet is matched with metallic colors.  Get tutorial here

Maintaining Your White Cabinets

It's no secret that white can require more maintenance than other colors. White paint tends to fade over time, and if left in the wrong conditions can even start to yellow. Pre-empt this by going for low-intensity light bulbs, as lighting is a major factor. Also, finish off your white paint jobs with a "hard" finish, such as semigloss, gloss, or satin.  Get tutorial here

Making White Cabinets Work for You

White cabinet trends are all about rejuvenation and light in 2019. While upcycling is a major trend, you can also buy completely new white cabinets in 2019. It's all about using your furniture to brighten up your home and turn it into a place where you and your guests feel at ease. Most importantly, it's all about what soothes you.  Get tutorial here
