You've picked your countertops, selected a backsplash, and chosen the light fixtures for your new kitchen. All that's left to do is decide what color you're going to make your RTA cabinets.

Choosing your cabinet color can transform your kitchen by enhancing it with the right color or diminishing it with the wrong one.

And cabinets are the most expensive part of your kitchen remodel, sometimes taking up as much as half of your budget. This makes it even more vital that you choose a great color. You don't want to redo your cabinets for a high cost or get stuck with ones you don't like.

We've put together the following quick guide explaining why white RTA cabinets are the most design-friendly and convenient choice for your kitchen.

Ultimate Neutral

Your kitchen will be one of the most used spaces in your home, so you'll want everything to feel just right. But you may have to get creative to make every element work together.

The kitchen may have original flooring that you want to keep or a particular decorative element that you wish to accent, both of which will require a cabinet choice that compliments their look.

You may have fallen in love with a bright backsplash that rules out a long list of other colors you can use.

White is the perfect cabinet choice for a kitchen with unique design features or complicated color palettes because it matches everything. It is no wonder why the popular color has been called the ultimate neutral.

Easy to Update

Designing your kitchen is often a months-long process that requires attention to every detail. Once your kitchen remodel is complete, you tell yourself, you'll never change it again.

Even if you have the perfect kitchen, your tastes and needs will likely change over the years. Redoing your entire kitchen is not a convenient or inexpensive option.

With white cabinets, though, you can redesign the feel of your kitchen quickly. White is a color amenable to most new hardware, different light fixtures, or a new accent color.

And cabinets are the most expensive part of your kitchen to install and update. With white kitchen cabinets, you won't have to redo one of the most significant parts of your kitchen to have a different look.


While white cabinetry gives you more versatility when you want to change the feel of your kitchen, you don't have to do anything at all.

White cabinets are one of the most classic options out there. Home design trends come and go, but you can be confident that your white cabinets will always give a fresh feel to your kitchen.

Choosing white cabinets will make your home more appealing should you wish to sell it. Certain shades of wood will require the right buyer to appreciate their look. Most people find white cabinets attractive.

Because of their timeless nature, white cabinets are an excellent choice for almost any decor style, including:

  • farmhouse
  • industrial 
  • modern
  • mid-century
  • minimalist
  • shabby chic
  • coastal
  • Scandinavian

And these are just a few of the styles perfect for white cabinets.


Confident style choices will make your kitchen feel more open and inviting, and white cabinetry is one of them.

Since white reflects light, using the color white for an element of your kitchen that is as expansive as cabinets will completely open up the space.

If you use white cabinets with white walls or ceilings, it will create the illusion of more space by removing boundaries in the kitchen.


The size and style of your home will give your kitchen a different feel. For instance, a contemporary space will likely have an open floor plan with few walls separating areas.

A light color such as white will open up the space and invite you to move quickly between rooms.

A smaller floor plan will likely mean your kitchen won't be as spacious.

Dark cabinetry colors like brown, dark grey, or maroon may be too overwhelming for a layout like this. White cabinetry will prevent your kitchen space from looking cluttered.


White isn't just a neutral color; it's also a foundational one. Choosing the color white gives you a blank slate for the rest of your kitchen design.

You can experiment with different colors, textures, and lighting schemes with white cabinets as your base.

If you struggle to pull together a room, white cabinets will give you flexibility in your designs plans.

You can also try a few different cabinet styles, from floor-to-ceiling cabinets or open concept cabinets. White cabinets will almost always look good.


When you think of the color white, what comes to mind?

Most of us associate white with positive feelings and moods. You may not realize that white appeals to us cognitively because it is the presence of light.

From doves to a clean slate, white evokes a sense of purity and new beginnings. This is a great feeling to have when you're about to cook a creative dish or make your fresh cup of coffee each morning.
