White Kitchen Cabinets: From Warm to Cool Shades

If you have ever been to the paint store to buy a can of white paint, you have been through the complex journey of deciding exactly what white you want! White comes in many shades and, when it comes to cabinets, it also comes in many finishes, so it is important to find the right white to match your style.

White is often considered the most elegant and versatile color in the designer’s tool kit. A white space can create a wide range of style and ambiance. White cabinets can make a small studio space look bigger, or they can provide the perfect neutral backdrop for a stunning spacious modern kitchen.  

At Zen Living, we have a broad selection of white kitchen cabinets in various finishes and shades of white, which are guaranteed to meet your needs if you are dreaming of a white kitchen.  

Let's explore what is included in our range of white kitchen cabinets. We will start with our top sellers:

1. SR Oxford White LQ-21704

Our ongoing best-selling white kitchen cabinet, the Oxford White, is a classic, clean, crisp, and multi-purpose white that goes well with almost any architectural and interior design aesthetics. This elegant, neutral-toned shade of white can go with any style of kitchen, from traditional to contemporary. Its painted finish is smooth and has no edge sealing, so, it is far easier to keep clean. Oxford White cabinets are a safe, yet stylish choice for any space.

2. White Diamond LQ-21885

A close relative to the Oxford White, the White Diamond kitchen cabinet is romantic and soft. Although it maintains the promise of bringing an element of light to any space, its creamy warm tone provides a more soothing, cozy effect for any modern white kitchen space.

3. Decorators White LQ-108739

With the slightest touch of a cool grey undertone, the Decorators White kitchen cabinet is all about a minimalist modern look and feel. Efficient and easy to clean, with smooth edge sealing, this finish is the perfect backdrop to add a vibrant pop of colour when and where you choose. This beautiful finish is versatile and works well with a variety of kitchen aesthetics. For homeowners that prefer a clean contemporary kitchen, the Decorators White cabinet is an excellent choice.

4. True White LL2250

Our brightest white with a cool undertone, the True White kitchen cabinet is as close as it gets to the purest shade of white we have in our selection at Zen Living. Despite its brightness, the matte texture ensures it will not overshadow other colours in your modern kitchen design.  

As for the finish, a matte lacquer laminate formula is glued onto the surface of the MDF board. During the process, fringe lines can also be removed for a more seamless look. The result is a smudge-proof, scratch-proof matte finish that is smooth to the touch. Due to its inexpensive manufacturing process, True White is a great stylish, yet economical alternative to our Oxford White kitchen cabinets.

5. Ultra White LQ-108743

The Zen Living Ultra White kitchen cabinet is a muted white with a cool undertone. This beautiful shade of white will bring an elegant look and feel to your space. Like our other options, the combination of its shade, temperature, and finish allows it to be the main colour of your kitchen or function as the blank canvas for any color palette you may choose. Just like the Oxford White and the White Diamond painted cabinets, it has a smooth finish that is easy to clean and maintain.

6. Acrylic White PARC01

If maximum lighting potential is what you have in mind, then this shade of white is the one for you. Because of its glossy acrylic finish, Acrylic White is highly reflective and works well with generous lighting, whether natural or artificial. Its subtle creamy undertone gives it a softer appearance than traditional white. Acrylic White kitchen cabinets are especially well-suited to smaller kitchens as their light-maximizing potential has an enlarging effect on any space.

Acrylic White is highly resistant to scratches and scuffs from daily usage. However, its cost is considerably higher than other options.

7. UV White ARI01

Our UV White kitchen cabinets are designed for sleek, shiny, modern visual styling. It has a bright, glossy finish and a cool undertone. The UV White kitchen cabinet has a similarly smooth, glossy finish as the Acrylic White kitchen cabinets, it is just slightly less glossy. Laminate White has anti-ultraviolet properties, which keep your cabinets looking brand new.
