White cabinets make me happy.

Mine are white with drips of other colours. Not intentional drips, but drips just the same. (I have an eight-year-old son.)

So, I guess I should say that white cabinets make me happy when I am lucky enough to be near them.

Oh, no, not the white! I could destroy this kitchen in just one dinner, lol. However, I love the central island and bar stools and would be groovy with the white marble countertop I think I see in the background.

It always amazes me on the house-flipping shows how everyone immediately wants to tear our perfectly good cabinets. When the flipper keeps the cabinets, paints them white, and updates the hardware, I'm always impressed how great it looks! Here's to white cabinets.

I love the style of the kitchen but white in a kitchen I cook in would not be a good idea. I have yet to master the clean cooking thing!

Trust me, you'd get very tired of cleaning them after a while. Every tiny spot shows on white. Every fingerprint smudge, every splatter, every mark. And Goddess forbid that you splatter something that stains. You'll be looking at that stain forever.

My current kitchen has white cabinets and I hate them. The previous owner was a heavy smoker, and the new owners just painted over the old smoke stained paint. Whenever the kitchen is humid because we've been boiling something, the tar seeps out from under the old paint and runs in brown drips down the cabinets *shudders*. Then there's the splatter from a jug of blueberry juice I dropped. Never was able to get all those blue spots off the cabinet.

I'm from the more practical school of house decorating. A nice medium brown hides a world of stains.
