White kitchens might be harder to keep clean, but a high-quality paint makes the task easier. White kitchens are bright and soothing, they match any accent, and they never go out of style.

Here are some great whites to use as a base or accent color:

  • Chatsworth Cream (Benjamin Moore)
    Deep, warm, off-white that pairs well with other neutrals.
  • Simply White (Benjamin Moore)
    Very vibrant basic white that makes walls look pristine.
  • Creamy (Sherwin-Williams)
    Vibrant without a glare, this color enhances natural and artificial light.
  • Paper White (Benjamin Moore)
    Off-white with touches of gray. A little more forgiving when it comes to cleaning, this is a good color for families with young children.
  • Antique White (Sherwin-Williams)
    Deep white that draws the room in creating a cozy feel and lending a truly classic look.
  • Polar Bear (Behr)
