This morning we had a new client walk in, (thanks Dale!).
He explained, that he wanted to fix up his rental property to sell.
Dale is the third in the past few months planning to cash in on a very much improved housing market. When he told me that, we both said in unison, "White Shaker!"
White Shaker, is the darling of HGTV and Pinterest, white cabinetry is wildly popular.
Actually the "clean" aspect of white cabinets was more marketing than anything else. White was the only color manufacturers had to offer. It was associated with sanitation and health..
White was sold as easy to clean, a housewife could see every spec of dirt, crumbs etc. White is crisp, clean and since it reflects light will make even the tiniest of kitchens look more spacious.
White is very versatile. You can put any color with white, including white, and have a great look. While waiting in line to vote this morning, I was chatting with a man. He asked about our business, and asked about grey cabinets.
Yes! We have have grey cabinets and they are very popular, but it does limit your color choices. White walls, light gray walls ? Grey cabinets are beautiful, but does limit you.
My advice to my clients is to buy white cabinets, bring in the popular trend color in the wall color. That gives them the best of both !
