White kitchens have become popular again. From a lighting perspective you should decide if you want a pop of color or to continue the all white motif.

We'll show you examples of both, so you can decide what better fits your sense of style.

Not all white is the same. You have traditional white and high gloss, and some pendants work better with either style.

You can choose all white everything and focus on texture and shapes. This clean and bright design is so desirable these days. White kitchens are more versatile and more popular than they were 30 years ago.

Following are a few pendants that will go with an all white kitchen.

Final Thoughts

White is the number one cabinet for kitchens without question. However there is a difference between Shaker white and high gloss Poggenpohl, Siematic, Christopher Peacock high end contemporary cabinets.

White pendants and classic chandeliers may be better for a traditional space.  Clear, color and more modern white pendants might be better for the high gloss.

However, decorative lighting is highly personal. So, have some fun with it.
