Interior designer Becki Owens chose Shaker-style cabinets for this crisp white kitchen. "The clean, simplistic lines of this style of cabinetry not only stand the test of time, but give your home a fresh, more modern look when paired with a simple backsplash or a mitered-edge counter," she says. "I like to pair Shaker-style cabinetry with white subway tile and natural wood in either open shelving or styled accents on the counters. This combo is always a win. You can switch out your lighting, hardware and accessories over the years to play with the overall look of your space, but these key elements create a foundation that will have your home looking beautiful for years to come."
