A history of kitchen trends:
The 80s kitchen - A kitchen of white melamine cabinets with a strip of wood on the bottom of each door screams 80s!
The 90s kitchen - Here is a photo of a typical oak kitchen with green countertops. This is definitely a trend that we would definitely like to forget. I actually inherited a kitchen very similar to this in 2005! The house was built in 2001 and the builder (obviously working without a desinger) was unaware of the end of this trend.

The kitchen of the 2000s - We are at the end of the dark brown/espresso coloured look. A trend normally lasts about 10 years and we are beyond the limits for this trend and builders still continue to install them in spec homes. Why, oh why?
So, why is a white kitchen a timeless choice? White makes even a small kitchen bright and airy looking. All colours look great with white. It's not a bossy colour! I'll let the following pictures speak for thmeselves...
