Colors are great but neutral colors make a kitchen modern. According to Houzz, a majority of Americans opted for a white kitchen in 2020. Neutral colors make any space bigger and brighter and clean lines add peace and harmony. If white is not your preference, you can opt for beige or light gray cabinets.
