White kitchen cabinets are a timeless choice, popular among homeowners because the bright, clean look can adapt to a wide range of style preferences. Whether your clients have selected frameless smooth-front white cabinets or white Shaker-style cabinets, their choice of hardware will help set the tone in the room. If they are looking for elegance and luxury in the kitchen, gold is the answer – even white Shaker-style kitchen cabinets take on a high-end look with the right gold hardware.
The pairing of white cabinets and gold hardware can be beautiful and striking in any home. The pair can easily be updated for a new contemporary look or toned down for a more traditional kitchen. The mix of white kitchen cabinets and gold hardware provides versatility and creativity for the personality and style of your client’s kitchen.
Here are nine combinations of white and gold kitchen design ideas your clients will love.
1. Traditional gold
Traditional gold hardware offers a “yellow” undertone. This is the default gold color that comes to mind when we think about gold. This kitchen presents an expansive white canvas for polished gold accents in both hardware and lighting.
2. Brushed gold
The brushed gold hardware on these white kitchen cabinets echoes the antique gold light fixtures but adds a contemporary twist. The muted shine of brushed gold adds a layer of sophistication.
3. Matte gold

Matte gold hardware in this white kitchen warms up the bright white cabinets. The contemporary style of the matte gold handles and pulls add a layer of elegance to this transitional kitchen style.
4. Rose gold
Rose gold is a few degrees cooler than yellow gold. Rose gold hardware works beautifully when paired with cool all-white cabinets to add a pop of color. Unlike other shiny golds, rose gold looks good adjacent to stainless steel appliances.
5. Golden champagne copper

This warm and welcoming white Shaker kitchen features pewter hardware with a subtle gold-tone. Pewter involves a blend of tin, silver, copper, and gold base colors that complements rather than clash with the room’s stainless appliances and range hood. Pewter allows homeowners to mix and match both cool and warm decorative accents.
7. Antique brass
Antique brass hardware brings an appealing vintage note to any kitchen. The brass’s heavy “gold” coloring picks up other warm accents in the room to create a warm and inviting ambiance in this transitional-style kitchen.
8. Bronze with gold highlights
This galley kitchen features bronze hardware and white cabinets. The gold highlights on the bronze hardware pick up the faucet’s gold finish and add dimension and visual interest to the cabinet fronts.
9. White hardware with gold highlights
Another path to white and gold in the kitchen is hardware that mixes the two. This unique hardware brings a welcome – but not overwhelming – touch of gold to all-white Shaker cabinets for a sophisticated contemporary look.
The enduring versatility of white kitchen cabinets makes them easy to upgrade with any shade of gold hardware. Whether your clients want a fully remodeled kitchen or a high-impact update, gold hardware can make the kitchen feel new and contemporary.
