No worries. Wait a few years and they will be "in" again... after all, better to see the dirt and grime so you can clean up than to let it build up on dark surfaces.

Personal preference . . . trendy is fickle! 
My house had all white when built . . . it's all stainless and black with red accent wall . . . the white was WAYYY easier to keep looking clean. Like that song by Gino Vanelli, black cars look better in the shade, and that's true for black appliances too! 
YMMV, I know what I like and  zero Fs given about the Kardashians, HGTV and trendy trends . . .

If white kitchens are out...where are they going?

Seriously...plenty of homeowners still opt for a white kitchen with stainless appliances.

Trying to be too trendy in preparing a house for sale is a risk.

I'm skeptical that the trend is dead.  It has been a trend that makes me laugh though... when we entered the housing market a million moons ago, choosing a white kitchen meant was bottom-of-the-barrel-builder-grade...!

No they're not!  Some folks still want them, and  I just now chatted with a design client and she's leaning that way.

I'm glad it's official. I once was in a home in Johnson City, TN whose main sitting room was ALL white. I had black socks on and was politely asked to remove my socks

No. Not happening. Buyers are still requesting white kitchens. I do see more natural wood being combined with the white kitchens.

Edited to add that I have white cabinets with black granite. The black granite and the black stovetop of my SS range are the hardest to keep clean. The white is great!

Never, never, never is my response. Too easy of a choice for many. Want change, it will be in the design of the door or include more drawers. And the ever changing popular counter top!

I honestly can not say that I ever remember seeing a white kitchen as a Realtor in Minot ND but I would guess that your comment about keeping them clean may be right on target Peter Mohylsky. BRIX REALTY

We are still seeing them here in Denver.  I prefer darker cabs, like a clean looking kitchen.  White cabs are tough to keep clean.

White kitchens make it more open and airy. A happy place but definitely. Hard to keep clean. Especially with kiddos.

This sounds like a writer is search of a clue.
White is out and now they wait for others to suggest the 'new' in color.
I'm placing my money on Avocado. Those snowflakes were not around during that trend.
Actually, what I have seen tested with good results is an 'art deco' treatment on the wide surfaces using UV print methods that span several cabinets to present the whole experience.

Not sure that white kitchens will ever be out of style.  It is perfect for adding or changing color preferences with accessories.
