Do factory made white cabinets yellow with time? I want an all white kitchen so bad but I look at white outlet covers that have turned a lovely nicotine yellow and I'm terrified to commit to white cabinets. Any experiences out there????

If you deal with a truly commercial paint store they can explain why their white cabinet paint does not yellow. You will see labels that say "non-yellowing" formula. Shellac and oil in older paints caused the finish to yellow.

@sushicue A well made white cabinet will not yellow. Outlet covers are made of plastic and/or vinyl; products known for yellowing over time.
