Everybody wants a white kitchen because they’re pure, clean, and great-looking in any style. But what is it about white that’s so deeply desired? The timeless look of a simple white kitchen connotes cleanliness and brightens rooms that can be naturally dark. It can also make smaller spaces appear larger.
Here are a few ways to personalize your white kitchen and create a look that will never go out of style!
Making some contrasts
If you enjoy updating your kitchen every now and then, you have endless possibilities to experiment when you start with an all-white foundation. Contrary to popular opinion, white isn’t necessarily monochromatic in the kitchen—showcasing an interesting depth and contrast with shadow details and incredible contrast. When paired with tile accents and light fixtures, a white kitchen brings accessories and artwork to life in ways that other neutrals simply can’t.
A touch of metal
Metals such as copper, bronze, brass or polished nickel can definitely warm up an all white kitchen. Look beyond your cabinet hardware for metal options and consider adding a combination of metals with your lighting, fixtures and possibly open shelving?
Add real wood elements
Real wood adds a warm organic feel to a white kitchen. Islands/countertops, floating shelves, and flooring are great areas with the potential to add a real wood look.
A white kitchen has to be white. A great way to innovate is to incorporate variations of white. This can help to create a sense of balance that is so crucial to a beautiful and functional kitchen. Choose brilliant white quartz countertops and white laminates, or simply mix and match with other neutrals like a dash of stainless steel (like pot racks), glass-front upper cabinets or wood flooring. At the end of the day, white kitchens allow you to be creative and classy, while keeping up with the latest trends in kitchen design. Did we convince you to upgrade yours?
