Creating a Wonderful White Kitchen

Do you love white? There’s no dispute – it’s clean and it’s timeless. White in the kitchen can be downright inspiring. If you’re dreaming of a white kitchen, there are so many options. Explore these ideas before your next remodel.

All White

Nothing makes a statement like an all white kitchen. It’s bright and dreamy the minute you step into it.

Creating an all white kitchen means the emphasis is on style and furnishings and not on colors. Select cabinets with lots of character – whether they be contemporary or traditional. Infuse them with clear or frosted glass to complement the simplicity.

Pay attention to architectural elements in the room. Use over-sized crown moldings in a white country kitchen to bring warmth and charm to the design. Add columns or built in niches to the mix. Install a tongue and groove ceiling and paint it white with a slight satin finish. When you go all white, it’s the little details that make the room special.

A word of caution, however, for those of us who aren’t neat freaks – white can require a lot of maintenance. White flooring and countertops can be absolutely gorgeous, but make sure you’re up to the challenge of keeping them clean before you take the plunge in your kitchen. Or consider mixing white with other options for heavily trafficked surfaces.

White and Wood

Mixing white with natural woods is an instant success in your kitchen. The contrast between a row of stark white cabinets and a warm wood base kitchen island is eye-catching.

Top a white island with a wood hand-rubbed finish for your counter, then add a few matching barstools and you’ll have a winner every time.

The most beautiful mixture of white and wood has to be white cabinets on a hardwood floor. It’s rich and elegant combination.

Making Them Pop

White kitchens don’t have to be all white. Infuse them with color and bold accents that make them pop. Add a granite countertop in warm colors and coordinate it with a tile floor in the same color palette.

Bring in rich red small appliances, mixing bowls, dinnerware and decorative elements for dramatic flair. Add hand-blown pendants lights over a kitchen island to carry the color through the room. Be selective and don’t overdo it with colorful accessories; just let a few terrific pieces sing your praises as a decorator extraordinaire.

White kitchens are versatile and can go in many directions. Get inspiration from the Beautiful White Kitchens Ideabook on Houzz and dream big. I think I may see a wonderful white kitchen in your future soon.
