ove white kitchens for their versatility, elegance, and luxurious feel.
Kitchens are the most utilitarian space in your home...they are also the heart of the home. White cabinets are a classic look, and a trend that is here to stay.
The beautiful and timeless white kitchen is suitable for any style, from traditional to cottage to modern.
The clean and light visual aspect of a white kitchen is useful for a space in the home that tends to become cluttered. White also lends itself to a spa-like feel, which is important since we tend to land in the kitchen after a long workday.
5 Tips for Designing An Elegant White Kitchen
Break it Up.
To break up a white kitchen and add visual interest, use a darker stain on a wood floor.
Incorporate Pops of Color
Alternatively, you may decide to choose a different paint or stain color for your kitchen island. Deep jewel tones are becoming increasingly popular - think plum, navy, or emerald green.
Don't be afraid to use brushed gold hardware, fun drawer pulls, vintage bar stools, or funky light fixtures to add personality and mix it up!
Quartz is Still King.
Quartz counters continue to be one of the most popular choices for luxurious kitchens. Not only are they stunning, but completely nonporous, making them resistant to stains. They are also crack and chip-resistant.
Play With Texture.
You may consider open shelving using roughly cut wood to bring a natural element into your kitchen. Adding wood beams to the ceiling, or a tray ceiling, adds interesting texture. Beveled or sculpted backsplash tile is also a great choice for adding a unique focal point to your kitchen.
