A wise choice is to have an all-white kitchen. They are timeless and can be used in any style.
White can look sterile if it isn’t designed to warm it up. You can make white cabinets look more appealing. This is because you can easily enhance their beauty and transform a neutral kitchen into something truly stunning.
How can you make white cabinets stand out?
This step-by-step guide will help you make informed decisions as you design, plan, decorate, and furnish your timeless, all-white kitchen.
Use bold design elements.
The primary points of any kitchen design are cabinets, countertops, and flooring. Next, you must consider all the details that make a kitchen design complete.
You can add visual details to the white background that will add interest. Examples include:
- Open shelving in a natural wood finish
- Use stainless steel in place of white for appliance finishes.
- Use a backsplash with a beautiful pattern or texture, such as tile or affordable High-Pressure Laminate.
- Add color to your kitchen with versatile decor. This can be used for seasonal changes such as hanging artwork, vases of flowers and dish towels, or even pot holders.
White kitchens allow you to add fun touches without making it too busy.
Many people fear that an all-white kitchen will look too cold or bland. It is possible to have a warm, glazed cabinet if it suits your tastes. It eliminates the risk of light, white walls, or a washed-out effect.
A tasteful glaze picks up the cabinet angles and adds depth and dimension. The kitchen designer will help you choose the right finish to match your other features.
A contrasting island adds balance.
For many reasons, a kitchen island with a contrasting color is a good idea. It’s an excellent compromise for a partner that likes something other than the all-white look. It adds visual interest. It’s a great way to connect the kitchen area and adjacent living spaces in an open-concept floor plan.
