IDEA FILE: Tips For the Perfect All White Kitchen

The Perfect All White Kitchen

There is a reason why white kitchens have been a classic look for many years. 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.

However, some all white kitchens have a tendency to appear a bit stark, or quite frankly…a little boring. The kitchen is the heart and soul of your home, and it should make a statement, not just blend in with its surroundings.

Here are a few tips to warm up and personalize your white kitchen and create a look that will never go out of style!

Add metal accents

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.

Accessorize to bring in your personality and flavor to your all-white kitchen. Consider displaying your cookbook collection in your open shelving units. If you have a garden, rotate in fresh flowers for a pop of color.  The options are endless to add depth and interest to what could otherwise be a bland space.

Add a statement hood and/or backsplash.

A large striking range hood and dramatic backsplash could be the only major design statement you need in an otherwise all-white kitchen!

With an all-white kitchen, it’s all about adding contrasting elements and shades of color that will blend seamlessly with the white space and create a more inviting space for your family and guests.
