White kitchens are extremely popular, and for good reason. Keeping a kitchen in a clean, white color palette is a timeless way to design your kitchen, and from a practical standpoint, it helps with brightness and utility. However, there are SO many ways to style white kitchens to make it feel personal and fit into your design style. Whether you like bold, subtle, fun, or some combination of the three, here are some tips and tricks to designing your perfect white kitchen.
In a big, open kitchen like this one, it's a perfect opportunity to be bold with your walls. Since it is open to the rest of the home, it has less walls to cover with that tiling, and so the tile won't be overwhelming with its presence of make you feel like you're sealed in. When you add a fun tile like this to your kitchen walls, be sure you incorporate the tile's colors elsewhere, like this kitchen does with navy blue underneath the island and on the kitchen hood. This is one way you can make your kitchen feel much more cohesive.
If you have the space for it, don't be afraid to go BIG with your kitchen. Having a huge island is handy for seating and food prep all in one. You can also see with this example that once again, you don't have to sacrifice practicality for style. If you enjoy cooking for big groups and want gigantic appliances to help you out, go for it! Add in that big fridge so that you can do all your big events. Just be sure that it's not the only large item in the space, or else everything else will look disproportionately small. This kitchen with its large fridge works because of it being in a large space having large cabinets, and the large, central island. Consider the scale of all your kitchen cabinets and features when you want to go big, and don't forget that using white makes your space look larger than other colors would.
All white kitchens may sound dull, but in reality, they can be extremely stylish and visually appealing. When designing a contemporary white kitchen, consider using white in different ways. Glossy cabinets, marble white countertops, white chairs, and white tile floors help define different areas of this kitchen and show one way to design an all white kitchen.
Coastal kitchens often use a lot of white in the color palette. In addition to that, these kitchens may include bold or subtle motifs to harken back to the coast. This kitchen is extremely subtle at first glance, but as your eye wanders the room, you'll see a clown fish statue, Snoopy laying on the beach, and another painting of a figure on a beach. This kitchen shows just how much or how little you can incorporate beach imagery/art into your coastal kitchen.
In general, round and circular shapes convey a softer tone than rigid rectangles and linear lines. If your kitchen has modern shaker cabinets or a lot of clean lines, your kitchen accessories can break up any rigidity with their shapes. Rounded cutting boards, imperfect wood bowls, vases, and pitchers are all common accents that can help you create a softer tone.
Warm natural materials can transform the tone and aesthetic of any kitchen. This space uses light wood floating shelves alongside a wood kitchen island to bring in a new texture and color that reinforces the airy tone of the cabinets. In addition to that, the chairs feature another natural texture and material that connects to the wood and rounds out the room's grand design.
White kitchens often have contrasting darker elements like dark wood floors or black furniture. Like this kitchen, you may even have a dark wood paneled ceiling. When you have dark elements already used in the room's floors and ceiling, highlighting light cabinetry and countertops is a simple and effective way to balance all the room's tones.
White comes in many different shades to give you more options with decorating your kitchen. Off-white and cream-white tones are frequently used in traditional and transitional kitchens to create a welcoming tone. Consider how you can use varying shades of white in different mediums and textures to create a dynamic, masterfully designed white kitchen.
When you have a plain white kitchen, you have greater freedom in how you incorporate different colors and patterns into the room. While this kitchen takes a fairly-restrained approach with a multi-colored backsplash, you can fill out your white kitchen with bright kitchen rugs, vibrant fruits, and colorful artwork.
When designing any room of the home, it's vital to consider what the main focal point will be. The focal point of a kitchen is often the sink, stove, or an accent wall. This white designer kitchen uses a contrasting hood vent to stand out against all the white accents and act as that main focal point. Whatever you decide to highlight in your kitchen, allow it to clearly stand out as a unique, beautiful decoration.
As you can see, there are so many different avenues to take when it comes to creating white kitchens. Uses of accent pieces, wall textures, rugs, handles--there are a lot of factors that come into play when it comes to designing a kitchen. Don't take that as a daunting factor though; take it as a comfort! White kitchens can truly be a personal haven that fit your specific design style and taste. All it takes is a little bit of vision, work, and a dreamer's heart, and you can have the white kitchen you've always hoped for.
