Shades of white make a great background for a kitchen because they go well with all other colors and materials and textures.
Here are five different ways to add style to a white kitchen with accents and furniture to make it feel just right.
Clean and clear: Use black or stainless steel appliances and accessories or glass surfaces to create contrast. Add the finishing touches with a few brightly colored accents, such as chair covers, vases, sculptures, and brightly colored flowers.
Wood will keep you warm and comfortable: Think about using dark or light wood floors, furniture, and wall accents like decorative wood utensils (as mentioned above). White-on-white paper on one wall can add softness and interest, and a vase of flowers in warm or pastel colors can make the room feel more welcoming.
Modern and sleek: Combine modern furniture with architectural lighting (see the beautiful pendant lights below!) Abstract sculpture, art, and photography can be used as finishing touches.
Retro and chill: Appliances and flooring patterns that look like they came from the past can bring the past and the present together. Photos and old movie posters in black and white look great on white walls. Places like antique shops and yard sales are good places to look for finishing touches.
Eclectic: If you like a mix of styles, this is for you. We paint a lot of old homes. These cabinets used to be made of cherry wood! We often see great combinations of old and new. It’s your kitchen, so get creative!
No matter what style you choose, plants, flowers, and fruit bowls will add color and freshness. Use recessed lighting and unique or classic pendant lighting to make a room more interesting. Use art and other decorations to add splashes of color.
White walls go well with a wide range of kitchen backsplashes and islands. Marble, hexagon patterns, nickel or mosaic tile, and brightly colored block patterns are all popular choices for backsplashes among designers. The tops of prep and serving kitchen islands can be made of granite, marble, quartz, wood, or a combination of these materials.
White has always been a popular kitchen color, but this season, it has become even more popular. It’s a color that designers and homeowners often choose when they want something that looks and feels fresh and goes well with a lot of different things.
