Will a white on white kitchen look too sterile and boring?
In my case I have chosen bright white glossy cabinets, with contrasting opaque white glass doors for the horizontal uppers. By utilizing two different styles of white cabinets, I’m adding visual interest and avoiding a “wall of white” with the cabinets.
Remember, having a “white” kitchen doesn’t simply mean ALL white. It can include colours such as Vanilla, Eggshell and Cream. You can also change the look by adding an island in contrasting color, or selecting appliances that are stainless steel or coloured.
Weren’t white kitchens big about 15 years ago? What if it dates itself quickly?
The fact that white kitchens were popular 15 years ago and are popular still today shows the staying power of a neutral palette. A white kitchen is considered “classic” in design and will instantly make your kitchen look light and airy. Darker wood cabinets will add visual weight to your kitchen and more likely to date your look over time.
Okay, you’ve convinced me to have a white kitchen. What are some things to remember when choosing my cabinets, countertops, etc.?
