Best White Kitchen Designs
“White is the best color to work with when designing a kitchen. It denotes cleanliness, purity and light. White kitchens add space and look beautiful. They demand a lot of maintenance, but the end result is completely worth the extra effort”, gushes Payal Agarwal of Just Interiors. White is no longer boring! There are a variety of shades available in the color to give a variety of “feels’ to your kitchen.
Pooja Bagri, a modern Interior designer opines, “White is not just a single color. It can range from a stark bright white to a soft warm ivory that is nearly yellow. You must first be clear on the mood that you want to create in your kitchen.
A stark shade of white is the perfect complement to a modern and edgy design palette with angular lines and a crisp feel. It is best set off with a stark white countertop and white or steel appliances and accessories.
A white backsplash and tiled floor can add to the look. On the other hand if you want to slightly tone down the starkness, you may want to use a softer backsplash or a warm wooden floor finish.
On the other side of the spectrum, you may use a warm shade of ivory with brown granite countertops and a wooden floor to create a warm, old fashioned but evergreen charm.
The range of white shades complements a large number of colors. While the brighter whites complement silver, black, red and blue colours, the warmer shades marry well with grays, greens, yellows and browns.
You can use textures to create a varied look. The use of textural inserts will allow the play of light on the finish and create subtle nuances.
Another good option is to mix a bright white to soft pastel shades to create a color which is mostly white and has just a hint of the base colour. The tone can be picked up and intensified by a judicious use of the base colour. For example if we use a large amount of white mixed with a soft shade of blue, the color can be reflected by a vivid blue backsplash , appliances in blue jewel tones, blue cabinets and appliances.
Nowadays premixed whitish pastel shades are available. Just pick a shade which is the theme colour in your dining or living space and you are ready to go!
White walls, countertops, ceilings and appliances contrast well with a variety of flooring ideas. Zaman of Mark interiors is a fan of warm earthy Terracotta flooring with a white kitchen. “There are options like veined marble, wood, porcelain and marbonite tiles, wood, and even bamboos, but Terracotta works best with cream walls and adds warmth and colour to a rustic feel kitchen. It is an ecologically sound choice and wears well”, he says.
A newly built or remodeled white kitchen looks beautiful. But, a word of caution. White is a very high maintenance colour. It is very easy to stain and scratch. Take good care against staining and weathering to enjoy your white kitchen for a long long time!
