Mastering the White Kitchen
Trends come and go, but certain designs stay classic through thick and thin. A classic look that never feels outdated is the white kitchen. It’s timeless! It can translate into Traditional, Modern and Transitional design, to name a few. It’s a look that feels fresh and clean but can sometimes become blah. I have a few tricks of the trade to keep your white kitchen from looking boring or sterile.
- Choose the right flooring. If you pick something with warm and rich tones, all of a sudden your kitchen feels warm and rich. If you’re wanting a more Scandinavian look, choose a light floor. And if you need some pattern in your life, patterned tiles look beautiful against white cabinets.
- Your backsplash makes all the difference. I’m still a sucker for subway tiles with black grout. Especially when it comes to white kitchens! It just looks so stylish. When you use white grout, the look becomes a little more traditional, which is beautiful too!

- MARBLE! Nothing looks more luxurious against white cabinets than marble. The combo is a match made in heaven. Use it on your counters and/or backsplash. You can also use it in your decor by displaying marble cutting boards and marble bowls.

- Choose lighting that makes a statement. Because a white kitchen is naturally neutral, adding statement lighting can be a beautiful thing. For a relaxed but gorgeous look, anything rattan against white cabinets looks great. Choosing larger sizes over your island is a must. Make your white kitchen the envy of everyone in town!
