White Kitchen Ideas: Pictures Gallery
Picture One: It’s a Classic
Unlike fad colors, such as 1970s gold and avocado, white will never look dated. Straight-line cabinets with hefty hardware look solid and promise longevity. In this kitchen, gray granite countertops add contrast and help incorporate the stainless-steel appliances and brushed-nickel hardware into the all-white room.
Picture Two: White and Airy
This kitchen feels refreshingly open and airy, thanks to a white-and-gray palette and the absence of upper cabinets. The homeowner added a medley of distinctive pulley lights from Europe, and an antique dish rack dating back to 1865 that was, she says, “the perfect weathered gray.”
Picture Three: Clean & Contemporary White Kitchen
Natural light abounds in this streamlined kitchen. Cabinetry from Binova creates a contemporary backdrop. Black floors ground the space. Leather armchairs from West Elm surround an oval table in the breakfast area.
Picture Four: Budget-Wise Decision
White appliances are usually in stock, and they often cost less than other finishes. What’s more, buying white appliances lets you splurge on other products such as flooring, light fixtures, and wall treatments.
Picture Five: Big and Bright
In this Arizona home, linen-covered pendant lamps bring the kitchen’s 17-foot ceilings down to a cozy scale. The owner bought the giant train-station clock on 1stdibs.com, then had the timepiece mounted to look as if it’s casually propped above her Wolf range. White marble tops the custom cabinets and island. The walls are painted Exclusive Ivory and the trim Cottage White, both by Dunn-Edwards. Bright idea: Fresher than cut flowers, a single evergreen branch suggests a larger tree.
Picture Six: Country French White Kitchen
This country-style kitchen features a large island that serves as both a dining area as well as a workspace. The white marble island top gets a sunny lift from French bar stools painted in blue and yellow and cushioned with checks of yellow and white. The blue-and-white backsplash also provides soft color and pattern.
Picture Seven: Added Weight
Dark-walnut floors, green soapstone counters, and custom stools (painted Benjamin Moore’s Phelps Black) add balance to the kitchen’s white cabinetry in this Washington, D.C., home. The built-ins and trim are painted Bancroft White by Darryl Carter Colors by Benjamin Moore.
Picture Eight: Disappearing Acts
In open-plan kitchens, installing white appliances with white cabinets keeps your range, dishwasher, and refrigerator from standing out. Avoid visually harsh dark holes without the cost of trim panels. All white can feel stark, so adding in a natural element, like this butcher-block counter, warms the space.
Whether white on white, warmed with wood, or sparked with color, white kitchen ideas blend into any home.
