Today's post is all about kitchens! A few weeks ago I showcased some black kitchens, and I recently highlighted the growing trend of painted cabinets and brass hardware. Whether your style is classic or contemporary, a white kitchen is a timeless look that feels light, bright, and airy. Keep reading to see some examples of white kitchens that range from crisp and modern, to elegant and ornate. Which one is your favorite?
Here we have a classic white kitchen, to a T: white marble countertops, white subway tile backsplash, cup pulls on the drawers, and simple knobs on the cabinets. Add some cool vintage-style light fixtures over the bar, and you're done! The glass upper cabinets keep the look extra light and airy.
I love the clean lines, and crisp simple style of blogger Elissa Toew's kitchen - featuring white quartz countertops and custom cabinets designed and built by her husband. The cup pulls on the lower drawers are a classic detail, and the open shelving keeps things interesting. You can get the full scoop on this gorgeous kitchen, including resources, over at Elissa's blog.
This spacious traditional kitchen feels grand and airy with elegant hardware and dramatic arches over the sink and stove.
If simple and casual is more your style, try this look. I love the combination of white cabinets with light wood accents. Dress it up for the holidays with a string of pretty Christmas lights.
A contemporary white kitchen is also very popular, especially in Europe. Sleek white cabinets are paired with minimal or no hardware for a chic, streamlined look. The kitchen on the left, located in Stockholm, Sweden, features a glossy white backsplash for a super minimalist look.
To mix things up a little bit, you can do open shelving instead of upper cabinets. This look works best if you have pretty, matching dishware and are good at keepings things organized. Stick with white for a neat and modern look, or go with rustic wood to warms things up. A grey stone or quartz countertop helps to break up the monotony of a sleek white kitchen.
Can you believe this super stylish kitchen was created using IKEA cabinets? Get the full scoop on this stunning kitchen remodel over on Style at Home. While the cabinets are very contemporary, the white marble chevron backsplash is an elegant detail that keeps this look from becoming too boring.
Here is another example of a kitchen that does a great job of straddling the line between classic and contemporary. I absolutely adore the chevron backsplash. A solid white countertop (as opposed to marble) adds more of a modern feel which works really well with the contemporary pendant lights and bar stools.
