White is currently the hue of choice for many homeowners choosing cabinetry for a kitchen remodel. But, just because the look is popular, doesn’t mean it can’t be unique. Below, 10 white kitchen design ideas that range from classic, to cutting-edge, and everything in between.
1. Traditional with a Twist
All it takes to create a kitchen that’s unique to you is a few unexpected details. While the design of this sprawling kitchen is based on classic concepts like painted, raised-panel cabinetry and an antique-inspired fixtures, a dark-toned contrasting island and bar area adds gravitas, depth, and interest to the design.
2. Sleek and Modern
This Narragansett, Rhode Island summer home creates the perfect juxtaposition between high-quality material and simple design. The masculine wood floors give the room a classic feel and the ultra-sleek chrome appliances and pendant light fixture add an air of modern appeal to this bright space.
3. Mix and Match
When designing a white-based kitchen, creating variation in the space is as easy as adding a few statement details. In this Cambridge, Massachusetts loft, adding industrial stools to accent a classic wooden table and placing an eye-catching graphic clock front and center gives the space an eclectic feel.
4. Light and Airy
The key to creating this eye-catching space: breaking up the monochromatic look with pops of contrasting color. In this cozy kitchen, the black chairs and patterned curtains stand out against the uniform cabinetry and light-colored quartzite countertops.
5. Contemporary Concept
This glossy kitchen and its unique, built-in cabinet design and appliances is the perfect example of how to fully utilize space in your room. From an aesthetic standpoint, high-gloss white fronts and the polished worktop of white mineral material are kept tone-on-tone, creating a sparkling look that you can’t tear your eyes away from.
7. Artist Haven
This open kitchen is spectacular not only because of its enviable light and clean design, but also because of the way the designer created an artistic air with carefully placed red pops of color.
8. Modern Beach House
This beach house kitchen has a well-curated mix of old and new with raised-panel cabinetry, sleek black countertops, and vaulted, wood-paneled ceilings that give the space depth and charm.
