Imagine yourself cooking in a spotless white kitchen. It paints a great picture, doesn’t it? Not only does it look nice to have a white kitchen, there are actually several other benefits to having one in your home.
Having a solid white kitchen gives the illusion of having a bigger space. It is also best to use materials that have reflective surfaces for your kitchen. Take a white glossy refrigerator for example. You’ll notice that a white fridge will appear lighter compared to a black one. Hence, your kitchen will not only have a spacious feel, but it will also give off a light and airy vibe. Incidentally, white kitchens are best used and maintained for homes with minimal spaces.
A white kitchen exudes a classic and sophisticated look. On the other hand, it can also lean towards the more contemporary kitchens you see in home design magazines. It all depends on the colours you want to go with your white kitchen. White, being a neutral colour, will not be too difficult to match with other colours. You may choose to pair it with red to give your kitchen a warm and rich atmosphere. Meanwhile, white can also go well with yellow if it’s a bright and light kitchen you desire. Ask your kitchen designer for colour swatches. Experiment with colour combinations. Remember, the kitchen is one of the most used rooms at home. Let your kitchen reflect your personality. When in doubt, your kitchen designers will be more than happy to give a second opinion.
Not only can you match white with different colours, it’s just as easy for you to pair white with different “hardware.” White can be paired with wooden chairs and tables; granite countertops, colourful porcelains; or stainless steel sinks.
Regardless of your tastes, be them classic or contemporary, going with white kitchen designs can help achieve the look you’re going for. Remember, however, that dust and smudges will show more easily on the colour white. Hence, choose the shade of white that you know you can easily maintain. Other than that, this colour should be a great choice for your kitchen.
